I'm going to order them. I don't want to have to overly worry about melting the hyfax or overheating. Seems like in the middle of the winter, there could be some other design for our sleds, but whatever. I just had my sled serviced by a guy a trust, and he said everything is in great shape, so I want to add them before I do anything negative to it.

Yup, the Duraflex ice scratchers by Between the Lines Designs. I just won't be removing an idler wheel to install them.

Well, I was at the local powersports store tonight buying some gas treatment, and BAM, right in front of my on the rack were the Duraflex scratchers. Snagged 'em, as they were the same price in the store as I've seen online. These things are VERY meaty and heavy duty looking...looking forward to getting them installed.

Question Ice scratchers???

steveg,

Have you mounted your ice scratchers yet? In checking with the product testing site the Dura Flex ice scratchers didn't do so well. They froze and stayed in a upper position and wouldn't contact the ice/snow. Also they couldn't bend them back down after thawing. There was a mounting question though on the position they were mounted on the test sled. They are supposed to get new ones and mount them according to directions. I don't know if I should order them or not!!!

I have not, but read tons of reviews and the results are overwhelming positive. I wish I did have them on, as I'll be on the pond behind my house all weekend, and it's bare ice, no snow cover to help with cooling. I don't expect miracles, but as long as it keeps the temp down, I'll be happy. I have little to lose except $75!

It is a two stroke.

I still haven't put them on yet, and have had no issues. This is now a low priority item.

Josseppi-

We have an Arctic Cat 4 stroke turbo (my wife's) that also runs hot. I put the Slidekicks on it and they work great. Makes a big difference! I use them each time we ride regardless of conditions. When my wife shuts her sled down, there is a lot of heat coming out of the engine. Super hot in there! I will actually remove a side panel when we stop for an extended break sometimes just to cool things off quicker.

For peace of mind, I would get the scratchers and use them each time. Cheap insurance.
