I am guessing it was not right out of the crate with the # 42 and after-market riser on it. If you are not doing any extreme powder riding then I would take it out. You won't need to shorten the cables and it could be added back on afterwards. It is a beautiful sled and I wish I owned one but you will find the ride better, more comfortable and easier to handle if you remove the riser.

I think there are 2 different motors for that one I will guess the 600

but it could be the 4 stroke 1200

Yep, you got it right Tracker ;)

 

 

 

Thanks guys, and yes it is a HO 600 STI, and no not out of the crate. Paul is considering taking the riser off, we'll see how it handles first I guess.

Nice ride... try it with the riser before you get rid of it. It looks like it keeps you straight up and down instead of hunched over.

Congrats on the new machine :thumbsup_anim: . The Whities don't have a chance now. That trailer would make a nice fish hut, just need a couple holes in the floor and your good. :thumbsup_anim:

OMG :worthy::clapping::thumbsup_anim::w00t:

 

That is friggin awesome Joey! I just finished reading your post about the MTO, then CT. They are all MUPPETS!

 

However, i would go through all that 10 times to own a sled like that. I'm drooling into the keyboard, my XLT was bought when i knew little about sleds, not the best for breaking trail or deep snow, but that sled you got will go through anything, the beast will glide/float/fly over slush.

 

I cant bare it, i haven't even got the strength left to mention that awesome trailer!

 

Very happy for ya both, i'd say enjoy, but that would be redundant....anyway...i'll say it...ENJOY!

 

 

PS....Happy New Year to you and Paul.

 

Simon.

I can really appreciate your new ride. Would love to have had it back when......

I finally got over my affair when I was almost 10 miles (yes, miles) from home and hit something in the ditch. I pulled out on to the road and "High Tailed It" for home. This was after dark and the steady stream of sparks from the skis, was impressive. I parked the sled and sold it. There wasn't the trail network there is now or maybe I would still be into it.

Nice ride and have fun.

Very nice set up.

both the sled and the trailer! :thumbsup_anim:

 

what you do need is a set of ski guides from Royal Distributing for the trailer.

the carbides will tear the crap out of the floor, and it will help paul from hitting the walls LOL.

a trailer hitch and a sleigh with a rigged tow bar, for your fishing gear or Paul depending on your mood Joey--- :rofl2:

 

oh dont forget about a cover for the sleigh or it will fill up with snow.

Great Choice!

    • New toy, for when I am not fishing *NF*

      So a lot has happened in the past 6 years for me and now here I am.  By that I mean a newer relationship and new hobbies too.  Yes I still fish as often as I can (I just don't share my findings now) but my old passion to ride is back.  Today I finally got my own 'bike'. It's a 2015 Yamaha FZ-07 with less than 1600KM on it and it's mint AND has the upgraded Hindel exhaust!  Time to ride to my spots

    • Got a new truck today

      I bought a new F150 Lariat last year and absolutely loved the truck but there was a serious issue with the 5 litre engine so Ford installed another engine recently and that one had issues too. I told them I was done with the 5 litre and didn't want the truck back. I wanted to replace the truck and get one with the 3.5 EcoBoost instead and I've never seen a dealership do so much to make a customer happy. There's already a great "Employee Discount" thing going on which knocks a pile of $$$$ o

      Finally got the new motor installed on my Smokercraft. With the old Optimax I would top out at 41MPH (2 people) at about 6000 RPM (It was probably more like 5800 RPM - don't think the gauge was all that accurate).  With the new motor I am topping out at 44MPH @ 5500 RPM.  So I have a little more RPM's to get out of it.  Currently running a Rebel SS 3 Blade - 3x15 1/4x19RX Prop.  When the Marina did the water test, they were hitting 6000 RPM with an Aluminum 3x14.5 19P (Not sure on speed, as
