ouch! . . . . i use to have ATV's that i rode in the winter. Took my 250 Tecate' over to a friends and while i was there i had to mix some fuel for it (this was before i trusted oil injection) My buddy tossed me a bottle of two stroke i dumped it in the jug and filled the bike. Made it about a mile before i came to a grinding hault. Turned my buddy had been bleeding the brakes in his truck and was using an empty bottle to catch fluid. You guessed it . . . . he was using an old two stroke oil bottle . . . . the same one he tossed me thinking it was oil. Had similar results as above . . . .

nope, we're doing some mods to the current one. Needs more studs and we have to fab some kind of rollbar/arch, DNR said if we put one on it they would treat it as an ATV and we wouldnt need helmets (most of our cruising with that thing is below 20mph but i am truely a believer in helmets) Should be at the Devils Lake tip up town again this year. I will put an OSO sticker on it so we are easy to spot in a crowd


Wish i could figure a way to get some more power out of that old girl.

A light hone and a new slug and it'll be good as new. Gotta love them sled motors. Must have sounded like the world came to an end when it let go.

NOT MANY GOOD PARTS LEFT

That sucks man, hope you get it fixed before the season ends. There is a site that I use and maybe you can find it helpful also to find parts. go to www.hardcoresledder.com good luck!
