    had an 800 zrt. Between those zrts the thundercats and the Yamaha srx triples no snowmobiles ever sounded better. It would make your spine tingle. They both were rockets in there day. Not quite what the ones today will do but still not slouches compared to them. biggest problem with them was they were front heavy and didn't do well in powder. Blasting across the lake was there forte!

The things were heavy from the factory, not sure what the track added to mine.

    I went to go get the ski-doo back from the mechanic. He pretty much tuned everything and checked everything. He said there was a gas tank air hose that was pinched against the frame , so he passed it around somewhere else.
    Tuned the carb.
    checked the oil pump.
    Checked the gas pump. A good pump has 7lbs of pressure. Mine has 7.5.

    He says he thinks there might be alittle bit of water in the gas, and because I told him that the gas was coming out the pump vent hole, he suggested that if it does it again, to change the pump.
    Machine is in top notch condition, starts first pull. He collects old ski-doos, and said this one is in great condition.
