Default First year perfection

Except for an exhaust Probe that came loose, no issues. The few guys that are burning up belts probably should release the parking brake

Art's will run flawlessly all season.

As for yours....it will probably suffer many belt breaks, seizures and a season ending fire due to your lack of knowledge about snowmobiles.


J/K. They sound pretty bad ass. If I were going to buy a new sled it would be a contender. (not really, I just figured I'd stroke Art's ego)

So how are the Gen 4 sleds doing? I have heard of clutch / belt issues, motor issues etc. Some are to be expected I guess I mean we only pay $15k for a new sled they are toys right!!!! Hahaha, but seriously looking and thinking about next season and wonder how the first year sleds are holding up. I understand they handle superb and that many people are brand loyal or I own this loyal. just asking what problems people are seeing.

Judging by the comments on facebook... i'm guessing the people with problems are the ones that don't know the difference between an allen wrench and a hammer. And they're also the most vocal. :

G4's are the most rideable doo I've been on.

Track poacher ,
JK, I am just jealous. Can only dream of the day for now I pin stripe
sap on my new plastic.. Hearing glowing reports of the new 155 Doo's and soon for 163's when gearing is perfected. I want to try one!
