Thanks for the info
We may have been in the same areas with similar conditions this past weekend. I had scratchers and was running 121-127. I decided to see what it would run at for a short bit and took the scratchers up and it went up to 147. I'd just throw those on and you should be good to go!

First time I rode mine it went up to 159. Then after that I never saw more than 135. 90% of the time its a constant 125. 625 miles. I have RSI scratchers but haven't used them yet. 1.352 and no studs.

Where did you ride this past weekend?
I rode on Bear Notch Road in Bartlette NH. I was supposed to go up to Presque Isle Maine, but, as you know, they barely have any snow since the thaw.

I think another reason my sled was running warm is because, it had 0 miles on it, so that motor was real tight.

That is how mine was, like I said, I think another reason why my sled was running hot is because my engine had 0 miles on it.

Good to know.. I heard the problem with those cables are, they don't apply enough pressure.

I think I will try them out because, I am a dummy sometimes, and knowing my luck, I will have them down, and put my sled in reverse.

I haven't tried the cable ones. I made it 1500 miles without wrecking the wire ones. They are tough too. Rocks, stumps, alders etc. Don't even have to think about the fact that they are down. I replaced them this season just because the ends were a little worn.

Gotcha, I thought you might have been in Maine this weekend. We were Rangeley to Bosebuck for trails, then went off trail for most of the day. Don't believe all the doomsdayers...we found plenty of good snow, and even buried one of the sleds in a few feet of powder at one point. It's there- you just gotta leave trail to get it.

On the temp thing, I do remember running higher temps when I was first in break in, so nothing to be worried about.

Oh, and at one point we ran into another group of guys and two had SBAs- one had a '13 with the 2" like yours and said it was twice the sled than the 1.3 track...which frankly I can't imagine because even with the 1.3 I was doing some stuff that I never thought I'd be able to do.

I am thinking about going up to Jackman or Rangeley this weekend.. I have the 1.3 by the way.. That 2 inch lug is overkill for the type of riding I do.

As for riding in New Hampshire, to tell you the truth, I fucking hate it.. The fish cops hiding behind the bushes ready to give tickets out like it's candy

That is why I prefer to ride in Maine, no speed limit.

Sorry about that- got confused. I will say that if you're going to go off trail Rangeley will be a good bet (we'll be up there again), and the trails are okay. Grab some scratchers and you'll be good to go. Maybe we'll see you up there!
