Snowmobile Animal Accidents Warning

Snowmobile Animal Accident Warnings

Snowmobile season is almost upon us again and I wanted to remind you that small, and some not so small, furry critters like to use the trails a snowmobile leaves behind. Animals are hit on the snowmobile trails every year but there are ways of minimizing the chance you will be the unlucky rider this year. Learn more

Polaris Snowmobile VIN Number

Polaris VIN Number Info

Before you can begin decoding your snowmobile VIN you need to find it and with Polaris snowmobiles that's not too difficult. The image above is a general representation of what you are looking for on your sled. Find the VIN location on other sleds too.

My good friend Dave recently had his Polaris 800 snowmobile engine give out and with a little searching we found a non PERC 800 motor to replace it with, HERE is what you need to know.

Sled Racing

It's almost that exciting time of year again when we get to take the sled out of storage, give it a good tuneup and take it out on the mountain trails or snow packed fields, or maybe even on the soon to be frozen lake. Here's a tip, replace the belts now.

2005 Arctic Cat Z370LX Snowmobile with less than 400 miles on it, a beautiful thing. It's owner gave it regular maintenance and an Arctic Cat dealer installed the track studs, the sled is in prime condition with no rips or scratches. (more…)

2008 Yamaha Phazer Race Sled

Take a look at this 2008 Yamaha Phazer snowmobile that has been converted into a serious GT race sled. It has a 4 stroke 499CC race engine and has been converted for use in Snocross racing. 15 inches of travel are accomplished with GYTR clicker shocks and its ticket to wins isn't it's top speed, it’s all in the quickness, however a top speed of 81 miles an hour doesn’t hurt. Other goodies include a home made tunnel crosser and Yamaha hand guards.


Arctic Cat 1972 Panther

Now here is a special treat, this is a 1972 Arctic Cat Panther snowmobile with a pair of kittie sleds, all in great shape given their age. Not very many Panthers were produced by kawasaki, as few as 50 each with yellow and red plastics, and their design has stood the test of time quite well making it a very nice vintage sled. The 1972 “Boss Cat” is becoming notorious for having an engine that just dies out after running fine for 10-15 minutes but the problem is generally due to a bad stator causing incorrect timing and/or Walbro carburetors. Another possible fix is to add a primer to the fuel line since it's a long way from tank to 340 or 440 engine. Fixing old snowmobiles yourself is a lot of fun and great experience, there is no better feeling that getting an old sled fixed, repaired and purring like a kitten.


2011 Yamaha Apex EFI

Yamaha Snowmobiles are built with performance in mind and this 2011 Yamaha Apex EFI Fuel Injected sled is no exception. It has power steering, an electric start and reverse gear for easy handling. This model also came with a high performance 4-cylinder Genesis 4-Stroke engine however this particular model has received valve timing, intake and exhaust tuning to perform in midrange conditions, such as on mountain trails. The result is exceptional throttle response and improved fuel efficiency. Of course no Yamaha Apex sled is complete without a Camoplast ripsaw track to accelerate through the snow with style, snowmobile style.


2005 Ski Doo Mach Z

This 2005 Ski Doo Mach Z RT Adrenaline is powered by a 1000cc 2 stroke engine that produces 180Hp. It has an electric-manual starter with electric reverse to make handling easy on hard packed snow, ice or on the mountain trails. The hand guards are intact so your knuckles won't take a bruising and it has a 2 seat design so that you can bring a friend on your next trip. With the economy still recovering it’s important to save money but if you live for the trails why not spend half the money on a 2005 Ski Doo snowmobile, anything to keep you in the snow where you belong, right?

Cleaning Snowmobile Skis

A great article about cleaning snowmobile skis was just posted over on hardcoresledder that I’d like to pass along, it included an excellent snowmobile ski cleaning how to video.


Polaris 600 IQ Shift

Polaris stopped production of last years twin carb 600cc in favor of a new, fuel-injected, Cleanfire 600 carburetor. Both 600 IQ models still feature the same engine but the slightly more expensive IQ Shift sports 5-6 additional horsepower and has a smooth, more responsive throttle. The Polaris Cleanfire Injected two-stroke engine is also more economical, saving you gas money, in order to meet US environmental laws.

Polaris 800 IQ - 2009
