Default 2015 M8000 Sno Pro Sidekick Turbo upgrades?

Ended up scooping up a 2015 M8000 with sidekick turbo at haydays. Sled only has 700 miles, and turbo was added at 515. Overall the sled is pretty clean minus the graphics being a little beat up but plastics are in good condition.

The sled does have one issue that I noticed when I made the purchase, the Aluminum oil tank is being held on by zipties. All but one tab has broken off, I have contacted Boondocker and they currently do not make this style of oil tank and dont plan on making anymore. With that being said does anyone know of any aftermarket companies who make an oil tank that would work with the tunnel dump exhaust?

Anyways I have been doing alot of research and think I have a decent understanding of what are the must upgrades/updates but thinking out loud I just wanted to make sure I had my priorities straight.


Current Upgrades/Updates:

- Boondocker Sidekick
- 16 Front End
- Powder Pro's
- Skinz airframe boards
- Fresh clutches
- Tether
- Aftermarket Front Bumper
- Fix/Replace oil tank

Planned Upgrades:

- Fixed steering post (will this be possible with the aluminum intake?)
- CFR Bars (6'4 so bars are a tad short)
- Aftermarket rear bumper
- AFR gauge (maybe just have display reflashed)
- Watertemp gauge (maybe just have display reflashed)
- Steel gears in chaincase
- Headlight delete? With the aluminum intake box underneath gauge cluster would I be able to delete the headlight?

Any other must do's? I am hoping to put quite a few hours on this winter both in the UP and the Rockies.



An edit the previous owner put together from this past winter.

looks like nice sled. have you considered oil delete? if you wanted to throw some coin I think it would be sweet with a belt drive, oil delete, and lightweight jackshaft from BDX. you'd drop a lot of weight over the steel gears and headlight delete route.

I have considered the belt drive but I worry because this sled will also be ridden in the UP. I understand the advantages of the belt drive but I worry the belts wouldnt be able to stand jumping onto hard pack where the chain is much stronger and more durable. The jackshaft is not a bad idea, if I can find one second hand I would be all over that.

BDX sells a plastic oil tank that bolts to the chain case with OE tank removed.

I just picked up a sidekick turbo for my 16 but from what I understand they are not designed to run below 4,000 ft. have you talked to BD to see what is needed to run low elevation?

On the Sidekick kit the turbo is lubed by 2 stroke oil.
Thats what I was told when I ordered my kit last month.
