Remove the seat, use a small gas can or tank for fuel=less to throw away. Make sure you have easy access to the plug on the bottom of the motor to drain the water. Shorten the front suspension travel, maybe narrow it if possible, attach a bouy to a rope which is attatched to the sled= after sinking just grab the float and pull the sled out. Remove all the extra wieght you can, use plastic skis, use a tether cord, run premix fuel only=remove oil tank. Make your sled as simple as possible. Should be fun!
Well I don't think he plans on changing anything on his sled. Hes running a 2002 MXZ 800, and I think he is just going to do only a 100 ft or so. He and I are just getting into the sport, and are not Mr. Machanic.
What I ment to say is do you just ride through, is there anyway to sit, and is there any speed that is best to hit it at?
Thanks for the help so far.
And if he does I will have a cam for sure! Cause if he goes down, i'm laughin.
sounds scary to me, im not a fan of water... unless im fishing it, but thats just me, i seen one guy on the water this year pulln on his sled so he was on one ski, that was crazy, one of the dealers in my area has a guy water skiing behind a sled in the middle of summer, they got a bunch a pics its hillarious
Have fun. The only advice I would know is tell him to go first.
This quote's a good one to me, my gf did that to me last year, her dad had been on this lake that is KNOWN for staying open, and she was driving her 99 ZR700, and I was on a 90 Indy Trail and she made me go first ! lol... I made it no prob, I didn't do more then like 50 feet of open water though, but after that I was addicted to running water...
I doubt i'll attempt it on my dads XC SP though... too much danger of having a gun to my head if he finds out... LOL
