Paddle tires help in the snow, you will still get stuck just not as much.

Its amazing how far a KFX 90 will fly if you go fast. 15' is her current record.

Not sure on the conversion, but that would be awesome to have nearly a foot of snow and almost 60 degrees! Sounds like a slushy mess thou!

It happens, just ask the naked skiers on Monarck, CO in July
you defintitly wont get far unless its packed hard, if it is that deep. maybe if you have skis and lower the air pressure so you get a bigger foot print Good Luck

In terms of modifications you could put oil with a lower lead number (for example 0W-40 is better for the engine than 5W-40 which is better than 10W-40) which will flow better on cold start-up. Not much else other than that, maybe if youre riding on salt/sand rinse off the bike after to get rid of the crap.

One more thing for anyone riding in extreme temps. allow the motor to warm up at an idle before riding to let the oil warm to it proper temperature so the motor is oiling properly.
