Shock interchange

Looking for a set of shocks for my 2015 SP1000 Touring. It is my understanding that the Scrambler and Sportsman are the same chassis. I also assume that the touring is same as well?

I have found a good used set of Fox shocks that are off of a 2009/2010 Sportsman 850 and am looking to make sure that the fitment will be correct. It looks like there may have been changes for the later models.

'15 Sportsman Touring 1000 LE bronze mist
'13 Ranger 900XP Browning
'07 Ranger 700XP camo-sold
'06 Honda Rincon 680 EFI
'04 Sportsman 700 carb-sold
'04 Honda TRX 90 for the little guys
'01 Sportsman 500 HO-sold

Longer frame, but I don't think that the suspension is changed is it?

Can't say for certain about the newer models, but the rear shocks/springs on my '07 X2 where a much larger/longer shock than on the regular sportsman. The front struts were the same as the other Sportsman machines. You should be able to just cross reference part numbers to see if they match up.

They shortened the rear shocks on the 2014 thru 2016 XP's.A little over an inch shorter.

if they were on a 2009/2010 sportsman, then they weren't stock as they didn't start putting Fox shocks on the Sportsman 850 until 2014 for their LE model. they did start selling a Fox shock kit in 2014 which is likely what they are. they fit every model year 850 so they will work on yours.

it is also worth noting that you'll need to pick up a different radiator hose as the models with Fox shocks require a different hose due to the shock resi being in the way. the correct part number for the hose is 5414505.
