OK, I have a 1995 ZR 700. I just bought this sled about a month ago. I LOVE this sled and have had as much fun as there was winter left on it. I just have a few questions and I figured maybe you guys coudl help.

1. One of the clamps on the bumper around the fron has let go of the body. From what I can see, to fix this one most remove the plastic center out of the entire bumper to get at it. My question is is this so, and if so how does one go about removing and replacing that center strip? I thought maybe a heat gun would do it but frankly it looks like it is VERY hard to do.

2. How much antifreeze should be in the reservoir when it is cold and what type of antifreez shoudl be used. What is the mix if i have to mix it myself.

3. The sled has dial a jets on it and i was wondering if anyone knows of any place where i can get information on them as to how to set and adjust them.

4. Is it worth it to get the seat recovered or is it just as effective to buy a seat cover straight from arctic cat?

5. Woudl this sled be a good candidate for a 2 up seat? If so should I go with a aftermarket attached 2 up or is there an interchangable 2 up seat from a different cat of that year.

6. For some reason the fuel will drain back on the carbs if it sits very long and takes MANY pulls to start if this happens. If i turn off the fuel this will not happen and is no longer an issue. My question here is why woudl this be happening?

Hows that for a first post? I am new to this. My last sled was a 77 panther. I never had to work on it much because it just NEVER died. It was awesome. But when this sled came along it was to good a deal to pass up. Now I just have to learn how to get her tuned up and learn more about my machine. I tell ya, it sure rides smoother than my old 77. I can only imagine what the new sleds ride like. I know this one thing for sure, I AM ADDICTED!!!!

Thanks for any help you can give me here.

That is an interesting thought on the fuel. I suppose the air in the line could come from the engine aswell. I thought I had it solved when i fixed the fuel line leak, but it still did it. I am thinking about pulling the carbs off this off season and cleaning them out completely. Woudl it be wise to switch to EFI on this sled?
