Hello from WI,

Recently bought a new 2014 550 Prowler. Also have a 2008 500 TRV.
Looks like this is a pretty informative site.

welcome to the house ... lots of single cylinder knowledge around here so feel free to ask away anything you might not know or want to hear about , as well a some great wrenches and fabricators to advise on things in general.

glad to see you filled in the location , now do you signature so later on when you ask a question we won't have to ask what you have bla bla bla

BTW we have a tradition around here .. the new guy gets to brew morning coffee and bring a load of wood for the fire pit ,, you turn again welcome to the house . Oh and some of us get up real early so don't dilly dally on the coffee

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

We have put on about 140 miles on the trails. Have used it quite a bit around the yard. Did have to take it back to the dealer to have a seal replaced in the rear shaft. We like it. Gets the job done. We got it to use for making wood. Decided to sell our snowmobile and get the UTV because my wife gets cold to fast when we would go snowmobiling. She really enjoys the UTV. Would never drive the snowmobile, but loves to drive the utv.

Love making coffee early in the morning. Is it ok if I make it in a peculator on the camp stove? That's the best. I also have plenty of wood. Will load up the UTV and bring it on over.

Sounds familiar! Sold our snowmobile last winter, just to cold for this old fart! We love to ride our Prowler, and we are fortunate to live in a rural area! Bought mine to plow our driveway when I retired, then found out that we could ride many places near our house! Been riding and tinkering ever since!
