Default polaris xlt 600 triple

So, my buddy has a sled that he says he blew the motor on a couple years ago. I said I would try and help him out and try to find him a motor. just wondering if anyone knew of a place to get motors,(web sites, local places) or have work done on sled motors. I have only the limited info he told me about it, and I dont know anything about snowmobiles. He says its a 1996 polaris 600 triple xlt. he said he had just got it rebuilt and he took it out and was gonna go catch his dad on another sled, went to get on it and it just died. tried to pull it and couldnt... had to haul it back to the truck a few miles back,lol. thanks in advance...

XLT performance just north of Bay City rebuilds them. I'm sure a phone call could get you in the right direction of places on that side of the state or process to do it.

I have a cousin in Wayland that just rebuilt his 95, and i'll be rebuilding my dad's 96 XLT soon.... Once I move Pop's crap out of the way so I can use the workshop.

Any chance he wants to sell it?

Attached a quick info sheet about XLT motors....

Sounds like he didn't break it in enough or leaned out a cylinder after rebuilding it.

If he does get it rebuilt remember that it needs to run rich for break in. So this likely means that you should up the main jet a size or 2 for a few hundred miles. Also we like to add some pre mix oil to the gas to give it a bit more oil. only the first tank though.
