I got home for thanksgiving break, and the 13 inches we had melted. But the weather was nice and cold so I figured pefect time to get some things gone. I finished putting my R.A.V.E valves back in after looking down them into my cylinders to check my skirts. Cleaned them up and installed new gaskets. Took and put some new slides on the rear skid. Still waiting for snow to do the rear track adjustment and tension. Ran down to the shop and did a compression test. 120 120 for each cylinder, not bad for 4,780 hard miles. Looks like all do a fresh top end next summer! Ran the motor a good 30 minutes to burn out all the fogging oil I used, 1st time I fogged a motor. Ive always been a fan of starting them everyone month.

Now the last thing before the snow hits, is to fix my stabalizer. Last winter I hit a small rock and it messed up some of the aluminum components. I got them all tig welded and just have to re-drill some holes. Then decide wheather or not to just ride with out the stabalizer or put it all back together. Nothing like some last minute adjustments

Need to put a fuel pump in my sled. And I'm praying the bottom end at 10,000 miles didn't finally crack. I need to get my 4-wheeler fixed. Need to finish building our 2-story garage. I need to get my tekvest chest protector and stickers for my sled. I may need to get a new sled :( ... I have to weld my tunnel. And yea, I got about a week!

the suspension for the '86 Trail is at the dealer to have some seized things removed. after that, it gets a fresh set of Fox Shox, newer springs, and put back together.
I'm actually looking foreward to giving this one the "shakedown ride" this year.

I am trying to sell the sled I have now, and hoping to buy a 03 rev. This warm weather doesn't help the selling end of things. We need some snow so people get the itch and start looking for newer sled

I did a few things this fall. I installed a temp gauge, changed my gear ratio to suit my riding style, removed the factory decals and ordered a kit to install, just need some help. I realized putting decals on the hood is harder than I thouhgt. Other than that I'm ready for the snow.

Im ready to go right now if it comes. But I need new carbides and looking into a 136" kit. I trail ride but will be doing a lot of off trailing so it'll be worth it. Otherwise, let it snow, let it snow, let-it-snow!

Well i gotta finish up the polishing on the tunnel, bolt the seat back down, and then take off the carbs and clean them and rejet them a little bit leaner (i know be careful with the jetting), and thats about it.

I still have to swap over my new/used hood, nose cone, seat, and skis onto my sled. I also have to remove the old track and put on the new one. Then buy a windshield and some new carbides. I should be set then.

I have to buy an ignitioin switch at some point, right now it's just by passed so it's not a "need to do" thing. If I could find the hood straps I bought I need to install those, so I don't have to use bungee cords on the front of the hood anymore. Also not a "need to do" thing.

Christmas break will be my time to work on the sled, only time I will be home to really work on it.

I would like to get my skid-plate on before it snows. But, when it snows, I'll go out and ride anyways.

Finish porting the track, install temp gauge, front-end bushing kit, add pre-filter sock over air box, drill side pannels and put in pre-filter under for better air flow, install another vent on the opposite side of the temp guage, put on risers, handguards, hood, windshield, re-jet and clutch to flat-lander standards, and fill up the gas tank.

If I have enough time I will revalve the shocks.
