Arctic cat jag wont start?

1979 arctic cat jag wont start. it ran 5 min before then it started to act like it was running out of gas then it stoped running. i checked for spark but there was none. hope someone can help me|||sounds like your C.D.I. box is bad. have you tried new plugs?

Arctic cat 2008 f5 snowmobile can?

I am looking for a can for my Arctic cat 2008 F5. I have not had any luck in finding one. So do you know what website I could look at?|||Try Jaws or Dynoport...

If you're looking for an aftermarket can, you usually can't get them through Dennis Kirk or the like, you have to go straight through the manufacturer. We've been lucky and found both our cans on ebay for much less than retail, so try there too! Good luck!

What do you think of Arctic Cat ATVs?

they arn't my favorite.|||I think they're great for rock crawling because of the very high ground clearance and i like the new thundercat because of the 1000cc engine but the speed isnt so great. They're very heavy machines and they dont handle the best either. The race machines I really dont have an opinion on those.|||The people at the parts counter probably hate them - the parts diagrams are difficult to view :-)

I hate working on the engines - they're not mechanic friendly.

They do what they're made for.

So from an owners point of view, they're OK machines.|||anything IS BETTER THAN A POLARIS

The Arctic Cat's use Suzuki Engines, 400-500-700 cc utility|||They are slightly better than a Polaris.

Bart, they are barely better

Does anyone know when the Skidoo and Arctic Cat snowmobiles were invented? I'?

I'm doing a research paper on the snowmobile and am having a hard time finding the dates for which those two snowmobiles came about.

1962: Birth of Arctic Cat

Polar Manufacturing opened its doors on January 2, 1961, and initially manufactured electric steam cleaners and a device to kill insects called 'Bug-O-Vac' to raise enough money to begin snowmobile production in earnest. The first snowmobile, the 'New Polar 500,' was completed by the end of the year and marketed as a utility model for use by forestry, power and light, telephone, and oil exploration companies. Although Hetteen had wanted to develop snowmobiles as a recreational product nearly from the outset of his involvement with the machines, he knew he needed to develop a need for snowmobiles before he could begin to inspire a desire for them. In 1962, after its inaugural year of business, Polar Manufacturing was renamed Arctic Enterprises, Inc.. That year it introduced the red 'Arctic Cat 100,' the first front-engined sport sled in the United States, which Hetteen referred to as the 'Tin Lizzie.' Concurrent with the introduction of the Arctic Cat 100, a distribution network was established to carry the machine to distant markets, as Hetteen had always hoped. Although the New Polar 500 had been the first model produced, the Arctic Cat 100 represented the beginning of an era for both Arctic Enterprises and snowmobile enthusiasts across the country, ushering in a new winter sport and launching the Arctic Cat tradition.D|||Jamaica mon.

Edit: Sorry I wasn't wearing my glasses. I thought you said where. I have no idea when these two companies started making snow mobiles.|||Ski-Doo - 1959

Does anyone know where to buy 1974 VIP Panther Arctic Cat snowmobile side decals and rear shroud?

hey there i cannot find 1974 VIP Panther side decals anywhere as well as a rear shroud...can someone please please help me??|||Justine,

I'm not well-connected in the snowmobile scene so I don't have a great suggestion of where to look for those decals, but I do have an alternate suggestion instead of trying to find what sounds like a needle in a haystack (or pile of snow, if that's more appropriate here).

If you know the look and or measurements of the decals you need, you can make them yourself quickly and easily online at

Enter the dimensions you need for the decal(s); and then customize text, colors, and artwork to your liking. And most orders placed before 3pm EST ship the next day!

Good luck with the snowmobile and the decals!

Oh, and Happy New Year!

I have a 97 arctic cat and it won't start. When i pulled the sparkplugs...?

When i pulled the spark plugs to see if its getting spark a gread amount of gas comes out it almost looks like its watered down.

What is its top speed?

Does it have good acceleration?

Does it handle deep mud/water well?|||yes its a good one

the Arctic Cat 400 has the exact same engine as the Suzuki Eiger, its a Suzuki engine made by Suzuki, but the Arctic Cat has a different frame and more features such as independent rear suspension.

Arctic Cat M8 vs. Polaris Dragon 800 which is better and why?

Can anyone tell me about a 1998 Arctic Cat Powder Special 600 snowmobile, I am thinking of buying one.?

The guy wants 1200 with 1400 miles, very reasonable offer it is, however, i know nothing of this type of sled-or arcitc cats in general (I have always ran Polaris). I do know that it is a twin cylinder 600 and am not sure if EFI or carburated. Please let me know, i cant really find much info or reviews on this sled. Thanks|||i have had two artic cats and they both had suzuki engines. They run great one of mine is a 1995 with about 6000 miles and never had to replace anything. $1200 for the 600 is a fair price especially with the low miles the sled has. Trips up north over a weekend can put nearly 300 miles a day easy. I'd say the sled is in excelent shape. I just bought a 2001 indy 550 with 2000 miles for $1500.|||If you always ran Polaris stick with them. You will not be happy with anything else|||Since you're not familiar with them, check around for shops in your area to see if they service, or can get parts for Arctic Cats.

Some regions they're not that popular.

Arctic Cat's are as dependable as the next brand.

I have a 2000 Arctic Cat 250 2x4, and its not charging at all, What should i do?

i have cleaned an greased all the connectors.|||You need to charge the battery first.

These small batteries sitting too long will go bad and then

the plates in the battery end up sulfated making it even harder to charge.

Regardless, remove the battery %26amp; let your charger work on it for a couple days, then test it in the machine.

Pull the machine up close to white wall to see headlight shining on it.

As you rev the engine, does the light get brighter?

If so, this is very cool, and the alternator works.

If no change, then it could be a connection is gunked up,

or it needs a rectifier.

If machine is getting deep into mud %26amp; water, this might need more deeper looking for corrosion.

How do you check the oil on a 2001 arctic cat 400 4x4 and how much does it hold?

On the right side of the engine is the oil level sight window.

It's round, clear, about 1" in diameter.

Procedure to check the oil level -

Start and run the engine for a few minutes - to allow the oil to circulate

throughout the engine.

Stop the engine and let it rest for a few minutes - to allow the oil to settle

to the bottom of the crankcase.

The oil level should cover 1/2 - 3/4 of the oil level sight window.

Add or drain oil as necessary.

it seems to be very different. Can it happen?|||It can happen.You will need decent fabrication skills.

Do I Have Speedracks on my arctic cat atv?

it is a 2005 artic cat 400 vp with out irs but with 4wheel drive and an automatic tranny.|||Probably not. The SpeedRack system has a SPEEDRACK decal on them. Also they came usually on the FIS models. One more clue. Go to the Arctic Cat website鈥?/a> and go to the catalogs at the bottom of the page. The catalogs are PDF files so you can increase the view magnification to see detailed photos of what a speedrack looks like.

I just bought a 2005 Arctic Cat 500 4x4 Auto. Is it normal to keep it in 4 wheel at all times?


Front wheel engagement should be used for road use and high speed cruising. That for stability and handling, steering etc.

Four wheel use is really for poor terrain, snow and should not be used at high speeds like cruising, unless your in a desert perhaps.|||I have several 4X4 ATV's

There is no reason to keep your unit in a 4x4 mode all the time. Your just increasing the wear on the front end.

If you are having an issue getting it out of the 4X4 mode need to take it in for service.

Since it is now about three years old, not a bad idea to do that anyway.|||if it has a selector for 4x4 or 2x4 on it .........when you are on hard flat surfaces such as dirt roads, paved roads, fields and such use the 2x4 mode . this improves the handeling , manuverability ,speed and overall ride of your quad .

4x4 should only be used in places where traction is in question . steep hills , loose or rocky soil etc.

remember that when it is 4x4 that the front wheels are not only steering but pulling at the same time and can cause the quad to take sudden jumps off of rocks , logs , stumps etc. so keep your speed down to keep from fliping or rolling it.

My Arctic Cat 1990 Jag AFS says 88 octane minimum. I have been running 89 octane. Can i switch to 87?

all gas station by me have the 10% ethanol. but that doesn't bother it at all.|||my old sled says to run premium and the only thing ran in it is regularr|||minimum 88 octane doesn't mean less than 88 octane so no you shouldn't use 87 octane, 88 or higher is what it calls for.

What type of seals are used in arctic cat snowmobiles?

Arctic cat dvx 250 2006 model?

im thinking of getting an arctic cat dvx 250. just wondering if its a good bike. i am planning on using it for the trails... they can get pretty muddy so would this be a good bike for that. i dont want an expensive bike and we found some at a good price. any opinions would be apreciated.|||if your your going with arcticcat for trail riding you would be better off on a arcticcat utility atv|||But your a lady!!! so should be doing ladie like things, like shopping for clothes and make-up etc etc etc|||To be on the safe side - install a winch kit.|||WHO DOESN'T LIKE A DIRTY GIRL??? ;) the DVX is a OK machine. i think the automatic is OK but they should have a sporty model with manual or semi. i would look at a Kawasaki prairie 360 you can have 4 wheel drive and 2 wheel drive. it has high and low ranges and is in the same price range used, the motor is good for low end and mid ranges which makes it good for plowing pulling and trail riding. if a 360cc is too big for you then look at a 250ex/x its has semi and manual shift on it. so you can practice using a clutch. it will still have more power than the DVX. good luck.

i got it out and i have since put a new fuel filter and fuel pump and checked all the fuel lines it seems like it wants to start but gas wont get to engine fast enough to keep the sled going what do i do to fix that?|||Ice in the tank means water in the gas pump or a open fuel cap.

Best thing to do is a complete fuel system cleaning.

My arctic Cat has trouble starting?

My arctic CAT ATV has trouble starting after it has been running for a while and when the fan kicks on. I hit the starter and have to push in on the trottle to get it started. Like I said only after it pulls heavy loads or is getting a good workout. We use it for farm activities. Every once in a while when it hard to keep it runing it will back fire and then start up? What do I need to look at or do?|||it sounds like a carburetor issue. try to tune it up, your idle sounds like its set low. then when you push the throttle while starting, it is probably loading it with fuel then abruptly combusting, causing it to backfire. it starts after because the system is "cleared" and new fuel is allowed to do the same. I'd say tune it up...and it is probably running really rich, and you may be flooding it when you're pulling those loads and giving it more gas, in my own opinion|||MY POLAR BEAR BIGGER|||if there's an automatic choke on it that might be faulty or if its injection it could be the cold start injector

Lights on 2003 Arctic Cat 400 ATV Do Not Work?

1994 Arctic cat wildcat 700 snowmobile dies after 3 seconds?

It will start every time and run for about 3 seconds. The battery is gone only way i can get it to work is on the charger and battery will hold 0 charge without charger on it. So does the gas get pumped into the engine electrically? Is there a chance that the battery isn't allowing the gas to be pumped in because it cant hold enough charge?

Can anyone tell me about an 1998 Arctic Cat Powder Special 600?

The guy wants 1200 with 1400 miles, very reasonable offer it is, however, i know nothing of this type of sled-or arcitc cats in general (I have always ran Polaris). I do know that it is a twin cylinder 600 and am not sure if EFI or carburated. Please let me know, i cant really find much info or reviews on this sled. Thanks|||It is one of the finest snow utensils on the market. Generally, the twin cylinders alternate at a rapid pace to equalize torque on the engine, resulting in a smooth, pleasing ride. When sitting in idle, the vibration of the instrument translates to a pleasing sensation in the loins. $1,200 is a steal for this kind of fun!

Can you rehone a 1972 arctic cat chrome lined cylinder?

slight ring wear on bore rering|||You can hone Arctic Cat cylinders but only with a flex ball hone. If you use a rigid hone your cylinder is going to be toast. I've honed hundreds of cat cylinders (kawi and suzi motors).

If you have aluminum stuck to it from a seized piston, you can remove it with muric acid (the stuff from swimming pools).

You can get a ball hone on ebay or any snowmobile dealer will have them.||| have to re-sleeve it since it is crome|||ok|||yes u can and go 25 over on the hone the cylinder and if not the dolphins went un defeated...|||No, you need to get a new sleeve|||If you don't require an over hone (notice I didn't say bore), have an engine machine shop touch it up on a Sunnen honing machine. They now have stones near near 1000 grit range. A couple of very light passes should save it for you. I remember saving a 1974 air cooled 440 TX Polaris which had chrome cylinders. The pistons had Dykes rings. Two new pistons (same size as originals) and she lived for many yrs. A pilot jet was plugged and she went lean and burned a piston. Possibly you could find un-chromed cast iron sleeves as replacements if needed. In today's world you can buy .005 over pistons if you have a snowmobile motor with steel or cast iron liners. No boring needed. A Sunnen honing machine can get you within 1/10 of one thousandth and they shine up like hard chrome.|||I doubt it. If you hone a chromed cylinder, you will scrape the chrome out of it. I do not know anyone that has tried this, but that would be my opinion.


Which is better yamaha or arctic cat snowmobiles?

I want to know because i will be buying one this winter|||Arctic Cat makes good snowmobiles, but if you don't mind spending the extra money - Yamaha is a better quality and has better performance.

Another thing to take into consideration is parts availability.

Yamaha is a popular brand and you can order parts from anywhere.

To get Arctic Cat parts, you have to order them from an Arctic Cat dealer and they are scarce - not very good when riding far from home in another state.

Parts ordering isn't a fun experience (order mix-ups, wrong parts sent, back orders) LOL|||Yamaha is pretty good. I've never heard of the second one but I am familiar with Yamaha.|||I have had both brands and they are equally as good in performance and reliability. If you are located in an area that is good for snow / snowmobiling parts shouldn't be a problem.

If you plan to by new - then I would go with the Yamaha, but if you plan to buy used, then I would consider both, based on the model, condition, etc. All of the top brands are good if taken care of and maintained properly.

Just make sure you get the model for they type of riding you do. Powder, track / snocross, touring, etc. It makes a big difference. You wouldn't want a powerful powder sled on a touring trip and you couldn't take a touring sled in the deep powder.

Snowmobile knowledge? 92 Arctic Cat Wildcat 700 with reoccurring air bubbles at one carburetor?

I replaced the fuel line thinking it was cracked but the air bubbles come from the carb itself? the other carb does not do this and of course it is creating a lean side for first 10 minutes then the air is gone. till engine is shut off air fills in the line again?|||Air in the lines is normal and do not have any effect on how it runs. Air will seek the highest point and remain there. Yes, the air comes from the carb and not the tank. The carb is vented. Your carb only needs enough fuel to fill the bowl and keep it filled.

Only fuel injected machines use a pressurized fuel system.

If you have a lean condition, it is not from this but could be from a dirty or varnished carb.|||As a general rule if bubbles form in the carb, my suggestion would be the service both carbs. Its possible that the gasket between the top and bottom of the carb has failed allowing air to be sucked into the fuel bowel.

My arctic cat exhaust is glowing red. is this normal?

hey guys, i have a 2003 arctic cat 500 4x4 and i have noticed the exhaust glowing red every time i ride it. im wanting to know if this is normal or not. it runs great, the issue does not seem to affect performance or anything else, and it does not run hot. any info. will be helpful. THANKS!!|||Or it is running rich! I've seen where the choke was left on causing the pipe to glow red. In this instance it is caused by unburnt gasoline exiting the cylinder and continuing to burn in the exhaust pipe, heating it up and making it glow. Either way, rich, lean or valve issues it needs to be addressed. You say it is not running hot but this continued combustion after ignition is slowly cooking your exhaust valve and cylinder head. that will cost cubic dollars to fix. Best to verify the state of tune on the carbie, ignition timing and a compression test.|||Maybe, maybe not. First off, must 4 wheelers have a single wall header pipe rather than the typical double walled pipes used on chromed Japanese exhaust systems. The thinner the wall, the greater the chance of the metal glowing red. In addition, bikes produce the most exhaust heat when under heavy load, i.e. going fast. The faster they go, the more air flow their is to carry header pipe heat away. 4 wheelers don't go that fast and don't have the high velocity air flow going by to cool the pipe.

You don't say if you only notice this at night or during the day as well or if you're talking about a few inches from the head, where the header pipe makes a sharp turn (more likely to glow red) or further back.

Pull the spark plug and take a look at it. If it's very white or even snow white colored and the porcelain is blistered looking, then you probably have an intake leak and it's running way too lean.

Glowing red being bad? Not always. At night, I've had heavily loaded tractors cause the entire 3/16" thick cast iron exhaust manifold glow bright red, the muffler glow red where the baffles connect with the outer shell as well as 3-4 inches of fire exiting the muffler. There wasn't a thing wrong, just heavily loaded.|||No it's running lean, need to get a bigger main jet in the carb before you blow it up. that or you have dirt in the one you have causing a lean condition, either way you need to address the problem before something bad happens.|||not normal. possible clog someplace

It only depends on what the job entails %26amp; weather or not you want to put forth the effort.

Probably missing.???|||you probably need to clean the carbs and check the fuel pump. check the fuel filter and screen in tank. If you can prime the engine and get it to run you probably have a fuel system problem. make sure that you have good new spark plugs. replace the resistor plug caps on the wires they go bad just like plugs, and can cause weak spark. they are cheap and are often overlooked by owners and mechanics alike!! ones that old need to be replaced anyway many engines that have a "miss" that no one can find are from the caps. pay particular attention to the enrichening circuit on the carb(s) as this is important to starting also check the check valve in the fuel pump. if it leaks fuel runs back down away from carb(s) and causes hard starting(have to pull many times to start)|||Sounds liek the exact sypmtoms I experienced.

Suspension wise, it's a toss up. The Arctic Cat tracks better in a straight line. Both corner pretty flat, and absorb the bumps well. Neither feature "plush" ride quality, but the Yamaha should be a bit more comfortable.

The motors are pretty evenly matched. Right in the mid 90's, horsepower wise. The Arctic Cat has batteryless EFI, which is a big plus. However, the Yamaha will have a more durable, and smoother running motor.

The thing that would make me choose the Yamaha is: it has much better build quality than the Arctic Cat.

Check the plugs. If they are rusty or red color, that means too lean of a mixture. What you want is a nice tan color. If they are black and sooty that means the mixture is too rich. Adjusting the airfuel mixture is more of a screw setting and not a jet change. If it runs good without breaking up at top end then don't touch the jets. You need to adjust the airfuel mixture screw. Bogging at low end means you need to adjust the slide needle.|||check your exhaust you went to a larger carb and richened your fuel mixture ( it should be 40 to 1 ) and clogged your exhaust|||Eric, field strip both Mikuni carbs. No power and backfiring is a dead giveaway that the motor is running lean. Carefully remove the pilot jets and be absolutely they are clean and clear make sure the holes are clean on the extension barrel of the pilot jets. There is a tiny number stamped on the top. It will say: 25, 30, 35, or as high as 40. By now you will have removed the slide valves. Check to see at the very top if one of the clips are missing that secure the jet needle to The top of the slide valve. Note the groove that the clip is in. To make your system richer raise the needle in the center and snap the clip lower toward the tapered end. Remove the main jets on the bottom of the float bowls. Make sure they are clean.

Make sure bith floats are light in weight and emty. pull the veedle valves out and spray through them with Berrymen carb cleaner. Make sure a float hanger is not set too low as there won't be enough avalable fuel in the float bowl to supply the main jets or the pilot jet. Douche every hole of the carbuerator. Now for the final test make sure your diaphragm fuel pump is squirting a liberal amount of fuel (without being hooked to the carbs) by pulling the recoil starter. If you are getting a week shot the fuel pump may need rebuilding with a new diaphragm kit. Make sure your impulse hoses aren't split or cracked. The impulse hoses provide vacuum and pressure to the fuel pump to make it work properly. While you're it be prepared to re-hose everything.

If all else fails do a compression check. You should see a minimum of 125 lbs. pressure. If not you may have a bad piston or rings. Remember, proper compression designates how much impulse pressure gets to the fuel pump. As I rember these motors have chrome cylinder liners and you can't re-bore them. I hppe you don't need new cylinder juggs.

the downside is that the darn thing still only gets about 10 mpg|||I've been thinking of jumping on the bandwagon myself. Maybe building ones with crate engines like Boss Hoss does with their motorcycles.

I think there is a market for an ATV with a ZZ502 Big Block Chevy powering it.

Just kidding.

But seriously, if people will buy it, they will build it. It will follow the same path as motorcycles and snowmobiles. They will keep getting bigger and bigger and more expensive as long as they can sell them.

This is the key, the profit on a $10,000 ATV is a lot more than the profit on a $5000 ATV.|||a 1000cc engine is not to big at all. However that monstrous POS they stuck it in is WAY to big with an over 700 pound dry weight. And is most likely a turd to ride at that weight and size. However i'm all for a retuned for torque 1000cc sportbike inline 4 cylinder in a 475 pounds or less package. Just imagine that sucker screaming through the countryside and what it could do in a desert race with a skilled rider. And please make it available with a manual trans.

Why does my 2004 Arctic Cat 50cc ATV keeps shutting off?

It runs for 5-10 minutes then stalls. It then becomes hard to start almost as if it is a vapor lock or it's not getting fuel. I have rebuilt the carburetor and put a new fuel filter on.|||You may have an ignition system problem. Possibly a electronic ignition module. These type of problems are difficult to determine and may actually require a not so smart piece by piece trial and error. Firstly, it may be assumed this is a temperature problem but not absolutely. I would run the machine without the air cleaner and obviously make sure there is not dirt around to suck in. Then wait for the machine to 'stall'. Quickly try to restart it. If it does not start, I would spray a small amount of starter fluid or mixed fuel into the carb and try and restart. If it tries to run then that would lead me back to the fuel system. Hopefully it will not ignite. Then that would lead back to the electrical side. Maybe you could do an ohm check on the kill switch to see if it is possibly shorting. No matter what it is discovered to be, when you find it, you will be a whole lot smarter for the next time. Hope this helps. It is my best guess.

What snowmobile is better for trails and sometimes of trails Arctic Cat or Ski Doo?

For the most part i ride trail, ive had all Ski Doo's and want to be sure that im not missing out|||To be honest, I have never had much luck, with Arctic Cat Snowmobiles... I have had them, since 1964, and, even then, they were not much. On the other hand, I have also had Ski-Doo Snowmobiles, since 1964, and, even though, the Arctic Cats were faster, they were no good in the deep snow. They were ok, on the trails, where they were groomed, but, once you got to where they weren't, then, they would bog down, and become stuck. Where as the old Ski-Doos, were not as fast, but, they were very good, in the deep snow, and, also where the trails were groomed as well. It seems to me, that any of the sleds that had a single cylinder engine, were better, in some respects. So, to answer your question, I would have to say... The Ski-Doo is better, for trail riding, as well as off the trail.

How do I drain the gas on an '04 arctic cat 650 v twin automatic?

Now i notice that the oil is just pouring out of the bottom of the sled somewhere.|||There is an oil line that comes out of the bottom of the reservoir. If the sled is leaking oil when it isn't running, the line is most likely loose or damaged somewhere along its route.

I have had this problem before on a Polaris.

If it happens only after being run, it could be the line, the seals, or a cracked block.

Make sure that it isn't actually your chain case that is leaking oil.

And last but nor least you may have a “runny nose” meaning an injector(s) that do not operate properly and need cleaning.

How can I install an electric start on a 1988 Arctic Cat Cougar snowmobile?

My daughter bought this snowmoblie and neither of us are strong enough to start it with the pull cord. I would like to install an electric starter to make life easier.|||Unfortunately I dont think its possible. You would have to install a flywheel that has teeth on it for a starter to ingage, the engine would have to have a place for the starter to mount and then theres a battery and wiring. Some of the people who race snowmobiles have an electric motor that is hand help and ingaged into the crankshaft. But carrying one of those wouldnt be fun .Call a snowmobile shop and see if they can do it , but you`d be better off buying one that has electric start.|||If it didn't come with an electric starter then it probably can't be added now.

But the trick isn't the starter. You should try using STARTER-FLUID. You can get them at hardware store - usually for small engines like lawn mowers.

Also get the snow mobile "winterized" when out of season. Gasoline turns into thick varnish when left around for few months.

Good Luck.

I had another Rancher before this one that I'd had for 6 years and never had a problem with it. If you're looking for better pulling power and just better flat out power I'd take the Honda.

Are there gps systems for arctic cat snowmobiles?

I need a gps for my arctic cat Z370.I want it to have all the trails on it!|||There are some say suitable for motorcycles and some say off Road. Take a look at the comparisons on|||Although I'm not aware of any specifically designed for snowmobiles, most handheld receivers should meet your a point.

Garmin and magellan make the most popular handheld receivers, and they do offer an optional handlebar mount as an accessory. The mount is pretty universal and should work on your snowmobile, but I'd measure the diameter of your handlebar where you plan to mount it to be sure.

The biggest challenge is having the trails you want on the device. Most devices (including all garmin and magellan receivers) require you to purchase extra software to view topo maps on your GPS, and the trails you want may not necessarily be on that software. If the trail is not on the USGS map that the software used for it's scans, it won't be on the GPS map either. Garmin does have a 'map viewer' on it's site so you can see what the map will look like. Simply zoom in on the area you'll be going to.

Magellan is in the process of launching a new device called the 'triton' that uses National Geographic and Mountain Dynamic maps...the most accurate maps available, but also the most expensive. Since it's brand new, there aren't as many accessories, but they'll come with time.|||Depends on where you live. I used to work for a major mapping/gps company and most of the trail systems were an additional purchase or software upgrade (they always find a way to get more money out of you.) Currently I work as a surveyor and we are creating trail maps and 3d models for some state and national parks so they are not for public sale as of yet. Best suggestion would be to contact gps manufacturer and/or search for the area you will be sledding.

Arctic cat?

my Arctic Cat 1990 Cheetah (440) has a leaking chain case. we are using the right oil and have been resealing it with silicon but it still leaks. we have exammined the case for cracks and cant find any. it is leaking from the bottom and we can't get in to check it out. all we know that it is leaking from the bottom. help would be greatly appreciated|||Silicone sucks for sealing two surfaces that contain oil. In automotive I use a product called "Right Stuff". I believe it is made by Permatex. Should be available at any auto supply. Clean the area you want to seal and use this instead of silicone. Believe me-you wont be disappointed.|||The area to be sealed needs to be clean and free of oil until silicone sets drain oil and let sit until seeping stops the seal and give plenty of time for silicone to set. you can also add UV dye to oil to track leak source|||if you have already tried to properly re seal it, it is possible that it got hot and the case warped.
