Has anyone done this conversion to their X's?

Are you spending a lot of time on or near the rev limiter in powder?
Looks like a ton of fun! :thumbsup:

For $3000 I would rather buy a good used snowmobile than desecrate my X

From my years of experience with sleds that is an oxymoron.

At least in the circles I run with.

I had one installed on my 08 X this past week (I work at a dealership). We are taking it out on Monday to test it out.

We also installed one on a R. We should have one on a 09 R soon as well.

I'll post after I try it out. I'm pretty excited!

I am in the process of rebuilding an 03' Firecat 700 sled and so far I have dropped over $3000 on the motor alone! Ya just cant find 'a good use sled' for that price! Lots of junk out there for 3k though...

I am thinking that it would be nice to have something more flickable in the powder than my 500lb, 10 1/2" sled, and this conversion looks like the ticket to me.

How much did you pay for your setup? What about the rear brake setup?
Cant wait to see your pics!

With current exchange rates, it would probably still be cheaper for someone from the states to go up and get the kit in Canada.

I get my suspension done up north of the border. The bill was $550 CDN but I was only charged $430 on my card after the exchange. I am actually looking at buying quite a bit more from my friends in Calgary do the favorable prices for me.

If I use the same rate I got, the price in USD (based on the $5195 CDN price and not including shipping) is approx $4062.

Installed 2moto kit on yz450f yesterday. I am surprised at how well this kit works. Does stuff a 50 horsepower bike should not be capable of. 2moto obviously put a lot of thought and engineering into this kit before puting it into production to make it work as well as it does. Now I don't feel so bad for spending all that $$$$ for the kit. My 2 Cents.

How much wear and tear do you believe this kit puts on the engine compared to normal use?
