Ok, been a while, was too lazy to do it last year but I have finally did the mods to the spindles and bushing to mount my new plastics skis from 2010 IQ600 on the old XLT580. Had to machine about 90 thou off the spindle and bushing, bolted right on after that. Rubbers were a little tight but no worse than the metal ones. Brand new carbides, woohoo, can't wait...
