Don't forget about replacing your clutch springs and worn jets. These are items that wear but are often forgotten.

This is maintenance for all sleds. Remove the skid frame and check all cross shafts for wear. Replace if needed. When you have them out you can clean out the tubes that they sit in because there is usually some old dried grease in there. Good time to check the wheel bearings for roughness. Check hyfax for wear. They are a lot easier to change with the skid out. Check exhaust springs to see if any are missing. Tighten exhaust manifold bolts for tightness. If oil is leaking from them replace the gaskets.

Check compression if it blows on the mountain you might have to hike out. Look at your belt surprised no one said this. also look at your track found 3 screws in my paddles this year??? With racing moto check all bolts on the sled had my drive clutch bolt back out and screwed the whole clutch last year.
