Two Questions:

The Vmax suspension is killing us, anyway to beef it up--the adjustments are already at the stops.

Second, I would like to have a rack, strong enough to carry some extra gas---maybe30-40 pound capability. The only thing I've seen is the Two-up seat, has anyone seen any products?

Have you thought about just carrying like a 1-2gallon can. Just enough to get you to a station to fill up?

Thinking about that, but the we do the Tok, Alaska to Dawson City, Canada run. Only one station in 200 mile ride, so i need to carry probably 4-5 gallons....

The only way to really get your suspension good is maybe replacing the shocks with some type of after market. Fox or ryde fx. Thats a lot of xtra gas. I havent heard of a good way to do that other than a trailer for your sled.

wish i could have been more help

They make aftermarket racks that bolt onto the back of sleds to carry luggage, fuel cans, etc. Try DennisKirk.com to see what they offer for you.

Funny thing about the tow sled. The ride we are planning is sponsored by a club and they say no tow sleds. We are definitely going and if no other solution comes up, will go with a sled. I'm thinking of drawing one up and finding a shop to weld it up for me--anyone seen any plans or have any advice on how it should mount?

I can get a carrier through my distributor which will fit a 16 to 17 1/2 inch tunnel. The cargo holder is 9x9x17, which will hold a 6 gallon gas can. It has a back rest on the front of the carrier. It bolts to the tunnel I think by drilling holes. Goes for $140.

Measure the width of the metal tunnel (across the seat). I own a repair shop so I have parts distributors.
