Ski-Doo Snowmobile Modifications

Lowered seat:  Allows rider to transfer from side to side easier and use less energy

Tunnel bag:  Allows you to store non essential items on the sled and keep your backpack lighter

Sway bar: Disconnected or removed – Removal of the sway bar or disconnecting a linkage will allow you to initiate a side hill with less effort

Bar riser:  Height appropriate – while standing with your knees slightly bent your straight arms should land directly on the handlebars, this will keep you riding in a more aggressive position where you are ready to make body position changes quickly to keep your balance

Post forward:  a post forward kit will allow you to comfortably get farther forward on the snowmobile and have greater control over the snowmobile.

Stiffer front springs:  stiffer front springs will help keep your shocks active and in the mid range when sidehilling where they will not be bottomed out and throw you when you hit a rut or bump.
