brp360: @spuds355 1.25" is as big as you can go stock, thats what mine is, I asked the dealship
93timberwolf: nice video i got a 98 formula z with a mach 1 700 triple motor but my sled is not purple like the other ones
Ravioli427: Sounds nice, same pipe I want to get mine.Wouldn't happen to know what the cylinder head torque is on that motor do you? I have a 98 and I need to put the head back on but I don't have a book and can't locate them anywhere.
brp360: @spuds355 might be getting to much fuel... plugs gapped wrong? are you putting along slow or keeping it cleaned out by winding it up here and there?
brp360: @badboysracing 1500-1750rpm, i prefer a higher idle, like 1850rpm seems to help with fouled spark plugs, also on those warm days when mine tends to idle low it isnt as bad
badboysracing: ive got the same sled, 1998 but mine has a 1999 engine. do you know what the idle should be at?
kevin stoya: 1 got the same one but 97 i think
rougespartan33: my has gotten real bad you start it up and it would registur on the tacomiter and found out it was the gas
brp360: and if you dont hear the idle come up right away, turn them back to where they were... happy sledding!
brp360: mine runs around 1600-1800 at idle, until its been ridden and is hot, where it usually idles around 1300-1400... which seems to be the case with every sled I've ever had. I know it gets annoying when the headlight is almost gone out at idle lol. There are small screws on the sides of the carbs, I think they're on the clutch side, not the exhaust side. Try turning them a quarter turn out (lefty-loosy) which you should hear the idle come up... just make sure you turn them all the same amount!
beaverdammer: friggin sweet sled! bad ass!
brp360: All that weight of the front end shifts to the track and guess what... she goes like snot!
brp360: By studlike I mean the track has "finger-like" paddles. Instead of flat paddles the lugs are like cones. It rides like it has picks, plus in deep snow it still grips awesome. Tracks spins like hell??? doesnt sound like a problem to me... haha sounds like a good thing! If ya need more bite either the taller lug track will help for sure, or adjust your limiter strap at the front of the track. I loosened mine way off, which allows the weight to shift and the front end comes way up.
brp360: it fit no problems, and its never hit the tunnel once. the guy at royal distributing looked in his little book and said thats the tallest lug you can go tho. my track is the predator "stud-like" not the paddle. it hooks up like it has studs and pulls like a bastard. I'd buy this track again in a second
skidooracin: not the best motor hence the recall on the plastic caged crank bearings. when you shut it down and you hear the ball rolling around that means junk!!!
ryanwelsh2132: i had a 97 and the only problem was that it was o top heavy that it would not go round corners very well
but they are still the best sleds
kodiak: Nice machine! The 700 triple(triple pipe)is the best machine bombardier has made in the last 15yrs. I had a 1997 Mach 1...nobody could touch me. Only bug it had was the primary clutch would overheat so I made holes in my belt guard...problem solved.
brp360: more action videos will follow as soon as the snow flies!
