You should post this in the mountain sled section you'd probably get more responses.
Hey, Josh.CalypsoCowboy said:I guess buying used is a mixed bag, after dooing some research this is what I found.
The previous owner(s) did a drop and roll on the chaincase. I can't tell how much the did, it doesn't appear they used a kit as I can't see any additional material.
They put in a 151 skid out of a ZX chassis, what year I'm not sure and the track has been setback for a 156 track. The track is a 2.25" track by using the tape measure. It looks like they did the front relocation fine, it looks like the front mounting hole is back 2.5 inches and there is some additional bracing for the suspension. The middle top idle wheel has been dropped down. The back bracket is puzzling. It looks like the simply moved it back and up the rail, it looks like it was moved back about 6.5" which seems an awful lot as a result it wasn't dropped and now the track is basically hitting the cooler. It looks like the distance between my mounting holes is about 34" this also seems kinda big. So the track hitting the cooler being a bad thing I need to fix the rear suspension and at least put in some new brackets before riding season. So I have a number of questions.
1. I can't see anywhere on the track where there is a part number I could match up and see what year/model the track is from. I've been told it's on the back of the track, where exactly on the back of the track is it? Along those lines, how long is a 151" skid?
2. The 2.5" setback with the 151-156 seems reasonable. So on the rear bracket do I just plan on setting it back 2.5" or do I need to drop it? I want to measure from the top of the tunnel for my measurements, correct?
3. Since I'm probably going to have to have the track and suspension out to do these, does it make sense to add extrovert drivers and a big wheel kit?
4. If I add the big wheel kit, what is the best way to determine where I need to place the hole in the rear bracket to compensate for the bigger wheel and the extra slack I need in the track?
