Hey Lomax, hell yea, I'll take it. PM inbound...

Burque - it's got a shade under 27,000 miles on it and I paid $650 for it... not sure I got a stellar deal but for what I wanted, it was in the ballpark. I probably could have gotten it a little cheaper but the seller was a AFA grad who's getting married and felt that his MC days were done. I didn't want to add insult to injury...

Fixed some poor oil-line routing from the factory...


Way to go Polaris, torque that lock nut on there hard enough that trying to loosen it with a socket bends the tab.


Muffpot... check.
Put a constant-tension clamp from McMaster on there, shouldn't come loose as the pipe expands/contracts with heat.


Align-y the skis...


Plumb the exhaust valve solenoid to puke OUTSIDE the sled instead of all over the engine...



Let it snow already.

I think I need to figure out how to make one of those muffpots work behind the rear cylinder of the 950

1400 miles I think. I haven't looked at the odo since I brought it home. Paid $3800 for it, seems about going rate here. And the PO had just put a new Scotts dampener on it.

Pretty sure there are already holes to for drainage in the rear swing arm. There's a big rubber plug back there somewhere. Can't miss it.

Thanks Rob. If it's the one I'm thinking of, the big plastic plug is put in at the factory. A common mod is to drill two small holes on the bottom of the swingarm, at the very back of the hollow section to drain any water that gets past the factory openings.

Just take the rear wheel adjusters and apply anti-sieze compound to the threads -

Fail! Think of this next time you sneeze in a full faced helmet:

Dear Abbey

My right front turn signal bulb blew. I pulled it and put in a new bulb, bulb turns on - doesn't flash. Left signal flashes. Swap left and right bulbs, right flashes, left no flashy. The way I understand things the flasher is single sided and is normally closed when cold and opens when it heats up from resistance. The old bulb and the old one that is still good are stamped 23 watts on the base, my problem is the biggest one I can find is 4 watts. I have been to two bike shops and 3 auto part stores Is there anyway to make the smaller bulb pull more juice or do I have to take the faring apart and try another flasher? These are the little push and turn bulbs about 1/4 to 5/16 in diameter.

Signed
