Well, I went for a short ride (around the lake) today for some entertainment so I took a couple pics of the Zr after.

1999 Zr 500 EFI
- 4500 Miles
- 120 Woody's 5/16" Gold Digger Studs
- 2" Riser
- Suspension Dropped 2"
- Sportech Handguards (These are great for keeping fingers warm with the riser installed.)

I will post some action shots the next time I get a chance to ride (in more than 3 inches of snow).

Cobra- Why did you drop the suspension 2"? Just curioius.
I wanted to get more floatation for powder riding. Generally when we go to Michigan I try to spend as little time on the trials and more time off the trails in the powder. Have a couple inches of extra clearance helps out. In addition... it looks cool. ;)

Oh, btw. If you would like a sticker, just e-mail me at [email protected] and I can send you a 12" windshield sticker for $5 shipped. I pay about $5 a piece for them, which is cost from the printer place. I know the guy that owns the shop and he gives them to me at cost. :D

They really do look great. I have smaller sizes as well for on the tunnel or where ever. Those cost like $2 each and are around 7" wide.

I will try get a better pic of the stickers when Dano brings our digicam back from Minneapolis. He is down there doing some sled mods with his cousin right now. ;)

Yeah it is stock, i work and ride directly with cobra. We since put a 1.5 track on it. Cobra has done things with that sled in the deep and steep i could never do. It is really a comfortable ride. I am a polaris fan however i will give the zr credit in a lot of areas.

On the back suspension bolts there are two holes. (where the supension connects to the tunnel that is) One on top of the other. The stock is the upper bolt, we put the backs bolts in the lower (closer to the ground) position, thus giving the sled 2 inches hire, but no gain in travel or clearance in the tunnel cause the front stay the same. We still had to notch the track so it would clear upfront. IT is really easy to do and looks cool
