    So I have an 02 zr500 (carb) and it starts really hard; and on a below zero day, it just doesn’t wanna start. Once it’s gets started, it’ll run really good though. There is fuel getting through the lines, I’m very sure that it’s getting air, I just took apart and cleaned my carbs last year, and...

    Hi, My first post. I own '95 and '99 Ski Doos and want a 3rd sled for my son but naturally on tight budget. I found for sale a 2000 ZR500 APV which states "engine needs to be rebuilt, spring on power valves broke, the sled other than the engine is in great shape with 3,411 miles on it". Asking...

    well, got the 99 ZR rebuilt and as for all my earlier posts, I appreciate all the hints and tips and suggestions. All of the issues I was having with my bottom end being crap have gone. Took it out for a test spin in our crappy Ohio snow and she runs like a champ. I found that the bearing...

    Hi the speedo stopped working on my 2000 zr 500 and after pulling it apart I saw it was the key that broke. Since I need a new key I plan on replacing the bearing on the speedo side. I was wondering if I have to pull the jackshaft out to replace them or is there a way to replace it without...

    Looking at buying a 99 zr 500 efi liquid with 2100 miles, or a 99 that is carbed liquid with 1750 miles , is the 500 of that year reliable or should I run for the hills. Any advice or experiences would be very helpful.

    I have a major project that I have gotten myself into, and I thought id just throw it on here what im doing to see if anyone has any input or advice for me. What I started with was a fully stock 2001 ZR 500, carb, 121, the whole 9 yards. I started by taking the track back to 136" with tunnel...

    Hi, im currently running a 2000 zr 500 with a 1 in track with ALOT of studs in it. I kind of want to get away from having a studded track (Due to restricted trails and chance of putting a stud through a cooler) so i was wondering what people think of either a cobra 1.3 sno pro track or a intense...

    Hi I just bought a 2000 zr500 efi and we hauled it home in a snow Storm and the next day I go to start it and the recoil rope doesn't want to go back in the recoil housing after I pull it over. I was wondering if maybe it got snow in the recoil or if i should just pull the housing off and lube...

    I had a power valve destroy a piston a couple weeks ago :angry:. I'm in the process of rebuilding and looking at the cylinder and valve, it seems like the valves were installed upside down. The large bevel side was down, if you flip it over ( bevel up)it rests perfectly in the stops in the...
