Default New to the Poo

A few weeks ago I got the chance to get one of the last 2014 Poo RMK Pro 600's in my area, its a huge upgrade from my old 2004 Cat F5 Sno Pro. Now since its a whole new beast id like to know what tips, tricks, and helpful upgrades that would help me get the most out of it. Now some may say that I bought the wrong sled but I'm a flatlander. No mountains in North-Central Wisconsin. Any help is greatly appreciated.

going to need a set of scratchers. get the cable version. The spring rod version break if you back up with them down. trust me from experience.

they are like 80.00 for the cable ones. i got the spring rod ones for 60.00 and just had to replace them this weekend in West.

First thing you need to do is make sure the dealer (or you) put in the right clutch weights for your elevation... They come set up for 6000-8000' from factory.

I was looking at the stage 2 tied clutch kit from bikeman. Are they good? Those spring scratchers are a pain in the @ss haha. If im getting a clutch kit im not going to worry about the clutch weights for now. Also I heard that bikeman has a cold air intake. Any one hear that too?

Don't waste money on a intake for a stock or even mildly modded motor. No gain to be had and more than likely you'll lose power. No idea on the clutch kit but Polaris does a really good job from the factory when you have the correct weights in.

What weights should I have? the highest place I ride in is under 1000ft. Will I have to pull the clutch off?

10-64 weights. Easy install, no need to remove clutch. Just pull the front cover off to release the spring tension and replace weights. Make sure to line the X's up when you put it back on to keep it balanced.

Pro RMK sleds have scratchers OEM.
