part# help! the bolt hole oblonged and the bolt missing from rear skid. Looking for part# for the bracket and bolt. Looked at the fiche but unsure. It’s the right side when sitting on the sled. Rear skid mounting bolt and bracket. Also is the bottom hole okay to use? If so how does this change the ride?

I would stick with the top hole.

What year and model is your sled?

I’m getting #8JY-F1954-00-00 for the bracket and #8JP-RA196-00-00 for the bolt.

I’m not sure what the effects would be on a 2017, my 2020 came with suspension on lower hole, I ended up raising it to the upper hole and it lighten the steering considerably so I would think it would add weight to the skis/steering.

Any idea why or how this happened? That’s crazy bad.

After torquing with lock tight I mark all my suspension bolts with a black sharpie. I put a straight vertical line on the bolt head. Then you can glance over them pre ride and see if any have moved and if so re torque.
