T-X - Broken Shock
I had to start this as I just picked up a brand new front shock for another forum member.
After riding in KY lake Saturday, I came back in and to my utter delight, my damn shock is broken...guess I wil be in contact with the dealer and get on fed-ex'ed to me.
How many of you with either the X models or other have had this happen?
I know I can get another one, but is there another remedy (such as a better shock available) as these stock shocks do not look like they can stand the forces of wave jumping.

A couple threads started on this one so maybe do a search. I have a P-X. No problems but read that the T-X has a lot of issues with this. I'm sure some one has a fix by now.

Shock broke on my RXPX 2 days ago... well didnt break, bent the bracket, then came unhooked. So its fixable, but broken enough to be a pain in my arse...

shock popping off
Yep, my T-X has the same issue. Dealer fixed it but keeps popping off. Dealer ordered all new brackets & shock. Will take it in when season is over.

I looked at it pretty hard and the design is somewhat weak in my opinion. Whole assembly needs to be reinforced.

Yeah... big problems with this; my TX is all fudged up in the hood piston department. Got to get working on a fix for it.

It seems alot of doos have the same problem with the hood. Mine gets fixed everyonce and a while but always seems to pop off.

Mines been off for over a month. Took it too the dealer after 2nd day I had it, they replaced the lower mounts, and it stayed on for awhile. Then the shock popped off. Took it to the dealer again, they popped it back on, went out for a ride, and it didn't last 10 minutes. I gave up. Waiting to see if somebody has a solution here. My brackets are lined up properly, so I don't know what to do to fix it.
