Ski dampener for proride/Axys with gripper skis.
 
2 Attachment(s)
I've made polyurethane ski dampeners for the gripper ski. Just looking if there is any interest in them "over there"

People here in Sweden have had problems with them for years now.
Have made the wider and made after the "bottom" of the ski so they don't "pop out"

I'm looking at around $45 for a pair.

The question is what they are worth, the "problem" is that I don't make them in big series yet.
So the price is going to be more expensive the OEM, but since they last a lot longer and takes more abuse that should not be an issue.

I live after the thought "one less thing to worry about"

Let me know about your thoughts.

Thumbs up!
 
The design looks great! If they are durable, it will be a five star fix! I've tried many different rubbers Such as ski-doo, C&A or Axys rubber with half a ski-doo rubber off to the side to bear some of the weight. None seem to last more than couple rides. They either get spit out of the ski or torn. Silicone di-electric lubricant on the rubbers is the one item that makes them last longer. I like the gripper ski just has a very poor rubber design.

Thats one more of the benefits with polyurethane, and why they make bushings and things like that for cars etc. they are selflubricating.

yes our dampeners do the same thing and yes theirs a interest and need for them!!! how do we order them?{web sight/store/Ebay} 45$ isn't bad to fix a problem. how long/well are they holding up compared to stock?

How soon can I get 10? Or 20 lol
That's exactly what 20,000 Polaris owners need.

My sister lives in narvik, could i pay you and you send them to her?

gulfi 12-20-2016 04:15 PM

Thats My thoughts as well.
I can sell them through eBay, and other places. But since I'm "a see away" the best way would be to find someone who sells them for me "at your end" minimizing shipping costs and time.

And that way cutting costs for everyone.

So if you know of any dealership please let them know what you want.

gulfi 12-20-2016 04:17 PM

That's only 160-170km or 100 miles so I could of course get them to her!

I like them post up if you sell on Ebay, or find a dealer here to distribute them. Have you contacted any aftermarket parts dealers. Or manufacturers? SPI, Bikeman Performance, Straight line, there's lots of othets too the distributors like Dennis Kirk and such.
I'm sure they'd sell, especially if you could lock down distribution, and manufacture in mass quantities to lower cost
GOOD LUCK:juggle:

FatDogX 12-20-2016 07:34 PM

Definitely interested as well!!

icr 12-20-2016 07:53 PM

I'd take a few sets

sumtinwong 12-20-2016 08:03 PM

get them on Ebay I sure they will sell how much is shipping?

nregistered 12-20-2016 08:35 PM

I'm in for a few

wellfed777 12-20-2016 11:26 PM

me toooo

TheBreeze 12-21-2016 02:56 PM

Id buy some for sure. The stock, and ski doo rubbers are a pain in the butt.

steepndeep800 12-21-2016 03:56 PM

Couple pair please.
Pm me how I can get them and when
Thank you

farmervanny 12-21-2016 10:44 PM

Looks like a winner to me. Maybe look into a mid sized sled company like RSI to distribute them. I would be willing buy as soon as available.

jchew 12-26-2016 10:05 PM

id like a set!

greasemonkey3406 12-27-2016 10:18 AM

Put me down for a set!!

mountainhorse 12-27-2016 12:25 PM

I would think that a smaller pro-active company like ZRP would be a good fit to be a USA distributor...and good to work with.

MKULTRA 12-27-2016 01:26 PM

I'd be interested in a set as well

Wheel House Motorsports 12-27-2016 03:11 PM

Make a bunch and get them over to a US distributor. They will sell. Yes OEM pol ones are cheaper, but it really ruins a day when you blow out the rubbers. I would gladly pay more for that piece of mind and it would be an obvious easy upgrade for someone who has blown their stockers out.

TRS 12-27-2016 03:13 PM

Same here, need a few sets.

Sheetmetalfab 12-27-2016 03:14 PM
