    Default Plastic skis on vmax 600 95

    i have a question for the experts aroud here.

    Today i did put plastic skis on my vmax 95 out of a RX-1.
    All the job went good but one thing is missing in the page about
    the modification here:

    http://www.totallyamaha.com/snowmobi...maxSkisrx1.htm

    I didn't put back any ski bumper under the spindles,is it bad for the suspension,bolt or saddles?
    Cause on photos that explain how to do it,it seems there is no rubber between ski and spindles..
    could someone light me up on this.. and if i have to put rubbers again,i just cut my old one to fit there?

    i've made a run of 4 hours with it and it's day N night versus my old skis,it handles like a gokart,really love it.

    I put rx-1 skis on a 96 xt this fall, They are way better than the old steel skis. I also did not put the rubber bumpers, I was going to shave them down to fit, but never did. I can't see that it needs them.
    If it ain't broke... you're not riding hard enough!

    I did this mod and just put a flat rubber pad under it, about 1/4". Seemed to work fine.

    I wouldn't go bigger then 1" if your going to stud. Depending on track you will have to trim the lugs at the windows so they don't rub heat exchanger protectors. No biggie did this to all my tracks that I had studded.
