Sorry but why would you want a rear that is not coupled?
I attached a pic of the front plate once I marked the spot for the new hole. My question is do I need to relocate the plates or will it be okay seeing as the new hole is still on the backup plate.the_hog said:Just a bit of info for anyone doing this swap. If you have a sled with the Dial Adjust rear skid, you will need to move your front mount hole forward. I just did a swap on a 90 650 and it had the dial adjust and I couldnt get the skid in until the front was moved.
I just put a 136 xtra 10 in my 91 indy 500. Look on snowest for a skid i got mine for 125. also put a 1 3/4 track on....wow what a difference in the powder. Well worth the time and effort.Kiddbats said:I have a 1990 Indy 650 SKS that I want to modify with the xtra 10. It's a long track 15" x 134" I am pretty sure I won't be able to find a suspension for a long track but I am pretty sure they sell extensions. I just have no idea from what sled I should be looking to get the xtra 10 from. Any help ideas suggestions etc... is appreciated.
Skipponator, just finished installing an 03 edge suspension into a 98 XC700 with xtra-10. Actually very easy. Welded an extension bracket to the existing tunnel supports, about 2" of 16 gu sheet metal on the front side of all 4 brackets. The front torgue and rear torque arms can be mounted the same distance from the top of the tunnel to the center point of each arm which is 5 1/8" . This maintains the same approach angle as the suspensions are essentially the same height. I also installed a 1.25" ripsaw and there was plenty of room. The front arm is moved exactly 2 3/4" inches forward and the rear is moved 1.5" forward from the existing mounting holes. There is a bit of grinding to do on the existing support brackets. There is an elevated rib that needs to be removed so the rear hinge on the torque arm moves freely and just enough for the front arm to sit flush against the tunnel bracket also. I then secured the 4 welded brackets to the tunnel with some stainless steel 1/4-20 1/2" bolts with nyloc nuts (2 per bracket). The difference is amazing. Not an M-10 obviously, but much better than an extra-10. I opted NOT to move the existing support brackets forward because it leaves the tunnel looking unfinished and full of holes. Plus grinding the rib off (just a small amount) I figured adding some support to the front of the brackets would be beneficial. Nothing catches the track and I retained full adjustment of the rear axle with this mounting position. Good luck.Skipponator said:Great sticky, think you can roust up a link for swapping in an Edge in an Wedge?
