    SKIDOO BUDS COMPUTER

    Does anyone have access to a skidoo buds system or know the mobile buds repair guy"s phone number. I just rebuilt an etec and need to have the computer switched in to break in mode, valves synced, and the oil pump purged all electronically, don't have the time to drop off the sled and leave it for a week.
  7. Hey, I have a 2010 Polaris rush 600. motor is blown and I have traced the fuel injector wires on the PTO side upper injector. The 2 wires have been rejoined with a wire connector. It looks like the belt blew up and ripped the wires, the previous owner reattached the wires but I guess he didn't do a good job because the pto side over heated, my guess is the injector did not get the proper amount of current from the patched wires. I don't want to rebuild the top end only to have it blow up on me. Can you swap out the harness and injectors with the motor in the sled? does any one have any ideas on what to do, ? you can't just buy 1 injector harness, need to buy all 4 ideas? comments? my injectors are good, just have patched wires

    Spring/Summer 2018

    OMG the price of used seadoos, sellers want huge money for piles of shit. People want almost full price for skis with engine damage or major issues. I guess sleds aren't any different come fall. I guess it is good in one way as I sold my jet boat for way more money than I was expecting WATCH OUT if you are on your phones while driving. The cops are driving a full size white chevy van with ladder racks on the roof, also driving a black chevy truck 1500 crew with a cap on it... guess who is driving in uniform with undercover flashing lights on the front and back

    Some Great News from the OFSC

    if everything is done electronically, cost are kept down for passes. I have to trail pass 4 sled for 1 day as I don't have a cottage and I want to get out with my family. forget all the other costs which are considerable. for the 2 times a year I can get away with my family it really add to my daily bill 4x$70 for a day pass. $35 would make it more reasonable for a day trip. otherwise I will wait till simcoe freezes and just go and ride the lake and canals for a few hours(not as fun as trail riding) I like to use the free weekend to go away and get 2 days of riding in. my kids love it. now tell me you don't or have never used a loop hole in your favor... you are on the opposite side of the coin as me, but if you push out some of the marginal riders, along with aging riders, loosing trails, all in costs and bad weather, short season... you will slowly kill this sport and everyone will switch to atv's. Quebec saw the light and made a decision to look ahead and to strengthen their trail system where they could. I see the dilemma in business, you have a contractor who charges very high money and does less jobs, he is successful,(keeps costs down, less jobs) but there is also the contractor who charges less and does more jobs, probably higher costs but is also successful. in good times, good economy floats all boats, in slower times some boats sink, yes you can drop your prices to adapt. but home repairs are a need, not a want. in sledding lowering the costs in bad times will not work because you will have drove marginal riders out and demographics are not in ofsc favor

    Some Great News from the OFSC

    back on topic I would like to see a 1 day pass at @$35, instead of having to buy a $70 pass bring back free family day passes I was driving in Quebec the last week end in feb. lots of trails run beside the highway from montreal up to Quebec city. sleds wiping by 100 kph, ATV trails run right beside the sled trails. I saw more groups of atv and SxS on the trails than sleds. the same was evident driving all through the province. that should be an option for the ofsc also. I feel that an atv is not the same rush as driving a sled... you are still getting out and having fun with friends or family
