So the kido’s snowcheck showed up, got it home and realized that it has hand warmers but no thumb warmer.... seems like a bit of a cheesy shortcut but I’m over it.

I’m gonna guess that lots of you have already looked after this, let’s hear what you used for parts. I know there are kits available from Cat as well as the aftermarket. I haven’t ruled out the possibility of replacing the flipper with an OEM one with a heater if I can find a good match.

So an update on this thread,

I got a used throttle from a ‘15 RMK, and extracted the element from it. Did a bit of milling on the stock AC flipper (to thin out the plastic and leave a flat surface for mounting) and JB welded the element in place. It’s a 3 wire element so that allows for multiple heat possibilities, used the highest resistance (“lowest” heat) and it is just about right IMO.

Working perfectly so far.....

I used a Atv thumb warmer. It fit in there just nice

The carb work... well they missed the mark imho. -5 c and I still need to play with choke to get it to spool up like it should without popping and farting It was faster when I do that. So I ordered some jets off eBay might be mistake or have to go bit bigger than genuine ones but will try it. Maybe will help it start better to with the e start. Just so lean it’s wants to fire and does but starter kicks out b4 it’s running so it quits

Quarter throttle full choke. once started, place choke at 1/2 and then 1/4 as idle changes. I was pretty much ready to burn the thing one day. It wouldn't start and when it did it wouldn't idle. Since I started using this procedure its been flawless.. in all temps.

So cat cut production on the heated thumb warmer accessory. I cant seem to find a part number for the one that comes on the 2020s either..

Anyone have any other options? I don't want to modify the throttle too much.
Looks like it’s standard on a 2021... or it’s a misprint that will cause some grief when the sleds arrive.

Seriously though, at the manufacturing level that little heater element would cost them about 15 cents.
