If I was a Twitt(erer), here are some of the various things I would have Tweeted this past week or so:
-Ever break the tab that your rubber hood latch is supposed to secure to? Cat has a new Hood Tab Latch Repair Kit (above, P/N 5639-498) for Crossfire and M Series. It includes two pins and is a whole bunch cheaper than a new hood.
-According to Speedwerx, their new 2010 800 HO lightweight muffler drops 10-11 lbs. and is quieter than the stock can.
-If you bought a new Sno Pro 500, check the belt deflection. Reports indicate that it’s out of spec on many sleds that came from the factory. Think of it as free horsepower.
-Team Arctic/Christain Bros. Racing snocrossers Ryan Simons (above) and Logan Christian will race the USCC cross-country in Grafton, ND, on Jan. 2. Logan will be on a Sno Pro 500.
-Their teammate, Garth Kaufman, is planning to race the I-500.
-Look for some famous old-school Team Arctic racers to race the I-500 aboard Sno Pro 500s. Aaron Scheele, Joey Hallstrom and Paul Dick are confirmed. Hallstrom is working hard to encourage Brad Pake and Jeremy Fyle to join the fray.
-Jeff Johnson, owner of one of the coolest collection of vintage (and will-someday-be-vintage) Arctic Cats, and his sons have formed King Kat Racing. They are making a run a the famed Soo 500 enduro.
-Team Arctic Oval star and 3-time World Champion P.J. Wanderscheid (above) just landed a hefty sponsorship with DRIFT clothing.
-Arctic Cat has a new gizmo on some of their 2010 ATVs that improves their ride quality immensely. I rode it in Moab, Utah (above), about 10 days ago and I wouldn’t buy an ATV w/o it. Full disclosure on Jan. 15.
-And the ultimate, sacrificial tweet… even birds are interested in what’s going on at ArcticInsider.com.
Stay tuned for more Tweets next week.
