I'm just curious with all the problems posted here about the firecats, what people are feeling about spending this much money.I bought my wife a F-7 red team arctic & have had no problems with it other than the snowflap & the fact that it eat's my ZR800 alive. The other thing I noticed is the second problem causes her to beat on her chest & chant "I'm #1 " all the damn time. I talked to my dealer and he told me that AC knows about the problem & has yet to come up with a inexpensive fix for it. I guess for now I will have to deal with it.

You need a category for us guys who have few miles on their sleds and have not formed an opinion yet! j/k

I really do like the looks of my firecat and how it handles sitting on the garage floor!

This poll is going pretty much like I thought it would. My wife wants me to go out & check something almost every day....I don't find anything wrong but hey, it can't hurt to check.I think part of the whole situation might be people from the other sides trying to stir up a bunch of crap.I could be wrong, ya never know. We don't have alot of miles it but it has not given so much as a fart the wrong way.The snowflap was minor,it has extra vent holes from the picks, but its minor problems are part of snowmobiling, no matter how old or new a sled is.

Great Sled, totaled the first one and walked away, 100MPH I fell off, sled barrel rolled twice, than two end overs. Next F7 I liked as much as the first one! I drive a little slower?

Got my F7 on Friday, put 350 excellent miles on it with no problems. It will destroy my zl 800 from start to fininsh. I have ridden all of the new machines this year and it is by far the most impressive. It is also one of the best riding machines I have ridden. I love my Firecat.
