What is the best deal in slides, should I go with the graphite ones for around $30, or spend the big buck for HIPERFAX? Any advice appreciated.

Thanks, Mark

I would say definatly go with the HIPERFAX. Because they will last longer and you won't have to replace them as much. But then again that is my preference!!

Re: Slides

One thing to consider is the track that you have. If your track has closed windows and no wear pads in the closed windows you hiperfax will be trash on the first ride. It will also cause damage to your track. The closed windows rub against the teflon and ball-up on the slide.

So, if you put hiperfax on make sure you either have all open windows with wear pads in each, or plan to drill holes in each window to install pads.

I have not seen a performance difference in the hiperfax at all, only longetivity.

Re: Slides

I think it depends on the kind of riding you do and how much money you can afford to throw at your sled. I've had the stock slides on my 97 rmk's for over 2000 miles now with very little wear. All I ride in is deep powder were the slides stay well covered with snow and probably never heat up.The couple miles per hour that you pick up from the hyperfax is rarely (if ever)an issue when you boondocking. If you're a trial rider/lake racer then the your slides will probably wear faster and the extra couple miles per hour you get for your $150 slides may be worth the money.
