I am not sure if it was here but I thought I seen a Ski Doo Formula 500 that had a risor & Throttle cable extension kit. The sled looked great. I think he also put the part #'s here to. I am building a Sea Doo so I can still go sledding when there is no snow :D . When I went to the dealer & asked for the cable kit they looked at me funny :huh: .
Thanks for any info :D

Here's a link to the thread.
I got all the parts at Royal Distributing including the throttle cable extension kit from PowerMadd.
For some reason it keeps going to the index page. Just enter page 234 and all the parts are on that page (winter catalogue).
If you plan on getting the brake extension hose, get the one listed for the Skidoo ZX Chassis.
It has the correct ends and length for up to a total riser height of 8".
You will need it for a rise of more then 3" by my guestimate when we were installing the kit.
For the Renthal Bar Fatpad, go to page 151 in the summer catalogue at the bottom of the page.
These were the only ones I found that would cover the PowerMadd Riser.
I hope this helps.

Thanks guys, that is what I was looking for :D . I thought it was Ski Doo parts that I saw but I don't care if it is Ski Doo or aftermarket they both will do the job. trailblazer I'm not sure what I am doing with the brakes. I have a 96 Formula SLS with cable brakes. :huh:

I put a 3.5" Rox riser on mine and did not need any extensions. Click on my signature linked to the garage

Rotax800, you may have to limit how high an extension you put on there.
I forgot you had the 96. That's the sled we replaced with the 97.
Mainly because of the hydraulic brakes, or lack thereof.
You may want to go the route mlabudda suggested.
Start by removing the bar cover.
Cut all of the wire ties holding your cables and wires in place.
Remove the 4 bolts holding your bar in place and lift it up to see just how much clearance you have.
Have someone turn the skis lock to lock to ensure nothing binds.
Keep in mind that you need to secure the wires / cables again after you install the riser.
If you have any question, you can PM and email me.
I'll try to help you out with our experience on this particular job.

I am going to check out the cable, I think I can have one made longer. I would like to have hydraulic brakes
but I think the cable brakes will work good enough.
