Tried ordering the "elTigre" hood decals through AC, but they are discontinued, so I called a sign store. The guy came over to see the decal I had left on the hood, measured, took a pic., and made a couple of beauties for me. Wow, they're perfect, except for the thickness. The OEMs seemed to have a metal type of backing, but you'd never know. The sign guy is also a sledder, so maybe that helped.
It's the luxury solo touring sled of it's day. I bought one new in 86. Pretty much the same sled, only the 86 had no reverse. They had the 440 liquid, and it was a bit thirsty, but went pretty good. Very similar sled to the El tigre 5000.
The Wildcat 650 had an new engine from Suzuki. It was called the proper lake-racer. It outran everything, and it was world's fastest snowmobile of the year 1988.
It loves gasoline, and very much of it. And some could get troubled with the variator.
I have compiled a YouTube playlist (see link below) with all of the 'Action Videos' that Arctic Cat released from 1989 to 2015. The only one's I'm missing are 1990 and 2013.
These are the consumer VHS tapes and DVD's that came out each year that featured the respective models of snowmobiles...
