Rtx Le
Mid hight windshield
Jt 4 wheel kit
Ice scratchers
4 studs per row. Not sure length or brand. Had great luck with 1.45 woodys on my xf 9000 for 3500 miles.
Exhaust
Windshield bag and larger tunnel bag.
Not sure how the tuner skis work but I like how the snowtrackers worked on my last 2 turbo cats. So we will see. I hate darting!
This will keep me content till the tunes get tested. Hopefully I can hold out till next yr or its enough power with just an exhaust and no tune needed.
Hopefully the clutching is good stock otherwise a good aftermarket clutch setup as well.

I think the cat skis are much better than the tuners to start with...

anyone know if the cat windshields and yam windshields / windshield bags are interchangeable?

Ive got a new cat windshield bag and wouldnt mind the cat medium windshield if anyone knows if they would fit?

Cat windshields were a direct fit in on the viper... can't see this being any different. Ended up running a cat medium back in 14 when Yamaha couldn't get accessories on the shelves.

Also put 5500ish miles on The ice attak xt on the viper, and it still looks brand new other than some of the corners rounding up a bit.

Good to know on the windshield...power level on the turbo might be a little too much for a single ply

Guess it's all in how hard you run her...you can't really hook up hard out of the hole...so that's out...and in the past, top speed and single ply tracks weren't a good thing...but for general cruising is an awesome track...

Most who buy a turbo want to race here and there ...and to me that takes that option and tosses it out the window...

Done right..and in proper quantity..stud failure is very low risk...here's my sled from last year which I'll do the same to the sidewinder

Not really the line em up a race kinda guy. More so an aggressive trail rider not a lake racer. Like to be able to cut her loose when need be. And as long as I'm coming around everyone on the big end of a lake crossing ill be happy. On my viper the XT was more than enough for the 150 ish hp it made
