Tipping my sled

Is it bad for a snowmobile to run on its ride for like 5 seconds cuz I noticed when I put my sled on its side carving and fall off after I flip it back it runs funny for a second....

Its not hurting it

since im guessing its carbed, anything you tip over will start to get flooded or loose gas because your float bowls are upside down. pretty normal with sleds/dirt-bikes etc.

Its fine just tip it upright and Clear out the flooding by getting on the throttle/pipe good for a sec.

It wont actually do any damage its fine. I do waaay worse to mine! they are made to take a serious beating if you keep them setup right.

That's why it's good to have a tether. Last year a guy was playing and his sled rolled on top of him. The throttle stuck and the track about tore his arm off. I went and got tethers for my RMK's the next day.

Very good point Dan, that was one of the first things my Dad suggested me to get for my snowmobile, and I am glad that he did.

Yeah, I tipped off my RMK and my right foot got caught in the foot well while the sled continued. It dragged me a ways straight toward the trees, but I guess the heavy ass anchor stopped it. I haven't put a tether on yet, but I will before I head back to the mountains.

Tipping my sled

Another thing on its on it's side does the crankcase oil get up on the piston or cylinder and cause any problems ? The reason for asking is I've been arguing with my dad. Every time I push carving to far and end up on my ass I hit the kill switch and don't rush and hope up and flip it. Hurts says something about the crankcase oil

What sled? Obviously not a problem with a 2 stroke... No crankcase oil! And at least with yamaha 4 strokes, it isn't a problem, they are dry sump oil system.
