not sure if it still has the cat tri hub, but if so, many DO feel its a part that can be upgraded to a better design, so if a bearing in it goes south, things don;t freeze up!
the 16's and up, got the better bearings, but, its still the tri hub design
Larson racing or J&T seem to be the one's most prefer!
I would also make sure to check the hose clamps on ALL things that have them, MANY seem to have been snug lightly from factory and as heat cycles on hoses, things shrink and harden a little and them become loose then! also some clamps sure seem cheap THIN. narrow one's, where you can also upgrade to a wider one too if one wished !
something I would MAYBE do if mine, is I would pull ski's off, I know my 7000 when I checked the ski's you could really see, it was wearing very funny on carbides, and adjusted for it!
and switched to DuPont slides/hyfaxes!
but nice sled for sure, I hope you get lots of snow this winter to enjoy it!
