Sled Weights (wet)

The people I have talked to said it handles great, is fast, but they are afraid to buy one because of how complex the motor is, and the cost of replacing engine/turbo components. One guy bought a yamaha instead, the other bought a leftover 600 fusion. Also pretty expensive compared to polaris two st...

Dragons Rule!

All I got from this post is that the fcat is tippy. Who has their sled upside down that often? And you are comparing a blown out exaust pipe to a fouled plug? I assume that means you keep a spare pipe in your pocket for such occasions?

Sled Weights (wet)

I Bet they picked yamaha's without reverse, and skidoos with electric start, to "even things up". If skidoo weighed a non-electric start sled with reverse vs a yamaha with reverse, you would see an extra 50 lbs on the yamaha. You can twist any specs if you want to, and Yamaha has done a lot of twist...

give me twenty good reasons

And yes, you can feel the weight. I needed a block and tackle to lift the back end enough to check the track tension. I have no idea what I will do if he ever get's it stuck. The ride is pretty good though. Much better than the fusion. Could be the long track advantage though.

Amen to rear exhaust being nasty if trying to lift the back end. My dad's venture builds up a big block of ice back their on the grab-bar.

Lets compare

Skidoo is claiming better fuel mileage than the yamaha. We'll see how that pans out in the "Real world" but even if they are close, that skidoo is going to have the other manufacturer's sweating.

The #1 thing keeping me from riding a Yamaha

Leftover 2006 Fusion 600 - $7300 Canadian Leftover 2006 Vector 120hp - $12000 Canadian. Man, you can burn a lot of gas and oil for $4700, even at canadian gas prices. The Fusion is no longer available, my uncle bought it last week, but the vector is still sitting in the showroom. any takers?

Pontiac G8 released at Chicago auto show

Ford has nice stuff? Have you looked at the fusion and five hundred? Those things are hideous, identical to each other, and cheap looking. A pontiac should look like a pontiac. The g6 is kind of ugly, but the g8 looks awesome. I prefer that to the 300 any day.

Pontiac G8 released at Chicago auto show

to really do the retro thing, you would need skinny tires, huge wheelwells, and set the wheels 6" in from the outside of the car, and use only square and rectangular headlights, cause they weren't smart enough to make other shapes back then. No thanks. The rustang, comaro and challenger are plenty r...

Pontiac G8 released at Chicago auto show

The g8 is twice as big as a jetta. Did you read the specs? It's a big car. 75 inches wide, 114.8 inch wheelbase. I hope this thing comes to canada. I could use a good daily driver. The gto never got here.
