The new skis will do wonders for your 500.I wish they had them back in 2000 when I got my new MXZ 500.Now I have a 02 MXZ 700 with the new skis and love them.Corner great and eliminate most darting issues.GET THEM AND SMILE
I have them on my 02 800 and all reports are true, on groomed trails and hard pack they do eliminate darting. I do find they tend to float in powder making turning slightly more difficult. (but that's no surprise). Compared to my previous FLEX skis on my 99 FZ, they are one heck of an improvement.
I bought my 96 MXZ670 with simmons dual carbide flex skis and those things are INCREDIBLE. I don`t know if I could ever justify spending $400 to buy a new set though. I am looking for a couple of sets of used ones for my other 2 MXZ's if ayones got em.
My dealer took my old skis which were pro flex and gave me the persision for 290 cdn. He traded me for my skis (warn) and my mounting hardware (Brackets and bolts) If you look on the skidoo websight the brackets almost cost the same.
I just installed the new "tunnel" skidoo ski on a '97583GT and a '99583GT. They were two different versions of the skidoo plastic ski and I no problem with either. I'm pretty sure that the kit is set up to work on any DSA or ADSA sled. No more wandering all over the trail and steering was great. Now the front end goes where you expect it to go in a turn. I don't think that it makes any difference whether they are skidoo or simmons. They each have patents and have sued to protect them. I heard that skidoo actually bought out Simmons but I haven't confirmed that yet. The tunnel ski is fantastic.
