Winter Sports - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

First off if you have a 4 bolt pattern board it will look like this * * * * what you want to do is set the              * * * * Bindings on the board about shoulder length apart and thenfind the corresponding holes in underneath the slots in the bindings base. once you find the holes look at the edges of the round inserts, they have degree markings on them. i angle my binding about 15 degrees forward for the front one and 15 degrees back for the back one. This is a very freestyle oriented setup. for learning i would go 30 dergrees forward on the front and 15 degrees back on the back. and there you go your set to ride.Make sure you tighten all the screws very tight you dont want them coming loose on the mountain.also do not use locktight on the screws it can damage your board.

It could be many different items, choke stuck, ignition switch etc. but more importantly have you taken care of your recall?

I did a lot of research on forums about this and wanted to consolidate the results:1. Don't use WD40, it attracts dust and grime later, use Silicon Spray or graphite dust2. The main reason I'm posting, once it's free to open, lubricate behind the sliding locking bars with Silicon Spray, this helps A LOT.3. Also consider what I did which helps 99% of the rest of the way: buy a couple feet of PVC, large enough to cover the sliding locking bars, cut it in half the long way, attach it to the box over the locking bars (I drilled holes and used zip ties).The only remaining issue I have now is if I pile stuff too high and it puts upward pressure on the box lid, so don't do that. ;-)As to the PVC, I think it was 1", and in fact it was not really big enough to completely cover the locking bars, so I didn't tighten the zip-ties down all the way, if I did it again I'd get bigger pipe or heat it and flatten it out a bit, but I just tested this setup on a 1200 mile trip and it worked great, noticeably smoother opening and closing.

We figured this one out today, after pounding, twisting, sliding, gerunding, etc.

It will not slide backward (as a safety mechanism, of course) unless your latches (the ones that connect / clamp onto the car) are completely loose. That means, that looking at the rack from the end, you'll see this oblong deal that you'll use to tighten the rack to a car. As you turn it clockwise the rack will tighten, right?

Ok. Just make sure that that guy is as loose as he gets, and your piece will slide back just fine.

Unscrew it from the back of the speedometer and follow it back to where the cable terminates at the hub of the track. Undo it there and replace it with the new one. ..

I don't definitely know but taking a guess, assuming the fuel pump switches off after a while - fuel is a valuable part of the cooling of the fuel injection system and it could be the fuel pump keeps running to circulate fuel and carry away some of the heat that initially increases after switching off and could otherwise damage sensitive components.

It's pretty basic and old school on all 550's and 380's unplug the back of the ignition ( it will now start without the key using the pull cord) remove the rubber boot from the ignition and unscrew the nut holding the ignition. Don't know why it needs replacement they pretty much never fail my 09 gtx 550 has over 12k and no problem except freezing occasionally.
