That's awesome. I would have rode farther today if my fuel light didn't start flashing.

Does your spare fuel container clip on the back like your last one? You have to keep some spare fuel for those Polaris's that run with you!!

Not yet but for the clubs to get their first payment signage is supposed to be in by December 15. I was running on our farmland doing break-in.

too early for a comparison yet

The ECM is still in break-in mode so can't compare engines and as far as ride comfort I was running on our perfectly flat rolled pinto bean fields working on the 6 hour break-in sequence. Once the season gets going and I start riding "real world" conditions..you know those mogul infested trails ha..ha...then we'll see.

Hey rjsnowdrifter -- I am thankful that RWS hauls extra fuel ..

I remember our last ride with RWS,

When we fueled up in Kenora after the long haul around the back-end
from Falcon to Bird Lake and Kenora

Our sleds hung in and did not need the extra fuel

Trapper on his yamaha - topped the fuel
rjsnowdrifter you came in second with fuel

Now as I drag this out for one more mins

I thought to my self well did I use more fuel them RWS
I know that I did not run out of fuel like a few years ago
Short by one mile

Good thing I fueled that Polaris to the top .. Otherwise I might have been
done

I came in third with Fuel
RWS ended using the most fuel ( but did not run out )

RWS -- Christmas is coming soon .. if the gas tank does not fix correctly
new straps will be under the Christmas tree

RWS -- I see the dashboard is smaller on this sled -- going to be harder to get GPS and Spot located -- Are you setting up the command start as to the other sled ?

The GPS will be mounted off the top of the handlebar clamp and there is plenty of room on the dash for the SPOT satellite tracker....both will be mounted as on my 2015. Fuel tank would mount up too but I don't plan on putting it on. Haven't added an automotive remote start since a couple of sleds ago. And no plans for studs at this time. Some of the accessories I ordered are starting to come in and I'm wiring up for always hot power for the GPS, electric face shield, usb battery charger (helmet cam) and a couple of LED courtesy lights today.

Yes that was a test of fuel endurance, as well as a great ride. Twice I have pulled in to a fuel station and put in 11 US gallons (41.12 liters for the younger folk) Now that is what my manual says is total fuel capacity. However I have added 42 liters in the fall when the tank is empty so you can judge for yourself. My sled has always been hard on fuel, but since I did the top end and replaced a cracked reed valve, the fuel economy and power has improved.

rjsnowdrifter

My best sled for fuel was my 440 polaris sport... could ride for ever ...

Then my 2005 fusion 900 -- the power that baby ... Steering on the lake was not good ... Fuel was only good for that 100 miles ...

Then my 2009 IQ 800 ... it has power , but not as fast as if Fusion 900 ... Steering is much better ... Fuel Mileage well all I can say is that
on that long ride I needed to top the baby to the top... we made that trip with out running out
