Also the belts on these sleds appear to be kevlar correct? can a belt from a F 8 be substituted to save money without ill effects? thanks
D&D or similar Y pipe with Boondocker is strongly suggested. While providing extra insurance against a burn down it also means you can stick with regular vs premium fuel.
Clutch kit, tested lots of different combos in my '07 + '08, best to date is the Stage II torsional kit from BMP, suggest you shim the spider for best results. It's a plug n play kit that works extrememly well in a hot trail sled.
Plowman mount = absolute must have.
With the above you'd expect to run 1500 - 2000 miles on a belt, makes even the expensive 060 belt very affordable to use. Best to buy em in bulk packs off ebay, works out to about $115-$120/belt.
Sled has a ton of rear spring in it stock, I'd first try servicing the shocks n riding to see how you make out / set of alum rear blocks gives you more spring adjustment if req'd.
Good see another F rider in Ontario / I'm in Scarberia / my F10 is for sale / riding an '11 800 HO Ltd next year.
Nice sled / enjoy
