Hood straps & hinges....those were the days. This takes trailside maintenance to another level.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the 2012's and think they are some of the meanest looking sleds on snow, but why the hell can't they make a hood that doesn't require tools to get access to your engine?

I agree with you artdcat...hood straps and hinges were the "good 'ol days"

And i thought my F-series was pushing the limits on trail side maintenance.. Im sure there is way you go put in hood straps. We do it on the race sleds.

i thought the 08-12 sno pro was bad when it came out, but in reality its way better than this and probably has the best engine/clutch access for rider forward sleds period
After so far spending 700 miles this year on a new sno-pro 500, this is by far the best chassis.
