I bought the Ricochet kit and installed it before the machine was ever ridden. I noticed after the first ride crossing some LARGE downed trees that is was a little sticky so to speak. I've used an aluminum slick coating on my drift boat last year that has been super slick and durable as well called Wetlander. It will be my winter to do list. It should go on the skid plates the same as the boat and it slides across rocks real well and holds up great. Lots of video on YouTube about it. Not sure about posting direct links so I won't. It's easy to find though.
