  • Back it up Dude

    For the past 15 years or so most sled manufacturers had reverse available for sleds. While some of the more deluxe or touring models came with reverse others required it to be added later as an option later.

  • Billy Stannard's 97 ZL 440 Mountain Cat

    I'm Billy Stannard, and this is my 1997 ZL 440 Mountain Cat, with a 2" paddle track. This snowmachine is undoubtedly one of the best snowmachines I have ridden. The trail riding is good with it, because it turns easy and rides smooth. When we go mountain

  • Ken Belohlavek's '95 Yamaha Vmax 600

  • Indy Project Sled - XTRA-10 Installation

    By itself, installing an XTRA-10 in an older Indy is really easy. Essentially you drop the old suspension out, measure carefully for the new mouting holes, relocate the suspension mount plates, drill the new holes and bolt in the XTRA-10. Ride height is j

  • Todd Retterer's '97 Polaris Storm

    Here is a picture of my 1997 Polaris Storm. Even though the 800's will walk away from it, it's still a lot of fun. The photo was taken on Presidents Day this year up at Houghton Lake, Michigan.

  • Indy Project Sled - Late-Model XC Coolers

    Here's another mod that I did because of other things I had done to the sled. The germ of the idea sprang from the chaincase roll, which sprang from the hope of weight saving.

    Chuck Conner writes: Here is one of the many jumps we make in the Alaska Range. Here I am on a 97 XLT RMK. It had to have a new hood and I still haven't added the decals, but I have added a widening kit and fox shocks. The rack isn't all that great in the

  • Indy Project Sled - New Handlebars

    Many aggressive riders complain about the bend of the stock Indy handlebars, especially after riding another brand with straighter bars. Changing handlebars is not a particularly easy job, mainly because of the handwarmers. But if you have some other reas
