Hello, do the newer sleds tell you when the machine is warmed up and if not how long should you give it? Also do they need to warm up if say you stop to eat for a hour? Thanks

SImple answer is yes, the newer sleds (2013 and up) XM chassis sleds do. Im fairly confident the entire line up does with etec-s. When you stop, it depends on how long for, and how cold it is. if you stop on a -30 day, your sled will need to warm up, guaranteed. on the new sleds, the machine flashes "warm up" until it has reached temperature. hope it helps.

When you don't have premium gauges it doesn't tell you. It just idles up

I usually start mine before I put my gear on. Couple minutes later I'll ride it easy to completely warm it up. Usually 10-15 minutes before I start to hammer on it.

The premium guage sleds will display warm up until the sled it warmed up, I don't believe the regular guage a will do this as my friends 13 tnt 800 does not. My sled is always done with warmup at 3 bars on the temp guage, so if you don't have the premium gauges I would just shoot for the 3 bars

Base model sleds don't have temp gauge either. Just a warning light when you over heat it

Since I only have about 12 miles on my 16 Gade, I cannot speak to the warm up portion. But, I can tell you after it is warmed up, it will shut itself down rather than just sit and idle and load up the plugs. Kind of surprised me the first time it shutdown. Wasn't sure if it was out of gas or it had an issue.

On my Mach Z; it will run in high idle mode until warm at around 2,000-2,200 then drop to 1,800-2,000rpm once warm- You can definitely tell. The etec is a marvel; it does the same thing, and the premium gage also lets you know what's up, too.

Here is the simple answer.......just ask my wife.......just start up the sled and take off immediately.

She don't care if it's warmed up or not.

If the sled is running, she is putting throttle to it.

No questions asked.

the Mach only warmed up until the temp was 103... Then she dropped down. You can always hear the warm up shut down...idle drops way down
