On the belt guard or the air silencer are places where I'm used to find them, but I simply CAN NOT find them on my recently bought sled. Well, I'll just buy a couple and put them in the toolkit.

Arctic Cat was kinda cheap and didn't mount a spark plug holder on the Firecats.[/b]
they were trying to save weight

Save weight?! A plastic holder for two spark plugs would weigh almost anything.[/b]
i would guess its more of a money thing,
kinda like the auto manufactures not putting a spair tire in some trucks nowdays.

i think the first year CAT made 16 or 17 thousand F-cats.
if they made that many every year since??,........
they might have saved about $1:00 or $2:00 on each one,..
not including the labor to install each one.

major savings at the end of the production.

not a big deal but i dont know why you guys would stick up for arctic cat for being a cheep ass, i know i would paid the extra 5 bucks for a damn spark plug holder, and a tool kit. So even though it ends up saving them allot of money in the long run, they could also stop puttin a windshield on and save allot of money and you still wouldnt care then or what?! ...

with the weight reduction they had that chassis built around, there were few viable logistical locations for a plug holder, the clutch cover in most cases following a severe belt explosion is so twisted that it breaks and chunks the plastic holder pieces everywhere, not to mention what happens when a plug meets primary at high r's

I just keep my extra plugs in my coat or in the back storage area. But putting the holder on the clutch guard wouldnt be a bad idea either.

I placed my spark plugs inside the spare belt. Just squeeze them in, but you may need to adjust the belt a little to get them in, but it works.

No fuel shut off valves in the F Cats either. I still don't understand that....

you dont need them on a case reed engine. Your noting going to flood you engine by trailering or rolling the sled if its off like the 96 and later models
