2015 skidoo 1200 mxz x decals??

19 October 2020 - 12:38 PM

I purchased last spring.  Noticed the right panel has a small crack near the vent by your feet.  I found the part on marketplace cheap but I am trying to get all the stock decals.  I can not find this decal any where.  516006632


Anyone have any idea where I can find that decal or perhaps have it made?  I have searched every where and cannot find it in stock.  or If someone has a 2015 x right panel that is mint and parting out maybe let me know.


Any help or direct is appreciated.





Leak down test???? What do you use

09 October 2020 - 10:11 AM

I would like to perform a leak down test on my 2015 1200.  The problem is, I have never done one and I am not sure what set up you use to perform this.


Is there a simple device you guys use?  I was looking at this but seems to be the wrong plug size.


Any help, tips, advice would be great.

I am completely stumped.

09 March 2020 - 01:18 PM

So I got this sled from complete slouch to the wife saying last weekend "I hit 90!" lol.  big thanks to many dootalkers with set up and answering my questions, she is loving it. 


But I am stumped and cannot figure out why her track doesn't roll even close to as easy as my 1200.  Same rmotion, same tension and alignment, dupont slides, both 120's, same stud pattern, everything is the same, except xs vs xr.  the only difference is my xr has 4th wheel kit.


So Sunday am, snow is nice frozen spring snow.  Steep hill outside my parents house, I give enough throttle to descend down the hill and my 1200 can roll to the bottom without touching the gas again. the 900 ace will stop 1/4 way down.  Give it gas it rolls again, but then stops, like the brakes are on.  My 1200 clutch set up has more engine breaking than the 900 and it still rolls better.  I put both sleds on jack stands and grab the secondary and the 900 takes much more effort to spin the track and the track noise is much louder when the engine spins it.  I watch both sleds over and over on the stand and can't see a difference.


I know something is not right but I can't see it or find it.  I know because when I put it in reverse, my 1200 just rolls backwards and the 900 ace doesn't want to move, and when it starts to move you can feel something catching almost, a resistance pulse you could say.  On the stand, can't tell, I look and watch and spin by hand, slides look good, but when I put it on the ground it almost burns the belt before it moves.


If you have any recommendations I am all ears.  I'll try anything at this point.



Oxygen Helmets worth it? Communicators work?

12 February 2020 - 07:12 AM

So the wife wants an Oxygen helmet so I'm thinking I could use the upgrade as well.  2 is better than 1.  Now these are pricey and all the threads I see are small problems a first year helmet can have.  For those that have upgraded, are you happy with your purchase?  I have a BV2S and I like it but it would be nice to get rid of the breather.


We use Collette communicators and love having them, who is using the Oxygen and communicators?  Anyone using collette specifically?


Thanks for any input on the helmet.

900 ace front bumper reinforcement

21 January 2020 - 10:26 AM

So I park the sled in my fathers old barn.  I tend to pick up the rear and front of the sled a lot, moving it around and making room for the other sleds.  the 900 ace I noticed the front bumper has no brace?  seems it is only hooked to the plastics.  I feel I'm going to break this thing.  It is starting to move up and down.  my 1200 has a brace that hooks to the bumper.  I have been searching all morning but I can't seem to find if I can buy a brace that fits in the bulk head and hooks to the bumper to make it much more robust.


Anyone have a fix to this or recommendation?
