    Okay, I finally got the search to work. The part number in the past for flex forks for the Sport is 799288. Is this still a good number for the Sport 2012 model? Thank you

    The flex forks built for our Fastrak models (600213) will fit the 48" and 54" sport models. They will not fit the 42" Sport. The reason we don't market them for the Sport is because of the weight of the Sport. The Flex Forks are made for a heavier unit and what you'll find by placing them on a Sport would be like placing stiff shocks on your truck. They work, they smooth the ride, but work better on a heavier machine.

    My new 72" Super Z rides better than I could have ever imagined. The 35 hp Kawi adds weight along with the bigger frame, and the longer wheel base with the added flex forks really smooths things out. I bought the first flex forks that came to my dealer, and I also bought the first flex seat as well. I still run my 2006 Super Z, well my wife does, but the new heavier mower rides better than my older machine. The weight and longer wheel base is what I believe makes the most difference.

    If you like today's smooth ride, you'll love the ride of the new 2013 Super Z HD coming next spring, perfect time for Mothers Day!!!

    I believe we will be showing it GIE at the end of the month. Supply chain will see some after that point.

    Make it a point of letting me know when the information is available.

    I thought the Super Z was already Heavy Duty?
    What more can possibly be done to make it more HD?

    HD stands for Hyperdrive on this unit and will carry our 5 year 3000 hour warranty. We will also have a Super Z that does not use the Slipper Piston Pumps. It will still use the hot oil shuttle but 21cc Hydro Gear pumps and be our standard Super Z.
    Both units will be introduced at GIE/EXPO
