Thank you! Made it through after about a week of feeling absolutely dead. I went back to work today and had forgotten I’d even ordered the sticker for the other side panel, but it was in too!
I started off by installing the last few exhaust springs.
I brought home my custom made fuel pump harness to prime the air out of the system.
Installed the matching sticker on the right hand side fender.
Then fired it up and drive it outside to perform break in! I have a video of the first start if I can figure out a way to upload and post it here.
The machine runs great! The TPS or idle is set a little bit low, so I’ll be bringing my work laptop and cable home tomorrow to give that a reset and do a quick check to make sure there are no other hidden issues.
It pulls very well just around the yard, so I’m excited to see what it does in an open play area! I’m also interested to see if my estimated clutch settings turned out to be spot on or need adjusting. The girlfriend and I may go out on Sunday or Monday, and if that’s happens I’ll be sure to post the ride results here!
Always liked that q drive system. Just seems so efficient and don't know why it is not used more by oem. Many positives in my books. I mean big deal if you snap a belt. Seen broken chains make way more of a mess to fix.
I didn’t get a chance to try it at the end of last season. The snow melted locally too quickly and I had to get it into the enclosed trailer before it got put into storage. I’ve been doing what seems like a ground up restoration on the plow truck all summer, but once that’s done I’ll be bringing the sled back in for the final tweaks!
Been incredibly busy and had some life changing events happen, but despite that, the sled is still here! I finally got a chance to yard the sled out of the enclosed trailer and get the TPS set for a better idle.
I ordered up some decals from various 2020 sleds as they had a few new ones I thought fit the color scheme well. The "ASSAULT" is from the 2020 SBA tank decal, and the "146" is from the Indy Anniversary SKS. This is officially the only PRO Switchback Assault in existence! Now, she's ready to ride!
Unfortunately, it's currently -27*F so I'm going to wait until it warms up and the snow softens for a good test ride. Next week looks pretty promising!
So over a year later, I finally got a chance to take it out on the first ride! I definitely need to back off the Primary weight a bit and possibly dial in the springs a bit more, but this thing still takes off like a rocket. I have never owned a sled that can hook, plant, and launch like this one will. This is THE sled Polaris should have built. The silver sled in the pictures is a stock 2015 SBA and there is no comparison between the two. I cannot even describe what an amazing combo this entire package is. I buried it twice and fell off once so it was a great ride. Can’t wait to get the clutching dialed in and take it out again.
Well, moving on to other stuff! Absolute blast to ride though! Recently changed jobs here, and decided to focus on some other projects, mainly my Exocet car. Put the sled up for sale and hopefully she’ll find a loving home.
Looking for a complete used 800 engine for a 14 pro rmk 800. I plan on rebuilding myself but if you have one with good parts in it for the right price I may be interested. Also I will be needing the computer and wiring harness as well if anyone has a hook on those. Let me know thanks
I have a 2014 pro rmk 800 with 1500 miles on it that uses a ton of oil. I’m using about a tank of oil per tank of gas. And it runs like garbage. Bogs way down until it finds the courage to run right and then it takes off like a rocket. I brought it to a Polaris dealer last year and they said it...
I have a 2011 pro rmk 800 that I ran all winter and it didn't have any problems really. My kids had been using it mostly so i dont know when it started losing rpm. Well I was testing it in my garage with the track off the ground and it wont hold wot rpms. If I blip the throttle it will hit 8200...
2011 Indy Specialitys SBA 800 motor and complete under hood wiring harness from my donor sled. (This sled did not have the electric start option on it.) I used the 2011 motor wiring harness because the 2013 harness is not compatible with the 2011 fuel injection system. Everything...
