Yamaha VK Pro ski skins (11")
I thought I would post this here but I just installed 11" skins on my VK Pro up from the 7" standards. Wow, what a difference. I had to get them in Canada but it sure seems like it is well worth it. Reason I say it seems is because I have only ridden in my neighborhood so far, but in 3' of powder, I notice a real big difference. I'll be taking it out next weekend for a good test run but I have to say it is well worth the investment so far.
Where and how much??
I also own a new VK and would like to know where you purchased your skins. They sound like a great idea.
Feel free to PM.
I sent you the info plus a link to another good site for info.
Why need skis.
Hi Tony,is there a chance you could post that info here for all us VKers??Or PM me,sounds like a good find on your part!! Thanks,Dean

And if you look down at 4 stroke forum section you'll see the VK Professional link. a lot of good info and within this link you'll also see a thread on the ski skins with my input. But here is the actual link and contact info that was provided.
And here is my PM thread I provided to Dan.

Please note though that I didn't order from them, but I believe they would be above board.
Let me know how you all make out (good or bad.) If we show a strong enough interest I may contact Yamaha directly to see if we can get something going within the US. It is very disappointing to me that Yamaha USA doesn't have all the same products as our Canadian friends.
If this thread is to long or confusing I'll try to clean it up a bit but should get you started.
Later today I'll take a picture of my sled with the skins and post it here.
Here are some pictures of the skins
Here are a couple of pictures, I'll send a couple more
Seems to be I can only put 2 pictures at a time.
This should do it.
