Its so when you fall of the back your arm doesnt get sucked in and ripped off... Oh, wait that happened. .

Longer track= more flotation and traction in deep snow, worse turning radius unless you know what youre doing. It IS a blast, whish I could afford to do it!

Was a good day on Frisbee, good snow coverage, some sunshine. First day on the new long track Timbersled and the new bored and stroked motor. Gonna be a good winter.

My buddy built carbon fiber Rev 1 chassis and put a turbo on his own, this was his ride.



But then along came these things which threw his life way out of balance, this is this years creation, CR 500, bored, ported and good reeds with the new long track. I know he will be doing some wonderful carbon work soon as he gets just a little bored. Heres last Saturdays fun.

Awesome. I have been wondering why it seems like no one is putting tracks on big fat 2 strokes! Seems like they would be perfect for something like that. Someone really needs to do it with the Maico 700 though.

I drug an old KTM 495 out of a junkyard with a track in mind... Course, I'll never have the time or $$$ to do it so it 'll just sit there, while I dream...

I would really like to ride this thing instead of wrenching on it.

Oil line got re-routed the right way, not a hack-job ziptie fix like Polaris recommends...


Oil pump linkage lock nut was torqued on hard enough to bend the tab its on before coming loose.


Muffpot installed.


Skis aligned (left one was way off)


and the exhaust spooge line rerouted to dribble out the bottom of the sled, instead of all over the engine.

...SNIP...

That seems like a ton of shit to do on a brand new sled, or a brand new anything for that matter. Customizing I understand, but jeez... Is that typical for new sleds?
