depends on what it is so i cant vote. i do some of my own work and might have to take it in. i havent tooken my sled in yet but have only owned it for one season so far which is this season. i have replaced my carbides,chain,gears,cleaned my carbs, cleaned my airbox and taken it off, took off my undercarriage and put it back on, adjusted the track, took off my seat, and thats pretty much it. i am wanting to rebuild my engine but am sitlling wait for replys to see if i should or should not
I usually do most of my own work, but since I'm at college right now and don't have a whole lot of options for fixing the sled anything major that happens I think I will bring it to a dealer, that or bring it home and wait till summer to wrench on it
I have done some of each... but like Snowmobileadict says, armed with a manual (or posts and how-to's), and this forum to ask questions, there is a lot you can do/figure out even if you aren't that mechanically inclined... just have to get over your fear and do it. Most of the things I have brought in were because I needed it done in a hurry for a trip or something I just didn't feel comfortable doing myself... When possible do the wrenching yourself I say... saves a lot of money and gives you a great sense of accomplishment I think.
Thats the nice thing about 2 strokes.....only a couple of moving parts....and the rest of the sled chassis is simple. I do everything myself. This is going to change when we're all riding 4 stroke, 5 valve per cyl, variable cam timing, supercharged/turbocharged EFI sleds.
