Default Braaap!

Figured I'd get some sled talk rolling. In honor of the snow adorning our mountain tops and creeping it's way down. Any mods in order before its time to grab a handful?

My 1000 is for sale, I'm hoping to be on a newer cat by the time the snow flies. What is up with Rasmussen running to doo and Burandt to poo? I love Cat but I'm starting to think they need to re-think how they take care of their riders?

I am actually trying to decide if I want to buy a 2013 pro rmk or a used sled this year and wait till next to buy a 2014. Professional riders will ride any company that pays them the most. Just like any other sport.

Need to rebuild the primary on my free 98 rmk. Anyone clocked the chain case on one of these to fit a 2" track?

What did that run you? Did you get the updated dual ring pistons? The 03 stock motor came with single ring pistons that were prone to burn downs for obvious reasons. There is a reason that pistons come with two rings . If it didn't come with dual ring pistons, I highly recommend installing some. SPI's Molly coated pistons are an excellent trade out. Their pretty cheap as far as pistons go. I ran them in my 1000 triple mod mountain cat and was very impressed.

It was from an '07 sled before a shop went through it with all new insides. 1,900 that could'f been a bigger Super Charger for my S-10 or 3 Rock's for my big Cammo truck or bunches of little things that I need more than want

I'm gonna tear the sled completely apart next weekend and do pretty much a 100% inspect & overhaul.

Maybe put that old crank seized 800ho on the back burner for a future little fun project

Phil, those carbs are so simple I usually rebuild them w/o kits. And I wouldn't pay $200 for a pair of those carbs. What are they, mikuni 38mm round slides?

I don't even know that Ken They are what ever came stock on those machines.

But ya, I'm assuming pull them apart clean everything and put it back together. I played with the ones you gave me. They look way to simple I was going to put yours on it, but did a bit a research and found people where having issues getting them jetted right on the 500s.

Looking for a yellow belly pan, full cowling (need the whole thing with guages and everything) and a good seat for a 1997 Skidoo MXZ 670. Anyone have these parts or know where I can get them in the Anchorage area or have a parts sled laying around, please let me know?

This will be my first season owning a sled(s)....

I need to swap out some old steel skis for some newer plastic skis and the z440 should be ready to ride. Still working a deal on a second machine.

Skis have come a long way in 20 years. Plastic skis will flex, they are forgiving, and they don't rust off your sled. Deeper keel designs grip the trail and improve control.

Just few of the many advantages

Probably the best $60 mod I will do to the sled. The old skis are pretty bent up and I heard that the stock plastic Cat skis were pretty good.

Plastic skiis are like adding another 2-3" of suspension up front. Get some wider ones and they float better in the snow, some dual keel ones (forgot the term but they look like a catamaran) and you can turn way better. Stock skiis off a 2004ish or newer mxz or summit would be a great upgrade for you Phil. I think the last skiis I had were'powderhound' or something like that. I liked them but the guy I sold my sled to said they eventually broke. I had some on my 2000, I think they were called simmons? I like them alot also.

I started an online swap meat.

Sounds like some folks in here could use some of those parts.
