    LF Looking for RH control arms for my Nytro

    Thanks. I saw his ads, he has "no time to ship"...
  2. 2009 and up, right hand, upper and lower. Not MTX. Let me know if you have 'em, or know where to get them! If I come up empty, I'm going with aftermarket. Thanks!

    Venture Lite / Phazer Reverse

    My Apex and Nytro are sticky at times. It's a mechanical reverse. It won't come out of gear under load, just like any manual transmission. Is there a linkage adjustment on the Phazer?

    MTO Annual safety inspections for trucks and trailers

    If I choose to tow my 2 sleds in a brand new tandem axle with brakes, heavy duty enclosed cargo trailer, I need inspections on both truck and trailer. If I buy the equivalent of a flimsy coke can on a single axle with 12" wheels and no brakes, I don't need an inspection. For either device. If safety is the supposed goal here, somebody F'ed up. I understand why a commercial situation needs inspecting. I see rolling wrecks every day in my travels. Small business is taxed so hard these days it's a wonder why anyone continues, ASSuming they can run it sustainably, AND maintain their equipment. I also know the "buy a sticker" business is thriving. From personal experience.

    MTO Annual safety inspections for trucks and trailers

    I too find it irritating that I can haul my tandem 16' enclosed cargo trailer with my 32' A class RV legally, with NO TRAILER BRAKES, (RVs are typically seriously brake limited, in my opinion...) no stickers, no inspections. But not legal with my F-150 4wd, with brake controller, and IMHO a vastly safer and more capable vehicle combination. I've LONG since given up hoping anything government pencil pushers make up will have any correlation to reality, but this is pushing it.

    Yamaha 8DN belts

  7. Again, NOT mine... Just a relatively rare find around here. I doubt you'd ever find another that hasn't been on a winter road! https://www.kijiji.ca/v-cargo-utility-trailer/ottawa/atc-northstar-18-6-x-8-enclosed-atv-snowmobile-t/1427859139?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true

    I should have used the sarcasm emoticon. .

    Idgit Tire Kickers

    Kijidiots. If I had $1 for every trade offer of a remote controlled toy, or X-box or clapped out street bike I got, I could retire. This is after I clearly state that I'm not interested in trades, or offers, and that my price is FIRM, and delivery is not possible. I once agreed to deliver something, after a sob story, and the Kijidiot decided this was a good time to negotiate the price. Since I was already there.

    OFSC survey

    Voluntary compliance? Honour system? No government investment? Sounds sustainable.

    OFSC survey

    I firmly believe that if we have to license, (Govt/MTO) insure, (govt enforced, TAXED and legislated) and have an MTO issued pass, we are entitled to law and compliance enforcement just the same as any other regulated motor vehicle.

    Royal D new website

    It appears to me that the inventory has been drastically reduced, or that that is the plan moving forward. Or maybe it's just "under construction".

    OFSC survey

    I'd get behind any plan that involved actually checking permits. Haven't been asked in 2+ years.

    OVR/CPR Rail Trail

    We need to get Doug on a sled. I bet he'd fit right in with some of the live-wire characters I've met recently. (Names omitted to protect the innocent)

    Snow tracker carbides

    Aggressive on a 136" Apex, 2nd set, very happy.
