Hey guys I'm a new member from Michigan. I ride a 1999 Arctic Cat Zr 500. I would like to upload my pictures of my sled on here to show you guys the sled but I'm new and trying to figure things out on here. All the help would be nice.

on this topic, make a new post,on the right side of your format toolbar, there will be 2 paperclips, one with an arrow, one without. click on the one with no arrow, itwill ask you the file type, click on the picture format. pick a image group to put it in, such as "general", it will bring up a loading menu, click Brows for file, find your pic and upload it will appear in the post. good luck[thumb], Welcome to the site

Hand guards, new hot grips, two-tone pearl hood, stripped off the tunnel and polished, the d and d can stripped and polished, heavy duty rear suspension springs, new seat cover, rebuilt clutch. Soon to have the pipe and y painted in heated gloss black paint. Only have a few more things to get like a new cover, carbides on hand, windshield bag, billet stop brake handle, billet pull handle, new thumb warmer, hook up the tether, and give it a wax job now. Had the hood painted almost 5 weeks ago, so its time to get detailed now.

A lot of work but not much money and that's the best part.

yup i went to the depot and got paint stripper, and gloves. I got the spray stripper. It took about 30 minutes to fully strip that tunnel.

Here's pictures of the stripped tunnel, belt cover, the aftermarket can and a few other little things.

Welcome to the site!!! Everyone on this site is just great answering anything, and even help finding parts.

How do you like your 500? Looking at buying myself a 500.

Love your recliner in the background, my garage needs one of those!

I love my 500, its just something to hit the trails with. Its fast but not extremely fast. And for the recliner...its the bosses furniture down at the shop.My sled stays down there so its out of my place. I'm currently looking for a 600-700 ZR so then I can give the 500 to my gf to ride.

Thanks guys. I was through snowmobileforum.com and really started to dislike the info on there. I was on here until 5 am last night looking around and got ALOT of information from other forums on here and a lot of helpful tips on things. The best part I got information on was that darn bogging issue on the Arctic Cats. I'm going to do the bypass and get that squared away so thats one issue taking care of.
