It just so happens I did something EXTREMELY out of character for me. I actually took my XF-7 back to the dealer this past thursday to get the oil pump adjusted. The first real ride I made with the sled last week was 229 miles on thursday. The oil pump SUCKED 74 oz of oil on that 1 day ride. I was having FLASHBACKS of my uncles 74 YAMAHA GP 433, and my long list of OIL GUZZLING sleds, ie; 79 srx; 83 vmax; 84vmax; 87 exciter; ect; ect; Bottomline is Arctic Cat's 21st century technology is NO better than Yamaha's vintage 70's & 80's technology. The 4-stroke haters can say what they will....But over the course of thousands of miles the savings just in oil are in the hundreds of dollars. Do the math.
BTW... The dealer did the pump adjustment while I waited. (only 1 turn out) slaphappy Im sure i'll be back there again after the next ride.
