yea, i could actually take my recoil off today without removing the pipe and can.RMK-KING said:They are lighter,clean up the look in your engine bay,some add slight power and they sound better then stock. I personally hate the sound of these new stock sleds,I like to hear my engine working. Overly loud is just annoyinbg though.
I also got my slp can off ebay for like a 100 bucks but had no problems with engine running wrong. I absolutly love it! It gives the sled a much nicer sound without going overboard. It seems like i have a little more power but i also cleaned the powervalves so could be a combination of both or not.Quinlan said:Depends on the situation. They claim a can will give you more power...in reality it probably won't. If you need to lose some weight, a can can be beneficial, as they are substancially lighter than stock (usually). I think they are overpriced new. I got a SLP can for my 700 this past summer for $50 or so off ebay. I finally got to ride with it in the last couple weeks only to find out the sled won't run right with it. I was quite glad I didn't pay the full $250 for it!
It does depend where you ride, but loud cans also cause a lot of problems for snowmobiles with the non-snowmobilers.MJay said:^^^^Thats kind of a broad statement dont ya think? Areas where people ride on private land and trails that go through private property means cans arent a good idea. But not everyone rides those types of areas. Only reason trails get closed here is when new houses and roads get built over them.
