A lot of guys seem surprised about the need for suspension tuning, adding iso to gas, problems with 1st year sleds, etc. I am curious how many years experience the average HCS member has...Marc

27 years, been riding ever since filling the diaper. Thanks for starting me off right pop! Plus got over 350 miles on the F7 SP She rips, I am still fine tuning it to my riding style. Gotta say one guy a Yamaha die hard rode it, and I asked him what do you think about it going through the bumps, he says "What Bumps ?" Enough said!

Well let's put it this way. I remember when Merc twisters were unbeatable. And when the Polaris Centurion Crushed at the Regina Minot 250 cross country!

Still wish I could get one of those twisters!
:lol:

I am with you on that joe, I really want to get into the vintage stuff bad. There is one place you can contact that has quite a few twisters which is Image enterprises in Eagle River, WI. They purchased all the inventory from Merc when they gave up on the sleds after the '76 model year.

my cross countryhad the softest suspention of any sled i had ever been on. i have probaly only rode 15 sleds, but that didn't even take a bump to bottom. it would bottom going fast up a incline. had it to the dealer twice. saw in magazines that that was happening to all cc. no problems with my f7 as of yet.

4 years. Grew up in Michigan, Dad would never buy me a sled. At 17 moved to South Carolina - no snow there. Moved back to Michigan 4 years ago and bought my first sled - 88 Phazer. Next year a 91 Exciter II and then a 93 Indy 600 triple. Last Year bought a Zl 700 brand new and a ZL 550 for the girlfriend. This year a Black Standard F - 7. Love the sled !!!

I've been riding snowmobiles for 32 years. My wife tells me that I'm obsessed with snowmobiling.

Glad to hear that people still respect the Merc Twisters. There are 4 of them sitting in the garage right now....(2) 76 440T/T's and (2) 76 S/T's and a whole mess of parts. Too bad Merc got out of the buisness. I believe that they would have still been light years ahead of Arctic Cat, Yammi, Ski-Donkey, and Polaris. Funny how I appreciate a snowmobile that is older than I am!!
