Reverse Kit

I got my reverse kit home to day. Was thinking about putting it on my self. There is a lot of parts, a new chain
case cover and a lot of other stuff. The shift lever goes
to the right of the pull rope. the reverse alarm goes opp
of the key on the efi models. You need the lever kit and
the reverse kit to make it work. You also get a new
black snow flap and a new reverse decal that covers
the old decal on your dash. They say you need a reverse gear adj gauge pn0644-244 to adj the reverse linkage.
It weights about 5 to 7 pounds. It shoud be worth it's
weight in gold out on a trail.

Only $540 and just think, it will only add, how much weight total???
I top the scales at about 200 Lbs. and cannot imagine adding any more weight to my F7 Sabercat SnoPro than my fat ass.
Just my 10 cents worth but don't forget, speed is a ratio between horespower and weight or weight and horsepower, some shit like that.
Too late to get technical right now but you know what I mean

hvf7, for sure, to each his own, all I know is I bought my F7 for what it is, an out of the box racer.
I will not be adding any weight to mine as weight equals less speed and when you are only looking at 500 feet each pound is very important.
I ride in the mountains as well and thats one place you do not want any extra poundage. (have trup planned for Jan. 2 to 10)
My wifes Poo has reverse and it is real handy but I am talking about an Indy Classic Touring sled EFI, electric start, and all the bells and whistles. This pig weighs in at more than I can lift or dig out. It does have a 136" x 2" track but she is still real heavy in the fluffy stuff.
If I was concerned with my heart, which I should be, I would not have bought a Firecat to start with and would consider having reverse on whatever I buy.
Have a great day

Actually, I was talking about "between the lights or in 6 feet of powder".
You are correct about the extra weight of fuel, but oil is weight I can live with. When you race in a two day event and get beat by 5/10 or .5 of a second by a guy you beat last week, it makes you wonder about that Big Muck from Ronnies with the supersize pop and fries x 2 and a couple beers when the pop is gone.
But it is OK you just ran your sled hard for two days, had no real sleed and drank no beer, now you just blew the last race and the $1.5 or 2 K prize money not to mention the pounding of the cheast thing.
I just think my sled should watch it's waist also.
Like my last post started out to each his own.
Don't get me wrong I don't want to pick a fight, just stating facts.
Why do you think SnoPro's other than these Firecats all had/have clear tanks?
This is a trick question,,,, so be careful.

Apology accepted.
And don't be afraid to say I was wrong. (meaning you of course). It is OK to be wrong but not afraid.
Thanks for the humor today Wicked, it got me through another boring lunch hour.
Without running to Ronnies for a smiley meal.
"To see how much fuel you have left as well as make sure you do not put in more than you need"
Have a great day

PS webmaster I think I should get brownie points for ending this banter before it got bitter.
