I did the pt last October.

everything was in real nice shape the track is like new. The hood has not been repainted and all the decals are origonal.

It is pretty dirty as it has been sitting since last year.

i did take it out a few times last winter, but the carb on this thing is a real Bi^&@! Have had a hard time getting it set up right, and have enough other sleds to ride.

I bought it becouse of the first year, and The thought of the 372 single.

Look in the Smith Roles forum, is it like the one there. My dad set his up with a new gasket kit and diaphragm and his is running really good. I can get those kits and they are inexpensive. What model carb. The numbers should be on it.

I replaced everything in it. Been messing -with the fuel height etc... Just gave up as i have 25 others that are not so finicky.

sometimes you just want to ride not wrench.

My experience with the Keihin is not to use a Windrosa kit.
I don't think I ever got one working good...
The OEM kits are the best if you can find them....

Here are 2 sites to get the OEM parts for Keihin . One to look up the part number, and the second to order it.

Good Luck, this is where I got the parts for dad's sled and they worked awesome. It runs like a dream.

I guess that must have been your sled at Edmonton this weekend? I didn't read the tag on it but since your Yamaha was there I expect it is.
I've been drooling over this sled since you first posted it and I have to say it looks awesome up close. You guys sure had a nice display, I wish it was a lot bigger.
It was pretty crowded when I was there, never got a chance to meet you, glad you brought it. It was the highlight of the show for me, or was it the Amsoil ladies?

Thanks you for the comments. Yes that was mine.
I was not at the show Friday night as I had to take my daughter to her Halloween dance.

It did do fairly well as the top three sleds for peoples choice had 20 votes and the rollo got 16.
