Extensions

The other day I saw a sled like mine that had an extended track and tunnel. I have never seen an extension kit on a sled before, I always thought people just swapped with other sleds to get longer track. I started researching a little bit and found rail/tunnel extension kits. I'm not quite sure which way to go. I have a 98 Polaris Indy RMK 700. I'm not sure which spec is right but I've heard that these sleds are either 133 or 136 inch tracks. Here's where my questions start. Depending on which track mine has, what are my extension opinions? I personally think a 144 would be just fine but that's if I can go that long. Not sure if anyone else has done that to their sled or not but if you have what brand of extension kits do you guys recommend? Where is a good place to buy everything required for doing something like that at a reasonable price. Also where is a good place to get a left handed throttle kit for fairly cheap. Thanks for any input.

1997 Polaris Indy RMK 700
2001 Dodge Dakota 4.7L
1996 BMW 328is
1998 Yamaha Big Bear 350
1980 John Deere Liquifire 440

extensions are all quite expensive. unless you need them, id just keep what you got. for logtrack you will need all new rear suspension, new tunnel, and new track. chaching!

Tracks USA, Largest Dealer of Snowmobile Tracks and Parts is a good place to go for extension kits. The kit I bought included the rail extension, tunnel extension, and a ripsaw track for around $675. It wasn't that bad putting it on either. I went from a 121 to 136 and the ride is so much better.
