this will affect the rising and fall rates of the suspension, i have to think about this and remember which way taht move it to. i think it moves to a falling rate but ill look at my skid at home and think about it.

yep falling rate. you will ahve faster shaft speed the first inches of travel and slower the last few inches of travel. this means a softer FTA and probably a slightly stiffer RTA.

Crap, that's going to change a bunch of stuff. TS is right on the front shock. That's going to lay down a little. The rocker on the front of the rear shock can be relocated to a different hole forward of where it's at now. Not sure about anything else. Have to have the thing laid out in front of me to see if anything else moves. Interesting though. If you decide to go for it, let us know about your impression afterward.

If you have access to a welder or someone that can weld, fill it in and redrill.

Arctic Cat offerrs some steel plates that can be bolted to the slide rails to eliminate the elongation.. Youi could make some of your own. Wouldn't have to be to thick.
