Had to retie the knot for my recoil rope. I replaced the console a couple years ago and the knot must have finally slipped.
I went to start my sled one day and ended up with the recoil handle in my hand. It took maybe 20 minutes to fix. No biggie.

WOW, well lets see here I didnt need to replace anything cause I only have 200miles on for this year...one actual ride and the rest of the miles where around the house and at the race tracks. Should be good for next year.

So I am installing a 99' xtra 10. I had a fuel line rub through on my 340 sport. SO right now it has a peice of copper tubing spliced in. Come spring I will run new fuel lines. Not much for repairs in 700+ miles.

Winding down? Were about to get the best snowfall of the season, and practically only snowfall now that you mention it. As far as things to replace? Mostly normal wear items, carbides, hyflax, bearings in idler wheels, handlebars and a small spit on the rear of the tunnel on the 600. Other than that grease and chain case oil as well as a general "top to bottom inspection". NWR

you win ... not a very good contest to win at though!

replaced the bent handlebars after 50 miles on brand new sled. long story short, reverse is tricky to get used to [:)]

I need a new pipe and torsion springs so far. Really though, I should strip is down to the frame and clean everything, the re-assemble. It's pretty dirty under the hood because of the pipe insulation that's being blown everywhere haha.

My season was terrible as well, snow comes but then melts, stupide el nino. Lower east coast, I want my snow back, like Virginia needs 8 feet of snow. With the limited riding I did do, I had the fortune of replacing the drive shaft and both bearings, along with new clips, and a plate to reinforce the tunnel, for a couple stud nix. This winter was GARBAGE!
