    Does the 2010 swt have a heat exchanger above the track? I've got screws in my 2010 the last3 years or so and haven't had a problem. I'm almost positive my 2010 does not have a heat exchanger under carriage. (?).

    Thanx for the price quote...rep sent.
    Your sarcasm is way, waaaayyyyyyyy more sarcastic than mine! :whistle:

      My '09 has a heat exchanger above the drivers I'm pretty sure the '10 does too.

        I run screws in my track but don't run them in the middle section of the track where the heat exchanger is. 2014 600 Etec SWT. I get some contact in the very back of the tunnel where it turns down. Not any real damage just screw tracks and they come from going to fast down really moguly trails where the back articulated part of the track pops up and hits the tunnel.

        I have one friend with the 900 Ace in SWT and a couple with the 600 Ace and they really like their machines. I also think there is a 900 Ace machine hauling freight out of Yentna Station.

        I still have a couple 550 fan cooled machines, a 2006 SWT and a 2008 Tundra LT but am thinking of getting rid of them, especially the Tundra. Gas mileage is terrible which means limited range without hauling lots of gas. The only reason I want to keep the SWT is so I have something to ride when the newer one is in the shop.....like it was the whole month of March last year. Fuel pump problems and slow service.

          It is above the track but still close. You have to use the littlest screws. If I remeMber right it was 3/8?

            Go with the 900 Ace is my opinion. I love mine, plenty of grunt for me in Sport mode to keep me happy. Have you heard one run? No? Me neither.....whisper quiet, love that part.Click image for larger version

              Cwoods,

              Any info on your gun mount? Iíve been wanting to do something similar on my SWT and your set up looks slick.

                The gun mount is something I made after I bought the sled. I wanted something tucked in and out of the way yet easy to grab in a hurry. It works for me,not to many ptarmagin get away. I made one for a friend that has a SWT as well, pretty much the same as mine. I positioned them in a way that it doesnt interfere with body movement while riding.Click image for larger version

                  I was just chatting with a fellow from Nuiqsut that has 7000, yes, SEVEN THOUSAND miles on his 900 ACE and he loves it. I would say that is pretty good testimony!

                    I have 19,000 miles on my 2010 SWT four stroke, but also have 12,000 on my 1997 Polaris wide track. The Polaris has all new suspension and low tranny gear but still the same Fuji engine. Both these machines are freight haulers so lots of miles. The part I'm awed by is my SWT still has the original transmission. Also scored and picked up a 2008 bearcat with only 1,200 on it. I am leaning towards 2 stroke because they are easier to work on. My partner has a 800 four stroke expedition and the timing chain broke and killed the crankshaft at 6,000 miles. They don't make the 800 anymore so had to piece it together at twice the price it should of been.

                    Something to think about when it comes to four stroke. I would like to buy 2 or three older 2 stroke models and fix them up before I will ever buy another four stroke. Cant trust the manufacturer to keep the same model going and if your four stroke goes down expect a long wait in winter riding conditions to get it back from the shop.

                    But then again I do have 19,000 miles on mine. Go figure?

                      There was a trapper over here selling a Skandic WT with the ETEC last winter. 14,000 KM. I was real curious if it was the original engine.
                      Fighting gravity is never cheap.

                        a little late to this party but love 900 ace motor i had to chime in. use one for work on the slope, started them down to -30 no problem though i do run dual batts. 900 seems to start easier than 600 or 1200 ace for some reason. lots of low end power for hauling through the deep stuff. put about 4000 miles (hauling double sigglins over bumpy tundra) on one with nothing outside of routine maintenance. now skidoos new hitches on the other hand; had some issues with them

                          by the way this is WT skandic. WT expy would be amazing, would worry a little here in the interior but up on the tundra nothing beats it.

                            Nice gun mount and position! Care to provide some more details on the construction and mounting process you used? Thanks!

                              Well, ponyied up and bought an 2019 expedition 900 sport. Just changed oil and filter on the break in. My review: itís a nice machine. Like the power, and comfort of the ride. Very satisfing. You sit fairly high and hence a bit more tippy than what Iím use to. Love the quite and smoothness of the machine, also the selection of performance. Ego mode is nice in the rough mougles on a trail, helpes to stop the whip knee jerk reactions. Sled For my use seems to be a good fit.
                              MPG: on the break in is around 15. (first hundred miles). Been comfortable and a pleasure to ride with no surprise dislikes so far. I am guessing mpg will go up with a bit more riding. I was not econo-minded during breaking, verying power and throttle pending trail conditions.

                              Ski doo needs to get their act together regarding the linq system. I was told a rack is currently not available for this machine and the cost of their specific boxes is ludicrous. Iíll be fabricating something for my use. Someone needs to tell skidoo engineers: bunges are cheap.

                                Sounds like a great machine, yes all the new machines at least in the utility/sport market are tippy, not sure why they have built them where you site so high.
