The annual Appolson’s Performance Center snowmobile demo rides have been scheduled for January 27th. The demo rides, along with a picnic lunch, will be held out of their Hamburg showroom from 10:30-2:00 pm. There will also be a youth sled on hand for kids to try out. Those wanting to try the new 2018 line-up may sign up online at http://bit.ly/2018APCSnowDemo for a timeslot.
Due to the great winter Western New York is seeing in 2018, the dealership is also offering a customer appreciation ride-in and ride-out that day as well. Customers will be able to ride their sleds on the trail system to the store, have a picnic lunch, and then head out on a customer appreciation ride at 3 pm. Those customers wishing to demo ride along the way on the trails can also sign up at the above website.
Sign-ups will be collected until slots are filled or through noon on January 25th, whichever comes first. For more information, you can contact Appolson’s Performance Center at 716-649-1090, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or via their website at appolson.com.
It’s hard to believe we are just days from the end of June. It wasn’t a great winter for snow enthusiasts in Western New York, but many of our customers told us they were able to get some good riding in up north and down in the Chautauqua region. While we provide summerization at our service shop, we understand some people like to take the wrench to their own machines too.
First things first, give your machine a good and thorough cleaning. When storing any machine for an extended period of time, store it with gas in the tank (the fuller the better) in order to reduce the risk of condensation forming. You should add fuel stabilizer to the tank. If you have a fuel injector, add injector cleaner to that as well. Run the engine to temp and then fog the motor.
Degrease your motor and suspension, including using forced air to blow off excess water. Use silicone spray on the engine compartment and suspension as well. Grease all of the applicable points. Check your chain case oil and coolant levels. Remove your drive belt. If your sled has a battery, remove it, charge it, and put it on a shelf. Then it’s time to put your sled to bed for the summer season.
