I want to modify my sled. I am looking at modifing the cosmetics. Seat, hood etc.. Not necessarily the engine just yet. I am looking for sites that talk and show pictures of that kinda stuff. Haven't found anything yet.

arctic cat? Yamaha? Polaris? SkiDoo? They all have OEM asthetic upgrade parts. Even engine ones that don't void your warranty.
Yeah, we need more info, what machine are you modding?

I Love B&M Coasters.

I want to mod 2 sleds. 1977 Skidoo Olympique 340 and a 1989 Yamaha 340 Lt.

The yamaha I need to repair the seat, it is coming apart at the seams. So i figure. I dont use the metal carrying basket at the back so I would make a whole new seat. With a longer two up section and have a storage space under that. And then make a back rest at the back alot smaller than what is on there. My brake light would go on that. I was also thinking on forming a plug for a new stylized hood. Using wood and foam to form to the engine space and stuff I have to play with. I was thinking of using the old hood to use as a template for the space I had and go from there. I am going to use a wood base former and then apply the blue foam insulation over that. Get my shape and everything, then lay fiberglass (light weight, bunch of layers) or I might evern try this 6 meters of kevlar I have.

As for the Skidoo. It is just a fun machine and I was going to cut it down to almost nothing on weight and see what I can do with it.

I was just looking for any sites that had pictures or anything on modifcations to sleds in general. Like what I am talking about or other things like that. I have only a few sites I have found that talk about tuned pipes, etc..

Thnx guys

errr. 1989 Yamaha 400 LT.
well if you have the capabilities to do it I would say do it. I have never seen stuff custom made on sleds. Well not like that anyway. I like the idea of shaving the seat back rest thing off. Blades come with an option for a seat that has or doesn't have that back rest. I sort of like the no backrest thing but it looks like you will slip right off the back ;)
When I start and finish the project I will post pictures. I will have a back rest. Just the seat will be longer and still have the back rest. So no slippy here. Although tossing the wife off the back every once and a while wouldn't be a bad thing right?? :)
