2012 AC Quality...

This is a copy from this mags first ride report, I just copy and pasted it, don't shoot the messenger:

After about 75 miles, we made a few adjustments to the F 800 Sno Pro's Fox FLOAT ski shocks and reduced preload from 70 psi to 60 psi. Lower air pressure made the front suspension feel more compliant through corners and helped reduced ski push. After 150 miles, the chassis felt less rigid and the rear suspension started to absorb some of the chatter and G bumps more effectively. We also adjusted the handlebar riser to a more-vertical position, making the ergonomics more comfortable by letting us move forward on the seat for better handling.

Our sled needs to go back to the dealer for a few repairs before we can ride it again. About 30 miles from the end of our ride on Saturday, the drivetrain started to behave weirdly and acted like it was binding. Sure enough, the rollers that were supposed to be in the secondary clutch were gone. We later realized the filament inside each headlight bulb was broken. And yesterday at our shop we discovered the sled has an oil leak.

So after a few fix-ups, our black-and-orange Cat will be ready to roll again, and we're excited to run it through all sorts of trails and conditions to get to know it better. Indications are that with the F 800 Sno Pro that Cat built a great sled for sporty, playful trail rides.


So after less than 200 miles, the clutch failed, headlights don't work, and an oil leak, the sleds a winner!!! And you guys bash Yamaha???
