Updating 2016 arctic cat m7
Throughout the summer and fall we will be working with Sno West Forum members to build the perfect snowmobile …
and then we will give it away to a Forum member at the end of the build.)Since our last installment, we’ve been busy on two fronts: first, analyzing the comments of forum members on what you would like to see on this Project Cat; and second, visiting with key Cat engineers on what direction they would like to see the project go.
Cat is still reviewing the comments of forum members and our suggestions for additional modifications …
and we will likely get back to business within a few days after they give us their blessing on a few of our suggestions.
First, the top suggestions were to do exactly what we’ve started—upgrade the 2015 Arctic Cat M 8000 Sno Pro with 2016 parts.
Second on the list were the suggestions to change the front and rear suspensions.
Of course, by upgrading to 2016 parts, we’ve made vast improvements on the suspension. Although many of the suggestions were to add a lightweight can, others felt that specific exhaust systems from companies like Starting Line Products or Diamond S would be the best way to go.
But still there were a lot of interest in looking at aftermarket suspensions such as KMod, Skinz or Tom’s. The chart below shows in order (first column) the number of requests for this particular modification, (second column) type of modification and (third column) the specific brand names mentioned and how many times they were mentioned.
We’re sure Arctic Cat is closely reviewing this list as well, looking at what snowmobilers want and trying to figure out how they can improve their snowmobiles to meet these specific needs in the future.
