Back Into Snowmobileing!!!

7 posts in this topic

So after a long 7 year absence from the sled world I am back in it again!!!! Man I can truly not wait to get back on the trails, lakes and ditches!!!! I picked up a 1994 Indy 500. Yeah i know kind of old and yes I was never a big fan of the stlye, but I will take it none the less and ride the ---- out of it!!! This being my first sled in awhile, any advice as to what I should do to get it up to shape for winter? It runs, starts on the first pull,track is great, seat awesome, ect, ect. The guy I got it from hardly rode it and took very good care of it.

Check carbides, hyfax and radiator and fuel hoses. Maybe ready to crack at the wrong time. Congrats!!!!

Carbides and Hyfax are new. I looked at the heat exchangers and tunnel it all looked good. I did skip over the hoses, great Idea!!! Thanks

last year my buddy unknowingly broke that oil grommet putting his engine back in his sled after doing some work to it and fried his engine after firing it up. frown
