#1 the adjustable post parts from the cat dealer like on the 09 up sno pro around 200 bucks for the parts.I am doing my 06 this year but is going to cost me more I have the old post with out the curve so thear will be cutting and welding and new bars.#2 make sure you have the adjustable post.then the side vents.thear is alot of untaped power under that hood just watting for you to pour your money at

Get the underhood bag from cat also, great for keeping a pair of spare goggles in, or keeping the strudels from Deb up at the store nice and warm!

The two wheel kit is cheap, 20 bucks I think, and helps with sidehilling/carving.

Here is a great bag also, http://www.sledsolutions.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=655, they do have a bag that is slightly smaller also. Here is a pic of it sitting on a kitty rack.


Also, scratchers for sure! Yer gonna need them for trail banging over there in Minnenosnowta.

Scottiking, for a small fee i can show you how to ride it! HeHe

09-15-2009, 06:20 PM
Consider the Cat tunnel supports to keep it from kinking the boards/tunnel right by your feet. They may not be needed for mellow riding, but they are cheap insurance.

09-15-2009, 09:40 PM
Scotti - Nice lookn ride. I'd consider this complete custom XP sled wrap. haha.


09-16-2009, 09:24 AM
that pic is SO small I can't see it! is that a RMK? ha ha

09-18-2009, 05:36 PM
I'd suggest polishing the tunnel. Take a solid 6-8 hours including taking off the stickers but it would be sweet! (Mothers powerball works great.)

Otherwise a "gas thingy" or rack bag from AC.
Or both if your patches!

09-20-2009, 08:28 AM
I bot the handlebar bag from snobunji & love it!

I also have the tunnel bag from cat. I'm looking at a underhood bag for xtra goggles now. By far I use the handlebar bag the most.


09-20-2009, 07:31 PM
got ant pic's m8man?

scotty this is a great add-on for any m sled you will have a hard time seeing you gauges this is a product made by after market products, the best part is it lets alot heat out from under the hood!!!


09-27-2009, 10:11 AM
Rusty, is that the AMP one, or the one made by Wildchild from Snowest?

09-27-2009, 10:16 AM
yeah that is a nice pice what did you have to give for that.?

AMP-9006 Arctic Cat Billet Gauge Cage*

Having trouble reading your RPM’s and track speed on your ‘08/’09 M-sled speedometer? This mount relocates your stock speedo so it can be read while standing up and also acts as a vent to allow heat to escape from the engine compartment.

Chris Burandt says, "I put one on my sled earlier this year and I haven't blown a belt yet. It sucks the heat out of the engine compartment like a chimney!"

The Gauge Cage* is hogged out from aircraft quality billet aluminum, weighs only 6.4 ounces, and comes with all mounting hardware, drilling template, and complete instructions.

* - Patent Pending

Fits: Arctic Cat ‘08/’09/2010 M-Series or CrossFire sleds.

first BLING ive ever had on a sled..lol

they are 100$

rode with a guy who had one last year sure let alot heat out and you can see it standing up perfect

09-27-2009, 10:26 AM
yep thats the one...

walking around sunday at Haydays I seen switch covers for the kill swithch and for the heater controls I will post some pics later today.

this will keep you fromn shutting the sled off in a steep pull or in deep pow as i did that last year and had the sled roll down the hill {nailed me on the way down}

09-27-2009, 11:44 AM
I wanna see this kill switch thing.

09-27-2009, 12:27 PM
here ya go cuzz.


09-27-2009, 01:57 PM
Pretty slick. Where did you get it?

09-27-2009, 03:28 PM
boondockers its not on ther site..need to call them on the phone!!


09-27-2009, 10:15 PM
Nice! I like the that billet guage cage and the kill switch cover- I can see hitting that kill switch!
anyone know if you can add a 2 inch riser or 4 with out changing cables?

Scottiking OUT

09-27-2009, 10:27 PM
2" for sure scottiking, not sure about the 4".

09-27-2009, 10:30 PM
i just added a 3 inch and i could've gone 4 but there wasn't a 4 in. at the wausau swap meet that was only $5

09-27-2009, 10:31 PM
but a lot of people have told me not to go bigger than 2.. it all depends on your sled.

09-27-2009, 10:32 PM
I have a five inch riser on my 2008. You're good with a four if you reroute stuff. I had the same riser I have now on the 2007 M6 I traded in.

10-06-2009, 02:32 AM
if you look up by my stering post you will see the siver bag!!!That is for your googles,when the hood is closed you have a warm pair of goggles..

when it comes to a riser--you can get the parts for the upgrade to 09m cat with riser..its around 200$ but worth it...

10-08-2009, 12:35 PM
rusty1577 - that goggle bag is sweet. where did you get that thing ? thanks !

10-08-2009, 03:34 PM
from arctic cat...

10-09-2009, 12:59 AM
rusty- what parts do I need to get that telescoping kit??
Thanks Scottiking OUT

10-09-2009, 06:25 AM
Rusty--> What did you do to get your belt off? I can't get my secondary clutch to open. Not sure if I'm doing it right.

10-09-2009, 09:53 PM

look just below this thread as someone brought it to the top...

take the bolt out, pull the silver thing out of the middle---turn around and then put the bolt right back in this will then open the clutch..

you can also just pull the clutch off with the belt still on you just cant get it back on that way...

10-10-2009, 02:50 PM
Thanks Rusty! I just tried it, worked perfectly. I was trying to get it open like a firecat, where you remove the shims..that didn't work. When I changed the weights last year i had to remove the whole clutch, thats no fun when you know there is a right way!

10-10-2009, 03:21 PM
scottiking: If its true that 07, 08, 09 are the same then you need this part #-->5639-153 KIT,ADJ STEERING POST '09 M STD

Thats what it says on the Arctic Cat box. That steering post is sweet!

10-10-2009, 03:50 PM
Thanks Sabercat!

Anyone put a "y" pipe and can on one of these?
I heard it wakes up the throttle responce!
What brand is best? SLP,straightline performance? D&D??
Thanks Scottiking

Check Snowest, lots of M1000 Info. Check under helpful link on the M Series page


11-04-2009, 08:15 AM
Putting the 44/40 helix on is supposed to help with response and shifting in low altitude. (0-3000)

11-16-2009, 10:32 PM
OK- so far... I got the snowbunji handlebar bag and trunkbag,straightline can and "y"pipe, that front screen kit, the 2 wheel kit, Think I might just get a 2 or 3 inch riser instead of getting the new stering post-dont want to spend the $200 bucks for that!

Ah.. lets see- whats next?

'10 cat (or boss) seat. Huge difference. Also from what I can tell with the '10 seat it's going to make the telescoping bars less useful as they seemed fine all the way up while sitting now that the seat is 3" higher.

11-17-2009, 10:27 PM
I have a 5" riser on my M8 and a Boss seat (4 inch rise) and it is definitely much better when sitting.

11-17-2009, 11:28 PM
I think I might just put a 3 incher on and call it good!
I dont want to spend the dough on the seat- I hardly ever sit anywho!
