    I really like my UMI in the rough stuff. It allows me to run the ski a heck of a lot harder. I can hang with the RXT/gtx's.
    But for everyday grudge racing I like my wifes RXP with extended bars and odi grips. It is more playfull aswell...

    All in all the UMI is a great upgrade.

    I love my set-up. I used to ride dirtbikes, so I like the similarly styled bars.

    Yes, Just two tricks.
    1.) Take a file and file the mounting surface on the fiberglass were the front of the umi will not clear the opening. Very little is needed and the file will do the trick nicely without butchering anything up.
    2. Steering cable needs to be bent up into the engine cowling up past the intake so to take up the slack to allow the cable to attach to the base of the UMI. Also use the outer most hole on the stem (most aggressive)!

    Hope this helps.

    I can get some very low prices on the UMI setups..especially if I order a couple at a time. Email me with what you want and I'll get you the price.

    So what are all the necessary parts and tools needed? Also, what additions such as grips would make the UMI setup better?

    Please list. Thanks.



    Then I'll see what kind of deal you could get me Richard, I might have a friend interested too.

    ODI makes some pretty sweet grips. I just got a pair a month or so ago. No need to glue them on and they can be dressed up to color match your ski colors.

    A little pricey compared to glue on grips, but well worth the cash.
