John, I would love to get a snowmobile, but isnt it a pain in the ass to trailer them 3 hours to use them? How often do you go?

That's a pretty impressive speed on that Mach but you gotta turn sometime ! What's it like thru trashed trails ?

3 hours of trailering to ride ? Sure it sucks but the fun factor/adrenaline rush is worth it. Actually more so than the boat thing. How long have you left your boat WFO ?
I was riding with Rambuntious and Waterfoul a few weeks ago and Ram. held his sled WFO for something like 18 miles !

Yeah, the general concensus around here is that my primary isn't back shifting the way it should. First thing I'm going to look at is the main spring. Then the wieghts and rollers.

I kinda want to ride this weekend somewhere.... but can't really ride till I get this clutch thing worked out... and my Yamaha clutch guy is in the UP until Sunday!! AGGGHH!!!

Foul,

I have been known to know my way around Yammi's from time to time. What's the problem? Maybe I can help. Seriously, I know 'em like the back of my hand. Check your PM for my number. Call if you need help.
