New to me AC Sled: 2016 ZR 4000 LXR with Pics

Hi everyone. I bought this last week and I'm excited for the snow. I am replacing my Ski Doo Renegade 600 MX-Z.

I did some research on this new one but wanted to see if anyone had any thoughts or suggestions.

Google autofills in some sort of thermostat problem when I type the model in.

Anything else I should check thoroughly? I think my first accessory order is the tunnel case.

Thanks!

Congrats. Summer purchases always make the wait for snow seem long.

Not sure how many miles are on the machine?
I see the stickers, so it maybe it has some clutching. It is always a good idea to check over the weights, rollers, and springs on the clutches. Doesn't matter if stock or not. You have a lot of time waiting for snow. Check the main stuff like bearings and chaincase. No need to crack the case if it doesn't have crazy high miles. Just check the oil. The chassis is pretty solid. Not really any silly break points. Just verify the rail bolts have been tight.
Did you also get the stock skis? Those are nice flickable machines. You might enjoy running stock skis. Easy to try if you have the skis.

We stopped to eat and noticed other riders coming in with snow jammed in their helmets, jackets and gloves. They had snow everywhere. We looked out the door and couldn't see across the street. Six inches of snow fell while we ate a few burgers. That was the start of a great ride.

Don’t mess with it. It is a good running sled. I would take my old 500 over my 600 ctech.

Thanks! It has a hair over 1,000 miles. It looks to need nothing. The original owner indicates he has never changed the plugs so I will probably do that at the minimum. Have a good one everyone

GregB is spot on. Don't touch it. That engine has been around a long time and they are very well tuned. It has very few weak spots and is about as bullet proof in stock form as they come.

With a 1000 miles on it, I would only lube it, change plugs, and change the chain case lube. That's it. Check the exhaust springs to see if any are missing. If so, replace the missing spring and put some RTV silicone on the springs.

It's pretty much a "gas and go" sled.

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!

Looks like it has a 4th wheel kit on it so I wouldn't sweat it.

I agree with the last person. With the 4th wheel kit added and only 1000 miles, don't touch. My 2014 7000 SnoPro has 19,000 miles on it with the 4th wheel kit added almost when new and has not been an issue. New track on mine at 16,000 and everything looked fine at that time.
