Ok, found a triple that I'm interested in. It's a 99 yamaha vmax 600 dx. two up touring sled. Has about 16000 km on it with a year old dealer done rebuild. What do you guys think of this sled? The 2 up suits my family needs and the 3 in a row should make it go. Anyone ever seen or have experience with one of these?
Its a good sled as long as it has been maintained. The 600 triple isn't the biggest HP maker, only about 110hp, but it is reliable. There are performance mods you can do fairly easily however, if you feel like you want more cheap power down the road.
I would check to see what was done to the motor, check the compression, and all of the usual items. Check over the suspension for any damage or excessive wear. At that mileage some bushings and bearings may need replacing, if it hasn't been done before.
While you are checking the suspension, look at the shocks. If they are aluminum bodied, they are rebuildable and ride much better than the steel bodied non-rebuildable. One of the biggest differences is the step type adjuster on the steel bodied, and the threaded adjuster on the aluminum bodied.
I've always thought the trip v maxes were under appreciated. My busies dad had one and he kept up with my 670 all the time. They're a solid sled all the way around. Just needs a few more inches of travel
8 years late to say who the heck asks "does Ski-doo make a triple?" O boy. All in good fun, but yes they did and they made plenty of great triples. I currently still own a 1997 Formula 111 and I'll tell you, it has its own personality but once its dialed in it is a beast! Still stock pipes but there is no need for a change. The triple sound from that sled gets heads turning. Purple Screamer!
Well as the snowmobiling season is getting wrapped up in central mn, it’s time for the fixing and modding to begin! I have a 95 rxl engine with carbs currently. This summer I want to convert it back to efi. Buttt I want to make it a lot better with more power. So.....

I have a 1971 Ski Doo T'NT 399 and am curious about how the fuel lines work with the tilloston carb.
There are 2 fuel lines from the tank directly to the carb. One goes into the side and feeds it and the other is on the bottom of the filter. Is this correct? Is there a pulse line? I...
sled is a Skidoo Summit Sport 600 carb 2019, just got it a few weeks ago and has about 100km on it now. Sled went weird when i was going across ice and now it sounds the total opposite of what its supposed to sound like.
Wont go above 6000 rpm or 60 kmh
Engine sounds weird
I have two liquid sleds, Indy 650 and Indy 500. After the 650 cooked a piston I've decided not to trust idiot lights anymore.
I'd like to put in a guage. Are there any aftermarket kits for this? Have any of you tried this? Or do I buy a mechanical one from NAPA and bolt it somewhere...
