-21 Must be time to get Sled Ready

I hooked up the battery and did the pre-season check on the sled yesterday I usually don't touch the sled until rivers and creeks are froze hard but with the cold temps it was time. Sled started right off and ran great. Just add fuel and oil and I'm ready to ride!
If I'm ready everyone else must be...anyone not yet?

I'm ready. But did mine when the temp's were still above zero. Being 4-stroke mine got an oil / filter change, chain case flush and adjust, zerks greased, new belt, wash and wax and battery put back in.
Off to insurance this morning for reg. and snowpass.

rjsnowdrifter -- drained my old fuel from 2015 as I did not drive a mile in 2016

new fuel in the baby .. two pulls and it smoked like a two stroke

temp came up and after being warmed up ... pulled the baby into the garage

Next thing will be to change pulls .. grease it up .. top up fuel .. change plate to orange .. we are ready to ride

I usually start my 10 year old Yamaha a few times over the summer, top up the battery with a charge or two but about two weeks back when I lifted the lid of the trailer and fired her up you should have seen the look on my face when that mouse shot out of the exhaust like a human cannonball.
Never seen that before!

Stuff the exhaust pipe with steel wool when you park it. Problem solved

Well we will have to get out and put some miles on it this year. (That's kilometers for the younger ones)
I went and fueled and added oil today. Ready to roll
