• Poll: If your sled broke could you fix it?

    snowmobile repair on the trail
    Feb 15, 2014

    Snowmobiles are machines, and machines break. Usually when you need them most. Just like cars, the mechanics of snowmobiles have become more complicated, although some of the basics are still in place.

    This questions revolves around your ability or willingness to escape the woods if your snowmobile decided to stop dead on the trail. Could you or would you fix it?

      Yes I could but I believe in a lot of┬ámaintenance so I don’t break down in the woods

      Depends what Breaks. But would give it my best shot before taking the walk of shame.

      I do a lot of preventative maintenance also. Only 2 problems I’ve had on the trail was a blown heat exchanger (made it back to the trailer) and a blown head gasket (had to tow it out). I’m confident in my skills, but I do carry a tow strap.

      Had a blown head gasket once on a Polaris xlt out in the bush during a big bag ride up in Quebec years ago. Between the four of us on the trip we had enough tools and some gum wrapper foil to patch the blown out section of the gasket. Worked for 110 miles till we reached the nearest polaris dealer for a new gasket.
