Lift Kit Install (Part 2)

Post by THX_138 » Sat Jan 26, 2008 11:55 pm

These are some pictures showing the difference from stock height
to lifted height with Danthemans lift kit installed.
Sorry about the quality of some of the pictures :oops:

To conclude I MUST add that nothing has ridden our yard since the
last snow. It was about 6-8 inches of a granulated powder witha thin
crust of freezing rain on top....about enough to hold up a squirrel or
a cat but not a dog.

I figured, what the heck...give it a shot! Across the driveway he
went, over the small snowbank and into the depths!!!!!....LOL

Seriously though....into the depths he went... and kept on going
without a struggle or issue at all. Even the first time he came to a
stop in the fresh snow to look back at me completely bewildered
WHY his sled wasn't getting stuck...
it took right off without any problems!

Lifting a Kitty is definately a cure all!!!!!!

wow no shit

well i must say thats the first i have heard about any of that stuff needing to be done and ive sold quite a few of these things
somewhere along the line someone changed your spindles ,the originals on that older sled had 5/16 bolts thru the skis. the top thread on most of the sleds are 5-16-18, how you ended up with a fine thread i dont know maybe they ran out of course thread bolts at arctic cat that day. ive also seen some plates with weld nuts and some without, ive also had a few people call me and tell me they had an m8 metric thread in top of thier spindle.
You didnt need the third bolt at all in the tunnel thats why i removed it from the original pattern the 94 and up only have 2 bolts
as far as having to cut the spindle to clear the saddle i will make a change to the laser pattern for that extra room so the next guys dont have to grind anything.
THere does seem to be some differences in some of the parts on these kitties , i dont know if it had to do with switching parts suppliers or what but i have had a lot of people tell me it bolted right in in 20 minutes with absolutely no issues.

SORRY ABOUT THE EXTRA WORK
Thanks for the pictures its helps quite a bit, and it also helps make improvements

Dans Lift Kit

Dan, wondering on your current price for the lift kit? Also do you still need to shorten the shafts or does it just bolt together?

I live in Michigan. Does Dan the Man still exist?

Does anyone have the File to make your own? I may be able to get a buddy to make at his machine shop if I had the CAD file or whatever...PLEASE come out of retirement...
