My nephew sent me this and said I should make one. After toying with the idea and taking into consideration the fact that I have a zx6 that would be perfect for this, I’m thinking I might do it. I looked at a few snowbike forums and a lot of people were saying that a 1000 is overkill for something like this because it just constantly spins the track and digs into the snow. They were also saying that around 100hp is the perfect amount of juice, which I’m assuming is why a lot of them use a turbo on a 450 (also because of riding at high elevation). Yes it will be heavier, but it will be far more reliable and cheaper to maintain. My only question is, would anyone see value in something like that? If I sink 3-4 grand into a track, a front end from a dirtbike, and all the bushings and machine work, could I turn around and sell it for 5-6,000? I mean every snow bike I look at for sale is basically listed at the price of the dirtbike plus the snow kit. My main fear is this ending up costing me a bunch of money that I will never see again. I mean I’ll probably destroy it, riding the piss out of it and it will end up being worth nothing anyway, but I was just curious if anyone would actually buy something like that.
