SAFETY
MEASURES ____________________________
Observe the following
precautions:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Throttle mechanism should be checked
for free movement before starting engine.
Do not operate vehicle near snow making
equipment.
The snowmobile
can be stopped
by activating the emergency cut-out or
tether switches or turning off the key.
Clean and check operation of the headlight, tail light and brake light.
Engine should be running only when belt
guard and/or pulley guard is secured in
place.
Never run the engine without drive belt
installed. Running an unloaded engine can
prove to be dangerous.
Never run the engine when the track is
raised off the ground.
It can be dangerous to run engine with
the hood removed.
Gasoline is flammable and explosive under
certain conditions. Always manipulate in
a well ventilated area. Do not smoke or
allow open flames or sparks in the vicinity.
If gasoline fumes are noticed while driving,
the cause should be determined and corrected without delay.
Maintain your vehicle in top mechanical
condition at all times.
Your snowmobile is not designed to be
driven or operated on black top, bare earth,
or other abrasive surfaces. On such surfaces abnormal and excessive wear of critical parts is inevitable.
Your snowmobile is not designed to be
operated on public streets, road or highways. In most States and Provinces, it is
considered an illegal operation.
Installation of other than standard equipment, including ski-spreaders, bumpers,
pack racks, etc., could severely affect the
stability and safety of your vehicle. Avoid
adding on accessories that alter the basic
vehicle configuration.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Whenever the vehicle is parked outdoors,
overnight or for a long period, it is suggested to protect it against the inclemency
of the weather with a snowmobile cover.
Do not lubricate throttle and/or brake cables and housings.
Only perform procedures as detailed in
this manual. Unless otherwise specified,
engine should be turned OFF for all lubrication and maintenance procedures.
Since engine cooling is fully in effect only
when the vehicle is in motion and driven
on snow, it is not recommended that you
allow the engine to idle for more than brief
periods and/or you drive the vehicle on
icy surface. Prolonged idling and/or continuous driving on ice may cause engine
damage.
When removing coolant tank cap, first
place a cloth over cap then turn cap to
its first step to release pressure. Never drain
or refill the cooling system when engine
is hot.
These vehicles are designed for the driver
only. No provisions have been made for
a passenger.
The performance of these vehicles may
significantly exceed that of other snowmobiles you have
Therefore, use
of this vehicle by novice or inexperienced
operators is not recommended.
Should removal of a locking device be required when undergoing repairs/disassembly, always replace by new ones. Tighten
fasteners as specified in the applicable
Shop Manual.
PLEASE READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL
WARNINGS AND CAUTIONS IN THIS
MANUAL AND ON THE VEHICLE
THIS MANUAL SHOULD REMAIN WITH THE VEHICLE

BREAK-IN P E R I O D - - - - - - Engine
With Bombardier-Rotax snowmobile engines, a break-in period is required before running the vehicle at fu II throttle.
Engine's manufacturer recommendation
is ten ( 10) to fifteen ( 15) operating hours.
During this period, maximum throttle
should not exceed 3/4, however, brief
full acceleration and speed variations
contribute to a good break-in. Continued
wide open throttle accelerations, prolonged cruising speeds, and lugging are
detrimental during the break-in period.
0
NOTE: To assure additional protection during the initial engine breakin, 500 ml (18 imp. oz) of BLIZZARD Oil
(P/N 496 0135 00) or the same quantity of BOMBARDIER Injection Oil should
be added to gas for the first full gas tank
filling.
, . , CAUTION: Remove and clean
T spark plugs after engine break-in.
Belt
A new drive belt requires a break-in period of 25 km ( 15 miles).
10 - Hour Inspection
As with any precision piece of mechanical equipment, we suggest that after the
first ten ( 10) hours of operation or thirty
(30) days after the purchase, whichever
comes first, your vehicle be checked by
your authorized dealer. This inspection
will give you the opportunity to discuss
the unanswered questions you may have
encountered during the first hours of
operation.
The 10 hour inspection is at the
expense of the vehicle owner.

Limiter Screw
The function of the suspension limiter
screw is to control the transfer of vehicle weight during acceleration. The
closer the nut from the cotter pin, the
more the weight will be transferred to
the track to provide a better traction.
The farther the nut from the cotter pin,
the lesser the weight will be transferred
to the track, thus maintaining a more
positive direction. Limiter screw allows
to adjust weight transfer according to
driver's requirement, field and/or snow
conditions.

Drive Pulley
A014 005 022
These vehicles are equipped with the
TRA drive pulley {Total Range Adjustable). This pulley includes three {3) calibration screws that provide the opportunity to perform minor adjustments to
the clutch in order to keep the engine
at it's peak power R.P.M., thereby maintaining optimal vehicle performance.
A001 055 011
.A. WARNING: Before checking track
T alignment, ensure that the track
is free of particles which could be
thrown out while it is rotating. Keep
hands, tools, feet and clothing clear
of track. Ensure no-one is standing in
close proximity to the vehicle.
To correct, stop the engine, loosen the
rear idler wheels retaining screws then
loosen the lock nuts and tighten the adjuster screw on side where the slider
shoe is the farthest to the track insert
guides.
Guide
Slider
shoes
The clutch is factory adjusted at position three (3) to provide the best performance under most riding conditions
at sea level. However certain conditions,
such as deep snow, high altitude, pulling a load, etc. may allow the engine
to run below it's peak power R.P.M. at
wide open throttle thus decreasing the
vehicle performance. Should such conditions be encountered the calibration
screws can then be resets to allow the
engine to operate at it's peak power
R.P.M. (given in technical data as max.
