    Project: Ballz Deep! Under one thread~

    I was going to do a tech deal on building a mod sled and posting it on the forum.

    My plans are to take a 2005 Edge RMK (tunnel & Bulk Head) 144 and build my own tunnel, Genesis 1000cc (200-225HP) triple with pipes, Rolled chain case, changing out the rail from 144 to 159 and using a 162 track! Off setting the rear suspension a 1.5" back to give ya a better approach angle.

    I will take some pics every step of the way and post the info on the forum. I'm learning all this from a few guys here in town that have been running mod Mountain sleds for years. Before there was such a thing! Its not for everyone but if you know me......I mod everything LOL.

    OK guys. Here are some pictures of the sled. A little history on this.....

    I got the sled from BC Dan! They burnt down in his snowmobile trailer, a few years back. He was about ready to throw out the (2) 2005 RMK's (the frames) and I told Dan, "I could make a mod sled out of them". Dan said "If you put them back together, I'll give you the titles for them". OK, game on!

    So my big plan is to Fab up a custom Boondocker type tunnel, 162x15x2.25 Challenger track (off a Cat), 159" rails, Ryde FX shocks, PSI 1000cc Triple with Crank Shop pipes, Boss seat, clear gas tank!

    Yesterday, I started making my template for the tunnel out of cardboard. I'll post pictures of that here soon. I also pealed off all the burnt plastic from the sled. I even started on removing the tunnel from the Bulkhead. I'll post more as I go!!! So bear with me LOL...

    Dan, you may not want too look at this. Here are the before (dirty) and after (somewhat clean) pictures of the burnt down 600 RMK!

    DIRTY!!!!










    Clean up with soap and water!

    I finished my template for my mod sled project (the first 1/2)! Its a boondocker type tunnel for my 2005 Edge RMK. I used a good size chunk of cardboard to make it out of. I also had to compensate for the bends so it would fit right in the bulk head.

    Here are a few pictures of the template that I made..... I'll make one up for the tail end here soon! Enjoy



    Your looking at it from back to front.

        Here is my 162"x15"x2 1/4" track off a cat that I got from SW, 1100 Cat (member).



        I bought a set of Crank Shop pipes that are made for this 1000 PSI off EBay




        Also I have a coating kit for the pipes. I used this on my Turbo housing that was on my 6.9L and worked really well!!! So I thought I would try it on the pipes.



        The sled sitting on the horses. I'm getting ready to peal the tunnel off this thing!


        Here is my seat and clear tank I bought off EBay! I know, the seat needs to be re-colored again. It was cheap, so I cant complain! LOL So I dumbed it up on the sled.

          Here is the rear skid that came out of, one of the burnt up sleds. Its 144 skid. I bought a set of 159" rails from Super Dave. Thanks Dave!!!




          Here is the 159" rail on top of the 144". Kind of gives you an idea on the length difference.






          I know what your saying to yourself.... But he has a 162" track? Hows that going to work? I'm going to off set the rear skid 1 1/2" back! Why? Gives a better approach angle and gets you on top of the snow. Also I wont have to do a drop and roll on the chain case. Sound lazy, I know..... LOL

              That's awesome! What a vision you must have to be able to see something come out of a burnt sled and to make it work! Keep us posted with your progress.

                    Thanks J-Rad! It will be fun. I enjoy a good challenge and the accomplishments of it as well. We will see what happens here. So bear with me on this. Its going to take a little money to do but over time but I hope it will pay off in the end! LOL

                          Oh, yes they do! If you do most of the work yourself and buy good use parts and get deals on them. Its very possible! Its like building cars/trucks. Ask ole Pete H... He can tell ya.

                          You do need time/ patience to make this happen. If you want it done overnight and right now.... Then thats a different story for sure! JMHO

                            As long as it doesn't "Look" low budget. I can't ride with somebody that has duct tape on their sled - but I suppose I do ride with Movin from time to time! and my sled has some frank-n-stein rivet patches in it...

                              That would explain the lack of duct tape to prevent the air conditioned bibs, huh
