Sorry, the title is suppose to read F7 Fired Up and Ready to Rock. After the Up Dates!

After 2 months or research and buying the F7 I took it out for a break in cruise. Boy was I upset over the way this thing performed next to my XCSP 700. (PLease read Thaigons F7 after thoughts)

Then while taking the sled into Bright Kawasaki for up dates a customer turned around in the parking lot and yelled, "Hey Firecat, Hardcoresledder.com. Read it!" and left.

After reading this site and getting all the up dates completed I installed some add ons. The temp gauge is the most usefull. I learned to warm the sled up to 105 degrees before running and new when the damn thing was heating up so I could cool it down.

The tank bag was great for the long ride and I didn't have to pull the map out. Other Cat riders walked up and wanted to take a look.

After breaking 3 ropes I found Jeff G. and his rope pull fix. OK, I heard Arctic Cat sold over 15000 F series sleds. All should have this fix! Not a damn problem after this UP GRADE! Thanks Jeff! 7 Days of riding and still on the same cord with no wear and tear!!!!

The rear tank bag was helpfull for extra cloths and drinks and tools. I also think it dresses up the rear of the sled. Another favorite among the cat owners I met on the trail.

As for the ride and engine. Well Bright did a good job adjusting the cables and APV valves. You see I whooped the S&^T out of all the other riders in my group. 2002 Edge XCSP 700, Ski-Doo 600 H.O. 2003 and a Pro X 800 Polaris 2002. I had a top speed of 106Mph and was slowed down by the trail. I added an Iso-vibe and Simmon Flexi-Ski's. These ski's are great!

350 miles on the F7 and no problems thanks to this site and you guys! I hope everything holds up!

Hmmm, Iso-vibe? Well I installed it the same time the ski's went on. When I hit the hard bumps I didn't feel it as much in the wrists. Was it the Iso-vibe or the Flexi-Ski's? I like it any way, the vibration from the sled was almost absent!

THE END! Cut the flap, cutting it not only keeps it from getting sucked into the track but keeps people from ridding your tail! Also leaves a little more snow in the air when you roost the tailgatter. LOL :D
