Well my Cousin just bought a skid plate for his '03 XC 600 SP, So guess who gets to installe it? Yeah thats right, ME! [:(!] Anwyas, has anyone done this on the edge chassis before? Is it the same process as the older GEN II chassis? I installed my skid plate on the triumph w/o any problems, just lookin for a heads up in case things have changed in the install process.

Yep it's the same process. Drill two holes in the front for the bolts and two holes underneath for the rivets.

Rivets!?!
My belly pan had 4 1/4" studs mounted in the exact locations. I used 1 1/4" stainless steel bolts with a little red loctite, and ny-loc's on the 2 at the front.

They give you rivets with all new skid plates... In fact i have gotten rivets with all of my skid plates except one and it was already opened...

The GenII shid plate I got last year had no rivets. The mounting kit was 2 regular bolts in front and underneath I had to drill 4 holes and put these special inserts in, the bolts then screwed into the inserts.

Hmmmm both of my Edge chassis sleds are bolts and rivets... I wonder what the difference is with the Gen II sleds...

Maybe Polaris just decided to go with rivets. Those inserts are kind of a pain. That reminds me, I'm going to have to check those bolts to see if they loosend up at all.If they did will have to use some Loc-tite on them.
