These make a big difference? Thinking of one for the wifes sled, the stutter bumps are killing her back.

The ETS bars do help. You could try lighter torsion springs, as well. Made a difference for me.

Edit: Did I say torsion? That's not really a torsion spring. The rear springs in the skid. Yeah, that's it.

I use the Boivan ETS kit as well. It definitely helps the skid "couple" but you will probably have to go to a lighter spring as suggested. With the ETS you will eliminate the "bucking" but it will be firmer.

Yes but the fan sled doesn't use the ACM setup like the bigger ones. Even the website for the kits says it won't fit.

Mmmm. Not really familiar with the smaller sleds. I see. That's kinda hokey, that they didn't put ACM on it, but the pics sure do show it's not there. Suppose there are other differences, as well. I'd still think about trying some lighter springs, though. Good luck.

Belleville, I have the same problem. Bought my wife a 01 mxz 500fan. The sled can only handle about 150lbs on it. Any more than that, and it fades out bad. Wifey not happy with it at all. Have been surfing hard to find a better set-up for the sled.If you come across any aftermarket products let others know.

There is a standard and high perf. sc-10. ETS kit won't fit standard. Found this out the hard way also. MITTZ500 try going up to stiffer rear springs. Look at racing manual for next size larger p/n..
