    20210220_204321.jpg 20210206_135618.jpg Let's see those high mileage winders and what has been done to them.
    I have a 2018 that has had a 280 precision efi tune since 3k miles. Currently at 10,000 miles. Major repairs:
    Bulkhead, front heat exchanger, and driveshaft @ 7500 miles under yes warranty.
    New track @7500 miles.
    Upper gear @ 3k miles.
    Plenty of other upgrades and basic maintenance along the way. 20210220_204321.jpg

    I now have 15,000kms on my 2019 Cross Crountry 9000. Tuned since 3000kms with MAXSpool16. Three top gear changes (I change preventatively every 4000-5000kms), BOP Driveshaft saver since 1400kms with no spinning on shaft. New chain, gears, new track, all new bearings everywhere at 1000okms (all chaincase/shafts). Rebuilt all shocks twice. Clutch was grooving and replaced under warranty at 4500kms, new one is fine, no cracks has Dalton weights.

    Super reliable 270hp, gas and go!

    New drive shaft, new track, new crank sensor, oil tank seal replaced TWICE, damn that ROV!!! 2 top gears, new chain, new turbo force muffler, rollers in both clutches, bushings in secondary and helix. Tuned from day one. Eco trail for 3k. Powertrail the rest of the way. 22/41 gears. Still on stock clutches with Thunder heavy hitters and 911. Still pulls like a beast!! What a great motor YAMAHA!! Best snowmobile motor ever built. I’m probably forgetting something else I replaced! Lol. Yup new fuel pump. Fuel return line rerouted also!
