    Karyon bogan

    https://www.karyon.ca/karyon-xtreme-toboggan/ Has anyone ever used one of these? I'm thinking about buying one to use for hauling lumber (cabin build), ice fishing stuff, etc, and wondering if it is any good? I would use it primarily on lakes and a little bit of trail use.

    Slow down my sled!

    I guess I should have explained this better. Without disengaging the throttle and clutch the sled runs this fast. Yes, I can blip the throttle on and off and run the sled at 5 km/h, but I dont think its ideal to run the sled like this for an extended period of time. I have had lots of sleds...

    Slow down my sled!

    I have a 2019 Backcountry 600. This may seem strange but I want to slow it down, or decrease the minimum speed. Reason for this is for riding with my kids and really tight bush riding. If I recall correctly from last season it runs around 30-40 km/h at a minimum. To slow this down should I gear...

    Octane for Etec

    Thanks for the replies so far. Its interesting my 2011 600 Etec has been exclusively on regular with no issues ever, but I am guessing there are differences between the old and new ones.

    Octane for Etec

    I've got a 2019 Backcountry 600. I always ride from home and I can easily access a card lock with regular gas but no premium available. I'm wondering if this is a problem to use regular? Who runs regular in their Etecs? We have a 2011 600 that we run with regular with no problem. Are the engines...

    What's it worth?

    I'm looking for a 146 x 2" or better yet a 137 x 2". I'm in Yellowknife and anything longer takes the fun out of it for me. The riding here ranges from 3' of powder on a lake edge or in the bush to hardpack trails and lakes. Right now I'm just looking in town and theres not a lot of choices...

    What's it worth?

    OK the freeride was a no go. I'm looking at this one now. Here's what he says: 2017 Ski Doo backcountry 600 etec 146" track with electric start Sled has only 1400km and is in mint condition besides small crack on side panel. Comes with ggb mountain can, (still have stock can) ski doo cover and...

    What's it worth?

    OK thanks for all the replies, I'll have to see if he is willing to go lower. The sled is in Yellowknife and unfortunately probably even used sleds go for a premium here as there is just no selection.

    What's it worth?

    2015 Freeride 800 137x1.75 with 5150 km. Does the mileage indicate the sled is going to be worn out and I should keep looking, or is it good to go? Anything I should look for on the sled? He is asking $8000 - is that reasonable or are better deals to be found?

    Goggle recommendation?

    Yes, I agree full face is better for really cold weather and I switch to my modular helmet around -30. But warmer than that and I have my modular fogging up as soon as I am throwing around my sled. Hence the need for the snowcross helmet with goggles. I'll take a good look at the oakleys, I'm...

    Goggle recommendation?

    Thanks for the suggestions, I will check out the Oakley and Klim. Lack of a nose cover is fine for me as my no-fog mask covers my nose/lower face completely.

    Goggle recommendation?

    I'm looking for goggle recommendations. Currently I ride with a 509 helmet, size XL. I ride in temp's as low as -30 and as warm as -10 with a neoprene no-fog and a balaclava under my helmet. My current goggles are snowboard goggles and have too much airflow, they are usually too cold or my eyes...

    Should I buy an 08 Summit Rev XP? What to look for?

    Ok, it's a very easy decision to pass on this one after reading all the replies! For the guys that offered sleds for sale my only criteria for the sled is a max 146", preferably 137", I'm in Yellowknife and although there are lots of guys with 154 and 163 sleds here I think it takes away from...

    Should I buy an 08 Summit Rev XP? What to look for?

    I'm looking at buying a "new" sled as per the title. It's got 1600 km and a rebuilt engine. They are asking $4600. Is the price good or bad? Should I go for this sled or try to get something better for more cash? What should I look for when viewing the sled? Thanks in advance

    2017 F150 - Best Canopy

    Does anyone have a canopy recommendation for the new style F150 with 6'-6" box? I'm looking for a cab-height canopy that seals well (water and dust) around the box and tailgate. I've been looking in Edmonton and am considering the Range Rider Cruiser or the Raider Vagabond, but I'll look at any...
