    Why DOO SKI-DOO motors blow up at such a low mileage?

    Just to cool the enthusiasm for 800 xm, my 16 needed a top end at 3400kms. Always warmed up, skidoo oil.

    Cataract Creek condition and concerns for the 2021/22 season

    Rode out of Dutch Creek on Sunday. Trails were generally in good shape, thin in places and a couple short segments of dirt. Hopefully more snow this week!

    Sidewinder motor temp

    Yes, I think it starts to cut power around daughter did this on Sunday riding the crowsnest. It's got to be pretty bad trails (like dirt) to overheat. My 16 Summit overheats much quicker!

    Bent rail

    So discovered I have one slightly bent real yesterday. Not super surprised this happened given all the cutouts on the rails. I think I have two options, buy a used stock skid and install a brace kit (Itek Industries) or buy ice age rails. I see ice age has a bomber option. I don't want to go...

    SD 43 code

    When I took mine into the dealer with this issue, it was still under warranty, they blamed the battery. Said it had to be over 12.5v. I bought a new battery and had same issues. You should be able to monitor your battery voltage on your gauges while riding and before starting. Sounds like...

    SD 43 code

    I just went through this, it was a loose fuse on my sled. I gave the fuse blade a slight twist to give it better contact. But could be relays.

    Sidewinder not starting sd_43 code

    Fuse...I tried relays 1st as there is so much chatter about sidewinders and relays.

    Sidewinder not starting sd_43 code

    Turned out to be an intermittent loose fuse. Really annoying. Twisted the blade to give it more bite. Fuses seem to be lose fitting vs my apex and phaser.

    Never ride without them, light hardshell motocross knee/shin pads.

    Sidewinder not starting sd_43 code

    Went to load up my sidewinder for a weekend in Revy... no start! Code sd_43 on the dash. Apparently something to do with fuel system electrical supply. On my apex this meant fuel pump relay but swapping the relays changed nothing. Turns over fine, battery is good, connections at the battery are...

    Reducing search and rescue calls

    How about establishing an emergency channel like channel 16 in marine radios. There's a lot of knowledgable riders in Revy that could lend a hand and avoid a SAR call.

    Hurricane Flash in Calgary?

    Bought a brand new 2017 Sidewinder last season, warranty expires in Jan. Looking to up the HP with a hurricane flash, I've heard good things about the hurricane flash and MTN riding. Anyobe know if a shop does this in Calgary, or close buy? Can I do this myself with some sort of reflash kit?

    Towing with Sidewinder

    I've got a 2017 sidewinder I'm looking to tow a small utility sled, probably 150-100lbs fully loaded(just skis and packs). I don't see much on the Yamaha site for hitches for the mtx, just the light duty hitch. Anyone else towing with an mtx, what hitch set up are you using? I haven't...
