I have a 94 xlt I have been running in the Imp. stock 600 class I would like to put slide lubricators on it I have the bottle mounted but I do not know where on the slide rail to mount the lube lines, do I need to drill the hole at an angle through the slide rail, it would be greatly appreciated if I could get some help.

if u want to add slide lube yeah u could drill thru the rail just in the front part of the skid. what i did was add an extra fuel pump off of the pulse line worked real well. but do u not have enough wheels under it? of u do what i do now is take the sliders out and shave them down. this way u do not need lube your sliders will not even touch at all

I used to know a guy that held the 250cc world record on lake drags, they used to drip antifreeze on the slides. I don't know if they would allow this anymore, it's been several years since I've been involved.

I removed all my idler wheels except for 6, 4 in the back and the 2 on the top in the back, I have the slide lubers mounted on the front of the rail and I am using some biodigadible slide lube so there is no polluting of the lakes, last year I was getting 108 mph in 1000 ft. I think the slide lubers will help me go fast this winter. thanks for the help

We add lube to the front rails before the front shock mount. You do not have to drill holes in the rails. Try a small overflow type tank and mount on the right hand side above the foot rest. I normally just gravity flow with a valve to shut it off. You can't use anti-freeze anymore. try RV anti freeze its none toxic.
