Default EZRyde Carve in a Snowhawk

Has anybody done this? Is it possible to fit a EZ in a 13,5" wide Snowhawk tunnel?
I know it has to be mounted some brackets for the rear shock/wheel shaft.
But the wheels on this shaft have to be moved in because of the narrow track. Is there enough clearance for the wheels between the rails and the swingarm when compressed?
Also the front swingarm mount has to be cut down. Is it possible to cut down to 340mm, or will this cut of the piece that is welded to the swingarm to protect from the track(see picture) ?

Thoughts?

This skid is one of the best of both worlds , I've talked to a few guys that have this skid that only have praise for how well it climbs and than rips across a pounded out trail .

I called these guys up not to long ago and all it takes is a lower 48 Snow Hawk to give them a visit so they can jig one up ??? Please ?

What would make it even better is if it could use the stock rails , they are as hardcore as you can get .

Other wise if you some how have one of these skids boblich , go for it and good luck .

Do you know if they have widened their hawks? Can not find any posts about it on this forum.

No they are stock width. They don't post to the forums at all. I rode the 174x3" few years ago at hawk fest. Had new 800r motor. Hauled balls!!

The way the drive shaft is in location to the front mounts you dont need those little track anit-rub tabs. From that picture I dont see why the front and back couldnt be narrowed.
I cut the track rub knobs off this holz and the track doesnt even come close to hitting the front arm

Thank you for clearing that up Newduck.

My other concerne is the idler wheels on the rear shaft. I think they have to be moved to the inside of the rails because of the narrow track. But there is no space between the rails and swingarm, or swingarm shock.

On my Holz skid I ran the upper idlers on the outside of the rails on the edge of my 13" wide track. The other option I considered was running a separate shaft for the idlers since the rear arm on the Holz was too wide to move them inside the rails.
My first choice would have been the EZryde but I'm too much of a cheapskate.

Default Ezryde

We have installed 5 of these in hawks we moved the nub rub bars and the upper idler wheels to the inside of the rails to match the rear two wheel kit and they run in-between the nubs just like the rear wheels
