i got a pro x chassis without a engine, had a 6 in it. that engine is toast and i don't have enough money to rebuild it. so i'm probly gonna take it apart and use spare parts for my edge x. i was pondering and pondering if i should put my 800 engine in it. but i don't have a pipe for it, just the edge chassis pipe. would that fit? idk what i should do. still pondering. another thing i have been thinking about doing was taking off the steering post from the pro and moving it to the edge.. would it work? any suggestions would be nice.

Why dont you just put your 800 in the Pro-X chassis?

If your thinking about taking parts off of one sled to put on the other, why not just sell the Edge X and then use the money to rebuild the 600VES ProX. There isn't very many parts that are swappable from an Edge chassis to a ProX chassis (at least without work).

x2. ProX is superior to the Edge X chassis.

Edge-X is nothing different than an XcSp other than tunnel support brackets

yea i know a pro x is way different from the edge. i like that edge, and it seems to be in better shape than that pro. the engine needs a new crankshaft, rods, pistons, water pump parts, cylinders gaskets and various other parts, and i'd rather not spend thousands to rebuild it. i have considered putting my 800 engine in there, but there's just too much wear and tear on the chassis and the tunnel seems to be worse shape than the edge. i have been considering putting the steering post with the bars on the edge. i'm wondering if that's possible. i have ridden those pro-x's and they are very comfy riding standing up. but what they lose is top end speed, i've run away from these things before and i know it's just the suspension geometry and the factory dent in the pipe that makes the engine lose some power, but i do know that it could be remedied with a aftermarket pipe. but that would just cost more money to get along with the carbs and clutches. so in other words, i just don't have the money for a rebuild. my money will be going to my new born daughter over the years, so i'll probly just do that as a future build.

as i stated before i like that edge x 800 and it is it's own kind here, i don't see other snowmobiles like it around. so it's a one-of-a-kind snowmachine. i've been keeping it running since nov 2002. engine wise i like the power over the 6 of those model years. my 800 didn't have any crank issues and that 6 has numerous problems, probly due to poor maintinence. i've only changed one cyl, the pistons, the rings and the gaskets twice. although i do like the stiffness of the pro, i prefer the edge x over that pro x i have. and what kinda work are you saying? like welding and such?

Why don't you use this adapter http://www.rsiracing.com/product_info.php?cPath=40&products_id=204 then use your ProX riser block and bars, that's what I did on my EDGE sleds. It would be easier than switching the steering post from the ProX to the EDGE. This way your converting the EDGE steering post to a T-style like a ProX.
