I got a 2009 Nytro and I have not ridden it yet and was wondering should I get the tuner skis so I can put them on before it gets to cold. Or should I wait and see if I like the stock skis... I have heard the skis are not very good and havent gotten a clear answer.

Thanks

The new tuner skis are the answer for darting on the yamahas at 300 and a lot cheaper than aftermarkets

Will they improve overall handling?

everyone talks about darting..to me darting is going in a straight line and having the sled follow other people's grooves would i be correct in this? i had an 09 and i put woody dual runners on it and had no darting issues. The issues i had was general handling of the nytro the way it pushed hard into corners like i wasn't even turning the skis and to me that was all in the way the sled was made...maybe skis would help with that but to me it was the track was driving too hard and the front end would do nothing till i chopped the gas and the front end would dive into the ground then turn sharp and unexpected. i sure hope my new apex doesn't handle like that or im going to be one sorry boy that i sold my xp ski doo.

Yes you are correct. So Im guessing the tuner skis maybe a good idea but will the tuners make corners easier or just as difficult? And I think your apex will be a good ride what year is it?
