'95 pantera 580 efi needs help....
Hello I'm a new member and I need help with my '95 Arctic Cat Pantera 580 efi
I bought it last year and due to NO snow in eastern Ontario I only rode my sled once when I trailered it Barry's Bay in Northern Ontario, Canada The sled worked great and ran amazing so I put it in my barn and all was good away for the season.
But...in August I was bored so I drove it out of the barn on to the lawn and washed her up making look great and put it back into storage.
Now....The snow has arrived with a vengence and the problems have begun. First the sleds battery litterally froze so I replaced it and then I had a burnt fuse so replaced that, so I get it running and it won't move at all. The brake rotor completely rusted so it wouldn't turn after lots of forcing I got the brake rotor to turn and then the sled would move aswell. So I have a running moving sled but there's still a noise coming from the engine area like something's binding up. I think the brake is still stuck on and I don't know what to try. I could just remove the pads completely but then I wouldn't have a brake. I can barely squeeze the brake lever at all.
Oh and I can't seem to move the gear lever from forward to reverse like it's stuck or something.
I don't know if these are things that I can fix or should I locate a dealership and have them give the sled a once over.
Sorry for the wordiness, I'll keep the threads shorter from now on.
