I purchased these wear rods basically because they suited my needs in what I wanted in a wear rod. Fitment was a problem, however, on my 1997 Polaris XLT Triple. I had to straighten them out some because they were bowed quite a bit. Once they were straightened, the fit was perfect. All holes lined up the way they should and I was easily able to fit new ski skins on my skis because of the longer studs.
