50 miles on the first ride for the new 800, the new 600 is over 500 miles already even though I bought in January. I absolutely love the new 800. I am convinced it could flip over pretty easy with...

Yeah when I got it it already had 500,000,000 miles on it, so I never thought it would last this long. Over the years I have heard those Polaris 700s are legendary for reliability - I have to agree.

I ended up getting a new 2015 pull start, black, 800 146" plus 3 year warranty, ice scratchers, a cover, and a spare belt. I have two E-start kits "on reserve" for a discount if I want to get them...

Yeah so I am picking up a new 2015 Summit SP 800 146" today. The deals are so good right now on 2015 models. My girlfriend is completely addicted to snowmobiling now and the 600 has become hers. My...

Yeah I guess it could be the clutch since I have been on the same primary spring the entire time. I have switched the secondary between this one and my other 700 so I'm pretty confident that's not...

You said it, I am definitely taking full advantage of the current situation. I was looking at the AXYS RMK (really I want the SKS) but I got such a killer deal on this Summit and I have wanted to try...

Yes, my friend the sled mechanic and I have been riding for a very long time on these old Polaris 151" RMKs. We had the same initial reaction to the new sled: "I can't believe how good the traction...

The PTO coil was sitting on some kind of metal clip that worked its way right through the soft bottom of the coil until it shorted. So they replaced the coil and reassembled it to avoid that. Got the...

A few hours after drop off I was told it was a shorted coil and should be an easy fix. We'll see! The new coil is supposed to be in Friday morning.

Brand new Summit 600 ETEC died first weekend

Time for a sad story! After ten years of riding, repairing, and modifying old obsolete snowmobiles (which I loved and took me on amazing adventures), last week I went in to the local Ski-Doo dealer...

Wildcat 700 Bogging at WOT

This is a 92 Wildcat 700 engine that I installed in my old 92 Polaris 500 SKS with rolled chaincase and 136" paddle track. Great sled, It worked perfectly for 3.5 years, but during the end of the...

No high performance engine can survive running too lean and/or detonating. So anyone who tells you that a certain sled is bulletproof is giving you misinformation. Some people might suggest a...

I wanted to add that if you have a second person, don't put the bar through the clutch. Have the stronger person put on some stiff gloves and hold the primary with both hands while the other one...

Well the most likely solution is replace the tach. If the sled is running perfectly then this is the most likely solution by far. It's not a big job and you can probably find one on ebay for a...

It's going to take a lot of testing and tuning. I've had good success with the almond spring, but whatever works. The old square one was the bad one, I think the newer round version is fine. I would...

I really wouldn't take out the oil injection system. Running low on oil will actually make you run *richer* because there is more gas and less oil in the mixture. More gas in the ratio means richer...

I would never take out a working oil injection system. The oil pumps rarely fail, but the oil pump cable is notoriously fragile. Regularly check your throttle cables for wear - the oil cable can go...

The answer to the last part of your question is, yes a good shock should provide *some* pressure and naturally move out to the extended position. That will contribute to keeping the suspension up.

That's nice, I am always jealous of the wide open areas. We don't have many, and they are mostly far from the trailheads. You can never complain about powder sparkling in the sunshine.
