Ski-Doo LED Headlight Best Product Review

Ski-Doo LED Headlight Best Product Review

A Ski-Doo LED Headlight will impress anyone riding after dark on their snowmobile tour or snowmobile vacation. It installs quickly and easily below your sled’s regular headlight (Ski-Doo snowmobiles only). It integrates so neatly that it’s hardly noticeable – until you turn it on.

BRP XPS Synthetic Snowmobile Oil Review

BRP XPS Synthetic Snowmobile Oil Review

Here’s my BRP XPS synthetic snowmobile Oil review…I should have twigged that oil had changed when my first Ski-Doo E-TEC® engine didn’t seem to use any. Little did I know how dramatic a story was behind that oil change – and it’s continued with the new Rotax™ super high tech 850 E-TEC engine. So this column is about 2-stroke oil. …

Rotax 900 ACE Engine Best Fuel Economy

Rotax 900 ACE Engine Best Fuel Economy

The Rotax 900 ACE engine delivers the best fuel economy. I can get about 340 kilometres per tank of gas.

Although I’m no tecky, I can speak with some authority …

Snowmobile Ice Scratchers Best Product Review

Snowmobile Ice Scratchers Best Product Review

A while back I wrote a review on snowmobile ice scratchers for your snowmobile tour or snowmobile vacation. Although I fully endorsed the concept and appreciated their lubricating benefits, ultimately I wasn’t impressed with any that I’d tried to date. My non-endorsement was primarily because I’d found no reliable way to keep any scratchers fastened up and out of the way when …

900 ACE Rotax Snowmobile Engine Product Review

900 ACE Rotax Snowmobile Engine Product Review

Choose 900 ACE Rotax because this engine is one awesome powerplant. After riding more than 500 aggressive kilometres (310 miles) on some of Quebec’s finest trails, I’m totally sold. There’s no doubt in my mind that BRP’s 900 ACE is the real deal. Eight of us went on this tour, taking turns riding my Renegade Adrenaline 900 ACE and a GSX LE 900 ACE from …
