I am new to snowmobiling, I have a 2000 Polaris spxc 600, my wife has a 1990 yamaha phazer II. at the end of the season last year I put stabil in with the gas and closed the fuel off. now today I went in the garage, turned the fuel on and they both started right up, so I let them run for a bit, sounded good, smelled better. so all I was thinking was to check fluids, change plugs and belts, what else should I do to ensure a nice season like last year with no break downs? thanks for any input, like I said I'm learing, and thanks.[thumb]

^not a bad list, may want to add...
Clean the VES and check the bellows to make sure they are not riped
Coolant drain wouldnt hurt
Get a can of Sea Foam and add that to your first tank of gas
Should be good

Its better then stabil, you can run it in anything...car, boat, tractor, lawnmower andything. It helps keep the fuel from breaking apart over time. Cleans out injecters and what not. It has a chart on the can per gallons of gas. Its in a white can, Autozone and Napa carries it.
