INTRODUCTION Preservation of the Environment Teach your child to drive their snowmobile with consideration for the protection and preservation of the environment... Noise One of the most publicized subjects with regard to snowmobiles is noise... The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), which is the stan- dard-setting body for snowmobiles, has recommended that snowmobiles conform to prescribed sound levels... This Polaris snowmobile has been engineered to conform to these SAE standards... In order to be meaningful, all regulations require the cooperation of the snowmobile owner... Muffling systems, designed to reduce noise levels, should not be altered or removed... Snowmobile drivers must be aware that they have a public responsibility to operate their snowmobiles with concern for others... As a snowmobile operator you may not realize the sound of your snowmobile may annoy non-snowmobilers... We are attempting to do our part through the manufacture of quieter machines, and we also ask your help in the effort to further reduce the impact of noise... Air Pollution As a part of Polaris' plan for the snowmobile's compatibility within the environment, our engineers are investigating ways to reduce emission levels of engines... We expect our efforts to lead to the reduction of potential air pollution... The four-stroke engine used in this snowmobile produces less exhaust emissions and reduces noise, as well... In addition to technological research, we also suggest that governmental agencies, manufacturers, distributors, dealers, ecologists, and other interested parties work together to develop data on environmental top- ics... We will continue to participate in this type of study so that someday we may find the answers to these difficult issues...

Page 9

INTRODUCTION Preservation of the Environment Environmental Protection As part of the continuing environmental education campaign, we are encouraging state and provincial governments across the snowbelt to adopt rigorous safety training programs which also encourage protec- tion of our environment, wildlife and vegetation... Snowmobile clubs and other organizations are working together to protect our environment... It is very important that we encourage them as well as become actively involved ourselves... Protect and preserve your right to ride by joining your local trail riding clubs... Teach your child the following: Respect your snowmobile; respect your environment; and you will earn the respect of everyone...

Page 10

INTRODUCTION Vehicle Identification Numbers Record your snowmobile's identification numbers and key number in the spaces provided... Remove the spare key and store it in a safe place... Your key can be duplicated only by mating a Polaris key blank with one of your existing keys, so if both keys are lost, the ignition switch must be replaced...

Page 11

SAFETY The following signal words and symbols appear throughout this manual and on your vehicle... Your safety is involved when these words and sym- bols are used... Become familiar with their meanings before reading the manual...

Page 12

Equipment Modifications All Polaris snowmobiles have been designed and tested to provide safe operation when used as directed... Failure of critical machine components may result from operation with any modification; especially those that increase speed or power... There is a significant possibility of loss of con- trol at higher speeds... We are concerned for the safety of our customers and for the general public... Any modifications to the original equipment of the vehicle cre- ate a substantial safety hazard and increase the risk of bodily injury... Therefore, we strongly recommend that consumers do not install on a Polaris snowmobile any equipment that may increase the speed or power of the vehicle, or make any other modifications to the vehicle for these purposes... The warranty on your Polaris snowmobile is terminated if any equip- ment has been added to the vehicle, or if any modifications have been made to the vehicle, that increase its speed or power...

SAFETY Maintenance Program This snowmobile is not a toy... The information in this manual is pro- vided to aid you in its safe operation... For the safety of the operator, always make sure that the snowmobile is in excellent operating condition at all times... We strongly recommend that the operator, as well as an adult, check major and vital safety com- ponents before each use of the vehicle... We also recommend that you strictly follow the maintenance schedule outlined in this manual to ensure that all critical components on the snowmobile are thoroughly inspected by your dealer at various mileage intervals...

Page 14

SAFETY Safety Decals Safety and warning decals have been placed on the vehicle for the oper- ator's protection... Make sure the operator understands the information on all decals... If any decal becomes illegible or comes off, contact your Polaris dealer for a replacement... Replacement safety decals are provided by Polaris at no charge... The part number is printed on the decal... General Warning Decal WARNING

YOUTH SECTION Know Your Snowmobile Let's learn more about the parts of your snowmobile before we learn about riding...

Page 18

YOUTH SECTION Know Your Snowmobile Hood The hood covers the moving and hot parts of the engine... Always make sure the hood is securely latched before you ride... Headlight The headlight is always on when the engine is running... It helps others see you when you're riding during daylight, but it's not meant to be strong enough to help you see in the dark... Drive your snowmobile only in the daylight... Windshield Always keep your windshield clean so you can see through it... Handlebar The handlebar is connected to the skis... When you turn the handlebar, the skis turn in the same direction... Flag The flag helps other people see where you are... Your snowmobile is smaller than an adult snowmobile, so it's harder to see... Never remove the flag from your snowmobile... Seat and Storage When the engine is stopped, you can take the seat cushion off and put things under the seat in the special compartment... Taillight The taillight is always on when the engine is running... It will help others see you when you're riding... Snow Flap The snow flap keeps snow, ice or other things from flying out behind your snowmobile... Track When you squeeze the throttle lever, the track turns and makes the snowmobile move forward...

Page 19

Let's review the 3 ways to stop your snowmobile: 1... Push the stop switch down... 2... Pull the tether strap off the switch... 3... Turn the key off...

Page 20

YOUTH SECTION Pre-Ride Check You're almost ready to have an adult start your snowmobile... But first you must do a PRE-RIDE CHECK to make sure the snowmobile is safe to ride... Every time you want to ride your snowmobile, always have an adult help you check these things before you start the engine... n Throttle Lever Squeeze the throttle lever toward the handlebar and then let it go... The lever should go right back to where it was before you squeezed it... If it goes back slowly or stays close to the handlebar, you have a sticky throt- tle... This means that something is wrong or broken...

Page 21

Have an adult check the gas level to see if your snowmobile needs more gas... Children should never open the gas cap or add gas... Always have an adult do this... Before anyone adds gas to your snowmobile they must read the instructions and warnings on page 43 in this Owner's Manual... n Oil Level Have an adult check the engine oil level when the engine is cold... The engine is very hot after it has been running... It could burn your skin... Children should never check the oil... Always have an adult do this... n 3 Ways to STOP Always check to make sure that ALL 3 WAYS TO STOP are working the way they should... Do you remember what they are? Follow these steps: 1... Start the engine... Push the stop switch down... The engine should

YOUTH SECTION Riding Rules Now you're ready to learn about driving your Polaris snowmobile... This snowmobile is not a toy... There are some things you can do and there are some things you must never do... Rules are very important when you're driving a snowmobile... Adults have riding rules, too... The rules help keep us safe when we ride... You must be at least six (6) years old before you can ride this snowmo- bile... The adult with you is your teacher... Always pay attention to what your teacher says so you can learn how to always drive safely... Let's learn how to ride!

Page 23

" Always wear the right kind of clothing when you ride your snowmo- bile... Always wear a helmet with a face shield or goggles... Wear a warm jacket and snowpants... Make sure your clothing fits properly... Tight clothing could keep you from moving easily... Baggy clothing could hang down and get caught in the track or another moving part... Never wear a long scarf... Wear warm snowmobile boots and gloves, and make sure your boot laces are tied... If you have long hair, tie it up or put it inside your helmet or jacket...

Page 24

Keep both feet on the running boards... " Never follow another snowmobile too closely... Always allow lots of

ation... The engine should stop immediately... n Inspect the track... See page 28... n Make sure the seat is securely attached... n Make sure the hood is latched... n Make sure the track and skis are not frozen to the ground... n Check the gas and oil levels for the rider... Add more if necessary... n Make sure the headlight and taillight are working properly... These checks should become automatic for the child before each ride... As the adult teacher, you must instill in all riders the importance of per- forming this Pre-Ride Check before they operate the snowmobile...

Page 27

n Check the throttle for proper operation When checking the throttle, make sure the throttle lever compresses evenly and smoothly... When the lever is released, it should immediately return to the idle position without binding or hesitation... If the throttle does not function smoothly, do not start the engine... Have the throttle serviced before operating the snowmobile... n Check the brake for proper operation Squeeze the brake lever toward the handlebar... When the lever is released, it should return to its original position smoothly... If the lever hesitates or seems sticky, do not start the engine... Have the brakes ser- viced before operating the snowmobile... See page 31 for brake lever travel specifications... n Check for proper operation of the steering system Check for proper operation of the steering system... Manually turn the skis completely to the right and to the left... If difficulty is encountered, check for ice and snow buildup that may be obstructing the steering linkage... Make sure all greaseable components are properly lubricated...

Page 28

ADULT SECTION Pre-Ride Check n Check the throttle safety switch Test the throttle safety switch system on a daily basis before the vehicle is used... With the engine idling, hold the throttle lever pin stationary by exerting pressure on the pivot pin in the direction shown in the illustration... Apply a slight amount of throttle opening... A properly functioning switch must shut down the engine... The throttle safety switch is designed to stop the engine whenever all pressure is removed from the throttle lever and the throttle cable or valve does not return to the normal closed position... If excessive play develops in the throttle cable, the safety switch may be activated and will prevent the engine from starting... If the engine doesn't start and throttle safety switch malfunction is suspected, return the machine to an authorized Polaris dealer for service... If an adult must start the engine in an emergency situ- ation, the throttle safety switch and engine stop switch may be discon- nected from the wire harness... In this situation, the ignition key switch must be used to shut off the engine... Be sure to reconnect the safety switches and have the snowmobile serviced before operating the vehicle again...

Page 29

ADULT SECTION Pre-Ride Check n Inspect the track Driving for extended periods of time with marginal lubrication could severely damage the track... Driving on icy trails or driving when there is little or no snow are two examples of situations that would provide mar- ginal lubrication and are not recommended... Do not operate the snowmo- bile with a damaged track...

Page 30

WARNING The drive chain guard is designed to protect the operator from metal parts in the event of a drive chain failure... Although the chance of failure is extremely remote, do not defeat the purpose of the guard by removing it... It is provided for the safety of the child...

Page 31

WARNING Safe operation of this rider-active vehicle requires good judgement and physi- cal skills... Persons with cognitive or physical disabilities who operate this vehi- cle have an increased risk of overturns and loss of control, which could result in serious injury or death...

Page 32

ADULT SECTION Operation Warnings n Check brake lever travel Depress the brake lever fully... Mea- sure the clearance between the lever and brake block... Clearance should be no more than 3/4" (1... 9 cm)... Excessive travel indicates a need to adjust the brake cable... Refer to the mechanical brake adjustment infor- mation on page 56... n Secure the hood The hood of the snowmobile protects the operator from moving and hot parts as well as aiding in sound emission control and other functions... Never operate a snowmobile with the hood open or removed... n Remove the ignition key Don't tempt someone to steal or ride your snowmobile without permis- sion by leaving the key in the ignition... Always remove the key and store it in a safe location... n Check lights Start the engine and ensure that both the headlight and taillight operate...

Page 33

ADULT SECTION Operation Warnings n Check surroundings Make sure the operation area is clear of obstacles and bystanders... Some sideways movement is possible when the snowmobile first begins to move, and debris may be thrown by the track... Teach the operator to check the operating area before riding... n Sit properly on the snowmobile Operating a snowmobile requires skill and balance for proper control... An improper position can reduce the child's ability to control the snow- mobile... The riding position may vary as the operator becomes more skilled, but under most conditions the proper position is to be seated with both feet on the running boards, in a comfortable position for proper throttle, brake and steering control...

Page 34

ADULT SECTION Operation Warnings n Always wear clothing designed for snowmobiling Always make sure the operator is wearing an approved helmet and eye protection... Do not allow the child to wear loose clothing or long scarves because they can easily become entangled in moving parts... If your child has long hair, be sure it is always tied up securely and tucked into the helmet or jacket... Helmet Wearing a helmet can prevent a severe head injury... Whenever riding a Polaris vehicle, always wear a helmet that meets or exceeds established safety standards... Approved helmets in the USA and Canada bear a U... S... Department of Transportation (DOT) label... Approved helmets in Europe, Asia and Oceania bear the ECE 22... 05 label... The ECE mark consists of a circle surrounding the letter E, followed by the distinguishing number of the country which has granted approval... The approval number and serial number will also be displayed on the label... Eye Protection Do not depend on eyeglasses or sunglasses for eye protection... When- ever riding a Polaris vehicle, always wear shatterproof goggles or use a shatterproof helmet face shield... Polaris recommends wearing approved Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) bearing markings such as VESC 8, V-8, Z87... 1, or CE... Make sure protective eye wear is kept clean...

Page 35

n Know limitations of machine and skills of driver The operator should be aware that most areas have laws governing snowmobile operation and that these laws should be followed... They have been established for the protection of all snowmobile riders... Many local organizations offer a snowmobile safety course for children... Check with local authorities to locate providers of this service... This vehicle is intended for daylight use only... Check both the headlight and taillight to ensure proper operation... IMPORTANT: The headlight and taillight are intended only to increase the visibility of the snowmobile during daylight operation... Do not oper- ate this snowmobile in the dark...

Page 36

ADULT SECTION Operation Warnings n Instruct all operators Teach all young drivers to always be alert and to pay attention to the driving area ahead... When teaching inexperienced operators to ride, set up a predetermined course... Establish boundaries and make sure all oper- ators know and understand them... Make sure they know how to drive and control the snowmobile before you allow them to drive longer super- vised distances... Teach them proper snowmobile courtesy... It's a good idea to predetermine some hand signals as a way to commu- nicate with a child while giving instruction... It may be difficult for a child to hear your voice over the sound of the snowmobile and through a helmet... Teach the operator that the sound of the engine will make it difficult to hear the sound of approaching vehicles... Do not allow a child to operate the snowmobile on or near roads and railroad tracks... Teach operators what it means to drive defensively... Never tailgate and always allow ample stopping distances... n Be alert for obstacles

Page 37

ADULT SECTION Operation Warnings Driving Responsibly As the adult, you must teach the child the proper and safe way to ride a snowmobile... Set boundaries and adhere to them, keeping the child's safety foremost in your mind... Never allow the child to operate this vehi- cle without adult supervision... Drive-Away from Parked When the snowmobile has been parked for more than a few hours, espe- cially overnight, the skis and track may freeze to the ground... Loosen the skis and track for the operator... You may have to apply extra throttle ini- tially to move the snowmobile... Teach operators not to be afraid of applying extra throttle in this situation, but make sure they understand that too much throttle could cause the snowmobile to lurch forward... Track Lubrication Do not operate the snowmobile for more than a few minutes on ground surfaces that contain little or no snow... The track needs snow for lubrica- tion, so driving in too little snow will result in excessive wear and dam- age to the slide rail and track... Snow and Ice Build-Up Snow and ice buildup in the underhood area can interfere with the steer- ing... Manually turn the skis completely to the right and to the left... If dif- ficulty is encountered, remove any ice and snow buildup that may be obstructing the steering linkage...

Page 38

ADULT SECTION Operation Warnings Snow Conditions This snowmobile is designed to operate best on snow... Maneuverability is attained by the steering, skis, and the shifting of the driver's body weight... Maximum control will be attained by shifting body weight... Maneuverability will change for lighter operators... If the snowmobile becomes stuck in snow, stop the engine... Clear the snow away from the running board area and clear away or step down the snow in front of the snowmobile... Restart the engine and drive out of the deep snow... Encourage the operator to stay on established riding areas to avoid getting stuck... Ice and Hard-Packed Surfaces Steering and braking control are substantially reduced when operating on hard surfaces, hard-packed snow or icy surfaces... Teach your child to reduce speed to maintain control in all driving conditions... If necessary, limit the maximum speed of the snowmobile as outlined on page 44... If ice or slippery conditions are unavoidable, use extreme caution and operate at speeds no faster than a walk... The skis need snow to help the snowmobile make turns... On hard surfaces the snowmobile will not make turns easily... It may be best to stop the engine, dismount, and man- ually move the front or rear of the snowmobile to change direction... Never make a sharp turn on a slippery surface... The snowmobile may skid out of control... Teach all operators to drive only in approved areas within the vision of the supervising adult...

Page 39

ADULT SECTION Operation Warnings Driving on Hills Traveling on hills is not recommended... A child may not be capable of maneuvering body weight as needed for operating on hills... If traveling on hills is unavoidable, teach your child to use extreme caution and obey the following proper operating procedures...

Page 48

WARNING A loose track or flying debris could cause serious personal injury or death... Be sure the rear support is stable... Stand clear of the front of the machine and the moving track... Never hold the snowmobile up or stand behind it while perform- ing this procedure... Do not use too much throttle during warm-up or when the track is free-hanging...

Page 49

ADULT SECTION Emission Control Information Any qualified repair shop or qualified person may maintain, replace, or repair the emission control devices or systems on your snowmobile... Emission Control Label Your snowmobile is equipped at the time of sale with an emission con- trol information (ECI) label and a factory-installed emissions informa- tion hang tag... These items are required by U... S... Environmental Protection Agency regulations... The ECI label is permanently affixed to either the right side of the tunnel or the engine recoil cover... The ECI label should not be removed, even after you purchase the snowmobile... You may remove the factory-installed emissions information hangtag, which is intended solely for your use in making a purchasing decision... Emission Control Maintenance Requirements Your snowmobile is certified to operate on gasoline with a minimum octane level of 87 (R+M)/2... The emission control system designation per SAE J1930 is EM... If your snowmobile is equipped with a check engine light and it comes on, you must take your snowmobile to a quali- fied dealer for diagnostic service... Specifications and adjustments for engine tune-ups are located in the Service Manual, which is available to your qualified service technician... Reverse (if equipped) must not be engaged during engine tune-ups... Owner's Responsibilities Please read the Snowmobile Engine Emissions Limited Warranty on page 92, and read the maintenance section of your owner's manual... You are responsible for ensuring that the specified maintenance is per- formed, including the emission-related maintenance outlined in these sections of the manual... Polaris considers the specified maintenance for the spark plugs and oil changes to be critical emission-related maintenance... Any qualified repair shop or qualified person may maintain, replace, or repair the emission control devices or systems on your snowmobile... Polaris rec- ommends that you contact an authorized Polaris dealer to perform any service that may be necessary...

Page 50

ADULT SECTION Maintenance Polaris Recommended Maintenance Program To ensure many trouble-free miles of snowmobiling enjoyment, follow recommended regular maintenance and perform service checks as out- lined in this manual... Record maintenance and service in the Mainte- nance Log beginning on page 94... The recommended maintenance schedule for your snowmobile calls for a service and maintenance inspection at 50 hours, at 100 hours and at 150 hours... These inspections should be performed by a qualified service technician... All necessary replacement parts and labor incurred, with the exception of authorized warranty repairs, become the responsibility of the regis- tered owner... If, during the course of the warranty period, part failures occur as a result of owner neglect in performing recommended regular maintenance, the cost of repairs are the responsibility of the owner... Personal safety is critical when attempting to service or make adjust- ments to your snowmobile... If you're not familiar with safe service or adjustment procedures and the use of tools, or if you don't feel comfort- able performing these tasks yourself, contact an authorized Polaris dealer for service...

Page 51

ADULT SECTION Maintenance Periodic Maintenance Chart The following chart is a guide based on average riding conditions... You may need to increase frequency based on riding conditions... When inspection reveals the need for replacement parts, always use genuine Polaris parts, available from your Polaris dealer...

Page 52

Check front and rear limiter strap condition, tighten loose bolts

Page 53

ADULT SECTION Maintenance Spark Plugs A new engine can cause temporary spark plug fouling due to the preser- vative added during the assembly process... Avoid prolonged idle speeds, which cause plug fouling and carbonization... Refer to the specifications section beginning on page 80 for recom- mended spark plug type and gap...

Page 54

ADULT SECTION Maintenance Spark Plugs Normal Plug The normal insulator tip is gray, tan or light brown... There will be few combustion deposits... The electrodes are not burned or eroded... This indi- cates the proper type and heat range for the engine and the service... NOTE: The tip should not be white... A white insulator tip indicates overheating,

Page 55

Exhaust System At approximately 50 hours, check the exhaust system for wear or dam- age... To inspect, allow the engine and exhaust system to cool completely... Open the hood and inspect the muffler and pipes for cracks or damage... Check for weak or missing retaining springs or damper/support grom- mets...

Page 56

ADULT SECTION Maintenance Carburetor Proper carburetor adjustment is critical, since a mixture too lean (too much air, too little fuel) will result in overheating of the combustion chamber causing pre-ignition of the fuel... This results in piston burning, bearing failure, or complete engine failure... A lean mixture can be the result of fuel line restrictions, foreign matter in the carburetor, etc... A mixture too rich (too much fuel, too little air) is also unfavorable because it can foul plugs and cause generally poor engine performance... All carburetors have been pre-set at the factory for adequate fuel supply... Higher altitude operation may require different adjustment and settings... The number stamped in the end of the main jet indicates the jet size that was installed at the time of manufacture... For questions about optional jetting for conditions in your area, see your Polaris dealer... Correct setup provides engine RPM within its given power band at full throttle settings and also provides maximum efficiency and operation at all other throttle openings... See your dealer for carburetor adjustments, which may include the following: Carburetor component changes for specific altitude and ambient tem-

Page 57

ADULT SECTION Maintenance Brake Lever Travel Firmly depress the brake lever... Measure the clearance between the lever and brake block... If clearance is more than 3/4" (19 mm), adjust the brake cable as outlined below...

Page 58

6... The brake band is adjusted correctly when brake lever freeplay is 1/4- 3/8" (6-10 mm) and clearance between the brake lever and block with the lever fully depressed is no more than 3/4" (19 mm)... Torque the band bolt nut to 6 ft... lbs... (8 Nm)...

Page 59

Choke/Cable Lubrication Lubricate the choke slide and cables occasionally as shown... Operate the choke intermittently before turning the engine off... This draws moisture out of the choke plunger area and reduces the possi- bility of the choke becoming fro- zen...

Page 60

ADULT SECTION Maintenance Chain Tensioner Inspect the chain... Proper deflection is one inch (25 mm)... Adjust the chain if deflection is incorrect... 1... Loosen the nut on the chain tensioner... 2... Raise the tensioner until the correct deflection is attained... 3... Tighten the nut to 15-18 ft... lbs... (20-24 Nm)... NOTE: When the chain has stretched to within 1/8" (3 mm) of the muffler

To ensure long life of the snowmobile's driveline, lubricate as follows: Lubricate Point A every 15 hours of operation with a small amount of

Page 62

ADULT SECTION Maintenance Engine Oil Oil Recommendations Polaris recommends the use of Polaris Premium 4 All Season Synthetic Oil or any class SE, SF (API classification) or higher grade oil... If multi- grade oil is used, oil consumption will increase when the ambient tem- perature is high... Always check and change the oil at the intervals outlined in the Periodic Maintenance Chart beginning on page 50... Perform the break-in oil change after 20 hours of operation...

Track Lubrication Track failure, loss of vehicle control and braking ability can result from extended use of this vehicle on surfaces providing marginal lubrication between the slider and track guide clips... Examples of marginal lubrica- tion would include lakes without snow cover, icy trails and no-snow conditions... The slide rail is designed to operate in conditions with adequate snow cover in order to provide sufficient lubrication... Excessive wear indicates insufficient lubrication... A new slider can cause faster heat build up in limited lubrication than a used slider, resulting in excessive wear... NOTE: Track damage or failure caused by operation on ice or poor lubrication

Check skags weekly to maintain positive steering characteristics... Replace skags when they are worn to half their original diameter... NOTE: See the dealer track studding and skag chart for recommended skags...

ADULT SECTION Maintenance Lubrication Recommendations Inspect and lubricate all greaseable components at the intervals outlined in the Periodic Maintenance Chart beginning on page 50... Controls and Linkage Lubricate all bushings, spindle shafts, and tie rod ends with a light coat of oil or grease... Lubricate throttle and brake controls and cables with Polaris Premium All Season Grease... Force a small amount of lubricant down the cable... Bearings Always grease drive shaft clutch side bearings with a high quality bear- ing grease to prevent corrosion, which will destroy the bearings... Electrical Connections Separate the electrical connector blocks and clean corrosive build-up from the connectors... Lubricate the blocks with dielectric grease and re- connect... Replace worn or frayed electrical wire and connectors... Be sure wiring harnesses are properly secured away from sharp edges, steering linkage, moving parts, and hot exhaust components...

ADULT SECTION Maintenance Storage Off season or extended storage of your snowmobile requires preventive measures to aid against deterioration and to prolong the useful life of many components... Fog the Engine 1... Treat the fuel system with Polaris Carbon Clean... See page 76... 2... Support the front end of the machine so the engine is level or tilted

Page 77

ADULT SECTION Maintenance Storage Stabilize the Fuel Proper off-season preparation of the engine and fuel system is vital to the prevention of rust and corrosion formation on precision engine parts during storage... See page 82 for the part numbers of Polaris products... 1... Fill the fuel tank with fresh fuel... 2... Add Polaris Carbon Clean Fuel Treatment or Polaris Fuel Stabilizer...

ADULT SECTION Maintenance Storage Track and Suspension Support the rear of the snowmobile slightly off the ground with an appropriate snowmobile support... This will allow the track to hang freely... Elevate the front end of the machine and place blocks securely under it to remove tension from the shocks and springs... This will minimize fatigue on the front shocks and springs... Storage Area Your snowmobile should be stored in a dry garage or shed, out of direct sunlight... It should be covered with a fabric snowmobile cover... Plastic covers can cause condensation to form and may damage some snowmo- bile components...
