I would put in the newer SX skid. They had 11 inches of travel and will bolt right in. I believe 97 was the only year yamaha used the 8 inch rear end in those machines. The yamaha skid is much better than the extra 12. It has better geometry and is fully coupled. If you want a really smooth ride then use a V-max Deluxe skid. The valving is much smoother and the ride is unbelievable. The only problem is that this skid will bottom more if you are the aggressive type.

I agree, the V Max deluxe's have a great one, it doesn't bottom out as much as I thought it would and really takes the bumps well!

I agree a pro action from a later sled would be better my sxr has 11" and I never get that dreaded spinal shock and it doesnt feel like a wet noodle like the M 10
