Default First brand new sled!!!

So now that i have a few of u guys talking what are your suggestions on a few upgrades i am on a budget not saying i can do all u guys suggest but thought it would be fun to get options and opinions for down the road like put a can on or pipe can combo ( which brand is best or leave stock leaning toward just a can HPS possibly ), change any clutching, gear down (worth it or not), narrower front end or anything else that is minor but a good upgrade

Can's an easy way to shave weight. The stock cans are stupid huge/heavy. With just about any other can, there's room for a muffpot in there.

Stock width on the Pro is fine for backcountry use. 36 is a little too narrow from what i've heard. Lose a lot of trail manners for only a small increase in performance in the deep snow.

Windshield bag is nice, the little cubby is way too small for anything but maybe a granola bar or two; the bag lets you shove a pair of gloves, hat, and fog rag in there.

Have the clutches spin-balanced. Polaris still isn't real good about doing that from the factory.

Iceage rails if you do anything dumb (like racing).

Buy a case or two of oil and ride it.

After market can for sure. New pipe and can if you can swing it. Always had good luck with SLP.

Tether, exhaust can, gear down, and probably bumpers would be on my list. Beyond that, balancing the clutch is likely a good idea. I like the idea of aftermarket a-arms as well (stock width), but that may not be entirely necessary. I saw a stock set take a pretty good beating my last trip out and came out unscathed.

It is required on the race track, which is why they're standard on race sleds.

But even those suck ... shitty rubber-cap style ones that barely make it through a season.
