I have a 1994 Polaris XLT SKS, it is stock other than a cobra windsheild. My wife has a 1995 Polaris XLT. Now you know I can't let my wife's sled be faster than mine, I know she has me by about 17cc's but a friend of mine told me that the sled I have is geared lower for mountain climbing. Can I change the gears to get more speed? What could I change them to? Also what else can I do to get more speed that will not cost me a small fortune.

It would depend a lot on what altitude you ride at. If you put more load on the engine/driveline by dropping a tooth or two on the bottom at higher altitudes, you would also be looking at changing weights springs in your primary to offset the extra load. At near sea level, you should be able to get by with dropping a tooth on the lower gear with, at most, just changing to lighter primary weights.

Just take your wife out in some powder; the SKS should be able to stay ahead there! Good luck...

P.S. I sent you an email in response to your request for pipes for the XLT.
