    Hello,
    I have a 2008 Apex MTX SE 163 and after 715 miles the sliders are worn to the wear line in a couple spots. I am looking to replace them, but cannot seem to find the same length slides anywhere. The ones on the sled now measure approx 63" and every website I have found that has slides that would fit the profile are 56 7/8" long. Does anyone know anywhere that sells longer slides that will fit a 163" Apex MTX? Alternatively, will it hurt anything to install the shorter slides?

    Thanks!

    Wow... I would have thought all of you MTX owners would have a solid source for sliders since it seems these sleds chew through them rather quickly. If anyone can help, I would greatly appreciate it. My local dealer recommends replacing with 56.87" sliders but I would be losing about 6" of slider. Does that matter at all?

    it depends where they end. in the aftermarket catoulouge i use, they spec the same slides for my xtx as the mtx. i usually have to trim them down for the 11 xtx. as to duponts, i hear they have discontinued them for the mtx's. i do not use them personally as i got 10000 miles on the cheap kimpex slides on the 2011 xtx.

    I'm sure Port Yamaha can help. Try messaging them or call. Kevin is SUPER at finding stuff like this. Shoot, he might KNOW the length right away.

    Viper Dave - Are you referring to Port Yamaha in Wisconsin?

    Maim - do you remember approximately how much you had to cut off to fit the XTX?
