    XC 700 recommended season prep

    Hi guys I am new to snowmobiling and am looking for advice on things to inspect and check to make sure the snowmobile is ready to go for the season. I have experience working on and winterizing motorcycles and jet skis so I have a pretty good basic knowledge of the common things on those types of machines but no specifics about snowmobiles as this is my first time owning and riding.

    I have a 2002 and 2004 XC 700 that I purchased for the season, they appear to be meticulously maintained by the previous owner as he described the countless maintenance items he has done as well as spare parts that he had. I am looking to get an idea of what I should make sure to get done before the riding season actually starts. One thing I already have in mind is oil change, what else should I inspect/check to make sure my season is head ache less!

    Thanks!

    Don't always need to change chaincase oil. I do every other year. Dependent on where it was stored, always check the airbox for mice nests. Little bastards can get anywhere. Grease all the zerks. Check hyfax and carbides. Inspect primary clutch for wear and/or broken parts. Depending on how many miles its ridden, I put a new belt on every year. Performance gains from a new belt seems to always be worth it. That's a good start.
