Alright, well...semi final update


Been incredibly busy and had some life changing events happen, but despite that, the sled is still here! I finally got a chance to yard the sled out of the enclosed trailer and get the TPS set for a better idle.



I ordered up some decals from various 2020 sleds as they had a few new ones I thought fit the color scheme well. The "ASSAULT" is from the 2020 SBA tank decal, and the "146" is from the Indy Anniversary SKS. This is officially the only PRO Switchback Assault in existence! Now, she's ready to ride!


Unfortunately, it's currently -27*F so I'm going to wait until it warms up and the snow softens for a good test ride. Next week looks pretty promising!

So over a year later, I finally got a chance to take it out on the first ride! I definitely need to back off the Primary weight a bit and possibly dial in the springs a bit more, but this thing still takes off like a rocket. I have never owned a sled that can hook, plant, and launch like this one will. This is THE sled Polaris should have built. The silver sled in the pictures is a stock 2015 SBA and there is no comparison between the two. I cannot even describe what an amazing combo this entire package is. I buried it twice and fell off once so it was a great ride. Can’t wait to get the clutching dialed in and take it out again.
