I have a stock set of steel skis for a 95 XCR 440. If I put Polaris stock plastic skis on, can I re use my old rubber bumpers where the ski mounts?
That is because you need the longer spindles. Most people swap skis without also swapping for the longer spindles, and this is the result. The saddle of the plastic ski sits about an inch lower to the ground than the saddle on the steel ski. Thus when the skis are swapped your front end is now an inch closer to the ground, and at the same time the bottom of your ski will be closer to your trailing arm, that is why you heard this chatter.Originally posted by 700sks
[br]I didn't have a problem with the swap on a 96' xcr, but the difference was the plastic ski would hit the trailing arm and chatter, or bounce off of it when riding,just a little anoying that's all
