    I've seen quite a few pictures of 900s catching fire. When I was up to Copper Harbor, MI a couple weeks ago, one burned down on the trail up Brockway Mountain--and when I was going to school in SOO, MI some guy had one burn down on the trail over that way. My brother has seen pictures of a few others go up in flames that friends of his took while out on the trails.
    The one on Brockway Mtn.

    A couple of the one from around the SOO.

    Did he buy it used? Since you already have checked alignment, it may have worn out motor mounts or broken torque stop(s).

    Some of the sleds that were bought early, before updates, put a lot of wear and tear on the mounts and torque stops due to less support on the motor. Once the updates were out, the mounts were already beat up and in need of replacement. I didn't have many miles on my sled before the updates were performed and my sled has been flawless.

    This is my third season on my 05 fusion and i have never blown a belt. Once he gets everything checked out and fixed if needed, it will be a runner.

    I forgot to add info about the chain case cover. Since the cover is plastic it will sometimes warp mostly with aftermarket cans, and sometimes with the stock can. Take the cover off and place it on a flat surface to see if it is warped. If it is get a new one. when you put the new one on (or if the old cover isn't warped), a bulletin was released saying to put black rtv gasket sealer between the two bottom bolts along with the gasket. The next step to stop the warping is to buy a roll or sheet of heat reflective tape and put it over the cover.

    I have over 2100 miles on mine now had 1100 when I bought it, except for a couple of recalls (which my dealer did on my schedule) it has been a great sled.

    I do have the SLP torque arm and brace kits. Never had any belt problems either.

    Only complaints are that previous owner was a idiot, the set up was horrible would push in corners so bad you swore you were going to die! (loosened the front track coilover shock 5 min.job)
    And he had a MBRP straight through like a glasspack can on it which gives the sled a flat (lean) spot at 4500-5000 rpm just where you would ride if going slow trail speeds or when passing people going other way.

    The 900 only runs 7200-7400 RPM so it has "tall" gearing to keep top end up where it should be, this is the reason there have been some belt life issues, really easy to burn (hourglass) your belt scince it takes more reving to overcome the taller gears. Especially when loading and unloading from trailers.

    What many of us did to overcome this problem is to put the 420719 team helix in the secondary and or gear it down. The helix came highly recommended my indydan on snowest who runs Indy specialists. This helix makes the sled a little more snappy and gives it a couple mph on top too. Fairly stock sleds are running the 66/44 angle and the mod sleds are running the 70/? angle.
