Default are you ready for snow?

I think I am not. I dont even have trailing arms at all period let alone to just put them on. I dont have a top end to the motor, the one on the bench is going down the road hopefully!! same with the pipes.
the only thing ready is the chain case, thermostate housing and brake caliper, dont have a rotor or pads either.

I'm good to go, I just need SNOW!!!

I did a once over on my entire sled a few weeks ago when the winter itch started. I think it was because I recived my first sledding magazine in the mail.
What I really need is a new set of carbides so I'm waiting for the snowmobile Show in Novi Michigan next month to get them!

I am currently not even close to ready for snow. My motor is still sitting on the floor in a box awaiting a chassis. Give me a week though and I would be ready for ice!

I'm ready. Just need fresh gas and a skid wheel bearing. Oh, and some snow would help a little bit too.

It's snowing in the mountains now and I haven't even started the sled projects yet.
going to do some porting and polishing to my sled and to indygirls sled.
And I'm going to do a track extension on my sled from a 144 to a 159.
Looks like a busy October and November to get it all done.

I need to replace a leaking oil sender, clean the carbs, change the gas, rebuild the shocks, grease everything, check carbides, and retension the track. Other than that, Yeah I'm ready... my sled isn't!

I'm way behind lol. Last year I started a rebuild on my 400 and when adjusting carbs to break in the throttle cable broke lol, still gotta change it and break engine in.

My 650 has a bolt missing in the skid, a loose trailing arm bolt, skis are not straight lol. I haven't even started on it yet. Not to mention I wanted to install a boss seat this year and still haven't ordered it, I guess it'll have to happen next year unless ebay comes through. But it still runs awesome!

I have my first attempt at grass drags on Oct. 7th - so there's all that fun stuff to deal with. I may even try the old TXL-Indy 340 for shits and giggles.

Besides all that, I need to:

XCR -
Track/rail/tunnel extension
hood & belly off and build a mountain hood/belly
hopefully get a can for it
buy a new seat
get a set of domes
risers
all 4 shocks need a rebuild
Both chaincase bearings/seals

XLT -
Change handlebars to the ones I take off my XCR
all 4 shocks need a rebuild
put old track from XCR on this

TXL-Indy
Go through the clutches and figure out why the belt won't go up the top inch of the primary
fix the brake light switch
put old track from XLT on this

And of course - Sledneck sticker the shit out of them.

I get the sleds out of storage next week. No work or mods planned. I do need to have the APV's serviced though. New chaincase oil in both. And I may do some repairs on my old '77 Yamaha from high school so my daughter has something to ride.

I am so glad I started early. Like in frigg'n June. Got alot done so far.

The big gun needs the carb slides changed (paid for, just waiting for the damn things to show up), the fuel line hooked up, the rest of the exhaust springs installed, new studs and track adjustment. Hopefully the dreaded waterpump issue wont plauge me this year. So far its had the suspension upgraded on both ends, a new seat and tank, new driveshaft/jackshaft bearings and seals, changed out the chaincase, did the flowrite airbox mod, coated pipes, different track and a mbrp silencer. Whew.

The little red whore needs a big hole in the belly pan plugged up, a little exhaust rework, the skid greased and drive chain and track adjustment. So far its had the rear suspension reworked, Ripsaw, dropped in a big block and added some oddball silencer that sounds pretty cool.

And lastly, get rid of the Yamaha/trade it for studs.

Wait, your getting a can?? wow, I though you were one of those, cans close trails people...

You trying the xcr on the mountains or what?? mountain bellypan and hood etc..??


For me, Just need to finish harvest, and find a day when the sister and buddy are free to head down to caribou and pick up that sled, I have the cash, got no time...

And itll be coming home if compression, rear/front suspension etc,... is all in ok+ shape....Im pumped. It has a can, riser, v-frce reeds and I think its different clutching, if not I plan on coming into contact with TURK from TY to get some info on good clutching..So then Ill be allll ready.

The reason for the can/stingers is purely weight loss. In other discussions you'll notice I said I wanted as quiet of a can as possible. The stock can on that thing is a frickin boat anchor.
