Default New for 2014?

Things are still pretty slow around here....

Anyone getting a new sled? New tow pig? New accessories or modifications to your old sled?


For me, I think I'm going to leave my 600VES/HO RMK pretty much alone besides clean and polish. The IQr is getting a new engine, this time going back to all 600VES components. Also a new-used primary clutch (this may have been a factor in last years piss poor performance). Also plan to finally add the auxiliary cooler to the tunnel, maybe some paint or decals here and there but not sure yet. Hoping for better than 4MPG this year!

Starting to think seriously about selling both sleds right after the UP ride so that I can pick up a decent 2011+ Pro Assault in the spring or summer.

I don't have any mods planned really. My rails are broken so I need to address that, I'm seeking a coil over skid from a Pro-RMK to swap in. So I guess that's a mod. Other than that I'm still on a weight kick. My sled lost a lot of weight last year, this year is my turn lol.

At this rate I think I'd be more successful putting my sled on a diet....

I think my sled has dropped all the weight I feel comfortable with lol. Any more weight loss I'd have to step up to carbon fiber, or tin foil lol. Can't afford carbon fiber and while tin foil may be light weight, I don't think it'll stand up to my fat ass bouncing on it lol.

Scammed a sweet IQrr last spring to add to the herd. HTG VES600 going in the 2003 pro-x in the next couple of nights, and then a Ultra engine in my edge x. I don't need any more shit to do.

Hastings is next weekend Mud.....if the rain holds off it might be a good time.

I'm toying with the idea of a new sled for this year but am still not sure. I do have one lined up if I jump so I just gotta decide.

Hey, you gotta make sure they know their place. If they start falling apart they're gone!




That's why those guys go through so many kitty kats!

They don't fall apart, I just tinker with them until they stop working.



03RMK is mostly stock
07IQr will be mostly stock with a stock 600 in it this year
