Looks like a set of dirtbike or ATV bars on a big riser? I've heard ATV-bend bars bend really easy.

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.

read here on the weak steering post http://www.snowmobilefanatics.com/forum/topic/115522/display.aspx

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!

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.

Tilt them more straight up, and put your windshield back on, it will look better. I have more rise than that on my GenII, and yes the steering post will bend, just above the stock steering support.

Ever sinse I added my "monkey bars" my back and knees dont hurt anymore and I know I can go 300mile days and get up in the morning and do another...or maybe Im starting to get to old lol

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.

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.

Wow, sweet idea, and it is simple. I'll do that to my SKS. Any brand of resin in mind?
