Question Mid-travel with rotax?

So guys i'm debating a lot right now on my rhino. I have the f-18's already on my ride so for about another 2250 I can have an i shock mid travel kit to my door. My question is, if later on down the road I decide to rotax this thing, you think a mid travel kit will be fine for it? I thought about a teryx, and new arctic cat, but can't bring myself to leave my Yamaha family, since I already have a Raptor 700 and yz450f two wheeler. I also am into my rhino rather cheap so far. Other thing too is that in my Warrior I have a small slide out and I can't see if going long travel how I would have to adjust to slide my 450 next to my rhino so everything fits. I usually have my rhino up as far as I can go almost in the kitchen, then the raptor behind it and the 450 facing the rear door beside the rhino.

Nothing wrong with midtravel and more HP.

I-shock may need to revalve or respring your shocks though, call them first.

MId travel will work with the Rotax...

However here is my 2 cents on the subject...

For a stock or slightly modified motor..... The MTS Kit is perfect. A full LT Kit is an overkill. You will have more suspension than motor. A Stock motor or slightly modified motor does not have enough power to do justice on a full LT Kit.

For a Rotax (or any highly modified motor)..... a mid travel kit is not enough. It will get you by but a full LT Kit would be better. If you go with a Mid Travel Kit you will have more motor than the suspension can handle.

IMO it is all about keeping everything properly balanced.

Stock Motor = MTS Kit
Modified Motor = LT Kit

I think the rotax will be atleast a year or two down the road, so I guess i'll be going I-Shock MTS in the near future.

I have a 26fs Weekend Warrior with a small slide and my long travel rhino still fits by itself or if I put the stock front rims on and pull it in the kitchen I fit my 2 450 bikes in.

Good to know, but where do you end up tying off to to keep the rhino from moving back towards the 450's? I'm sure with parking brake and in gear it won't move that much.
