Timbersled??

Postby spitnbark » Mon Dec 05, 2011 7:07 pm

Has anyone ridden one of these Timbersleds? Just curious about how they handle? I know this manufacturer makes top quality high performance after-market sled suspension and other add-ons. Would it not be legit to take it into Maclean Creek? Track and ski??

I have done more research on my own. I was able took a look at a few setups in Turner Valley. These are seriously well manufactured, and designed. The sled kit adds 45lbs to my bike after I remove the swing arm and wheels (it varys from bike to bike). I will need to rap my pipe, and keep my carburater warm. It takes about an hour to put on. Then head for the mountains. :applause:

Does the timbersled come with a replacement air filter and filter wrap? Do you remove the air box completly? Winter riding on a 2T with a frozen carb is alot less fun.

For the carb you want ktm part number 55131003044

You really should not have posted that you have the sled kit installed. Everyone will be asking to try it.

Can I try it? :lol:
The voices are back. Awesome!

Here is a cool vid of one hill climbing.



And some boondocking



I looked at the kits and Timbersled seems like the best track conversion kits out there but still, at the $4500 pricetag, and prices of rebuilding the motor after each season since its pinned 99% of the time, it was just not worth it to me. And you can't really mount skis to it and double up. :) So I got a sled. It sure looks like it would be fun in McLean and I think you'd be legal to ride it there in the winter. Looking forward to your review of it. :thumbsup:

Good question. It does come with a "prefilter" that keeps the snow out, but lets air in. I'm told it works quite well. We shall see.

My buddy has a very sweet 950 R super enduro. He says its a "mans bike". I always respond with,"why are you riding it, then?"
Power to weight ratio, its the same as 300 xc. Your big disadvantage is you would just sink. I would say about 150-180lbs too heavy for the track and the ski. You can of course get a bigger ski, but that leaves the track that is just 11" wide and 54" long. Bring a snorkel :D Guys like to run 450's to 570's then NOS them.

So with a wider rear track and a wider front ski, it could be possible. That is what Dave and i were discussing the other night regarding the weight of the 950. One can dream i guess. That video of fresh pow pow had me drooling.

DAVE! How's that hand buddy? Are you in physio now? The pain should be a little less, I would hope. You know, you've got the perfect weapon for a timbersled. I don't know if you met my buddy Rob, on that last ride... He's got a 570, and a sled kit on order = good times. You should join us. :applause:

Will the 300 pull the timber sled? That is a pretty big track on it. I bought the 2 moto at the end of last year Blackfoot had them on sale for half price. I'm just waiting for some more snow to try it out.
