Anyone else getting parts, looking at their new sled or prepping their machines yet?


Recommended Posts

I sent a set of shocks to Mike Carver for a revalve/upgrade and am making a list of shit I want/need on the shelf now for spares or otherwise, before winter rolls in and there's another parts shortage.  

Anyone actually get their new 2022 sled(s) yet?

Busted the ol goat out of the corner today and put some stank in the neighborhood air.     

I know.  It’s seemingly never the true motorsports enthusiast out their wicking it up that are the most dangerous.  It’s the ones out there smelling the pines being completely oblivious.  Also, these 

Whew!  Never did a side by side before.  One of these is so the spindles have something to rest on at the dealership.  The other is for actual riding.

Just scratching my ass while I procrastinate.

But I do have a order to send in to Woody's and an impressively long list for my Enticer project.

Looked at a 120 race sled for the boy.  "Looked" mostly out of curiosity because the one was $10k...

@fortune46x has to know who's selling a 120 - there was a bunch f/s at the end of season last year.  The little mods sound cool, and those parents spend big $ on them.  Check here https://www.facebook.com/groups/1620648984822042

Enticer... is this Larry?

We've just been looking at 120, 206 and 200 race sleds for now.  Amazing what people will dump in to those.

Enticer project is a 1 lunger racer.  Thank God the base sled was cheap.

I've been starting to think about getting fixing. 

RMK needs tunnel straightened, rear bumper/tunnel brace, its getting pistons at minimum, have to see what kind of shape crank and bearings are in. Engine is my usual 2,000 mile maintenance.  Clutches obviously yearly. Skid will get its yearly disassemble, cleaning, fixing any bent/broken/cracked/worn areas. I'll freshen shocks. Hopefully track is fine yet. Gear drive belt is due for change, I may gear down at same time. 

 

Trail sled and backup mountain sled should be good to go. They never get used. 

 

My brother has 2 trail sleds in desperate need of attention. I'll have to do those also. If he touches them, I'll end up fixing his fuck ups.

Completely went through everything (Besides the clutches on the '21) on the two main trail sleds last April.  Third/backup only got 145 miles last year, so it should be good to go.

Now attacking the '21 with new clutch springs, roller bearing in secondary, and adjustable weights in the primary.  All parts should be on hand in the next couple days (Barring a mistake by Polaris on the availability of the springs).

I've been buying lots of parts, and memorabilia for the garage.  I did a motor swap in the 99 Z and got it all cleaned up, registered and am going to post for sale this weekend.  I'll probably take apart another motor and start doing the work to it before installing in sled later in winter.  I probably won't do much more actual work to machines until after Thanksgiving.  But I'll still be buying stuff, I have a ton of awesome period specific Cat stuff to go up in the garage and my parts bins are full.

24 hours from now I'll be roaming the Princeton swap.. can't wait.  I'm picking up an ebay winning there also.

Keep an eye open for a mid height windshield for me.  Had to use my spare that was squirreled away in the attic last winter after breaking one on a branch sticking out of the darkness.  :(

I'll add it to the mental list.  That's probably not a bad thing to buy regardless because they're so sought out, I sold mine in under a day last year for a profit.  Good thing you had the spare

Now that swap meet season is here I should get the bravo and parts sled out and list them to see if there's any interest.

The great thing about Bravo's is I could probably sell them on a 90° summer day

Just be sure to put "too much" for a price.

isn't it customary every sledder to be  scrabbling a week before the first snow? 

Not really.  At least not the guys I know.  Usually, we tinker with them all summer.  My old date for “put back together” was SX kick off T-giving weekend.  Now, I don’t even have one.  This too shall change…like the fucking climate!  :lol:
