Unhappy 1997 RMK 700 front end whoopsie

Hi, total snowmobile noob here needing some help.

I have a 97 polaris rmk that I purchased a few months ago and with my second outing today I had a whoops moment...

I hit a rock and I broke the entire right track off. The sled is at my buddies house now on his trailer but I will post some pictures tomorrow when I pick it up.

The actual ski appears to be ok but the trailing arm, shock absorber and all of the components that connect to the sled (torsion bar, a arm, steering links), etc. are all broken. The rods may be ok but the bolts, etc. are all sheared.

Is there a place that is recommended for parts or anybody have any leads on an entire ski assembly?

Here are some pre-carnage pics:







Thanks for the help!

I would say your best bet is to find a complete sled with a blown engine or something like that, pull off and replace all thats needed and sell the rest or keep for spares. Dennis Kirk is also a reasonable place for aftermarket parts. Too bad that happened the 97 rmk's are good.
