Ok thanks for the tip. I was wondering about whether the aluminum ones would be strong enough. Stainless would definitely be a good idea.Originally posted by gbaronet
[br]Have seen some bolt them one.
I use 1/4 pop rivots, not the plain one's. Look up a cherry max or hauck magna lock. You will need the big rivot gun too, it wil break the hand one's.
I have been using stainless rivots, and got this advise from the snowest guys.
haha, no numbness is not all that fun. Where do you get this tool though and how much is it?Originally posted by kittykiller
[br]I just poot EXTA 10 in my XCR and i went down to the local dealer and got the factory rivets, much better than bolts or pop rivets but it requires an air chisel and a tool that mushrooms the rivet off, VERY hard to do alone but possible, if you like numbness
Basically the XTRA-10 and -12 gave a huge improvement in ride quality over the suspensions that preceded them. They were the first "coupled" suspensions offered in a production sled. Suspension coupling is a whole different topic, so if you want, you can do some reading here. The page is a little dated, but the info is still good. Thanks to pigboy for this link.Originally posted by NewMC
[br]Can you tell me what the big deal is about the xtra-10 or 12...I'm just getting back into sledding and haven't had alot of experience with the tracks or suspension. Are these new ones wider, or more articulate or what's the deal with them?
