Could you list the part numbers you used for the swap? Thanks.it probably does panel out more but for me that's not a big deal. i priced out the parts and it looks like it's about 500 dollars to convert plus some of that cost could be reduced by selling the old a-arms.
Because the skis are narrower, you do not need to tip the machine as much to bite and hold and edge, we did not find it to panel out and if it does plus 50 degrees a rider with that skill level know how to handle it.Thanks for the video. I'd like to try the 34 inch front end, but I'm surprised Doo would narrow the front end and not narrow the sled's side panels too.
I looked at a Polaris and a Doo yesterday, side by side. The Polaris is about 4 inches narrower than the Doo, with each having the 36 inch front ends. I have a hard time picturing the Doo with the 34 inch front end not paneling-out at times/dragging more in the snow when it's on its side
What did you find Dave?
Nope currently centered is 37, so set narrow its 36, centered its 37 and set wide its 38, 2022 expert is 34 narrow, 35 centered and 36 set wideI need clarification, a 36" front end measures at 36" from center of spindle to center of spindle(skis centered) , the 34 in front end measures 35" from center of spindle to center of spindle(skis centered) ?
So it's actually only 1in narrower?
So you dont have to replace the uppers? just lowers? I bet you could cut and retap the existing ends too. Thats what you did with Alt impact kits on the Rev.using Dave's info that what's needed are just the a-arms (204.99 ea) and tie rods (58.99 ea), I used 2021 parts which won't work since they're not the shorter versions but the prices should be close.
Nope you will need both uppers and lowers and tie rodsDevoted this last winter to learning to ride better in more technical terrain and found my 2020 Expert 165 (set in narrow position) to be very good when the snow was deep, soft and forgiving; in firmer more set up snow paneling out was am issue and made the sled hard to hold a decent side hill compared to my stepson's 2021 Polaris Khaos 155 which did not panel out in the identical conditions.
Ski Doo will hopefully be releasing a new chassis next year that is lighter and narrower.
