We could be riding the nsst

Recommended Posts

Looks like its about time to put the sleds to bed. Might be a couple places you could put on a couple miles but is got to be getting thin and any traffic this weekend will probably take care of it. And if we happen to get any wet sloppy snow they probably wont be able to groom it anyway. At least I set a new record this year and got about 700+ miles on. Only took me 3 years to break in the new sled.

I'm thinking about the same. Once I saw the guy on his Harley heading up 35W at 6:30am in 36 degree weather when I was going Ice fishing. I knew it was getting close. Glad I got the grandkids out in the sleigh last weekend for a few hours in before the end. :)

I watched a few boats launch from Two Harbors this morning ,,, Had to break thru skim ice to the end of the breakwall but they are out on open water fishing ,,, With all the sunshine we have gotten up here the NSST and the Taconite are rather dirty on the open south facing slopes,,,, My riding season is over with just about 1,000 miles on the sled for the season ,,,, Now to concentrate on those dang salmon out on superior

I think about the only place a person could get some decent riding in after this next weekend would be LOW. They had quite a bit of snow up there and with cool nights they will probably be able to groom for a while yet.

Done with trail riding but plenty of snow on the lakes up here so I'm leaving one sled ready for late ice crappies.  Pulled the reeds on the Renegade to inspect and clean, then ended up ordering up a set of Boyesen rage cages.

Do you have to re-jet for those as well?

Fuel injected so no.  If it were carbed they'd come off and be cleaned too.  The throttle bodies were cleaned though.  The exhaust valves were cleaned earlier.  Got to like Amazon for prices and vendors that ship right away.   Reeds are in then noticed when filling with antifreeze my coolant cap didn't fit. The neck warped from heat off the muffler.   I'll have to true that up and probably put in a heat deflector.  Then stabil in the tank and into the enclosed trailer for season.

Thought I'd share the fix on the coolant tank for the Rev.

15/16 socket is the correct size for the inside dia of the coolant tank neck. 

Warm the tank neck with heat gun and the heat the socket hot enough to not melt the plastic tank neck, insert the socket into the tank neck.

Use a band clamp close the the size of the opening of the filler neck and tighten and let cool.

This reformed the coolant tank neck and the coolant cap fit perfectly.

Sounds good. Now whats the fix to keep it from happening again? some kind of heat shield?

Was up on the north shore last few days. Silver bay area has-pretty much no snow and trails are like they look in summer. Got not even a dusting up there when the rest of the state got a foot plus. Drive 4 hours south and theres 14 inches on the ground had to go for a rip around the yard.

    • I have not purchases Forscan as I have access to an  OEM scan tool. There are somethings that the Forscan software can do that IDS cannot with Asbuilt. I have ways arround that. Just to clarify, you may not have to purchase the software to do what you want but use their free version. This is worth exploring. As for the OBD interface, might want to ask that question is a specific f150 forum and get an idea of what others are using.    High speed and medium speed compatibility would be nice for future toying. For your truck, you only need high speed interface. I can't remember what pins. Your truck has a gateway module DLC.  Basically it's a router that allows the different networks to communicate, but also your scan tool to communicate with all the networks over HS CAN 1 and 2.   The only software related mod I have done to my car is change the 3 turn signal blinks to 4.   Happy modding!
    • Ok that makes sense. When I saw swan I figured it was an member id. When I went to cub today I asked the HS kid if they had any  I got "I know we have them I just don't know where they'd be". I said freezers maybe by the other tots he said "what makes you think that" You can't make it up!
    • I think Schwan's is what was meant.   https://www.schwans.com/products/product?id=60297   The operator person will bring them right to your abode.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
    • The grain belt is a bigger sin.😁
