JD, What do you mean (speedo cycle)?
Question, 2008 Prowler 650 has factory tires. I use the vehicle around my place to work and ride. It causes groves in soft ground and tears up the grass.
Is it possible to get wider tires with less tread. Any thoughts appreciated.
Sounds to me like the problem is the dealer not wanting to do warranty work OR they are being pais by AC to di it AND charging you on top of it. I have seen that many times. The starter issue that keeps happening is not only with this model but the Thundercat atv also. Arctic Cat now has a T-Cat starter upgrade, maybe it will work for you guys too.I have a 2009 model 700 HI XTX. I'm on the third starter in less than 60 hours of operation. I think the problem is a lack of a compression release system; at least there's no mechanism in the parts lookup from Arctic Cat. I'm going to haul it 300 miles one-way to the dealer AGAIN, but I don't have any hope they will be able to remedy this problem.
Another problem I have is dust - the intake for the engine and the tranny are both located in the middle just above the underbody pan. It sucks up dust like a vacuum cleaner. An inch was in the bottom of the tranny during the last inspection. I've "engineered" two 1.5-inch PVC pipes to rise behind the headrests and next to either side of the roll cage. It looks crappy, but they work. I'm ordering 30" crome automotive exhaust tips to replace the PVC to make it look better, but this is really poor design that should be recalled and fixed by Arctic Cat, probably rerouting intakes near the radiator.
Finally, the emergency brake has a crimp in the cable at the pedal the way it's designed, and the cable needs a factory recall to give it a more linear routing.
I've spent $1500 in maintenance/repairs not covered under warantee, and would not recommend Arctic Cat at this time. If the repairs are made and effective, then I might change my story, because when it runs, it's awesome.
