Friday’s Fast Five: Add-Ons For A Polaris XLT Snowmobile
April 20, 2012
Filed under Snowmobile News
Welcome to the first installment of Friday’s Fast Five, a weekly list from the Snow Goer headquarters. The list will sometimes be serious, other times demented: You decide which is which.
This week’s category: Five must-have accessories for a 1995 Polaris Indy XLT Special. You can’t let your sled look like the 704,637 other XLTs on the trail, so customize it like the other 609,845 people did. Here’s what we suggest:
- A pile of colored plastic crap – That’s right, snap on your purple Rad Covers and running board trim, peel off the backing and stick on running board pads and bolt on the skid plate. You’ve quickly gone from a stock look to all-out obnoxious in three easy steps.
- Snow Glows – Oh wait, there’s more. If you really want to take your sled to “the next level,” Snow Glows neon light tubes need to be wired in and hung beneath the running boards. Nothing screamed “LOOK AT ME!” better in the 1990s than the Snow Glows. Matching leathers with checkered flag embroidery add another 10 mph, at least.
- Tinted Headlight Cover – Why keep it legal? The colored headlight covers that were so popular back then looked great, until your sled was wrapped around a tree because you couldn’t see where in the hell you were going.
- Triple Pipes – Add noise and lose horsepower. The noise was a given, but if you didn’t dial in your jetting and clutching, many riders also went slower with the pipes in place. But hey, they sounded faster, and closed some trails.
- A ”Piss On Arctic Cat” Calvin Sticker – If you had a Polaris, you hated Arctic Cat, and vice-versa. Calvin was always looking for something to urinate on at the time, so why not?
So, that’s our list for today’s Friday Fast Five. What are your suggestions? Use the comment box below.
