Nice lookin sled...like the black. Like what you did w/ the bars too. I like the 90 Degree hooks better though for the left...but that's just my opinion. We have hooks on all of ours...really nice actually.
I may be young, but I ain't dumb!!! (I might seem like it, but I'm not. Anyways I don't think so.) The Sled I Ride

Thanks guys for all the props. The bars are 03 pro-x bars with a 2in riser instead of the 4in on the pro-x( I don't think the cables are long enough for the 4in). They work great and I have put them on a couple of my buddies XCs as well. Let me know in you want more info on the set up.
Love some more info! I hate the bars on my XLT SP, its like holding on to an upside down V, they angle back so freakin' far instead of out nice and straight. I'm planning on getting a 2 inch riser for them and a set of the 45 deg hooks, which will help. But I'd really like to get a different set of bars, then just put these goodies on them.
I don't know if it will work on a non-edge sled but go to Dennis Kirk and get the pivot adapter and 2in pivot risor (for the pro-x) block made by Powermadd. Then go to your polaris dealer and order the Pro-x bars and handle bar pad from a 03 Pro-x. The 02 pro-x pad is a large red pad that covers the whole assembly. You can go with that if you like(I didn't). Also get new stock grips and you can also get hooks from polaris. A couple of tips. Use a heat gun to take your hand warmer elements off and either use grip glue or a little high temp silicone to reapply the elemts to the new bar. Cut the nob end off your new stock grips and put them on backwards if you are going to use hooks. The smooth tapered end will blend right into the hooks and they will look like one piece. You might have to reroute your throotle and brake cable but you should not have to add a extender for the 2in rise. I cut a 1/2in off both ends of my bars to make the 45 hooks work better when out on the hooks in terms of the throttle and brake lever, The stock snowmobile cover will also fit better. Use cable ties to hold all the cables and wires in place. I also used black wire caseing that you can get at any hardware store to enclose all of the wires. It all cost about $120. It looks like its orginal equipment. In my experince all the other aftermarket risers look like they are cheap add ons. The total increase in hieght is about 3in and you have two pivot points two adjust forward or back as well as the rise. I like them foward alittle to center my wieght on the sled for some hard trail riding. You can put the back and cruise to if you like. I hope this is clear but feel free to ask if not.
Id say if you were in need of bars, go get a set of mx bars and a nice rise like 600 was tlakin about. I stuck a set of reg mx bars on my sled, and it makes a whole lotta difference, but i also stuck a 4 inch rise on her too. Me old 94 xlt sp, she looks pretty cool. Then go get a set of hand guards and stick on there too, give that racey look to her.
