If you go GGB get the trail can, they are even almost too loud. Most will recommend to get gripper skis.

As far as a silencers go, it is my opinion Diamond S is the top dog. I have the quiet can and the craftsmanship and quality is great. I had loud cans before and now that I have a quiet one I will be keeping things quiet from now on. On my SO's 6000 is the Speedwerx L2 can, it's too loud for me especially when I have to give a ski tug, but besides the noise it gets the job done and it had held together well.

Last year was the first year I tried aftermarket boards. Unless Cat comes up with something different in the future, I will continue to add aftermarket boards. I went with B&M Fabrications and they are fantastic. Snow evacuates completely and the grip was too good in my case as the traction screws ripped two pairs of pants. When I add them to my 19 I will be going with traction blocks from TKI.

Quite a few people had issues with the rear tunnel section bending, so an aftermarket bumper might be necessary. I had a Rogue Concepts bumper and didn't have any issues with the rear sections.

I would also replace the controls with the stock 19 parts, throttle body and break reservoir/lever. I used the Speedwerx kit this year, and it was nice when it functioned but it didn't work all the time.

For skis I put on a pair of grippers which was my first time using them and I have no complaints. I didn't have any issues with darting or diving.

Many people will tell you just to ride it and that is defiantly an option, but for me, the absolute minimum would be a can and set of grippers.

Get a can and set up the suspension. Ride the **** out of it.
The only other thing I do is swap the steering to the laydown with a post forwarabd CFR bars. But that is personal preference.

I forgot to mention, as with all air shocks don't be afraid to change the settings to what works for you, this plays a vital role in the handling of the sled.

Seal the intake before u ingest snow. (By goggle bag)

Gripper skis are a huge improvement! Stock skis suck when u get a crusty layer on top of powder. Like a serious death wobble down hills.

Roll the bar riser forward till it is at 90° or a touch more forward.

Within 500 miles u will need to buy wild child's steering bushings.

If ur not yet aware, don't freak out when u first ride it. There is a rev limiter during the break in.

Is the area by the google bag the only place that needs to be sealed up better?

Those r gaping holes but there could be small gaps where the intake plenum halves bolt together. I used black RTV up in the front on the small gaps.
