Keeping the inside of your goggles dry is the most important aspect of preventing fogging. Most of the moisture inside comes from perspiration and you perspire more when you stop moving which stops the airflow to you face. Consider using a Quickstrap or Speedstrap on you goggles so you can flick them off when you stop moving. Removing your goggles when you stop prevents more sweat from getting into your goggle foam and allows your face to cool off.
No fog sprays and pastes will also help prevent fogging. Putting more than one coat on will work better longer.
For extreme fogging issues, we market a bolt on fan which will automatically turn on when the humidity inside your goggles gets too high. Contact us for Details.

If your fairly new to snowmobiling then you will probably not no how to adjust your snowmobile to fit your riding. One of the most irritating first impressions of a first time rider is if the ski pressure is too much, it can make your arms feel like noodles in a matter of a few hours if there is too much. If your sled feels like it is way too hard to steer then have a look at the front limiter straps on the rear suspension, either have someone, or you can do it yourself. Place a block of wood under the front of the rails to collapse the front shock of the rear skid a little. Then loosen the limiter strap bolts and take the strap loose, put it in one more hole out to make the strap or straps longer. Just one hole will make a huge difference in ski pressure and the snowmobile will be a pleasure to drive and control instead of a work out. The opposite is true then the snowmobile will not turn very good on the trails with the skis acting like they won’t bite in the snow, then you don't have enough ski pressure so you would take the straps up a hole to make the straps shorter and put more ski pressure on the snow so the snowmobile will turn better. This adjustment is common on all 4 brands of snowmobiles and has been for a long time.

When using aftermarket exhaust and or bolt on engine upgrades do not mix match manufactures. Running brand X pipe, brand Y, muffler, and brand Z y-pipe will create issues for you.
For some reason a lot of people think that powder coating is real expensive to have done. The reality of it is that it isn't. In most cases powder coating your parts is the same or even less expensive than having them painted at a paint shop.
Another advantage that powder coating provides is that snow doesn't seem to stick to it as much, which equates to extra weight that sometimes can be critical when climbing those hair raising chutes, and easier to keep clean.
One last note , and maybe the most important, is that is far more durable than most paint and tends to not fade from harmful UV rays from the sun. This means that your equipment will stay nice for many years to come. And after all, the better your sled looks the better it will perform for you.

It is very important that we have a fun and safe sledding experience. A key factor to an enjoyable day of riding starts with the emphasis on avoiding incidents or accidents while in route to a riding area. A rider can help enable a safe trip while transporting a sled if the sled has been properly secured. Properly securing a sled is also the Law. Superclamps make the task of securing a sled’s front and rear fast, simple, and theft resistant. The use of a multiuse ski glides like Superglides while loading and unloading a sled not only helps protect the decking or flooring from damage and rash from the skis carbides but provide safety through traction that avoids injury as a result of slipping and falling.
If your not having fun. Your not doing it right.
