I drive a MXZ 500 and was thinking of buying the new skis.  I was wondering if those skis are worth the by?  Are they really Aggresive?  Please give me some answers!

Could you tell me if they have them for many different sleds?  I have a 97' MXZ 440 Fan and was wondering if I could get a pair for it.  Any input will be greatly appreciated

Sorry midnight screamer...I believe that the ZX spindles are different from the S-2000...otherwise would have thought about a pair myself

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.

Midnight Screemer.  As far as i know these skis with the mounting bracket will fit on any skidoo sled with dsa and adsa front suspention.  

That is because bombardier Made the bracket hook up the same way the other one did.

I got a pair and only put them on My Mach Resently.  Wow.  It changes everything.  Now its just one hand driving.  Turning is far easier and presice.  Its worth the money.

I put the flex ski's on my 97 670 with no problem.  So Machzzzzzzz is correct, the s-2000 with dsa will accept them.

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.

A good dealer will trade you.  

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.

better the ski-doo ski or the simons ski


maybe I should post this as a new topic.

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.

Yup.  It will make you a way better driver.  Way more secure.  You will feel more at ease coming in to a corner hot.
