This was the last day that I was able to ride, and it wasn't that great, but my dad got a great picture of me. The sled is so light and I weigh about 145, and when I pinned the throttle, the skis came up and man was it a great feeling!!!
check it out!

Not really....They are just custom unique 05's but clear coating them is in the real near future.

Great looking sled and you are right, they are suprisingly torquey.

They were such a pain putting them on! :cussing:
Me and my dad had to use a rivet gun, and the rivets were so large, and we actually broke the original rivet gun that we had trying to put it on, and then, after we got a new one, it worked perfectly. Definetly go with the holeshot skidplates, they look great and even though the rivets were tough, it was definetly worth the time!

I remember snowmutt saying something about how he had to be careful not to rivot into something when he put our skid plates on, but I also remember him saying the Zx chasis was very simple to do. Aren't you putting yours on a Zx chasis Citation?

Crnsuperduty, That's a great pic ! Love it ! :thumbsup:

On those skid plates I always use bolts up front and sheet metal screws in the back so I can take them off when I need to. On the rev's you need to be carefull to not drill into your colant line in the bellypan. The colant line is about 3/4" up off the bottom of the belly.I take and make it so you cant drill it to deep by putting some tape on the bit for a gage , just enough to get through the bellypan. ZX's are easier than the rev but still need to watch it.

There's been alot of people that had there day ruined by drilling to deep and tagging the line. Now instead of put a plate on they have to yank the motor to fix the line, sure would be a bummer to have that happen on a new sled!.

Loosen the limiter strap and adjust coupling blocks to the thinnest side.
