If you own or ride a 2004 Firecat (or Sabercat) you might want to pay close attention. There is an oil line under the engine that is known to chafe and can actually break, and we all know what happens when a 2-stroke doesnâ€™t get any oil.
If you tip the sled up on the PTO side and remove the belly pan (12 screws) you will find the oil line and a place where there is a black piece of plastic that is supposed to protect it from chaffing and becoming damaged. Take a piece of something like a garden hose or rubber tubing a couple inches long and split it and place the length around the oil line in this area to protect it. Secure it with a couple of zip ties to keep it in place. When you find this youâ€™ll understand, and your engine and pocket book will thank you. Thanks to â€œRandy in Ontarioâ€ for this tip!
