What else should I know about my triumph engine? I know all of this:

-All about the jetting
-That the sled has double row bearings
-The carb slides update
-The belt I should be using

Anything that I missed or should know or keep a heads up on?

Thanks I just dont want to blow anything up [xx(] (knock on wood)

I am starting a little notebook on my sled.[:)] just so I can always refer back to the note book or even on here.

they had a few revisions of the XLT engine, the latest one from late 97 and up was the 04 version, basically updates to fix all the crank, head problems, much more durable engine.

I think you should take that engine out, and trade me for my real fast, super duper, pretty 500 engine. Its a good trade.lol. First, need to find what jets work good in it, second, take the water out of the gas, 3 set your floats, Im really hating the flat slide carbs, so expensive to repair,35.00 for needle and seat, 4 install DG can I just got, 3 months after paying a fellow SF member in ND.
