OMG!

I been having a few issues with my girfriends Jagz1. stalling, hard starting........etc. SO what would any normal person do.................Start with the fuel filter and Spark plugs.
Holy mechanic school. I had to remove side panels, seat, handlebars, gas tank frame, gas tank, and then the air box! Who is the DUMB Engineer on this one! Thank god this is not a 2 stroke!

Actually. My dealer told me to get at the plugs, all you have to do is remove the 2 screws on on either side of Bars and the entire piece comes off and you can get access to plugs.

Not an easy task.... I took mine to the dealer!!

$200.00 later, I had new plugs!!! Oh well, I have saved that in oil I guess. LOL

Hopefully they find a way to make it a little easier!

It really is not that hard, but does take time. The thing is, with this sled it would not be the first place to look for an issue anyway. Iridium upgrade is good everyone has to go in there to check the valve clearance eventually so change the plugs at that time as well as clean the air box etc. High tech toys are lots of work to keep mint, but as long as I am not down in the dead of winter I like work on the sleds in the off season. My sled has had minimal issues and they were all easy fixes. There is a split airbox upgrade to allow access to the plugs.

The oil and filter on all cat sleds are easy to get to.

On the turbo sleds plugs can be extracted with the pod off, and a U-joint. The non turbos require the gas tank and air box to be removed.

I figured you could get to it with just the pod off but it did look like you needed to remove the intercooler manifold. Guess I assumed wrong. Thanks Krom

I am very disapointed with Arctic Cats engineering on this one. I had to get assistance to try to align up the boots on the carb. No room! I used a mirror to see under the airbox which helped out alot. Someone said Actic cat had a upgrade by a separated air box, this one separates side to side. Not sure if this was the upgrade but if it is they can shove it up there ass and re up grade it. I have been a Cat fan for over 20 yrs, but I am considering making the jump.

I heard that if u tip them over, u have to do the same thing, remove plugs airbox etc. What happens if ure in the U.P and tip it on its side. HMMMM..... UR F*&^%

The Z1 engines are using "Dry Sump" oil system. Tipping to a side, for a short time, does not harm engine oil system.
