crankcase stuffing

thicker base gaskets generally are used on case reed engines. If you do it on a piston port design engine, you raise up your intake port. Therefore, you have to cut the skirt off the piston to get close back to where you were before you started, but not all the way, or you're only raising the exhaus...

riding position for jumping

Keep your feet up in the footrests, to stand up, keep your feet there and rise yourself up by pulling on the bars. DON'T move your feet back out of the rests, this will preload your suspension more than is needed and will "buck you" It takes alot of strength and control to keep your feet as far forw...

Arctic Cat Handlebars

you can't just buy the riser and bars off of a 02 and adapt them, the steering shaft is differnt to allow for tilting. I'd recomend buying an aftermarket riser and the OEM Cat bars for 02....The things fit just like they're supposed to. Don't go over 3" on the riser or you'll unplug your warmers and...

SRX VS. ZR 800 Cross Country

like previously mentioned, the SRX is a lake racer and the ZR a mogul masher....BUT, with the suspension tuned in the ZR has the umph to hang with the 700 triple Mach 1s...which is enough to edge off them Blue Piles of Crap. Come play on the trail, then we'll see who's left in the dust........HEEEEE...

Past and Present 96 XCR Owners

I had one with crank problems...it kept coming out of phase and kept puting brand new ones in right from the dealer. It finally blew with about 4500 on it. Had another I bought used with unknown mileage with SLP triple pipes and it only lasted me 12 miles....The bottom end bog on these two sleds I h...

75 Yamaha GPX 433 Meltdown

a bad crankcase seal is a very good possibility on the older sleds....but if it has the stock carbs, I'd lean towards those as the problem, they need to be adjusted acroding to each cylinder, not necessarily the same...1/4 turn could be the difference between good and lean. If it has been changed to...

Listen to this!

It can be the clutch I suppose...the clutch sticking open is more common the the SkiDoo TRA clutch, I would seriously tear that top end down though...How do your plugs look??? Are they possibly a funny grey color?

It's unlikely that that is the case...unless your clutch bushing fell out, but that would be obvious and wouldn't fix itself. You did stick it and need to get it fixed...take it back and ask the dealer to warranty it or at least look at it. You can stick it and sometimes an engine would pull over an...

Listen to this!

I never said it wasn't a seize....In fact that's what I was kinda getting at! It was due to the rapid expansion of the piston due to a lean mixture at idle. Just giving him something to look into, because it IS a possiblility. An oversight at the dealership in their inspection of a used sled maybe? ...
