I know that everyone is working on getting sleds ready for the upcoming season. So I think that we should have a place to share what we did. small or big. Pics are a great addition to what you did to you sled today.


This past weekend I pulled my Rear suspension out and found that my front shock tore a steel braided hose. I then went ahead and cleaned and started painting my rails since I now have to wait for my shock that went down the street to daycore. I also helped my dad a little on his motor Rebuild For his 2001 SnoPro Crosscountry. What did you do to your sled Today?

Line that broke

Installed hood screens. Also started working on crossfire skid, but before doing that had to put 8 tooth drivers on because I'm running studs. I had a couple reverse kits so decided to install reverse. Turns out the 95 exhaust system doesn't allow enough clearance for reverse so I had a 96 exhaust system which sits forward about 2 more inches allowing room for the reverse linkage and chain adjuster so I installed that. Still waiting on a snow flap and rear bumper from a 2012 so I can build a tunnel extension. Hope to have it done before the snow gets here.

Did quite a bit this summer, sawpped motors, installed a 136, new studs, new hoods,windshields, etc.
My list is getting smaller.
On the 98: install green skis, and tidy up wiring on the new hood,clean and paint pipes, thats about it.
On the 2000: Wire for heated shield,install a few more studs ( stripped a couple during install). And clean & paint pipes ...unless i find new ones.
Pretty much ready for snowCat happy

I pulled my rear skid all apart in my 99 ZRT6, replaced a couple idler bearings, changed my driveshaft bearings, and changed tracks. She's greased and ready to rip!
Im pretty much doing the same With my SnoPro

Did this last year: http://www.arcticchat.com/forum/pinned-topic-area/300595-crossfire-skid-into-96-zrt.html

and only got like 81 miles on it. Couldn't even dial in the suspension with one trip on it.

Did a project 800 and a 600 along the way over the summer:

Now I am scheming a Bear Cat secondary on Mr. T.
Don't you need the Primary as well for the gains?

I have read that over and over. Short answer, no. Just the Bear Cat secondary. Need another belt because of length and some other stuff. When I get everything together I will start playing. Still have to shim out a new to me used primary with 200 miles on it.

I was always under the assumption that the angles of the sheaves and the over all diameter of the system is where you got your gains. maybe Im wrong. :wacko: (probably LOL)

There is quite a bit more to it than that. Just to mention a few things: The inside circumference is larger on the Bear Cat secondary. The outer diameter is larger too both reasons for requiring a longer belt. The primary can be kept the same component wise just lengthen the center to center add a longer belt, shim the primary, add some more teeth on the top gear in the chain case and it should be closer to getting what I want. As stated before, lots to it. Just like playing around with stuff. Nothing ventured, nothing gained!! I have read a lot of in accurate posts on how people have not got it right. But hey, if you like to play and research it and know and talk to the right people it can become fun.

see I have only heard so much and Have no idea about the big bores. I know that on the small bore (440,500,600) the best gain is when both are used. Just knew that there were gains to be had. Never really got into detail of how.
