Can anyone tell me if the turbo is the only thing that should be cherry red when hot or does the pipe up to the muffler get cherry red as well? rolleyes.gif

Must be snowing in Porcupine as someone is in a good mood. Might want to look up the threads talking about ventilation kits. Aftermarket ones from SLP available at Thomas or Ochs or you can PM Breez and have him show you his. Snowing for 12 hours here in South Sask and supposed to snow all night and then get copld for two days and nice for the week-end. Hopefully the groomers can get out for the 1st time. Have to do soemthing now that there is no more Junior Hockey. Congrats USA, the kids played well but wait until next year.

Ok, since we are asking what is normal on these sleds.

Is a whinning bearing type sound normal while driving?
Is this the chain drive or track wheel bearings?
Hard to place where it is coming from but I would guess right side directly below.

This sled is a whole new world of different sounds compared to 2 strokes.

Jason, I doubt that you have enough miles on your 09 to have wore out the wheel bearings underneath and if you check the chaincase and it has the oil where it is supposed to be on the dipstick, I would suspect you are hearing noise from the Ripsaw track. All I hear at speed is the wind at my head with a med height windshield and the hum from the motor.

I will hear some noise as the day wears on and ice builds under the skid which creates crunching sounds at times and at others it sounds as if everything is coming apart underneath. Once you get it warmed up and the ice removed pay attention for the first few miles out to confirm that the noise is not present when the skid is dry and afterwards when it is caked with ice to see the difference.

Track noise...., exhaust heating...., Chain case rattle...... snow???
I know not what you guys speak of!!! laugh.gif

Sounds like there's gonna be an FSTfest in Regina this weekend if you keep talking about 'hours of snow'..

Is there room to park a couple trailers in your yard?

Now, to my question.... Bowana, it sounds like you DON'T have a ripsaw on yours... What do you have for track?

My 07 Fusion had 1 1/4 ripsaw and that thing had traction to lift the skis any speed/day.. This FST seems to be a little squirly in the back end due to spinning although I haven't had the chance to tweak suspension yet...

I have the standard 1 1/4 ripsaw track and it works great. I had plans to long track it this winter but had a few other expensive things come up so it will be next fall's project.
We had around 3 inches on top of what we already had so the conditions will be getting very good except for the old hard drifts underneath. Stubble fields are full as are the ditches anywhere they were exposed to the wind and new snow. Powder around the bluffs and sloughs if you know what I mean, not to take anything away from our southern brothers who may not have a clue as to what I am talking about when I say "slough".

Great snow from Grenfel west both sides of the Trans Canada.

PM if interested as I have a nephew in Winnipeg that rides, although it is yellow and not a Switchback and he may be interested in a trip out west.

Yep, I know exactly what a slough is.... lol.. I'm heading out to the country this weekend with da boyz, there's rumors of snow further south / West of Winnipeg, although I'm sure every sled in Winnipeg will be heading that direction so we're going to stick close to the ole homestead(s) and probably avoid the high traffic areas..

Not sure if I'm anxious enough for a trailer ride West yet, but will definitely keep the offer in mind for February!.. smile.gifsmile.gif
