New Winter Sport.... for your dirtbike!

My new favorite winter sport! I ski, snowboard, and snowmobile, but dirtbikes have always been my passion. The kit is a Timbersled Mountain Horse ST. It has a 120" track and can go anywhere a sled can go, and alot of places the sleds can't! This is my second season on the kit, and the bike. It takes about 2-3 hrs to swap over. I top out around 65mph on the trail, but I don't spend alot of time on the trail if I can help it. Just thought some of you guys might like it!

Everything is holding up great. I have close to 100hrs on the bike. Other than changing my oil, I haven't done a thing to the bike. In order to make it work for snow, I had to mod my air box (shrouds on the yz) to keep the snow out. I block of 1/2 of each radiator and put some closed cell foam under my plastic skidplate to keep my engine and oil temps up. I made a custom lightbar setup for riding out in the dark too. Other than those mods, the bike is just like it was in the summer. (other than the timbersled kit of course.)

I like that light bar. I sold my yz after I wrecked pretty bad. But when I get another one I was thinking of getting a wr just cause im not 19 anymore. E start and lights would be nice. This makes me want another yz lol

The close ratio transmission of the YZ (or any mx bike) works better on the snowbike kit than the wide ratio trans of the wr's or enduro style bikes.

Well 95% of my riding is trails, regardless of the snow kit (here in PA it would hardly be worth the money). Ive had yz450s for years. One was bored over and everything you could do it to. To much of a bear to ride. The other was stock minus a slip on fmf. It was a delight but I still think a wr would suit me better

Don't get me wrong, the wr's work, but the 450 mx's bikes just seem to work better.
