I have never heard that thanks for the info.Mad-Boondocker said:I would be careful when going that high with the Gen II chassis, from what I have read on here once u put risers on the Gen II's it makes it really easy to bend or snap your steering post.
My buddy has 8" risers and his didnt break even so i can adjust mine from 2" to 6" so ill just go down.PolarisIndySKS said:I can almost guarentee your gonna break your steering post! To be honest, thats a little overboard for that sled!!
dtmmil said:Speaking from experience, yes the GenII steering posts are junk with risers on it, if you add risers, make sure you do something with the post, or it will bend on you like a piece of licorice!
thats doin it the hard way, take the riser to the seat dont bring the seat to the riser, although it would look cool with a missel turrent on top lol, mount a little pipe on it lolsnowdad4 said:looks good from here. now you need to add about 3-4" of new foam on top of the seat and make a bar turrett in the top of the trailers' clam shell.
I will second this. I snapped the steering column on my 99 XC 500 that I had. I had a pivot riser with 4" block. Depending on how hard you pull on them when you land they bend one way, then the next time its the other way and it then it WILL snap.Mad-Boondocker said:I would be careful when going that high with the Gen II chassis, from what I have read on here once u put risers on the Gen II's it makes it really easy to bend or snap your steering post.
Wow, sweet idea, and it is simple. I'll do that to my SKS. Any brand of resin in mind?Student Driver said:I have 9 inchers on my Dragon because I just don't sit down with the type of riding I do.
Yes, your post will bend, the inexpensive way to fix this is to mix up some automotive fiberglass resin with slightly less hardener than it calls for, plug the bottom of your post and fill it up. Whren the resin hardens, post will be much stiffer.
