Operating a Clean, Quiet Machine

Proper Maintenance

An improperly adjusted track system hurts performance and increases emissions and noise. Consult your owner’s manual before you attempt any adjustments or repairs. Taking your machine to a licensed snowmobile mechanic may be best.

Additional Steps

Beyond a pre-season check-up and regular maintenance, there are additional things you can do to make sure your snowmobile runs cleaner and quieter.

  • Use high-grade oil and gasoline.
  • Tune the engine for your altitude, including the proper carburetor jet setting.
  • Change the spark plugs at least once during the season.
  • Avoid opening and closing the throttle continuously.
  • Don’t tamper with your exhaust pipes to increase the noise of your machine.
