Default Summit g4 post forward kit

Anybody installed one yet? Tall riders could really benefit from this when traversing technical steep terrain I believe!

Default Post forward 850G4

I am 6'1" or 6'3" with my riding boots I just installed the skidoo 4" riser block and tilted it almost vertical. I will be raking the riser back closer to stock this is the first skidoo I've ever had where there really isn't a need to have your bars further forward. I always road my sleds with a vertical block it sucks on the trails but works for when you really need to get over the front on steep hills. But with the 850 your moving front back to middle working the sled with your feet while sidehilling I don't think you need a post forward kit. Your feet position on the 850 favor middle-back opossed to forward & further forward on Xp & xm chassis. Try a lower riser block I think you'll be pretty surprised how big of a difference that makes. Before you order the post forward kit. I also finally jumped on the lower bars ban wagon last year always made fun of those guys for years, just cuz your sled looks like Bret Rasmusson don't mean it will climb like his haha. Finally rode a sled last year with low risers hated it sucks for the trail sucks going down hills. But you lay that sled on its side turne back up hill or sidhilling up and down in steep terrain it was a huge difference one of the most noticeable improvements I have felt first hand. I would like to try an 850 with low bars and a post forward kit I've been wrong in the past why stop now ha.

You don't feel hunched over with the shorter riser? I noticed yours was low. . . I went up to the 8.3" because of my aching neck. Maybe my head weighs too much...

Yeah I do hear what your saying but Iíve noticed if you donít have riser in line with post there is a terrible arcing effect when you turn that swings your bars and body off of center. That is a challenging thing to adjust for when in steep trees. In order to keep riser in line with post, and to be far enough forward in the steep, moving post forward would be the ticket I think if you are my height! 6í6Ē.
I donít think itís needed for a shorty tho.

We will see.. Iím putting one on tomorrow to try. It was hard to get my hands on though. Not in full production and available yet.

I'm rolling them back to inline with the post. And yes Adam the lower bars suck until you are climbing or sidhilling. I didn't feel the need to suck up limiter strap yesterday front didn't want to come up as bad. But we really didn't climb anything to steep snows still pretty scares lots of rocks still poking out. I'm usually not considered a short rider haha compared to 6'6" I gues I'm a little fella. Let me know how it workes out for you.

On the boosted Yamys I always needed forward bars.

Lots of wild horses to hang on to and be ahead of

The rather mild in comparison 165 to 175 hp 850 depending on who you believe allows me to sit back sort of speak. They handle perfect with the stock setup dialed for your liking. At 6 foot 2'' stock is about perfect on this sled.
