SAFETY IN MAINTENANCE
Observe the following
precautions:
• Throttle mechanism should be
checked for free movement before
starting engine.
• Engine should be running only when
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 cab removed.
• Gasoline is flammable and explosive
under certain conditions. Always
perform procedures 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.
• 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.
• 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.
• Only perform procedures as detailed
in this manual. Unless otherwise
specified, engine should be turned
OFF for all lubrication and maintenance procedures.
• 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

BREAK..IN PERIOD
Tool Box
Located under the cab. To gain access,
tilt cab. Ideal location for spare plugs,
belt, rope, etc.
Fuel Gauge
Unscrew fuel tank cap and withdraw
dipstick to check fuel level.
.... WARNING: Never use a lit match
.... or open-flame to check fuel level.
With Bombardier-Rotax snowmobile
engines, a break-in period is required
before running the vehicle at full throttle. Engine manufacturer recommendation is10to 15 operating hours. During this period, a richer mixture is
needed (i.e. 40 parts of gas for 1 part of
50/1 Bombardier oil). 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.
Oil Injection Models
Oil injection models do not require mixing oil with gas. However, proper
break-in period applies.
1D-Hour Inspection
As with any precision piece of mechanical equipement, we suggest that after
the first 10 hours of operation or 30
days after the purchase, whichever
comes first, that your vehicle be checked by your dealer. This inspection will
give you the opportunity to discuss the
unanswered questions you may have
encountered during the first hours of
operation. Remember that it is easier
to remedy at this time than to allow the
snowmobile to operate until a possible
failure occurs.
The 10 hours inspection is at the expense of the vehicle owner.

FUEL MIXING
On models not equipped with oil injection, oil must be added to the gasoline
in pre-measured amounts then both oil
and gasoline should be throughly mixed together before fueling the tank.
Recommended Gasoline
Use regular leaded gasoline available
from all service stations.
. . . CAUTION: Never experiment
•
with different fuel or fuel ratios.
Never use naphtha, methanol or similar
products,
Recommended Oil
Use concentrated Bombardier snowmobile oil available from your dealer.
This type of oil has specially formulated oil bases to meet the lubrication
requirements of the Bombardier-Rotax
engine.
If Bombardier snowmobile oil is unavailabe, substitute with a high-quality
2 cycle snowmobile oil. The oil/gas
mix must meet the vehicle requirements. See oil manufacturer recommendations on container.
~ CAUTION: Never use outboard
•
or straight mineral oils.
Fuel Mixing Procedure
To mix the gasoline and oil always use
a separate clean container. Never mix
directly in your snowmobile tank. For
best results, acquire two containers.
either plastic or metal. Draw from one
until empty then use the second one.
.... WARNING: Gasoline is flamma..... ble and explosive under certain
conditions. Always perform procedures 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 determinetd and corrected without
delay. Never add fuel while engine is
running. Avoid skin contact with fuel
at below freezing temperatures.
1. Pour approximately one gallon of
gasoline into a clean container.
Fuel Mixture Ratio
The importance of using the correct
fuel mixture cannot be overstressed.
An incorrect fuel ratio results in serious
engine damage. Recommended fuel
ratio is 50/1 .
S.1. MEASURE
500 mL oil to 25 liters 50/1
IMPERIAL MEASURE
1 can 16 02 oil to 5 imp. gals 50/1
or
1 can 500 mL to 51/2 imp. gals 50/1
U.S. MEASURE
1 can 12 oz oil to 5 U.S. gals 50/1
.0
NOTE: To facilitate fuel rnixinq,
oil should be kept at room temperature.

2. Add the full amount of oil.
3. Replace container cap and shake
the container thoroughly.
Check level and refill every time you refuel.
4. Add the remainder of the gasoline.
5. Once again thoroughly agitate the
container. Then using a funnel with
a fine mesh screen to prevent the
entry of water and foreign particles,
transfer mixture from container into
the snowmobile tank.
NOTE: When using pre-mixed
fuel, always shake the container
thoroughly as the oil has a tendency to
settle.
W A RNING: Never 'top up' gas
tank before placing the vehicle in
a warm area. At certain temperatures,
gasoline will expand and overflow.

damaged track.
(WS) Track Tension and
Alignment
The suspension is adjustable, the front
adjustment for surface condition, the
rear for driver's weight.
When the front adjuster blocks are at
the lowest elevation more weight is
distributed on the skis. At the highest
position the weight is transferred to the
track. The rear adjuster blocks should
be adjusted to suit the driver's preference.
~
CAUTION: Too much tension
will result in power loss and excessive stresses on suspension components.
If necessary to adjust. Loosen the rear
idler wheel retaining screw and then
loosen or tighten the adjuster bolts located on the inner side of the rear idler
wheels. If correct tension is unattainable. Contact your dealer.

OFTEN ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Why must my snowmobile be registered? After all I do have my original invoice
as proof of when I purchased my snowmobile.
A: The information provided by the Customer Warranty Registration card is
computerized, and al/ warranty claims thereafter, are processed by the computer. Without this valuable information on the Warranty Registration Card,
we cannot acknowledge warranty or notify owners of a possible safety recall.
Q: How do I know my vehicle has been registered at the factory?
A: When you bought your snowmobile the dealer should have completed, and
forwarded us the manufacturer's copy of the Customer Warranty Registration. The hard copy of the card is your proof that the snowmobile is registered.
Q: I bought my snowmobile in O'King County but I snowmobile in Washington
County. Can the dealer in Washington County accept warranty work on my
snowmobile?
A: Yes, any authorized dealer in North America can perform warranty repairs,
providing the customer warranty registration card is presented.
Q: Where can I find information on the lubrication and maintenance of my snowmobile?
A: In this Operator Manual provided with the vehicle at the time of first sale.
Q: Will the entire warranty be void or cancelled, if I do not operate or maintain my
new snowmobile exactly as specified in the Operator's Manual?
A: The warranty of the new snowmobile cannot be "voided" or "Cancelled".
However, if a particular failure is caused by operation or maintenance other
than is shown in the Operator Manual, that failure may not be covered under
warranty. This includes service work performed by the customer, especially
the critical adjustments to ignition, timing, cerburetion and oil injection/or oil
mixture.
Q: Would you give some examples of abnormal use or strain, neglect or abuse?
A: These terms are general and overlap each other in areas. Some specific examples may include: running the machine out of oil, sustained high r.p.m. full
throttle use, chain failure caused by a lack of lubrication and/or adjustments,
operating the machine with a broken or damaged part which causes another
part to fail, and so on. If you have any specific questions on operation or maintenance, please contact your dealer for advice.

0: What costs are my responsibility during the warranty period?
A: The customer's responsibility includes all costs of normal maintenance services, non-warranty repairs, accidents- and collision damage, as well as oils,
and spark plugs, and incidental or consequential damages costs as explained
in the warranty.
.
0: Are "Genuine" Bombardier replacement parts used in warranty repairs covered
by warranty?
A: Yes. When installed by an authorized dealer, any "genuine" Bombardier
part used in warranty repairs assumes the remaining warranty that exists on
the machine.
0: What is Bombardier's policy on extending a warranty?
A: It is not Bombardier's policy to extend warranty. Bombardier has selected a
warranty period sufficiently long to permit adequate use of the machine to
allow for possible concealed manufacturing defects to occur.
Q: If I sell my snowmobile within the warranty period, will the new owner qualify
for the balance of the warranty?
A: Yes, provided the unit has already been registered with the manufacturer.
Note that the change of ownership card in this manual should be completed
and sent to Valcourt.

HOW TO IDENTIFY YOUR SNOWMOBILE
The main components of your snowmobile (engine, track and frame) are
identified by different serial numbers. It
may sometimes become necessary to
locate these numbers for warranty purposes or to trace your snowmobile in
the event of theft.
