    For your driveway you can buy ski boots that slipe over the skies so that the skags don't drag acroos the ground.

    Make sure the belt is in good condition, no burn marks or cracks. You really dont need to change the spark plugs every quart of oil. Just take them out and clean them.

    All ways grease the zerk fittings. This is probably the most critical part because these things rust because of all the salt and dirt, and water thtat get up there.

    Also give your hyfaxes a good lookig at(the long color thing at the bottom of the slide rail). Make sure they are not worn through.

    Also if you have a fuel filter go ahead and change it out.

    Well Chris I hope this sled brings you a lot of good years ahead of you and have fun snowmobiling.

    Agreed with all except above--taking out the plugs ruins their "one-time-seal". Leave the plugs in until they foul. Make sure to carry extra with you so that if they foul on the trail, or after a rest-stop away from home you can replace them with new plugs.

    And enjoy--I ride the same sled, it's a lot of fun. []

    Depends how the snowmobile uses oil. Just make sure that the oil never gets low, look at it when u fuel, and if it's below half, I would add, if it is still pretty high, it will be fine!

    ran a 92 an 93 formula an plus x.. Just check the oil when u filler up with gas and make sure its above half and your good to go.. Make sure you grease all of the suspension where its needed and it will last a long time.. I ran my 92 into the ground, never greased the rear skid since 96 was one rough winter in 2002. Another thing i noticed was the seal on the gas tank..If you remove your seat and tank. its all once piece.. The tank will have a seal where the sending unit is.. You will have to take the seat cover off and seperate the tank from it. its a good summer thing to check.. The rubber seal or whatever you wanna call for somereason leaks sometimes.. I noticed on both my 92 and 93 the seat was wet like it rained on it.. i sat down once and the cover completely cracked. the seat and foam was soaked with gas..Its just a little round rubber ring that seals the tank after the gas sending unit is bolted on.. Make sure the seals good and the bolts are tight.. Or you will end up buying a new seat cover etc. Might not be the case with you.. but i no both my sleds for somereason needed new seals.. just my 2cents.. hope everything works out for ya and happy riding..

    Use OE belts when possible. Clean your clutch faces and check clutch alignment. Make sure every grease zirt on the sled has been greased. Make sure track is not too tight. The belt if not new could have been heated up and beginning to go when you bought the sled.
