    Sidewinder trail tank

    I also had a Trail Tank on my Nytro. I installed a 1.8 gallon RotoPax in my soft tunnel bag. Made a simple bracket out of 1" x 1/4" aluminum flat stock. Attached it to the tunnel with 2 bolts and tapped the bar for the fuel bracket. I also have the saddle bags for overnight trips...

    Last trip of the season for me.

    Went to RDL, on the Gaspe Peninsula, rode Sunday thru Tuesday. Trails were great, each day got thinner around town and hotel. Got 660 miles in 3 days. I could not have done the trip without ice scratchers. Trails hard in the morning, then soft but thin over base. We trailered to St. Raymond...

    Secondary clutch bushing failure

    I did the same. Pressed in new bushing, put some loctite retainer on both sides, peened both sides. We got 14 inches of snow here in Eastern Long Island. Rode about 20 miles on ice roads....not a good testing location. Held up, my Son took a rip and got it up to 100 mph. Can't hold my breath...

    Vibration in feet

    My stub shaft did not cause a vibration. But when the bushing on the secondary slid towards the bearing, lot of vibration, and the clutches were cooking hot. Like riding a cement mixer..... Flat spotted one roller.

    Secondary clutch bushing failure

    Yea seems it doesn't end... My helix bushing took a beating also, time to order more parts. It got real loud when the clutch started to open past 30 plus mph. And I was babying the sled to break in a new belt. Guess that saved a lot more damage. I need to order more rollers, and at least a new...

    I need help SW down again losing coolant 550 miles - *FIXED* fingers crossed

    I had a similar incident with my 05 Warrior....old post. Engine burned up on the trail. Yamaha told dealer to tear the motor down and they would fly a rep out to look at it. (blah, blah, blah) I called Yamaha, kept my cool, got a young lady that was in charge of my case. I explained the...

    Check Your Rivets

    Thought I was almost done going over the sled after the last trip..... Damn, the tail light was moving around. Rivets on the back of the tunnel extension and tail light rivets all loose. Also the rivets that hold the snow flap are loose. Started drilling them out and replacing them. These are...

    Living The Dream!

    It sure is, what a blast. We went down the Clairmont Express to the Hotel Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu Casino for lunch. Trail was the best I have ever seen it, fast and flat, "Winder Heaven". 125 miles from the hotel, most of it high speed cruising. :4STroke: :-o
