    1994 Polaris Indy Super Sport

    Thinking of selling this older or almost classic Sled 440 fan cooled. It would make a great stubble jumper. We even had it out to the Fernie area several times years past. its not getting enough use. Just got it back form the shop for a carb rebuild and a few other minor issues. but it runs...

    duromax fuel economy

    I agree with AbleSmith moderation in driving is key. Everything lasts longer,and you save fuel. I am no tree hugger. I will do what is necessary to make my truck run more efficiently. At the same time if I decide I am in a hurry or decide I need to utilize all the resources my truck has to...

    Riding areas around Fernie

    I appreciate the invitation, and I may look into that sometime when my wife and I want to get away for a weekend. But I only live 2 hours from Fernie. Its is only a short 2 hour drive for me, and since my 2 kids are skiing at the hill every Saturday for the next couple of weeks, my schedule...

    Anyone running new 2011 Duramax

    just wondering if it is possible to delete the urea system and the extra emmisions on the new d-max with the use of programmers.

    Duramax exhaust ideas for 2005

    I just run my 2004.5 lly stock except for a programer or chip (Van Aaken chip). I have always wondered if a turbo back exhaust, or a cat back exhaust will make a huge added advantage for me. I do know that my Van Aaken chip has more than paid for itself of the the years that I have had my...

    Cold out, what oil are guys running in diesel trucks

    I use shell rottela or Chevron synthetic 5-40 oil in all my diesels and gas pots. this way they start easier when it is cold and also since i am a litttle lazy in my oil changes I can be confident that it is not to critical because the oil does not d=break down as fast as fast as conventional oils.

    Duramax Suburban on Kijiji

    35k is still pricey for the unit i think, low miles though, if it is as reliable as my 2004.5 lly 2500 hd, it should be one nice family machine. I think that it probably could be bought for under 25k. In fact I do not think my truck is worth more than 15k with 300000 km on it, even though it...

    Riding areas around Fernie

    Thanks, I did a little more exploring this Saturday and kind of figured that out. I guess those side trails were not groomed last week and that confused me. It's still kind of tough getting to wranglers cabin through the rolling hills, but at least I am not getting lost now. Will need to do some...

    Riding areas around Fernie

    I ride Fernie every Saturday now. I normally play along coal trail but when I read the groom report I see that Harvy pass, coal train, Martin creek and hills entry are groomed. I know about coal trail and Harvy pass, but where do Martin creek and hills entry start? I can not find them on the...

    Post pics of your house build

    Thought I would post some pics of my garage. We moved into our house almost 5 months ago. When I designed my garage I wanted a 2 car garage big enough so I can park a crew cab long box dually inside with enough room for a work bench and enough room to walk around the truck so here we go. As...

    Wrong clutch weights from factory! 2010 Dragon 800.

    What I am gathering here is that I also may have a clutching issue with my 2008 800 dragon. On the trail approx 4500 ft asl. It powers till 42 mph then flattens out. I can push it to about 55 mph. My old 99 700 rmk powers right to 80 or till I get scared. I have not tried it on higher...

    2009 assault vs 2008 xp

    Well here is what I did. I really like the color red, and then I came across this 2008 dragon mint shape, on it's 3rd engine, slp pipe and can, electric start, 155 track, ect. In fact I believe it was also advertised on snow and mud. Any ways I thought it looked real good and clean. I think...
