I would like to get some Sled Brite but not seeing any Canadian dealers. I bought some at Ingles Performance in Phoenix NY when we were allowed to visit there, back when the world was normal. I am not paying the $34 for it from Amazon.
I didn't see it coming at all. My first thought when things locked down was everyone is going to be losing their homes and fighting over the last box of Kraft dinner! I figured luxury items like powersports would go belly up. It's the same here ( east coast Canada) outdoor activities are crazy. Prices have gone insane, housing market is nuts. Places are selling for double their market value. A mobile home in a trailer park just sold for $250K and you don't own the land and still pay lot rent!
Sure wish I had a few rental houses I could sell and semi retire!
It is crazy. We have a couple dumps in east London ON that we have owned for years. Not much mortgage on them so I am selling one right now. Have to take advantage of the covid stupidity and cash out big time.
I have a 17 renegade X 850, same thing exactly happened to me on a trip. Had to tip the sled on its right side all week to get it to start, PITA.
When I got home, I pulled the hood, pulled the muffler, removed the flywheel cover (4 bolts then plastic cover comes off) You can then see the starter on the right side. There is what seems to be a spring loaded shaft there (I am not a mechanic so forgive me) but I took a new toothbrush and a can of brake cleaner and I sprayed the shaft, and cleaned it with that toothbrush until that shaft moved nicely again. It was an easy job and the starter has worked perfectly since. That shaft was filthy with grime. Brake and belt dust I assume. Beats paying $700 + at the dealer. Who knows how long that repair will last but I am willing to try.
