    Quailipieces rollerskis and loctite-need help

    I received the same reception on my last purchase. I can't figure out what Kimpex is thinking. They buy Rouski, a seemingly well-run company and then decimate product availability and exude a poor attitude towards customer service. Kind of liking buying a successful restaurant and immediately changing the menu.
  5. Found a good video if you are installing the Qualipieces roller skiis on a skidoo Pilot TS ski.... It is in French, but very easy to understand. Be careful when replacing the carbides - it is easy to switch the ends around so that the tapered edge is backward - wrong. Luckily I lucked out with this as checked afterward and got a break! Went with the Qualipieces product this time around - the Rouski people didn't have product available and weren't very forthcoming as to when it would be available if ever. Might have to make a 'looped' tool to operate the Qualipieces to avoid having boots wear out or bending over too much - not a big deal. Thanks to above posters for the locktite info and made sure lots of grease on axle through spindle.

    OPINIONS ON A 2017 ARCTIC CAT ZR 5000 LXR

    How fast do you want to go ? I got 149 kph @ 8450 rpm out of my 2015 XF7000 LXR 137. I just bought a 2017 ZR7000 137 for my son. It will be slow compared to the T-Cat but it will reel him in a bit.

    So, did you buy it? I bought one in fall of 2017. I've used two seasons and love it. My friends who've taken it for a run also love it.

    Ski door recall.

    It's a bit more involved than that. It has to do with the retaining plate that holds the high pressure lines onto the E-tec injector, those 2 connections, and the one at the ECM fuel hose, on the bottom. They came out with a temporary fix, but no parts available at end of season. I got a good blast of chit after giving my opinion on the topic when it came out, and you all know what happens when I give my opinion. So the temporary fix is out now, like it matters at this point ... the proper solution will come in July after they've researched all options and make a decision on what to do exactly. So if you get a recall notice, wait until September or October before getting all horny to bring your sled to the dealership.

  20. 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!
  21. I was pulling a 19’ Triton with a 6,000lbs gvwr with a Ford F-150. I went to scales and asked if I required a yellow sticker. I live in Milton and passed the scales every time I towed trailer. They told me yes and that they could ticket me with empty trailer. So I sticker both knowing how many times I passed scale house and mto officers watching for infractions. i was also told in the past that you technically must license your tow vehicle for the combined weight of the truck and trailer. So any truck towing a trailer could be over weight if registered at the 2,990kgs for cheapest plates on the truck. More mud for your discussion.
  22. It does and it's a testament to how unclear the law is. If you can tow a 15,000lb fifth wheel with a one ton truck and not need yellow stickers why should you need to towing a tandem axle sled trailer? Oh and if your towing that same trailer with a suburban you don't need yellow stickers ridiculous

    MTO Annual safety inspections for trucks and trailers

    Your statements are correct but with regard to the yellow safety sticker requirement, they only speak about actual weight as you mentioned and if loaded, they have to include the loaded weights. The MTO uses more than your example calculation to determine if you require yellow safety stickers. If the manufacturer's GVWR of the truck + the manufacturer's GVWR rating of the trailer you mentioned total over 4,500 kg. then both require yellow stickers. Below is a simplified explanation for yellow safety requirements that was previously posted in another thread:
  24. taking in consideration that the towing vehicle is NOT commercial and registered for under 4500kg, it is not that simple, if the towed trailer is under 2800kg (actual weight) regardless of 1 or 2 axles it does not get added on to the truck weight, and you do not have to register the truck to account for this weight. if you have a trailer that is over 2800 kg (actual weight) you would have to add the trailer weight to the actual weight of the truck, which in this case it would most likely put you over 4500lbs would require a sticker. http://www.mto.gov.on.ca/english/trucks/commercial-vehicle-faq.shtml There are no laws as far as i am aware that would force you to get a sticker for a 2 axle trailer if you can fall within the above weights. i am not saying that you may not need one...if you are pulling ANY trailer with a stickered truck you need to have a sticker on the trailer regardless, even if it is your 12' aluminum boat. seems to be some misleading and wrong information about towing on this forum. I would suggest if anyone is still feeling overwhelmed with the information, stop in at a weigh scale and ask the mto directly and get the proper information directly from the inspectors. If i remember right, EVERY year this subject gets brought up and some of the same information is circulated again and again........
  25. I agree with SJ Cube van is stickered on its own so obviously the trailer needs sticker since you use a total GVWR Another idea is to use a SUV , Yukon, Suburban. Expedition etc and leave the seats in ( so it's not considered commercial) and everything is exempt from annual safeties. Go figure ............
  26. yes that is true but very very very sadly this combination needs yellow stickers too, 1/2 ton chev 1500 silverado GVWR 7200 lbs plus a single axle hybrid prostar sled trailer with a GVWR 2990 Total is 10190 lbs or 4622 kg, over by 122 kg Sad but the numbers don't lie.
  27. Too confusing! I'll just stick to putting the sled in the back of my vehicle.!
  28. PISTON LAKE CRUISER

    MTO Annual safety inspections for trucks and trailers

    I believe they look at both the total combined weight and the GVWR totals and if you are over on either one you get a ticket.
  29. But the cube van probably was already over the 4500 Kg. I believe if you tow a trailer with a vehicle of lesser weight that is yellow stickered, then the combined weight comes into play. If the GVWR of a vehicle is 3000 Kg, then as long as the combined weight is under 4500 Kg then the trailer does not need a sticker, even if the truck has one. I think that is the point mike37 was trying to make. Part of the confusion is when do you use actual weight (if running empty) or the GVWR of the trailer.
