We're still getting plowed out down here. Work closed at 5pm yesterday, and I was helping shovel out other employee's cars for a half hour after my shift ended. The drift in front of my garage when I got home was around 3' tall :lol:

Oh snap! How's the jug look? At least a sled is pretty simple to work on ;)

Looks similar to mine last year. 120mph @8500 rpm when it ran too lean in one cylinder... 75 dollars later it was up and running again with a used jug and piston

Yeah blew her up in about 6 feet of powder, she was digging to get out all i heard was a pop and some metal. Shut it down and that was it. Like Dan said I just need a new jug and piston. I'm also going to do new bearings and seals. Unfortunately the jug and pistons a little more then 75 bucks. All said and done it will be about 700 bucks, I'm kinda thinking about selling it after we fix it. Bought it for 4500.00+700.00=5200.00 the sleds worth 6800.00 So I may sell it and make a few bucks.

Ryan, have you determined what the cause was? That sled was stock, wasn't it? Glad to hear you think you can still come out ahead on it. I won't with mine. You gotta pay to play I guess, haha.

Finally got mine together and went for a short ride tonight. Found some decent drifts to play around in. Freezing rain freezing to the helmet made it impossible to really go anywhere though.

Here she is after we got back.

Yeah the sled should be up and running in 3 weeks. Luckily I have another sled so I'm not missing out on this great snow! What kind of C&A's do you have on there? I have a set on my 03 500 XC SP I love them.

Once my sleds running again we will have to go out sometime. We could have invited Flip but he sold his damn sled!!

Hey now, if you wouldn't have blown up your new sled you could have let me used your old one.

I'm not sure actually, haha. They were on the sled when I bought it. I really like them as well. The front of the sled feels nice and light and I'm sure those skis are a contributing factor to that. :D

Yea we definitely should. If you want to head my way, I can get on the trails right from my house. Otherwise, I can get the old man out and throw the sleds on his trailer and go wherever.

Get that [email protected]%t fixed meng!! Lets go!! :Headbang:
