Wow, yeah I would say you need something of a handlebar extension. Don't go too tall with it though. Your steering post might not be able to take a really tall extension. Also gotta check out length of throttle and brake cables. As far as the seat goes. A sticker might work, but only for awhile. Look around your town and see if anyone does fabric work. Sometimes you can get a good deal.

I bought mine from Royal Distributing...the big ones where about $27 a piece and the smaller ones where around $26 a piece (keep in mind this is the wheel, bearing...everything is included so all you have to do bolt them up). They are easy to install. For the rear idlers, just loosen up the track tension and remove the bolt that holds the wheel on. Put on the rear wheels, adjust the track tension, and tighten up the bolts that hold the wheels on. Keep in mind that you may need 3 new idlers for the back because the one in the middle of your rear shaft will probably be slightly larger than the ones you will be buying. Not a big deal, just thought I would make you are of this. The fronts are easier yet...just unblot and install the new ones...


Go to page 152 of the Royal Distributing catalog and at the bottom you will see the idlers (#004-11686 - rears, #004-11688 - fronts) I am referring to.

Hope this helps...

Nice sled bro, Definately needs a 2" riser, some lettering on the seat (black or purple) and yellow idlers. I had a '98 Formula Z with that color scheme and it looked awesome. Try Ebay before paying retail. Good Luck!

IMO I think it would look best if you took all the decals off, and painted absolutely every single thing black, even the swing arms. But that's just my opinion.
