    I have this '97 skidoo mxz 440 fan cooled sled, it had a broken pull starter we rebuilt it and that was done. It runs like crap at first. After a little bit we mess with the wires we get it to fire on both cylinders. Boom the thing was fantastic! So fast and peppy it just wanted to go. Ran good...

    Alright this is a weird one. So yesterday put around 50 miles on the sled and parked it until now. When I went to start it, pushed the electric start button and nothing happens. No clicks, nothing. So I tested the battery and it’s fully charged. I took a screwdriver and went through the solenoid...

    Hey I’ve got a 97 formula s 380 sled and I started having some issues with it today...... It runs good, but when I rev it up, the belt doesn’t engage so the sled remains stationary. I looked at the belt and on the front clutch, there is about 3/8 inch space wiggle room for the belt in between...

    So I just picked up a 2011 Skidoo 800r renegade and it came with a 1.5 inch track extra and wanted to replace the 1.25 ripsaw on it with it but the original owner said that the 1.5 track has wear in the middle from a shock coming loose and wearing through the rubber. The cords aren’t ripped and...

    We just put a new battery in the sled, put in a new voltage regulator, got her all fixed up and ready to roll for the season. We trailer the sleds, get up north and my battery is dead. Throw a charger on it, sled works fine. Later in the evening (3 hours later), we walk past it and realize the...

    Hi I was looking at my skidoo today and I wanted to find out why it sagged to the left when I stood on it, I found that where the top of the front shock connects to the sled is not centred. I’m not sure what could be bent but I’m sure something is I just don’t know what. 2011 skidoo summit x...

    Hello All, I recently purchased a new sled which is a SkiDoo Formula 500 Deluxe. At first I didn't notice but now I realize that it runs 1000 rpms higher than it should. For example before the clutch catches it must reach 4500 RPMs. At speeds around 80 kmh/~50mph it is running at around 7000 to...

    Just got a 1998 mxz Rotax rave ran fine for few minutes then hit brake and the caliper locked up and won’t release. Should I replace cailiper or try taking it apart and cleaning it. If you think I should replace it where would you suggest to buy new caliper. Thanks in advance.
