Finally got my 99 Zr 600 efi longtracked to a 144 X 2 track. Made the tunnel a little to long, but oh well. I am not going to redo it at this point.

Wow, that extension came together fast eh. How did you make it?...is it powdercoated? congrats!

At least you didn't make it too short (like I did :whistling: ). I'm just glad I angled the flap out, so it should just long enough.

Just took a sheet of .006 alluminum and cut it, then had a local shop put the two side bends on it and the rear bend. Matched the angle of the rear bend to the angle on my stock tunnel.

My sled had a towbar on it when I got it. I figured I could weld a piece of 2 X 2 by 1/8 inch angle iron to that and extend that to the back of the tunnel. That gave me a place to rivet the bottom of my tunnel down, plus let me use my factory rear handle and flap mounting points.

When I sit on it, it doesn't look as long as when it is up in the air

It has been snowing here for 24 hours, so I got impatient and just put a primer coat and two coats of black paint on it.

I think that rear deck is long enough for an ice fishing shack to ride on, so we have somewhere to rest and warm up at at noon. :lmao:

Took the money I saved buying a used track and put on a snostuff canister. Figured the weight savings would offset some of the added weight I put on, and the 6-7 extra hp would offset turning that 144 track.

Don't tell my wife about the pipe.

:dazed:

It goes in the deep now, thats for sure. I did take the extension back off and shorten it up, and then made a gas rack and relocated the taillight. A lot cheaper than a new sled. Now I am saving my pennies for a Crossfire 7 SP with a 2" track.

I still have the Stock 20 Tooth Upeer Gear and 39 Tooth lower gear. When I went with the no slip drive sprockets I had to cut the front of my rails at an angle because the sprocket teeht were hitting my rail caps.

No I don't. I just measured an 1 from the top and bottom and cut them to a parralel angle to facory. Then I notched the caps so you could get them against the hyfax .

About 95 - 96 Running Parralel to a Pickup in the 121 Config.

Last week with new clutch springs I got 86 Running Parralell to the Same Pickup.


He was on Highway, I was on snowmobile trail that runs along highway.
