    I am having a really hard time pulling my starter on the Skandic. It does usually start after 2-3 pulls. What could it be? The compression is each cylinder is 121 & 122psi. It's much harder to pull than my 2000 Formula Z.[?]

    How long have you had your Skandic? I've got a 96 SLE (same engine)and its been a bitch since day one. Ski-Doo just used to small of a pully diameter in their recoil. Not any more.

    I've owned it for 2 years and it has about 2500 miles, about 500 of mine. Any way to improve the pully diameter?

    I also have a 1995 Skandic. I've noticed when it's cold outside (I'm assuming you leave it outside like I do) I have to pump more gas. Also have a XC 500, Skandic harder to pull, and like kevin, I had problem with the pull starter lately. I'll be looking for electric starter.
