75 miles and still praying to the sled gods! No problems, just took a ton of precautions.(Still not sure if I like having to do this on a BRAND NEW sled though!) Not bitchin', just hoping that the tides don't turn!
My only problem is that I can't turn left as much as I can turn right. I guess that the steering braket was welded incorrectly. AC does not have the parts yet! I have to left the rear end when I want to make tight turns to the left.
Hmm.. Well, I had this small bubble in the coolant. Started as not a big deal, but, then it cooked my engine :blink: I got that fixed, and I rode it for 80 miles or so, and the only problem I think I can Find is that the pull rope is rubbing on the frame, but that was SUPPOSED to be fixed while the had my sled.
On my buddy's F7 (RED Saber SnoPro), The damn Front shocks are installed on the WRONG FRIGGIN SIDES. If you look at them, the bonehead that installed them put the remote reservior inlet on the INSIDE of the shocks
(left shock on Right side....Right shock on LEFT side -- think about & look at yours, seems IMPOSSIBLE until you move the reservior SOOO FAR that theres enough play in cable)
The only other thing is that the oil bottle cap will not stay on at all. we removed it to check injector level, and now it wont go back on :wacko:
MOSTLY JUST MINOR THINGS AS YOU CAN PLAINLY SEE :wacko: h34r:
But, the hood cables are both cutting into the airbox...I've only opened the hood a few times, and it is already cutting in severely. Is there a fix for this? (other than me moving the mounts? Other than that, front of hood rubs on belly pan when opening. Haven't had time to cause any serious damage yet!!! No (snow in the midwest...(minneapolis.)
Picked mine uo last Saturday, it had all the updates on even the pull cord. Dealer performed the new burping procedure, also did it myself a couple of times. Checked it all over and ran 115 miles with no running problems, the only thing noticed was black oil coming from between the exhaust y pipe to the cylinder (PTO side). Removed the y pipe last night and found there was no gasket on that side. AC must have dropped it at the factory.
150 - 170 miles on two F-7 std. pull cord on one, then got both fixed, dealer did all the burping so that's taken care of, Oil light came on both of them with the oil just below the throat of the oil tank...8 oz to fill... oil light started flashing, then the dash and headlights flashed, then the sled died. Put oil in and runs ok.. now seems to have a bogging problem. Besides that the sled is a great sled. I expect to have some bugs on a first year production sled so I'm definatley not unhappy with the two sleds. we will see what the year brings.
