Hey Firecracker

All I have to say is LOL

Guys get out and enjoy this sled because it absolutley kicks ass. Don't let all this stuff about blowing engines and stuff bother you. Remember that there was 15000 Firecats made. Some are bound to have problems. Go out and have fun thats what you bought it for.

I was getting nervous and ancy about all these negative posts, but after getting out you will forget all the negative and beat the bejesus out of her, thats what it is made for. It is an awesome sled with power that will freak you out. OK enough of this because I am starting to soundlike Firecracker. lol lol

Talk to ya

Wait your problems are all comming, first I had to have my 01 ZR 600 rebuilt because the ehaust valve sucked in thru the piston, then I had the chain case leak fixed 4 times and 3 new rear shocks so my dealer convinced me to get an 02 ZR 600 Cross country. Well the belly pan stickers peeled off 5 times, the rear springs have been replaced twice, I am waiting for a rear shock on back order, and this weekend I have a short in the wiring w/ no headlight and the front skid adjustable shock & spring combo broke COMPLETELY off the sled, as in it is no longer on the sled,its somewhere in tug hill. Yeah my dealer always fixes it, but isn't this excessive. Change the situation, you bought a new truck and parts keep falling off, and the motor blew, but hey the parts are on backorder and you don't really need your truck anyways..............right?

Put the back up on a jack stand, Rev it to around 8000 RPMs. Kick the Jack Stand out, and Run like the Wind...............................your sled will be another County in about 5 seconds.................................
