3. Check your snowmobile steering. Turn the handlebars in both directions and make sure they move freely, and the skis turn along with the handlebars.
4. Next, check the oil, fuel and coolant and top off if necessary. You should also take a moment to check for any leaks. If you find one, repair it before your next ride.
5. Double check that all storage compartments, hood, and accessories are secured properly.
6. Squeeze the throttle and brake levers several times to ensure both move freely without obstruction.
7. Apply and release the parking brake to see if it works properly. Look at the brake fluid reservoir near the brake lever and check the fluid level.
8. Inspect your drive belt. A quick look inside the left side panel is all you need. If you notice signs of wear like cracks, flat spots or peeling, be sure to change it. Check that it sits at the proper height between the clutch sheaves: you should be able to see the bottom of the drive belt cogs. Adjust the belt height according to the instructions in your Ski-Doo Operator’s Guide if necessary.
