In Topic: first timer 850 / Backcountry xrs, what do I need / need to know

03 April 2021 - 08:12 AM

all good stuff guys thanks, 


the few BC's I have seen on the trails all sound like they have a "can", pretty braaappy unless that is the stock exhaust?


I built a flatland freeride version of this out of a 900 renegade a few years ago and it was a hoot, 2" and summit front end, couldn't get the thing stuck around here.


So here is my must have list so far: 

spare belt




I will probably throw some clutching at it at some point I am guessing

 BC is hopefully gonna be my 80/20 off/on sled.  I could care less about the top speed on the 850 personally

gabby69 is right. Gas and oil. These Backcountry sleds are great. I run my 850 BC in NH and ME and it will go places I don't have the skill to keep up with (yet). Great sled, take next year to find out if the limitations are the sled or you. If off trail get the two place linq bag that holds a shovel. If you are riding with a Polaris, get the 4 gal Linq fuel for position 1 and a small Linq bag for position 2. Then bungee your shovel on to that bag. I'm riding with someone on a RMK who is also more skilled. He goes to palces I still get stuck trying to reach but that's my limitation, not the sleds. He gets on my BC 850 and rips it up to his RMK. I need to carry 4 gallons of fuel so he can get his RMK back to our starting point. I'm fine on fuel.

thanks, I am excited for a bit of offtrail, just need to find some people to ride with, not worried about my limits or the sleds. should be fun

In Topic: Is it worth driving to Munising/Wetmore for one last ride?

In Wetmore now, took a rip out to 8 towards Buckhorn and rattled my teeth loose, went to Shingleton, a bit better, headed towards Steuben, and about the same . Plenty of snow.. it’s just piled into mounds
