still researching fellas....so bear with me.thanx to all that responded to my posts regarding graphite sliders and c7 sliders in place of OEM sc4 sliders. still trying to make my decision as to if i should switch to new sliders on my 05 800x with only 150 miles on original ones that appear half worn. plan on putting about 400 miles on while in canada next week. i guess my question is....how many miles have you guys gotten out of your original sliders on 05 sc4 sleds and what conditions were you riding on??? i figure in canada with early morning riding and high speeds the snow may be crusty/powdery and i'm going to take that into consideration when i make my decision. thanx to all again .....figure we're all here to help eachother out!
