Manifolds are meant to be removed, it's pretty common when you toast a piston or cylinder to have to pull the manifold to do the repair. But they are a royal pain, and that is the truth!

Snowcheck is when you pre-buy a sled before the model year. You usually get the most, up-to-date engine platform, shocks, maybe special colors. Sometimes snow-checked sleds offer a more powerful...

You may be able to get to them with a crows foot wrench. You're lucky, they are nuts. Some of the later ones are impossible to get to like that and are a hex bolt instead of a nut. You have to use a...

The RMK is also EFI (Electronic Fuel Injection.) Polaris pretty much quit using carbs about 2006 in the RMK. These EFI systems have as many sensors as a car does, and the electronics are all handled...

There is no mention of a torque value or tightening pattern in my Clymer's manual. I would tighten them "snug" and maybe use a bit of blue loctite. If you get oil seepage around the gaskets, that may...

I'm wondering if the crank has twisted out of phase... If you're getting good spark at the plugs and the compression is good, it should at least pop when using starting fluid. The snapping back when...

What tool are you using to try to get the flywheel off? It's been my experience that a dedicated flywheel puller is pretty necessary in removing the flywheel. Some folks have had success using other...

If there are snowmobile clubs in your area, consider joining. You may get a lead on some good local deals and find some folks that you can ride with come winter!

That's a lot of miles on a snowmobile. Has the engine been worked on? How about the bearings in the drive train? I would expect to be putting quite a bit of money into the engine and drivetrain to...

It's not just an RXL problem or even a Polaris problem. I had two ZR580's that also blew piston skirts. It's a 2-stroke problem, some engines are more prone to it than others. Best remedy is to...
