You will need rubbers from a ZX chassis Doo. Pop the bushings out of the skis and put them in from the other direction, thats it. I think the slydog ski rubbers work too, Ulmer sells those.

Wich bolt should I use?
The one that's already on the sled or the one that comes with the Pilot skis?

I used the zx rubbers and just traced my stock yama rubbers then cut the zx ones to match... Used the stock bolt, so far so good. I am still running crap carbides on mine as conditions aren't good here yet.

you will love these skis. make sure to shim the back as well as take some of the ski pressure off. i too am using standard carbides down the centre and cannot believe the handeling with these. i have not seen any damage but a bunch of the guys have warned me about running them without the outside carbides and how the skis will get damaged so i will be installing some in the outside channel

So are you ordering the install kit from Skidoo or just using the stock bolts and then finding rubbers to fit. The kits look complete?

I am on my second season on pilots and LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I picked up TWO sets for $200 from some dumb ass who put junk old aftermarket skiis on his 2 08 Doos!!!! What a deal. 1243% improvement over the yamaha skiis even with woody doolies on them. I just broke off both inner carbides on the last ride and have to replace them.

I can't see improvement going to aftermarket skiis over the pilots....especially for the price.

I would like to try the 6.9 version next when these wear out.

Looked at the skidoo online store and I find a fastener kit with carbide and rubbers.

http://store.ski-doo.com/product/382492/860510800/_/Pilot_5.7_%26_6.9_Fastener_Kit

Would that kit be useful for instalation?

Ok guys, I find the answers to all of my question.
Some other guy replied to a post yesterday and had all the step by step to the Pilot ski intalation.
So now I know exacly where I stand. Nice to see that my Yammi loop will also fit those skis.

If you get the slydog rubbers, you don't have to trim them and they are cheaper. Like $10 and fit perfect.

I bought NEW rubbers from my local ski doo repair guy for $10 each and he had them in stock....which meant no shipping.

Wow, I originally bought the skidoo rubbers from the local dealer for $16 each. Didn't like the idea of having to cut them so I bought the slydog ones. I got raped at the skidoo dealer it looks like.
