Default New Yeti Suggestions

Picking up an 18 ....... So far I am going to pull every bolt and piece and red loctite them in along with checking them regularly. Any other suggestions on prep?

Agreed .. but I keep reading where they keep coming out... I know I ended up using red loctite on the 15 timbersled with the cr500 but the bolts we're not titanium.

I'm not sure any color of Loctite can stand up to a CR500, it is the ultimate test bed for thread lockers.

They are a good unit! I have a 2018 129 SS I ran last season. No broken parts, no lost bolts. Very little belt stretch or bolts that needed re torqued.


After each ride - Check the belt tension. Check torque on all bolts including ski/spindle. Dry, lube and check drive chain. Inspect the complete unit including ski and spindle assy. Check the track tension.



Very happy with it! I have a 2019 129 SS on the way. Just not sure I want to let the 18 go. Hope the 19 is as dependable! Had good success with two ARO 120s also. (My daughters ride them).

No need to get crazy with the Red Locktite. Blue is factory spec. Even with Red the 8 suspension arm bolts will still work their way loose. Just get in a habit of torquing the 12 bolts in the suspension every other ride and you will be fine.

Make sure TSB's have been preformed. Jack Shaft bearing shaft alignment (129SS only), and the brake caliper bolt torq and re-Locktite.
