Looking at adding a silber to my T3. I don't have anything against any other brands. I just want a silber for bolt on reasons. Who has the most miles on their silber and did you have any major issues? I've only seen a couple reviews but I'm curious about their longevity. Thanks for any input!

A guy I rode with last season is running a Silber kit this season on a T3. He just installed it the other day so no ride reports yet.

 

I run a BD kit and love every minute of it. :D

My buddy has had 2 of them now. One on a '13 XM 163 and last year on a T3 174.
They worked good. He bought a new Axys and is putting one on that too.

Plus on occasion I have ridden with another guy who has a Silber kit on his 174. Let me tell you he is crazy and runs his sled very hard and that sled doesn't miss a beat.

Haha I am sure the BD kit works great! And I am looking forward to writing a review as well as hearing your buddies on the Silber!

Hey thanks for the input! Fellow North Dakotan haa. That's a good review I think I will be happy with it. How many miles did they put on each sled? And why is it they got rid of them so quickly to get something else? Isn't the T3 174 turbo the bees knees?

My buddy traded the '13 for his T3. Rode T3 and traded for the Axys. He liked his Doos. He was on Cat before that. Not brand loyal.
The other guy I ride with on occasion who runs his sled hard is keeping his for another year.

Ahh the frustration of the turbo forum user.  My buddy / I knew a guy / mine has nothing to do with this post but here it is anyways.

My brother in laws mother's boyfriend's sled ran fine!

Long story short, you will need to stock and or have a spare top end after each season if only for preventative maintenance. Two stroke turbos always run nice when turned but they're hard on the motor regardless.

Reeds, intakes, Pistons, belts you name it. More parts more problems, if you don't mind tuning and trouble shooting you'll be fine.

If you're the guy who pays someone to do all his work, bring coin!

That's not been my experience with this sled at all.

Turbos are funny. They beat up some sleds and other sleds go 2000 miles with just the regular maintainance. I know of 4 sleds all with over 2000 miles and only one of them has had the top end done so far.


As far as silber goes I've heard they are good. Never been around one though.

When I installed new pistons in my 12 as part of the piston recall the motor looked absolutely perfect inside even after 1200 miles of boost.  I had the block honed by local dealer and he inspected the used pistons and block and remarked that everything looked great.  This was on a Turbo Performance kit.  I reinstalled the same reeds I had ran for 1200 miles also as they looked like new yet.

If you are directing your post towards me, then sorry if I offended you and your sarcasm is taken tongue in cheek. It is just my experience from riding with my friends who have them. Nothing more nothing less.

I had a short season due to contract work. 350 miles on the turbo 6 (2600 total), took a little while to dial in but it flat-out rips. Basically the same setup as the 800etec, but different fueling and clutching. No problems with belts, pistons, or anything else. That's with 8lbs of boost too.
