As for the lettuce, well, the wifey did say to have a salad too.

Anyone watching this year?   Or all the stupid protest chasing people away?

 

Yes, I called them stupid, because it is stupid to actually listen to athletes opinions.  They just need to do what they do best, play the game.  Their opinion is no more important than mine or my neighbors to me.

 

Early season pick to win the Superbowl...    Baltimore Ravens.

One of the last?    Heck, I light up the bonfire all winter long.

 

Kind of prefer winter.   No bugs.   Fired up the fire pit yesterday to burn off a bunch of cardboard and papers.  Took about 5 minutes before all the gnats and no-see-ums showed up, attracted to the heat.

Probably added on by the dealer.   A lot of skidoo people didn't know how to use the choke/enricher  :lol:

 

I know up here a lot of people wanted the primer on there.   Usually meant less pulling.   With choke and primer, you could prime it the standard 3 pumps and then once it fired up, keep it running with the choke.  Ideally,  just putting it half choke and letting it warm up.

 

I prefer primer.   If you let the machine sit for a while, the fuel in the carbs evaporate and it can take a lot of pulls to get the fuel back flowing into the carb.

Make sure the choke is adjusted properly too.  I've seen people adjust them down so they barely open.

#23478063 Plunge primer issues

Posted by TheBearAk on 10 September 2020 - 04:59 AM

don't use WD-40.   It will dry out the rubber o-ring even more.  Might solve the issue immediately, but will fail soon enough.

 

I always use 2 stroke oil.   When you go to store the sled for the summer, suck some 2 stroke into the primer.




#23476833 900ace turbo vs 850

Posted by TheBearAk on 08 September 2020 - 04:15 PM

I think it's funny that one of the common 850 complaints is the 2 stroke smell, when compared to even 10 years ago it's a whole heck of a lot less smelly than what everyone rode with zero whining...


What's going on here, is it the sled or the people riding them?

 

I agree.   Started my old 1999 370 Z in the garage the other day, within 2 minutes, entire garage was filled with 2 stroke smoke with the doors wide open and a exhaust fan going.

 

Started my 2015 etec the next day, it ran for about 5 minutes inside the garage with the main door closed (window with exhaust fan open) and barely any smoke and not much smell.

Can't really compare HP to HP when going from 2S to 4S.  Torque at low speeds for a 4S tells part of the story too.

 

 

I think this thread is going in circles.   Bottom line is what kind of riding do you do.




#23476191 Yank the skid or banana peel method?

Posted by TheBearAk on 08 September 2020 - 03:00 AM

I'll never use the Banana Peel method.   My luck, something would catch, it would rip something else and cause a lot of damage.   Specially with a liquid cooled sled.  My luck it would wrap around an smack a hole in the coolers.

 

There are things you cannot see unless you remove the skid.   The suspension axels, for example.  I'll pull them out of the frame and look at wear and tear, specifically, un-even.  Grease the entire axel and slide back in.   Many people would be surprised that the grease in the zerks don't often reach both ends of the axel.

Plus, it is often hard to see/feel issues with idler bearings while in the track.  Pull the skid out and the idle wheel bearing issues are obvious.

Hope they're not cooking over the burned NFL stuff

Posted by TheBearAk on 07 September 2020 - 03:18 AM

I've always removed the skid, figured it was always a good time to inspect everything at the same time.
