I think with the fuel in the ethanol position there should be some room for minor mods like reeds but that is about it, but I'm no pro, its just a guess

Words from arctic cat is DON`T F*** With THIS SLED.

They even suggest no clutching.
A mechanic from rochester that is an expert clutcher worked on the F cat for 4 hrs and was only able to get 1 horse out of them. These things are dialed in from factory.

Suggest no clutching? Why on earth not? BTW clutching does not increase horsepower unless you are using a track dyno. I think several people have proved clutching can be improved upon, although stock clutching is pretty good as an all round setup.

All manufacturers tell you not to modify anything on all their sleds or it will void warranty. This is nothing new, doesn't mean gains cannot be found. They still have the same warranty on these sleds as all their others so they are not as "on the edge" as everyone thinks.

Same warranty as all the others? Are you sure about that?? Didn't many of the Cats (at least for spring orders) have a 2 year warranty? Doesn't Polaris have a 2 year warranty (or 5000 miles... see the fine print!) on their motors? And Yamaha a 3 year warranty? I dunno 'bout you, but I only got a 1 year warranty on my F7, but when you really think about it, it's really only a 4 month warranty... and that's if we have a LONG winter!!! -- Roy

I'm not saying there safe but I put them in and have some sort wide open runs in the grass and the switch is in the REGULAR position and the plugs are not even close to lean and there is a ton of piston wash.

Is it very hard to install them? Also what about the reed spacers how are they?

going to leave my stock..... like the get on and ride, and not have to mess with anything... The poo boys around here, sno check a sled, put three k in it before it leaves the dealer, and spends half the time along the side of the mountain, waiting for it to cool down, or it wont run, due to much powder cooling off the pipes.....

F7 is plenty good to go stock for the idaho mountain and trails.... god help all them tricked out RMKs that are going down this winter

I think you could have received a 2 year warranty on your F7 as well. If you spring ordered and did not choose a special graphics package I think you got a 2 year warranty.

You had to purchase the 2nd year warrenty if you purchased a F series sled, it was available for 400.00. Even if you spring ordered a F series sled there still was only a 1 year warrenty. If you purchased any other model you would recieve a 2 year warrenty in a spring order. Just my understanding of this, Les......
