03 it doesn't have the ripsaw track. So you'll have problems hooking up. I'd definately stud it (like you planned) and get some better carbides and or ski's. You ride Ontario trails it looks like and I've heard they are super flat so if you get it set up right the thing will carve like you wouldn't believe. If you know someone who's good with fabrics and foam (upholsterer) I'd custom the seat. Get some cushion in there cause the 03 seats were like boards.

Stud the track in the centre only....It has a camoplast and is very soft...trust me!

Call Pioneer performance and order a set of 2.3 springs. Run them with just enough tension that they will not fall out over a bump.

Make a 1/4 inch rubber shim and insert between the aluminum ski saddle and the rubber stopper.

Let the limiter straps out a little.

You are lucky...it took me a whole season to figure this out!

This sled can handle with a little work. You may want to look into Benders mono-shock rear suspension kit at under 1k it will make a world of difference in ride and weight transfer (though I don't know of any real world test yet). You'll still want the 2.3 springs and sway bar and links.

It handles stock better than these boards make it sound.

The shims will take the front of the carbides off the ground. If you do not shim....the sled will dart like crazy.....mostly in tight up and down trails. On TY there are some directions and pics of what you are trying to achieve....it really works.

Handlebars.....I just rotated the stock ones forward.

Yeah, instaed of just the springs from Pioneer get the whole wide front end kit for only $550. It comes with the sway bar, springs, and wider arms. I have this kit on my 05' and I love it. It rivals my SRX for cornering.
