Default What are you guys using for hood straps?

I bought my sled a while ago and have mechanically gone through everything. The sled rips! My only issue cosmetically is the hood doesn't align right. The normal hood straps fit just fine, dont bind etc. It's just like the hood over time doesn't close to the tunnel correctly. It still rides in powder just fine, belt doesn't slip etc. Just more of a visual annoyance.



What straps should I use to correct the issue?

Default Holz

Holz at one time offered a higher quality but cheaper option. Hard anodized billet aluminum post and washers with Stainless Steel hardware. I bought a bunch of them back in the day. I do not know if they still offer them or not.

Looks like your front pivot point might have gotten tweaked a bit. Bend it back and see.

The other thing that can cause that; is bottoming out the front end hard and a lot. It bends the bulkhead where it is thin below the engine. FWIW

Cheap fix is hood straps, as the value of the sled is not enough to justify a new chassis.
