Trying to find the best solution to replace either a my the skin on my one ski for my 1994 Yamaha vmax 600 or even a good upgraded ski solution ..they are currently stock metal with the plastic skin but one has been damaged off so I figure why not upgrade .. Canadian shipping is needed if anyone knows any sites that are reliable or any universal skis that will work with my sled

So I am new to this to a very big extent because she's a bigger machine I'm interested in control and handling for its steering it's oem is metal skis with plastic skin but because the one ski doesn't have a skin I feel upgrading to plastic is better but currently there's mostly c a brands I can find just curious to what I need to look for fitting wise when it comes to skis for the 94 v max 600 and what ever skis recommend please put in the carbides best used with the skis

pretty sure slp can ship direct to you, i would think the slp lites are a good choice. had woodies dually on mine 6 in, another one to consider would be the mohawk , again with a 6 in dually, the mohawks would be a step up over the lites, i order a lot of my stuff threw sportmart 586-791-8140

You can still get OEM ski skins that fit perfect if you want to retain the stock look. I replaced mine last season with OEM on my 96.

But, by going to all plastic ski's will save you a bunch of weight.

Seems like my main option will be replacing er ..under a g for the sled and maybe an updated track and new skis runs good if she gives me a season I'll definitely be happy and do more before next but yeah it seems like the easiest bet without messing around with mounting kits is to get new round bars for both find the plastic skin insert and a new plastic skin for it one sides for no round bars and the other side's really worn in maybe even just take all plastic off the bastards and put new round bars on both might be the cheapest easiest bet

You can get a pair Camoplast skis with mounting kit and carbides for around 250-300 shipped or at least you used to be able to on eBay. I have two sets of those I am using right now and they are really nice skis for the money. Top of the line no but definitely middle of the pack and they can take a beating. They use carbides from newer Ski-Doos and Polaris. They have two options a trail and a mountain option iirc. I have the trail version which is 5" wide instead of 7" for the mountain.

I seen some sites sell camoplast and says it's mounting is applicable if I have the fittings from OEM which I still do I was looking to see which carbides would be good I'm gonna go with all terrain set

So here's one thing the tracks an older track just hard track no stud I plan to run er until she won't so I'm assuming some universal 6" carbides would be the best with the all terrain set

Also they use specific carbides not universal.


One of those

And for the carbides 4" would be enough of course 6" is better but with no studs then 4" will get you by just fine. X-Caliber, Woodys and Sno-Stuff all make carbides for those skis


You need this ski mount take the part number elsewhere if you want as it is specific to your Yamaha


And carbide from mfg. if you don't wanna go the ebay route


Also pay attention to this NOTE on mfg about the skis and mounting.

Note: Must purchase Yamaha collar part # 90387-106J3-00 for this kit to work with models listed below.

Show me a link

And that collar part will still be needed it sounds like. And make sure it is the correct mounting kit as Yamaha has 3 or 4 different ones that camoplast sells. Make sure it has that kit number I posted above.

Post a link please. eBay canada is different then ebay us. Will still need that collar. And you need to make sure it has that mounting kit that I quoted as there is specific ones for Yamaha. Just trying to make sure you got the right one since it sounds like you already bought it. You need to ask him if it has this kit number with it. 900MKY-2 look at the mfg site and links it has what it fits on there as well you click the + and it expands to year and models.

lmfao you bought that from a place that is close to me that I deal with all the time,lol.

You will like those skis. I have two sets of them and have had one set on 3 different Polaris snowmobiles. I run 8" carbides on the one and 6" carbides on the other but I also run studs as without them in this area I would be all over the place.
