    I'm looking for an opinion on the necessity of spending money on the purchase of the rear bumper. BRP says it increases the towing capacity from 300 to 1500 lbs. They label it as an essential purchase ! My beef is why don't they include it with the factory package if it's essential ? OK...I...

    So I have a 2017 900 ace WT that I inherited from my late grandfather. It hasn’t given me any problems for 3 years besides a dirty fuel screen but now it doesn’t want to start. I hooked up a jumper pack to it and it fired right up so I thought “oh sweet maybe I just have to charge the battery”...

    Folks. The "Neglected-Abused / Rolled down the ski hill / 2014 Skandic Rebuild" is nearing the end. Now trying to track down some open wires and a few shorts. I have the wire diagram from the Parts Website and I have the full Service and Operating Manuals. These give block diagrams, but not...

    Folks: I am well into the re-build on an abused 2014 Skandic WT 600 Ace. The Odo says 8,300 miles but seriously doubting that value. The abuse was complete. One of the brake pistons was worn away at an angle where it should have been contacting the shoe. One of the caliper attachment bolts...

    First, I want to especially than suv1 for all the advice you give. Wow. Your help and well written posts are amazing. Second, I'm new to sledding, and have fallen in love with the sport. Purchased a "almost totally wrecked" 2014 Skandic, and for for a Corona Virus Project, doing what is...

    2019 Ski-doo Skandic WT 600 ACE. First trip out after picking up from dealer it died while riding, when throttling up to climb out of a ditch. Eventually restarted and brought back to dealer and they said likely loose battery connection. Next trip out machine would top out, with throttle pressed...

    Hello folks, first post here. I actually joined the forum for this issue despite reading it for years. This season, my Skandic has been giving me DESS issues. Not every time, but on 70% of starts, I get the steady beep and flashing DESS light. The machine may not move for sometimes 3 or 4...

    Hello, I love the forum, old Doos and looking for some advice. I have three Cheyenne 503s and I have to choose one to be my main sled, and I'll be selling one. They're all basically the same, but the main difference is the '91 has an updated gearbox and some weird extra brake lever thing that...

    Has anyone combined two windshields together to make the factory one taller? I just picked up an old windshield off an older tundra I believe and I was thinking of attaching the two to make my current one 12-18in higher. I figured pop rivets would be best to attach them but curious if anyone has...

    I have a 2006 skidoo skandic 550F and I have been using Castrol 2T snowmobile oil in it. I wanted to get everyone's opinion on if I should stick with it or switch to another injection oil, I operate generally in colder weather. The person I purchased it from ran mineral oil in it. It seemed to...

    G'day, Rented out 2017 Skandic 550 SWT to a few researched from down south. Comes back and 2nd gear doesn't work. No horrible crunch noises coming from the transmission, 1st and Reverse are working, haven't noticed any cracks in the transmission case at all. Haven't drained the fluids to...

    Just got the email with pricing info on the new utility accessories they teased in the release videos. What do you think? What I was really interested in was the chainsaw and axe mount. The video showed an LED light mounted on a fuel caddy, but I can't seem to find it on the website. I like...

    Has anyone modded their BRP/Ski-Doo Cargo Box (860200395)? I am thinking some tie-down points, bracket for ice fishing gear, or something along those lines but there are a lot of angles to the sides and the plastic doesn't seem that thick...

    What is the hole for on the bottom of BRP's new OEM J-Hitch (860201142)? https://www.ski-doo.com/shop/accessories-shop-by-usage/recreational_utility/j-hitch---_skandic-wt-swt-expedition-se-le-xtreme.html Thanks!

    Hi Folks. I normally trailer the SWT because we carry another machine or fuel or equipment but am wondering if anyone loads theirs in the back of a truck. I have a Ford F250 current model with a 6.75' box and would like to have the option to not take the trailer for short hauls on tight...

    My 1993 Skandic II 377 has Mikuni carbs VM 34 428 on PTO side and VM 34 429 on mag side. What is the difference between these two carbs? Also, does anyone have info for the factory settings. Can’t find any info on these carbs.

    Hello Folks. I am new to the forum and need some help. I just picked up a Skandic SWT 900 ACE brand new. I took it out for the first easy ride and clocked approximately 35km yesterday evening. It was fantastic: nimble, responsive, quiet and just a real town car compared to the Alpine it is...

    In the past I just duct tape all the holes shut on my cowling for breaking trail but that was on Skandic 600 liquid 2 strokes. What are you all doing with ACE cowlings? All that exposed frog skin worries me and traveling with a buddy on 600 ACE a few years ago he choked on powder all the time...

    Just took the 4 stroke plunge on a 2015 Skandic WT 900 ACE for fuel economy and low end torque. I bought it off Craigslist with 750 miles on it, appears to be very well taken care of. In my first 75 miles on groomed trail I used 6 gallons gas. (topped it off before I left and right when I got...
