Allrighty, last year I was Idling along close to my house and not paying attention hit a small bump head on with one ski. I hit the brake and the sled rolled on its side. After getting up, I turn off the engine and attempt to roll it back over. All of a sudden I hear a loud backfire and some fire shoots out the exhaust. Problem is, the small flame turns into a bigger one as the sled catches on fire. We put out the fire pretty quickly and get the sled in my garage where its been sitting for a while now dealing with dealer, Arctic Cat and warranty issues. We've decided to give up on all that and try to fix it ourselves if its not too difficult. We know there are some melted hoses and wires that need to be replaced but is there anything else to check out.

Keep in mind that this was a small fire that was put out quickly and most of the damage just appears to be a few melted wires, hoses, etc..

Thanks!

pics please

sled is bone stock?

i guess its possible if you had oil or spilled fuel in the belly pan, maybe a leak?

you could easily spill oil when refilling and have it end up down by the can etc...

stock jetting?

Warranty issues? Why should this be covered under warranty? It is a simple accident that would not have happened if the sled was not tipped over. It doesn't sound like any kind of manufacturer defect unless there is a legitimate prblem that caused the fire. Forgive me for playing the devil's advocate here, but there are way to many frivilous warranty claims just like the stupid lawsuits out there. :m2c:
