Re: snowmobile powered by KX500
Hey thanks! This may be my only cridentials. I'm a sculptor by day. I don't really want a job, I just want to build whats in my head, with someone else picking up the tab. I'm so far ahead of the big 4 it's frustrating. They are heading in the right direction though. They are finally putting the engine down in the frame instead of on top of it, and shaving their many pounds. As for the seat and hood, I can't build them until I change the suspention to let me bank into the corners like a bike... It is hard to cut into a working toy with 3 feet of snow on the ground. Hard landings are not a problem. I set this up with 8" of ground clearance, and a foot of travel - two feet at the tail. THe rear shock came off my dirtbike so I really have more suspention than nerve. The motormounts were no problem, and the centrifical clutch was easy. I didn't use one. I thought it might be fun to bang gears on snow... it is!
