  1. random photo thread

  2. Hi guys and gals. I have been going through a 2000 Polaris 340 that I bought for my daughter over the summer and recently finished. She is coming off a 2004 Polaris 120 with a few upgrades (clutch, gearing, in-take, jetting, etc.) but she got too big for it so it was sold. The new sled was in rough shape when purchased. It sat under a tarp for three years on a trailer and made a nice home for many small woodland creatures. We added a little fresh fuel sprayed a small blast of starting fluid and she fired, even idled (kinda'). The electric start worked as did the heated grips and all the lighting so $450 later she was in the back of the truck and headed home. After the eviction of the aforementioned woodland creatures the transformation began... The only parts replaced were the slides, carbides and grips. I figure I have between 30 and 40 hours into making her what she is today. This weekend should be the maiden voyage.
  3. Thank you everyone for your kind words everyone. I cleaned the aluminum up with lightly running a Scotchbrite pad over it, then some steel wool (lightly) and then polished it with Mothers Aluminum Polish. Mostly by hand. Cleaning these things up for my kids is how "relax" I did an 04 REV 600 a few years ago for my older daughters
  4. Snow in the forecast, and I am totaly not ready

    If it makes you feel any better I haven't gotten my sleds out of the trailer yet. I have been getting my daughters new to us 200 Polaris 340 cleaned up and ready to go for the past month. I never even finished doing my leaves!
  5. Wanted: Polaris black plastic skis

    LOL Great observation noxorc! Coolers for the boat in the summer, a fridge is just outside of the frame of the picture. Thanks for worrying about me though! LOL
  6. Wanted: Polaris black plastic skis

    I picked up a 2000 Polaris 340 for my 12 year old daughter over the summer and am just now finishing up getting it ready. The steel skis currently on the machine are in good shape but if I am being honest.... I loath steel skis. With that said, does anyone have a pair of black plastic ones that will fit and they are willing to part with?
  7. CABIN RENTAL in Central NH Baker River Area...on trail.

    Use my sleds...ummm... nahhhh..... LOL Thanks for getting back to me though. What town is your cabin in/near? I used to live in NH and am failrly familiar with most of the state but its been 15 years so I am drawing a blank with the "Baker River area description
  8. CABIN RENTAL in Central NH Baker River Area...on trail.

    I may be interested in the cabin for myself at some point but currently a friend of mine is interested but would need to rent sleds for the family. Are there any places close by that rent machines and gear?
  9. Hi David.  I rented from you a few years back and was wondering if you are still doing this.  I, along with friends of mine are interested in renting.  Please let me know.  Thanks,

  14. Little ride in southern VT this past Sauturday.

    The yellow 04 Rev ran great. It took a lot of elbow grease tho to get it to look the way it looks today. I bought it from an old highschiool friend of 20 years ago. It spent the last 2 years under a tarp ina barn and was covered in dust, pine needles and cobwebs! It was his kids sled and didn't ride it much. It had 2130 miles on it when I bought it. Mechanically I replaced the boots and reeds and fixed the kill switch which was nonfunctional. I added the skid plate, rear bag and a new flap and it was good to go. It ran great and handled good as well.

    yes, higher elevations were best but even lower areas were not too bad. I had friends ride in Woodford and were please with the conditions there as well.

  18. Sorry Tacoma

    Looks like my house. In the winter the sleds own the garage and the Silverado is out the door!
  19. If you reread rivercats post he said that the state was down 20,000 REGISTRATIONS, not revenue.... When you do the math the state was down $1,280,000 in REGISTRATION FEES!!!!
  20. We are ALL going to DIE!!!!

    You couldn't have said it better! Kids are soft today... God forbid EVERYBODY doesnt get a trophy of certificate! God Bless America when todays kids enter the corporate world and don't all receive the same raise as the guiy in the next cubicle. Actually... everybody will probably get equal raises for very little work just so its "FAIR" Oy vey....
  21. Wasting our time?

    Get those pj's on inside out and get a spoon under your pillow when you go to bed! -for those of you with young children you should understand this
  22. Wasting our time?

    I echo what smallengineguy said about snow bringing traffci to this site. I agree that snow is the fuel for a site like this. When there is snow we have trail reports, ride reports, questons about how to fix what broke the otherday, discussion of new products we have used as well as stories about experiences from the weekends rides. Some of these threads then spawn further threads and discussions. I am an avid facebook user but still frequent this site M-F and once the snow flys will visit on the weekends as well. I am a member of other sledding boards and can honestly say that this site is my favorite because of the both the people and because it is free of the B.S. that seems to exist on other boards. It would be a shame to see this site fall apart and honestly don't see it happening unless the moderators do not continue to support it. As I said in the beginning, snow is the fuel for this site. LET IT SNOW and they WILL COME!!
  23. new sled for the kids

    Picked up an '04 REV 600HO from a buddy of mine in upstate NY about a month ago for $2500 with only 2150 miles on it. It was his kids sled and before that a friend of his kids sled. Niether of which rode it very much thus the low miles. So in my spare time I have been going through it since about Thanksgiving. Found the carb boots were ripped and then realized the reeds were bad so I bought a new set of both, added the tunnel bag and skidplate,cleaned the carbs and the clutches fixed the pesky kill switch that didnt work and polished every inch of it. I also painted the front suspension, replaced the chewed up flap from the studs with the one off my 07 Blizzard and fabed up a little strap to try and keep this one from getting eatin'. It also came with two sets of panels that I cant decide which ones to use... prolly gonna' with the yellow this year. Only thing left to do is slap the Registration decals on the panels and add snow! Check it out!
