Yes.

OK.
I decided to buy Bearcat 3000 LT.
Ski-doo renegade 600 ace would have been much cheaper, but the test drive solved.
Next week will be a completely new bearcat 3000 LT 2017.
A long time to wait ...

Congratulation on your new sled!
I am liking mine more everytime I ride it.

I managed another 40kms today on some difficult ravines and rolled the cat over at some point. She survived without a hiccup.

I was also able to calculate my fuel consumption. 18L per 100kms. This should get a little bit better after break-in is done.

Keep us updated on your first impressions.

If that's a light run without any sled towed by suit, 18L / 100 km sound like a lot?

My Ski-doo renegade backcountry x 600 e-etc 2014 has consumed the lowest measurement according to 12L / 100km.
It is really low consumption.

I move the snowmobile in winter of about 15,000 -18,000 km(10000-11900miles ) , so fuel economy is of considerable importance.

I've heard that the c-tek2 take a considerable amount more fuel than a Rotax e-etec, and that's why I do not want to buy for example the M 6000.

Keep in mind, I calculated from my first tank of gaz. Warm up times are increased, track, belt and engine still need to break-in, plus it was only slow speeds with about 50 of those kms are pulling a 4x4 groomer.

I am expecting 14 or 15 litres/100kms once the break-in is over.

Gas.

One snowmobile Journal was measured 12L / 100 km consumption Bearcat good way of driving.
Yeah. I expect that kymco consume in moderation fuel?

I am more concerned about reports that the Norwegian bearcat 2016 users have told us - the problems started up at extremely low temperatures.
The engine oil is vented out when it is very cold.
For example, when frost is approaching -40 F

As you can see, I am worried and excited.

I guess I am from a part of this world that does not rely on snowmobiles for survival....because there is no way in hell I would be out there in -40F.

I can tell you that Yesterday it was -25 Celsius here and the Bearcat had no issues at all, starting and running.

What is the issue they are reporting with venting? Does the oil squirt out? Probably just a frozen vent valve, in -40F its not surprising.

I do not know occurring in Norway failures any more?

Today, I have applied for a new bearcat, and when I tried to start it, -15 c. frost, so it did not go off?
Starter until the end of the battery.
Only once it was trying to send off, approx. 1 sec.

Whatdo do i do? I called a dealer, and talked about some of the throttle micro-switches that do not work?
Snowmobile to the previous night in a warm garage, so whether it should be frozen on the sledge?

I have not driven any more than a car trailer.

Where Bearcat battery located? Is there a big job detach it from the download?

The battery is under the seat. Just fold the top of the storage bag and remove the Torx screw, then pull the seat backwards.

Charge the battery and it will be fine. Mine was almost dead when I got it from the dealer, after a good 12hours charge at low amperage, its been great in very cold temps.


Also, mine had bad gas in it from the dealer. I topped it with fresh super and it was much easier to start and idle better. Next tank was just fresh regular 81 octane and it runs good.

Instrument battery voltage meter showed only 10.5, which I think is low?
The battery does not even been able to launch too many times.
I noticed as soon as the battery has no power.
The battery is now CTEK polar MXS 5.0 Smart Charger until the morning.
Let's see tomorrow what happens?

Yes.

I downloaded the battery, and bearcat started immediately.
So my first day bearcat realized.
95 kilometers we drove today, and i'm really excited.

My friend who has Lynx Xtrim 600 2015 ace wanted to test drive my bearcat.
I found that kymco engine is slightly more powerful than the ace.
BRP electric throttle grip is quite strange when the engine starts with movements unevenly.
Bearct the throttle grip operates smoothly taking the engine.


After the first day I can be happy with my choice.

Driving continues tomorrow again ...
