I went to my buddies house last night, and he said he had my extra helmet still from last winter. So we got to talkin about sleddin, and now i'm all pumped for the season. My sled is still in storage though :-( I got a couple things to fix on it before the snow flies though.

1. New pipe. The coupling has rusted, so now some of the exaust never makes it into the pipe, which makes it very loud.
2. Locktite skid screws, I had alot come loose on me last season :-(
3. Try to get my damn seccondary clutch and primary clutch off, so i can rebuild them.
4. Rebend my rear bumber since my stupid friend rear-ended me.
5. secure my front bumper, it's kinda loose.

arg, and it's still a half hour from my house in a garage.

you know if you are having trouble getting the drive clutch off and you have the puller in and its getting very tight and not coming off, try tapping the pull with a hammer right into the motor and the shock will pop the clutch free

I can't wait either. I need to sell my XCR so I can get my shiny new Pro X 600 home!

First need to combine soybeans, corn and sunflowers though.

Me too. Tomorrow i'm going to work on my buddies old '79 ski-doo: new clutch, plastic skis, put motor back in ...etc. and then work on mine too. We're all so excited. Plus the temps are dropping into the 40's tonight, so winter is getting closer. Woohoo!

i would HIGHLY recomend AGAINST pulling the studs out it will weaken your track ALOT. if you dont want the studs buy a new track just dont pull the studs or youll be left stranded and still need a new track

I disagree with bob. Really if you pull the studs out it's a lot easier on the track, because there aren't weird stresses provided by the studs.

My sled is drilled for 144 studs but I only have 96 in. The empty holes don't make any difference. None of them are ripping or anything. The guy who wants to purchase my sled is a snowmobile mechanic and he hates studs, so he said he would just pull them all out. I asked if it made a difference and he told me what I said at the beginning of this post.

Taking the studs out shouldn't do any more damage than leaving them in,but you will notice a big difference in the handling, I'll never ride without them again. getting cold tonight in northern ontario, I can almost smell snow and burnt KLOTZ , 4 degrees tonight , celcius "EH" !
