O where to start... !

The bar riser is a great mod already. On all my zx's i pulled the stock radius rods off the front end and made my own with swiveling ball joint ends (eyelet type). These free up the front suspension tremendously! Take out the sway bar in the front if not done already too, way easier for sidehilling. Upgrade the front skis to pilot 6.9s or simmons dual carbides for better flotation and handling. Could upgrade front shocks to HPGs. I reworked my top shock mounts to raise the front of the sled 1.5" to keep it from plowing in the deep pow. The running boards need bigger holes punched in them to avoid buildup. I also rolled mine out and put newer REV chasis edges on them for better traction and more foot room. Also installed Gold finger lefty throttles. Im sure im forgetting a lot! 700s are tough motors. maybe install some boyeson ragecages or v force 3 reeds for performance. Have fun and God Bless!

Here's a pic of the top shock bracket. I basically cut the stock bracket in half and swapped top half with bottom half and re welded. I bolted it to a stock bracket while welding to keep the holes in line.

151" track is a good length for the 700's horsepower.
