  1. E-tec 2 reliability and Gen 4

    The Cat 600 c-tec has a great reputation for longevity so far. And that is pretty normal for oil consumption. I believe O figured mine out to something like 70 or 80:1 fuel/oil ratio.
  2. I think I’ve been converted...

    I would agree. Many older sleds will corner better than the new equipment. The old zr440/570's would hardly even lift a ski while cornering, no matter how hard it bit in. For corners, lower is faster. But I still prefer the ride of the newer stuff.
  3. I think I’ve been converted...

    I would think you would need to compare it to a new Cat 800 to be a fair comparison though. Of course the Viper was heavier in the twisties. There is an extra 40lb over the skis. Glad to hear you like the sled. Cousin went from Cat 800's to the 850. Thought it was great until the engine blew. Not sure if he stayed with it or went back green.
  4. Lets talk suspensions & track length !..120-129-137 or ?

    So then get 2 exact same model sleds with same rear suspension and shock setup, one shorty and 1 136 or longer and verify that. Guesses are that the difference will be imperceptible.
  5. Lets talk suspensions & track length !..120-129-137 or ?

    I have a 129in zr6000 and my brother has a Crosstalk 600 which is 137in and swapping back and forth you cannot tell any ride difference through the bumps. Steering on the other hand is different, more so due to his 1.6in lug to my 1.25in.

    Obviously it was not his group. Regardless, when a group of sleds stops on the trail and takes up all but a small sliver of it, especially when it is 16ft wide, they should be called on it. And that is what someone in the group who we came across had done, with the lead sled being an older Polaris with some bull horns mounted on the front bumper.

    If he was in Pembroke yesterday I saw his group too. Took up a lot of space stopping on the rail trail, leaving just enough space to barely get by.
  9. Trail length

    Or biggest trip was Thedford (between London and Sarnia) to Kapuskasing. We were in Kap. just after lunch on the 4th day. Just short of 1000miles. An uncle had a cabin in Moonbeam, and we did a few runs back and forth up there at nearly wide open paces. Missed a lot of scenery when you are just trying to count miles. Can't ride at those paces nowadays. Well, "Might" be able to, just don't want to.
  10. Lindsay area parking/staging?

    My thoughts exactly. Would rather not leave it on the side of the road.
  11. Lindsay area parking/staging?

    Three of us are trailering up tomorrow (1 truck and trailer), and are looking for a place to drop and leave the truck for a couple of days? We will not be spending the night, as we will be riding north from there, so a hotel lot is not feasible. An suggestions? Thanks in advance.
  12. Trail length

    Hey, I said from what I remember.LOL. And that was at least 12-14yrs ago, when the guys I was riding with and myself were on ZRT800's, and we usually did just tape the throttle to the bar up there.
  13. Trail length

    From what I remember about that ride, about 2 hrs from Cochrane to Kap easily. I think we had done from Cochrane to Hearst and back in about 6 hrs, including a lunch stop.
  14. Arctic Cat Sold

    Well, Textron has powered some Polaris sleds as recently as 2011, so they have had their hand in the snowmobile pot. The 4 stroke Polaris' used motors from a company owned by Textron, Weber.
