Picked up an M8 a few months ago on the “heroin” credit plan (first four months, interest free). Excited to have something that might be safer and easier to handle than our Yamaha Nytro. But, next thing I know I get a recall notice to have the ECU reprogrammed. On advice of dealer, I pull ECU and leave it with him, thus bricking our brand new snowmobile as snow sifts down outside and my sled friend heads up the Flat Tops for some fun. Getting pretty used to snowmobile companies and dealers over-promising and under-delivering, but this one takes the cake, eh? Our 2011 M8 cinder block with the Arctic Cat logo!
At any rate, might as well use the brick as garage sculpture, and yeah, we’ll probably be driving it soon so shut my whine faucet. Check out my “minimalist” ski and luggage rack design. Click images to enlarge.
