I've been looking for one finally found a dealer that had a spare . This is my first gen 4 I'm coming off of a 2017 freeride 146. I had the grip n rip brace kit on my freeride should I be doin this to the bc? Is there anything else I should consider doin or just ride it?

The minute you say lakes, scratchers are a must in my opinion. I was riding with some friends one day with only 1 scratcher and managed to brake the remaining  one that day. We came on to a large lake and the crew headed strait down the middle to the fuel station near the end. I get there 15 minutes later because I had to ride the coast in and out of the coves to find enough lube to not over heat. In the big picture they are pretty cheap I have them on all of my sleds. Not the same ones that came on that sled dont use them any more!!!

Not just for low snow, they at times are needed for hard snow.  Warmer during the day, hard freeze at night, riding before lakes/trails soften up the next day. I'm with the wouldn't have a sled without them crew.

I have a 146 BC w/2" track. Any morning that the trails were groomed the night before and the trails solidify, I need my ice scratchers as I'm one of the first ones out. Cheap way to make sure you don't need to pull over and pile snow on the back of your sled every few miles. They don't get in the way off trail.

I'm running ski doo pn 860201279. Retail is $119.99 and I believe they come with the rail clip so you can keep them lifted up if you want.

I know they work because anyone following me on the trails hates me. If it's a snow trail anyone following gets blasted with snow and ice chunks. If it's hard pack they get blasted with hard pack and ice chunks. If I didn't slow down when passing people on the trail I'll bet they would be getting pelted. I back up with them down as they are spring loaded but you no longer need to back up if the far side of the trail is not groomed, just ride through it.

thats the ones I was gonna try. I've tried the cable ones they bend up after a while and don't make contact, I've tried the ones you attach to the back of your ski the lasted 100 miles and broke hopefully these ones last longer thats alot of money to spend to have them breaking all the time.
