Warming Up Your Snowmobile
- Release the parking brake; increase the throttle; and move slowly until the engine, drive belt, and track are warmed up fully.
- If the snowmobile doesn’t move, stop the engine, and check for a frozen track or seized brake.
- To free a frozen track, lift the back of the snowmobile about 10–12 inches off the ground and then bounce the back of the snowmobile on the ground. Repeat as necessary.
- To repair a seized brake, seek the advice of a mechanic.
Be a Wise Energy User
- Warm up the engine after you start it. Ride at low speeds for a few minutes.
- Avoid gunning the engine and jackrabbit starts, which waste fuel.
- Keep your engine tuned correctly to get maximum mileage.
- Use trails close to your home to minimize transportation costs.
