Hi I have a 05 m7 and have had some rear skid issues. It doesn't want to transfer. I have herd that the geo mod is the way to go but I can't find any information on it. Does anyone know where I can find some info or have a link? Or any other advice. I have the holz bracket and I run a 162 maverick track. when I lift the back end of the sled and set it down the rear of the skid touches first and the front barly touches. front spring is set mid way and the back is right loose. Thanks for your help.

He did one for the 07 skid, and one for the 08+ skid, I don't believe it would be effective on a tsl skid.

Anybody know otherwise?

Wildchild T top post with 4-6" Rox adj riser, protaper bars, cycra handguards, pro design tether.
BR-tech Thrasher hood and venting.

And a throttle that points the RIGHT way, FORWARD!!!!

250++hp...and still quieter than a sled with a can!

PM me if you're looking for lightweight or diamond drive parts, I can get you discount pricing on BDX parts.

Thanks, I found it. Apparently it is as simple as moving the torsion spring holder back 1.5" and drilling a new hole. For any 05'(with the relocating bracket), 06', and 07' all with the torsion spring rear set up it is supposed to work.

No I just searched it on snowest.com and looked until I found it. It is pretty simple for an 05-07 from what I found. just drill a hole an inch and a half farther back in the rails for the torsion spring holder and bolt her back up.

If moving the torsion spring block back would't that create a steeper angel for the spring rod and cause the end of the spring rod to jab the track if fully compressed.
