Perry, I bought one of those new in 90. Very dependable sled, loved the 530. Kept it 3 years, 13,000 miles, and never broke anything. I know it's kind of out-dated now, but that's one of the sleds I miss the most. :beer_cheers:
I'm new here, but this is My 90 Prowler.
She's only failed Me once, and that was My own fault.
Since these were taken, I've added 3-1/2" Rox Riser's, and Powermadd handgaurd's
I'm presently looking into upgrading to a 97 ZL440 Fast Track skid.
With the riser's, handguard's, and a 98 ZR500 TSL skid I got on EBay for $124.50.
took 3 1/2 hr's to install the skid.
Next summer I'm planning on putting a 580 in the engine bay!
Also planning on reworking the front suspension next summer.
New Kimpex Shotgun track 15x121x1 1/4, Kimpex plastic ski's w/stainless saddle's, 9" StudBoy's Duelly's.
Put in some 15 1/2" Fox Shock's to level the ride, and increase front travel.
And a whole bunch of other little stuff, just to freshen it up.
Still no 580, presently looking into a trade for a 650 Wildcat motor, but even if that come's through it won't be installed until next summer.
:cabinsno: I NEED SNOW!
I have a 1990 also. I like what you've done. Did you move the windshield down and the gauges also..? How did you do this? I want to mod mine in a similar way, without the risers. I thought I may have to go to a totally different hood, dash, windshield, and headlight...like a 93 EXT or Pantera. Do you have any ideas you want to share..?
This is my 90 wildcat restoration not the stock graphics for 90 I just liked these better I spent last summer bringing it back to life. My first restoration is the 88 El Tigre listed in this forum. I am also working on an 81 6000, 90 El Tigre EXT and I have an 86 VMax almost done. My goal is to restore all the vintage muscle sleds of the 80s .
My 90 EXT is about half done I’m looking for a set of the reservoir shocks that came with the upgraded model anyone who may have a resource where I could find a used set let me know I’m having a hard time finding them. This summer I added a hood scoop and low windshield. I love this sled its old school but a blast to ride! Rockerdude
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...
I have a 69 Panther won’t run full throttle idles perfect, just rebuilt the HD13 A Tillotson but same problem, floods out and gas comes out the carb unless i restrict fuel flow?? The motor is a P19j ??? Any ideas
