Swapped out plugs, started first pull.
Going to take it out to the lake this weekend and ride some trails probably only 25-30 miles but it a start.
If they open up any mountain riding within 125 miles I'll do that instead.
Looking for the steep & deep.
(sigh) Good thing we don't have snow here yet. Still working on sleds and trailer.
The 4 place trailer is coming along. 8' X 18'. Just finished the 2' extension and widening. Stripped and painted it. Replace the rims with aluminum mags. 3/4 way through wiring it with tandem elec. brakes. Still have to deck it and then put the ski rails, traction and tie downs on before it will be ready. Another 2 weeks on that I figure.
Still have to put one of the XLTs back together. Replaced rear susp. shocks and both water hoses as well as the steering heim joints. Clutches are next. Then do the same for the other XLT.
Also putting paddles on the old Moto-Ski. Lots of power for a 500 but no traction. It's like a belt sander!!
Used to be a liquid cooled motor so to get more clearance have to remove the heat exhangers from under the tunnel to make room for the paddles.
Then, if the 99 Mountain max comes through....
Doh, now I'm just depressed!!
Well at least there is lots to do to keep my mind off the no snow situation.
Does it look like your going to get the 700MM. I can't believe the price you were talking about. Depending on the type of riding you do this should be a great sled.
(Wheres everyone else, been kinda slow round here lately?)
Just got word today that the repo company has to wait 3 weeks before they can release it. I went and took a look at it over the weekend. It's been abused for sure.
Broken tie rod
Dented trailing arm
Hood hinges broken
Tail light cracked
But the motor started first pull and didn't sound like it was in bad shape.
All electrics were working except starter.
Suspension in the rear looks fine but doesn't have the kit that moves it back or extends it.
Anyway, I put a bid in for $551 cdn. LOL see if they bite. I should know around the end of the month if I'll win it. I figure as is, it might we worth about 2000 cdn or so. I know someone in the company so they should be able to get me bid info as it goes on. Would be a nice treat to get if for real cheap!!
I start my sleds every month in the off season. Let them run a few minutes in the trailer and get my dose of 2-stroke.
A did you know: By Polaris-Man
"Did you know that, starting your sleds and letting them run in summer does more harm than good? When you start the machine, it gets warm, then when it cools down it creates condensation, which leads to rusted metal parts."
I don't think it would be a problem. You need moisture to create condensation. Turning hot then cold by itself wouldn't cause this. How many times have you had to replace a hair dryer because it rusted out?
As long as you run it long enough to dry out any moisture formed from the weather I believe it's OK.
Disagree if you wish but I know alot of sledders that have been doing this for years.
That's my opinion.
I have been wrong before, only once though.
