GREAT DEALS on new Yamaha & Ski-Doo Sleds

I am a Yamaha & Ski-Doo Dealer in Utah.  We are located close to
Wyoming and Colorado.  Not only do we offer great prices and service
but if you live in CO. or WY you can save the sales tax if you
purchase out of state.  In these states your registration laws are
simple and you don't have to pay sales tax when you get your
new machine registered.  Also we privide UPS service on parts and acc.
and the same tax rules apply.  In most cases we can provide great prices
and free freight to the western region.

If interested please e-mail me and I will supply prices and delivery
info on request.  Also if anyone has any tech. questions or problems
with the brands I sell I would be more than happy to help, or at
least listen to your input.

Thanks in advance.....

Rick

Rick,

I'd like to take you up on your offer to address techical issues
on all models.  I posted a question here a while ago but it seems
that either nobody had the answer or nobody had interest enough
to respond.

Due to a last ride of the year suspension breakdown, I did not
winterize my sled properly last year.  It is a simple unit, a
1980 citation w/377 engine.  If I brought this sled to your dealer-
ship and asked you to get it ready for the winter, what would you
suggest doing to it?  I'm fairly handy, I rebuilt the motor 3 years
ago and it has been solid since, I'm just not sure what I have to
do.

Thanks

Tom Ott

Tom, you're sweating this too much.  Just put some fresh gas in it and see
if it starts.  Many, many sleds (and other machines) are never stored
"right", and yet they run after a year or two of sitting around.  I'm not
recommending people to not store things right, but all is not lost, that's
for sure.  Just start it.

Dear Tom,
        Thanks for the question.   Basically, when we get a sled ready for winter, we
check the cranking compression and do a leak-down test of the engine.  This will catch any
potential leaks that can cause unstable idle or running, overheating and even worse.  If the
engine checks ok then you need to start the sled and check idle and throttle response.
If there are any plugged pilot jets or fuel delivery problems they should show up if you run
the sled with the track in the air.  Also check the hyfax and all of the bearings and bushings
in the rear suspension and bogey wheels.  Change your gear oil and check the tension of the
drive chain and track.  Remove your belt and clutchs and clean them thouroughly.  Check for worn
bushings or pitted surfaces.  Also be sure to check belt alignment and tension.  Also,
check your airbox for debris.  I know it may sound funny, but we get a suprising number of sleds
in that have hornet or mouse nests in the airboxes(not good if the engine is started
with these in place).  Also check your pull rope and replace if it has any wear.  It is
way better to spend a few bucks and a few minutes now as to have it break on the
trail in a blizzard.  If you can, run your engine after dark and make sure the coils and
plug wires aren't leaking voltage (*you can see it and here it, just don't touch it!).  And finally
replace your fuel & oil filters and spark plugs before your first ride.
        I know all of this is generic info.  If you need any specs on your sled just e-mail me
and I can help you out.

        Have fun!
