Here's some stuff we learned about the new Arctic Cat "F"'s.

F6
MPH: 85-105
RPM: 8000
Fuel: (no premium) 87 Octane only

F8
MPH: 90-110
RPM: 7900
Fuel: (no premium) 87 Octane only

F10
MPH: 95-115
RPM: 7350
Fuel: (no premium) 87 Octane only


 Frame front arm straps (up inch up)
 Dully runner to single (1 to 2 mph w/arm strap up ")
 Rear coupler blocks in lowest position (improves traction)
 Low windshield 2-3 mph faster than mid and 5-6 mph faster than tall
 Additional Idler wheels in frame 2-5 mph (based on snow conditions) saves on hifax
 96 studs (minimum) is recommended to stop track spinning at low, mid and top speeds in marginal traction conditions (huge difference in acceleration)
 2 gram heavier drive clutch weights may improve speed in a straight hard flat drag condition, but will generally pull down bad in deeper snow

[COLOR=#ff0000]Update Bulletin [/COLOR]

ECU update eliminates 5500 rpm lean spot also improves backfiring & exhaust flame up.

Misc. related Specs
[COLOR=#ff6600]
 Ck belt alignment and deflection adjust to spec
 Ck track tension and adjust to spec.
 Confirm 12 oz lube in gear case.
 Confirm exhaust valve cable length [/COLOR]


Do you cat guys have to do all this shizz just to ride your sleds???
Gear lube??? WTF...not topped off at the factory by those TRF resin heads????
Confirm exhaust valve cable length???
Is this what you cat guys call basic maintenance???

ECU problems....5,500 lean spot??? (isn't that where the trouble was with the 03 firecat), and there is still problems???

LOL at MM, what a lame attempt at a trash. Most sledders know how to maintain there sleds, its pretty sad your dealer has to top off your oil and change your spark plugs.

F10
MPH: 95-115
RPM: 7350
Fuel: (no premium) 87 Octane only

your puttin' this up as a trash, MM? Is there a Yamaha that can run 115 at 7350 on 87 octane? Thats impressive.
A picture is worth a thousand words.
