    I have a 2018 zr xc. Right off idle it bogs all the way to about 3500 rpms. And sometimes when I reach about 6000 rpms I hold the throttle wide open and I just stayed the same speed.

    Is it possible to put a 2010 arctic cat M8 mountain cat motor in a 2002 mountain cat 600 efi. I’m not asking is it worth it I’m asking what would need to be done

    I’m looking at getting a sled and I’m looking at the f8 this weekend. Do you guys know any common problems or issues they have? Is this a reliable sled? It has 5900km. Also, what should I look for when I inspect the sled? Thank you.

    Hey all, I'm having a real quirky problem with my Jag (actually a 81 4400 but it dropped a piston skirt and blew out the crank case, so replaced it with a 78 340cc motor). The motor has one Mikuni carb, that feeds two cylinders. But the cylinder on the left ("driver side") is running hot and...

    Hey y’all, Hoping I can get some help with this, as I’m a bit lost on where to go from here.. I have a 1994 Wildcat 700 EFI, it’s swapped into a ext 580 body but as far as I know everything but the body was converted to the WC components. (Bought it this way) Anyways, I’ve started it a bunch...

    I have a 2001 Arctic cat 600 Efi and i went for a ride with my buddy, the sled they were on broke down close to home so we fingered we’d get it on the way back. We got to your spot and the sled seemed fine but when we went leave an hour later the sled started up just fine but wouldn’t drive. We...

    Hello! I'm trying to repaint my hood but have no idea how to remove it. I see how the nuts and bolts remove but I don't understand how to disconnect the wires without cutting them off the speedometer. I looked all over the place and couldn't even find a model like mine that someone was removing...

    I wan't to long track my 2002 ZR 600 EFI and I came across this thread. I want to do something similar but the only rails I can find are for a 2004 Pantera 800 EFI Gold. Would I be able to swap these rails with the rails I have on my ZR?

    I need some help. Idk what's wrong or if I'm not connecting the battery right but today I started up my sled it had a battery light on so I took it off charged it and when I put it back on I'm getting zero power to everything. There is a plug that goes to what I think is the starter relay under...

    After 35 years of no sledding, I decided to acquire a nice classic, so I purchased a 1972 Arctic Cat Puma 340. It runs but not well. A Walbro carb was installed on it, and the original Tillotson HD62A came with it. I rebuilt the Tillotson, had it tested, and when installed it runs but is...
