My 800XF seems to backfire a lot. Does anyone else have this issue and what did/are you doing about it? I have tried to let it idle down before shutting the sled off, but that doesn't work for me!

Make sure and watch for flames! Mine and my brothers Xfire 800 actually caught on fire. It blew flames out the exhaust for a long enough period of time where it ignited the bellypan plastic. Got to be quick with the handfuls of snow. The worst part about the flameage was that I did not know it was burning, it was silent. Two guys sitting across the intersection in the trail about 40 feet away started pointing and shouting, FIRE! Sweet eh!

Came across what was left of a Crossfire, I think as not much was left, that burn down on the side of the trail just south of Munising/Christmas MI on trail 7. It wasn't a pretty site. About the only thing that was left was the steel peices of the sled. You can just make out the exhaust can in the top of the one pic. Asked a couple of locals, but nobody seemed to know anything about it.

Yes, it was a rental from Munising Pro Sports. Talking to John last weekend and said that he lost one. If your in the area stop in, John and Bille Jo are great people, they will tell you all about it. Their prices are pretty reasonable too. The pile of rubble is/was setting next to his dumpster behind the shop. It was the owner of Foggy's that was the operator. He was not injured in the whole ordeal. Good to hear.
