    I just bought a Yamaha Vmaxx 600 XT. The guy I bought it from said I should mix the oil 50:1. I eyeballed the mixture into the tank. I drove it around for a while and then I realized the “oil level” light was on. I popped the hood and found there is an oil tank which is empty. Do I fill this...

    I blew a ski by hitting a rock going 120 in a field. I no longer have a left front ski and the right has some pretty gaping holes in it. I've been searching the web a bit lately but can't seem to find any skis/carbides/runners for that sled or any that say that they will fit that sled. I don't...
  4. Engine / Drivetrain
    I got a vmax 600 last spring, hadn't been used in 3 years, sat outside on a trailer, but he started it every year. We did a very light lookover, new plugs, cleaned airbox, seafoam, new crankcase oil. Ran it this year on the 2x no issues. Ended up cleaning the carbs because a screw came loose and...

    Hey guys I just bought a 2010 pro R with a blown motor for a really good deal. I was wondering what would be the best/cheepest way to get it going. It looks like it broke off a ring and that destroyed it. The cylinder, piston, and head are gone. I will be pulling the engine this weekend to see...

    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.
  9. Polaris Snowmobiles
    Hey they all, I was given a box of junk and it contained 2 carbs and oil pumps from what I believe to be a 90s era Polaris. I am trying to get rid of them and maybe make someone's day on their rebuild but I genuinely have no idea what these carbs belonged to. None of the items are marked with...
