  1. E-tec 2 reliability and Gen 4

    Owner/rider oblivious to the fact that engines need oil ? Maybe heard the reports that the new engine "runs forever" on little oil ? Dealer never filled the tank full in the first place ?
  2. How bad did the weather hurt your area ??

    And if you bought a new Yamaha, YOU would have a Cat.
  3. How bad did the weather hurt your area ??

    You got that right. With the people with DEEP POCKETS buying the newest, fasted, most high tech sled every year, the used stuff is all over. Some real good, some previously blown up. You take your chances in trying to determine this. Not even sure if buying from a dealer helps, especially the fly by night car dealers with the sled tent in the back. But if you have half a brain and can run a wrench, you totally dis-assemble it, and put it back together replacing all the questionable things and in the end, you have a real reliable sled. And you did not pay any labor to do it. BP
  4. Quebec Weekend January 20th

    I can tell you that in Quebec north of Amos, we were stopped, and checked for mirrors. The one that did not have one was admonished but was not fined. BP
  5. Snowmobiles to the Rescue

  6. Abitibi Canyon

    If you intend to end the day back at Cochrane, then first go to Smoothrock and gas up, The go up the west side and play in the canyon for a while (but don't get hurt), then gas up at $3/liter and go down the east side. My T-Cat can do the east side so any sled can do it. BP
  7. Dubreuilville to Halfway Haven to Timmins

    That moose head is XTC500's avitar. The old trail through Missanabie was very slow with rocks and stumps. Never done the longer route. BP
  8. Worth the drive to Sudbury

    According to the ITG, trail D111 and C are still not open to the Moonlight or Chateu Guay. There are a few miles there in red. I need this open too in Feb. BP
  9. New 2018 yamaha ltx dx!

    XTC500, You have had a history of pretty red sleds.
  10. Food in Hornepayne

    I ate at Cindy's once in my life last winter. The chips were dark brown and black and appeared to be cooked in old motor oil. What a bad first impression. BP
  11. How bad did the weather hurt your area ??

    I am pretty confident that the 158 km I have ridden so far in D5 is it. It would be much more if not for the DOO DESS failure that destroyed the Saturday ride and the un-preparedness of another buddy on Sunday that wasted the morning. I don't understand how people can not be ready to go when there were months to prepare. I guess I need the balls to ride alone. BP
  12. Looking for ideas... Rigging a new trailer

    I think your D rings should be behind the sled on each side. You need something more substantial than that Super Clamp to hold the sleds back in case you end up in the ditch. If not, everything will be piled up at the front of the trailer and the front skin will be damaged. Ratchet straps at the rear going out at 30 deg angle on each side to hold back and control side movement. BP
  13. Looking for ideas... Rigging a new trailer

    Make sure those D rings have an aluminum backing plate under the floor and they are bolted through with nuts. Wood screws will pull out. BP
  14. Saddle Bag Tour

  15. Saddle Bag Tour

    L155 is mostly straight roads out in the open. Only rode it once and that was last winter. Very fast run. Be ready for the 90 deg turns. BP
