CONGRADULATIONS!!!!! nice sled man!! did you mix the first tank of gas with oil?? if you did, run that tank as low as possible before filling up again. dont run it full throttle for very long at a time, but short bursts are fine. have fun!!!

Haven't even started it yet, NO SNOW!!!
The owner's manual says to do a 100:1 mixture the first tank, my Dad thinks this might foul the plugs. Will it?

if the owners manuel says to do a 100:1 mix, do it!! who gives a damn if it fouls the plugs, they're $7 for a pair.

Hey g-force, nice sled, i almost got the same thing but got a snopro instead since my dealer had a carryover. As hillbilly800 said,your supposed to mix the first tank of fuel with 90% breakin oil and the 10% thats left over in the tank. Then just fill the oil tank and get ridin. I broke mine in for 175 miles. You prob dont have to go this long but i did and iam havin no troubles at all at 300miles. happy ridin.:cool:

You need to bring that new machine up to Bruce County and break it in, they've finally promised us snow all week long.

Just head west until you hit Lake Huron. The only way to get here today is by sled, all the roads are closed due to the storm that's hitting us.:)
