This sled was a good sled while it lasted this year but i bent the bulkhead BAD. Going full tube chassis on this one now(a first) and excited to get going on it. Just wanted opinions on what will be the best setup for this sled.
MOTOR OPTIONS
-Yamaha Nytro motor
-Skidoo 1200

MAYBE'S
-800r out of an XP
-Cat 800 motor

All turboed im thinking Pump gas setup

SUSPENTION OPTIONS
-Timbersled
-K-Mod

This is what im looking for at the moment. Here is what im starting off with.
The goal is a light weight powerful sled(Im a lightweight junkie). Also looking for the reliability of the 4-stroke motor.

Yep, I built it last summer. Worked great and now its time to finish the chassis off. Ill have to post some pix of the Damage done to the bulk head. Nasty.

Also looing for the best cooling ideas in the tunnel and steering ideas. I Know i can shead some weight there. Anyone have any super light stearing setups or toughts?

I hear cats with a turbo are the way to go if you want reliable hp.timbersled is what i would try because i want to also..other than that i am not sure thats why i am farmsled'n it..

The tunnel came in at 18 lbs powder coated and skinned. It was way stronger than I figured it would be and held a lot less snow than a stocker. The stock one weighted 32 lbs in the same stage. I love it. Can't wait to get a new front end built for it and get it back out on the snow for another season with a new power plant.

If I could...

I'd put a 800HO Cat motor with a Twisted Turbo and a K-Mod skid. 200+hp sub 450lbs

Vector motor, Alpine or ??? and a CR-10. 250-275hp sub-525lbs

Realistically if it were mine....

Turbo the 800HO and K-Mod it.

I already parted out the engine bay. No more motor. So i figured while im rebuilding the bulkhead, Might as well put the best motor in her possible. Do you guys really think going 4-stroke will add 75 LBS to this sled? As opposed to a 800 2 stroke?

Yes, maybe even more when you figure in all the lectrical and exhaust system...The Nytro motor is remotely bullet proof, but for the idea you are going with it stay with a 2 stroke...your gonna end up with a chassy that is amazingly wellbuilt but will handle terribly and be so nose heavy that it will either dive or not be able to stay down. Just my .02 but lightweight is great until it breaks, there are def some parts that are better staying a lil beefy. But all in all i love your build its a beautiful work of art...i have a 900 Turbo in a built chassis and soon to be building a new nytro..but ridden many many of them. Best of luck!

haha.. because I can.. ill post instead of just talk your ear off.

issue with a cat motor is the pipe exits out the front and wraps around, and that being kinda a PITA to get working.. can you say hacked up pipe that splits all the time? thinking about my yami motor.. there is a LOT of crap associated iwth it that isnt light.. header being one of them.... oil pan, starter.. you know.. you have pulled on mine! get a doo motor and boost the crap out of it... so easy!

Ok Guys seriously thinking about a two stroke turbo build now. Just for weight reasons. I built my 900 turbo now i think i can build a very good kit with the knowelege i have from this build. Any thoughts on a 600 turbo? Ive heard the 600's are about 20 lbs lighter than the 8's. + less rotating mass. Anyone have a 600 turbo that runs well. Do they run with a mod 800?

Thanks for the kind words. With the way this tunnel held up this year, I am so impressed with chromoloy. So light and so strong. I am very good at testing the the strengths of things. That will be one of the greatest challenges of this build is figuring out where the extra weight need to be for the strength.

The 600t's are a fun sled. I dont know if anyone has a controller or a setup for a fuely... lots of history on the Poo carb 600's

Reeb
05-01-2010, 01:58 AM
The new 800HO or older 900 Cat motors are pretty close in performance as far as I can tell. Hard to tell because of the chassis difference. Both good platforms for boost.
I'd contemplate a 900 based 999 bigbore with spray if I was really serious about boosting the 800 Doo.
But now you got me thinking......dammit.....this one has to stay half-azzed stock this time.

Good luck man, can't wait to see what you come up with.

hey josh.. want to buy a 700 doo motor??!!! ahaha..

ill see if I cant hunt down a weight savings.. if you still had your 8 we could measure em straight across. oh well. a 600 milled out head and some pressure would be silly for the style of riding you do.. I think I would have to change groups as I could never follow you.. worse then now! 600 motors are cheap and easy to come by.. the carbs are the same as the 8's if im thinking right.. so should be easy.. light. and like doing exotic drugs!

thanks matt

Well here you go. The whole thing is tweaked bad. Hard to tell in the pics.
Here is the story:
I have Titanium a-arms that are ment to break before the bulkhead bends, They work great. I broke one on a early season ride and decided to throw a stocker on untill i got the new one in. Very next ride out hit a rock on that side and bent the bulk head a little. Still ridable for the rest of the season but that made me not want to put a new TI arm on a bent frame. So countless rides later and a few more rocks It was very bad.
The Cross plate that the motor plate(see Picture) blots into tweaked over and slammed into the side of the pimary, Them proceded to grid on the inside of the primary for the rest of the ride. The left side moved in so far that the other side started to separate and move out. NOT GOOD

After the last hit my left ski sat 5" back from the Right. It looks better than it is. I wouldnt have torn it apart otherwise. I am not a big fan of the 900 motor and if i was gonna go big than im going 4-stroke. Im guessing ill just go with whatever i find the best deal on though.

My brother has raced a Polaris 600 turbo on the RMSHA circuit for the past few years, and he has even won in OPEN MOD with it, so yes they can make major HP...his closes in on 240-250 at 13lbs boost. Boondocker has good race gas setups for these 600's...

Haha. The battle is at work at the moment. Should slow down on the next month or so so i can get going on this thing. Im kinda liking the turbo 600 idea so well see. Now looking hard at the 1200 skidoo motor? anyone have any coments on this motor?

hypnotoad
05-17-2010, 10:07 PM
if you are going 4-stroke i'd problably stick with a yammy power plant, there is just so much more support out there for them compared to the 1200. but the 1200 would be a pretty cool build, haven't seen too many of those done up.

jskattum606
05-19-2010, 07:40 AM
That is a good point. There is not a lot of people doing these compared to the yamahas. I just love the deep sound of the big tripple four strokes and the skidoo motor is the bigger of the two. The 600 Turbo is probably way more practical for me. Lighter, more nimble, Quicker reving motor are all of the things any "tree hugger" loves about a sled and the 600 is where its at when you look at it that way

hypnotoad
05-19-2010, 08:00 PM
a 600 would be a bit more ideal for the trees for sure, but one can't deny that the sound of a four stroke on boost is amazing. have you thought about getting a 700, kinda best of both worlds little more grunt than the 600 but less rotating mass than the 800's.

05-20-2010, 01:02 AM

aero'd 600 in a full tube.. I will stop riding with you, it will be like the nimble of the rev and the climb of the 9.. I dont want any part of following those lines..

Im just gonna start now... josh, get down from that hill, the trees are to tight.

Haha. Now that's funny. I can't wait to here you yelling from the BOTTOM of the hill:face-icon-small-sho. Just kidding. I don't know what to do at the moment. I've started looking and I'll just end up buying what I find a good deal on. The 800R motor sounds tempting too out of like a 09 XP. We will see

It will be good for you to knock out some of the tube stuff first, as I have NO clue what I want to be doing as far as tube parts goe.

funny thought, you know how bad the rev could dig a trench and not get stuck.. almost flip it straight over backwards and it owuld keep digging?? think how my sled is. think how it will be tubed out!!! and with limiters out and skid softened... got wheelie?!?!

Very nice build thus far.

If You are considering a 1200 take some measurements before you go much further. It's a pretty wide block. You can shave some width off going with a aftermarket primary, but it's still pretty wide. Gut feeling says it's too side and the cradle isn't wide enough to fit the bottom end in there. You may need to go to RT Bodywork to make it fit.

I've built up a 1200 last fall and I've going a little further with it this summer. Maybe a thread I put together will help you in some way.

this guy built his own tube tunnel, so im guessing he can tackle the cat lay down engine inside a rev...snowstar stuffed a M1000 in a IRQ and made his own custom pipe, i would contact him about the pipe

and treching is only related to the track and rear skid, you will feel zero lag on a turbo M engine, zero:face-icon-small-hap

One more post I found this am. Cliff over at Advanced Dyno is building conversion kits from XR with the 1200 4 Tec to the RT chassis which is dimensionally slightly different than the REV but that may give you a head start.

trust me, I know josh pretty well, It didnt trench worse, it just allowed it to dig in 10x as far before it got stuck, creating some funny stuff. and again, not that you cant do it... He just learned from watching me.. some things are possible, just not the best ideas.

Jumping on this thread to see where it goes! Sounds good and as far as the two strokes... the 700's do have the less rotating mass and lighter weight but gives significant gains over the 600. Turbo a 777 kit from carls and enjoy

I like this idea alot and would love to, The only thing is Big bore+Turbo system = lots of money. I need to pipe down the sledding fund, not add more haha. Then again, You cant bring it with you when you go. well see where this adventure takes me. Pretty sure on the 2 stroke now. Just need to decide which one and find a deal.

Real excited because im right next door to Mark Hoffman and CMX which has spent a lot of time with this motor and the Aerocharger which i plan on using for weight and simplicity. Will be rainy part on the week so hiding in the shop with the sled is where i will try to make it haha. Got to pull out my 900 motor first for some motor mount experimentation, then on to this project. Any sugestions on how to set this motor up for boost will be appriciated.

Im getting anxious to put some long hours into this thing and get it ready for snow. I ve been talking to a lot of different turbo kit builders and compiling ideas. I think i have a very good feel as to where my turbo kit is going this year, Very EXCITED.

Not too far but i see a sled dont worry.

quick thought/question.... steering post.. gonna run the stocker or make a custom one?? or is that bridge getting crossed when your that far along.. blah blah blah... steering system.. thoughts??

jskattum606
07-31-2010, 01:08 PM
Its comming along, as far as the steering post goes, I think im gonna use the stocker to get the project finished, Then if i have time, build a new post right before snow flies. there is some weight to be had out of the post for sure and i would also like to make it a strait post to clean things up a bit. As fror the lower steering assembly goes, Im thinking just leaving it stock. Works good and is still tight

fair enough.. more or less deal with the key stuff(getting it operable) then start to play with the little stuff. I kinda forgot after your done the chassis you still have to then mount a different motor and associated stuff, then add a turbo setup. I feel like this is gonna be a busy september/october!!!

jskattum606
08-01-2010, 06:56 PM
Yeah, If i think about the big picture to much i makes my head hurt. lots going on and i feel like little time to do it. Im gonna be sledding in october so i gotta hurry. One thing at a time and it goes smooth. I got the steering hoop just about finished so its starting to look like something now. :face-icon-small-hap

jskattum606
08-05-2010, 07:42 PM
Little more progress. I got the top, steering support and Pyramid frame mostly done. Need to get the rear supports made up that go back to the middle of the tunnel and start on the front of the sled and a-arm attatchment. Then motor mounts blah blah.. haha

I think Im gonna go blue and black on this sled. Like Bud Light blue. The color just hit me one night haha.

thats looking SICK!!! Love the speed square next to it.. gotta keep it all in check.

as far as the color scheme goes.. if you gonna rock some bud light blue, just go all out and go blue/silver with some red accents... would look SICK!!

You got the thing on the run, should be done pretty soon!!! seems like now that you got something going all your ideas can play out.. its always the first steps that take the longest.

A little more forward movement. Things should be going much faster now that i feel the chill of winter starting to come on. The two halves have united.
I got one of the rear bars on that hold the tank in. Im going to run the one on there solid and have the other one setup with a hinge that will allow the bar to swing out of the way, and the tank to come out the side.

Also decided to go aluminum on the sides for the belt drive, jackshaft, and drive shaft. the motor mounts will also go on top of this. Using .080 Aluminum sheeting for this and it will rivet into the sides of the bulk head and the very front of the tunnel. Its just lieing in there at the moment.

And now for the front suspension. Got it all set up and in place. Should be able to ge the other side in place today. The first pic. is of the aluminum spacers i made to get it all square with the bottom brackets. I recycled the stock a-arm mounts. Took alot of time to get it perfect.

well, About time i get something done. Got the motor mounts in and the motor mounted. Havent decided if i will put in any other push arms or rods anywhere. Also got the front of the tunnel made up. I will have a lot of clearance for the paddles i should be able to fit 3" paddles in there if i ever decide to got that direction. Now that the motor is in, everything should go very fast. Hope to have the chassis off to powder coating next week.
Excited to get this thing finished now.

hey josh, who are you going to have powder coat it? Going to cooke the first or second week in november for a test and tune ride. Hows that for a due date? Also you should get ahold of FTX and get their moter plate, it will make your crank last alot longer, and don't forget to make sure your oil pump is set right. Most RMK's i have seen have WAY to much oil in the fuel. Just thinking of things to do BEFORE you get it all put together. It looks sweet man!

EDIT: IF you go with the budlight idea, how about calling it "the dirt thirty" ? Idk, kinda catchy? lol

was thinking you need to give this build a good name. What better then Poo in the Doo.

here is a suggestion. Ez ryde 163 with a 3in paddle. Black powder coat tube's black plastic, black seat. black hood with 3 coats of budlight blue candy over the top. I painted my hood like that. looks black until the sun hits it. Then its bling'n blue. My 2 cents You must be hard at work with it or scratchin your head with a bud light,,, no updates for a while

and I found you almost all the parts you need for some custom fueling... and a big old refueling station

if you want to paint any of the plastic, I can do that for you, I got it figured out pretty good.. mine looked really nice before I hit all those darn trees. and bud light blue is such a badarse color!!

No offense,,, but aaaaa you are a better fabricator then you are a painter. even if you hit trees or pinecone's,,,,,, the paint is supposed to stick. I paint by trade and could help you with any prep work advise. Judging from the pics of ur bad arse sled,,,,, the orange aint stickin so good. it dont compliment the level of fab work you've done. Good color choice though:face-icon-small-win

sorry to jack your thread josh, but I think he underestimates the level of tree hugging we do with these buggys... lets just say line choice isnt always dicated by where there are openings... or any sort of line.. point shoot.. crash. thats what this sled is hopefully gonna be even better for.. should hold up well to running over those little twigs in the forest.

josh will have to confirm.. but im pretty sure we built the whole turbo system and did all the coolant lines right?? its pretty much ready to run...


just kidding, hes been plugging away on it, i helped him get some ideas on saturday.. the steering system is in, working on building a new/reshaped steering post to fit things in there.

we did get pretty solid plans on where things are going turbo wise, so just a matter of fab, i think the main issue currently is that he needs to figure out a tube front bumper that allows removal of the pipe. y-pipe was cut and redirected so it faces properly for the chassis. pipe is laying in place..

i cant wait to get this thing finished. My phone cable got lost so no pixs till this weekend. Hopefully i can get my camera to work. Thanks for holding down the fort Skidoin-it. and thanks for help(the thought anyways). The stering post is all mached up and ready to be welded, the pipe and mount for the pipe are in place. And the design process is finished for the turbo system. The next things to think about are the front bumper, and side pannels. kinda wanna make a Skinz air frame type custom side pannel for the thing, I think it would work good and if i could get all of the lines to flow with each other, I think they would look awesome and be lighter than stockers.

Sled looks awesome and looks like it runs like a top. I am interested in what thickness 4130 you used and what you think your sled weighs? I would like to build another sled for next year. I am thinking really light weight. . . . . I mean really light, Maybe sub 350lbs With mild hp, 150 or so.

I am still running the stock rear skid, stock front suspension and a few small things like the stering system i would like to re design(XP style) and the side pannel system(carbon fiber) But it feels lighter than anything ive ever riddin and is just too much fun.

mmmm det sensor.. ahaha.. poor motor.

haha The story behind this is....
Ive been having some top end issues after a long pull or after riding for a while, the sled will just fall on its face and go into a limp mode. I just didnt know it was limp mode. It changed with different riding spots and was just a problem that i couldnt figure out.
Finally found out that it was the DET sensor going off puting it into limp mode and all i had to do was turn the sled off and re start to get it going again. more race gas, here we come.

The sled is great. It does some amazing things and is unlike anything i have riddin. will turn on a dime, side hill like nothing else and has the power to haul the mail when it comes time.

The bottom end is still not as responsive as it should be and that will come with time and tunning i hope. I mostly ride in the steep and deep littered with trees and that is where this sled does its job. In and out of the throttle is instant and it will go untill you run out of ground. ITS WILD

no, it didnt really bend, it just sheared a weak link in a welded junction, so it should easily straighten back out and be redone and braced a hair better..

it might not have been the idea, but the need for weak points in it is critical, as its a LOT stronger you dont want to make the weakest link somewhere in the middle of the bulkhead persay.. try to keep it in the extremities.

it held up rather well, a few minor weak links, but they are almost identical to the rev breakage issues, so was sorta expected. it took a lot of hard hits this season and kept on tickin..

you guys are gonna like the updated version of it.

so let us see it already.

same as mine... its a new chassis, similar tunnel, but there are a few flex points in that and the whole front end is being custom redone. this one was a sort of rev copy to run a normal a-arm.. new version is 100% custom front end with custom arms etc.

sorry josh, i hate to answer for you, but your just not on here enough!!! even thought your reading right now!!!
