Seems like we are seeing more 4 stroke sled pictures being posted for 2009 non currents or 2010 new sleds. What brand, model, & engine did you buy if non current or new sled purchase?

I traded in my 07 SDI Blizzard Skidoo, for a 2010 renagade x etec. I stuck with skidoo because of the handling. And I went with the longer track because I found a lot of secret stashes between bergland and twin lakes last winter. This new 2010 has some big shoes to fill, I loved my blizzard

2009 800 RMK Shift 144. Can't wait to hit the woods, mountains, and have some fun!

I will stick with my 09 X-Fire 800 sp and my wife upgraded to my old 06 X-fire 700 sp from her 04 F-6. I will be adding powder pro skis and either the new Boss seat or the new Cat seat. Any recommendations?

mvedepo, might I suggest a bit of a boost for your XTX?! I hear those make that 4 stroker extra fun!

Yep, fun indeed! "managable amount of power", now that's rich!

Yeah. I guess when you're running through the woods it is a benefit that the skis spend SOME time on the ground. ;-)

I upgraded to an 09' Nytro XTX as well. Bought it in April and am anxiously awaiting the Milwaukee snow show so I can get it accessorized. I won't be attempting to get 200 hp out of it any time soon but would sure like to see mvedepo fly across the lake.

Cool Mike. We should definately get out for a ride. Let's hope for another year like last year. I will be buying a taller windshield, the side deflectors and some saddle bags of some type. My brother and I have done a few bag trips over the years and I enjoy having room to pack. I'm also due for a new helmet, boots, gloves etc etc.... Guess I'll have to remember the checkbook.

I have heard a couple of complaints about the top end of the Nytro XTX. Can anybody tell what they had their NYTRO XTX up to? (TOP SPEED)
By mvedepo on Thursday, October 08, 2009 - 04:16 pm: Edit Post
Nytros are geared for acceleration off the line. They are not lake racers. That being said the XT-X has a higher top end than the short track Nytro. The shorty has a top end around 100 MPH and the XT-X is around 105 MPH.
By doug_miller on Thursday, October 08, 2009 - 10:07 pm: Edit Post
Mike, you are right on with the 105 mph top end. That is what I hit once the sled had over 1000 miles on it.

I doubt I'll get it blown this year. I don't want to miss good riding wrenching. It would be a summer job.

Mike, what info can you give on ski's. I've heard there can be some darting issues with the stock ski's and if that turns out to be true for my sled I'd like to correct that rather then deal with it. Most of my riding will be done on groomed trails so the answer may be in changing out the carbides? Any advice is appreciated. Good plug for the wingdingers Doug.

You probably know if you saw my post (new sled new direction) that I picked-up a 2010 XTX. The reasons are as fallows,long track; better on rough trails,better off trail,four stroke engine will last longer(MORE MILES) than 2 stroke, sounds cool too, no more injection oil, Yamaha builds a quality piece, Factory rep. sugested taller winshild & deflectors,(got those) and maybe mountain skis if going off trail alot, will be looking at those eventually. sorry about the run-on sentance.

Duel runner carbide will get rid of the darting if you don't want to spend $$ on new ski's. They worked fine for me last year but I'am looking for a better ski for off trail.
By cobalt_502 on Saturday, October 10, 2009 - 02:10 pm: Edit Post
One dually on the right ski and a single carbide on the left and there will be zero darting issues! I put the dually on the right side to protect it a little more when riding the side of the road. I ride trail and lakes only and have never had a reason to buy different ski's.
By electraglide1 on Monday, November 09, 2009 - 03:47 pm: Edit Post
cobalt, as mentioned above, I've got an 09 Nytro XTX and I want to take your advice on the dual carbide just on the right side. My question to you, or anyone here who has a similar sled, The Nytro come stock with a 3" carbide only. What do you suggest for the dual? 4"? I don't want to over do it and then have issues with it. Thanks for the help!
By vogelm1 on Monday, November 09, 2009 - 05:11 pm: Edit Post
On the XTX, you'll definitely want to get rid of the stock carbides right away - they're a little short and don't last long. My darting is about completely gone just by adding Bergstrom 8" Triple Point carbides...those along with shimming the back of the ski rubber with a 1/4 or 3/8 piece of plastic (included with the carbides) cured everything.
