BRP has been busy issuing new product bulletins lately, here is rundown on the latest: 

New LinQ removable snowflap offers Ski-Doo deep snow riders more performance

BRP is introducing a new LinQ Removable Snow Flap for 2018 that will give deep snow riders even better performance. The ability to remove the snow flap allows snow to move more freely through a snowmobile’s tunnel, reducing drag and maintaining a rider’s momentum in deep snow.

The LinQ Removable Snow Flap let’s a rider choose between the normal mounting position, for the trail ride into play areas so they can maintain proper engine cooling, or top of tunnel mounting for deep snow - where plenty of snow reaches the heat exchangers. With the unique and renowned LinQ system, changing positions is fast, easy and secure.

The kit reuses the stock snow flap and fits Summit and Freeride models built on the new REV Gen4 platform having track lengths 154” and longer. Model year 2018 sleds have pre- marked tunnels and snowflaps to make installation even easier.

BRP adds remote activation to Adjustable Limiter Strap for Ski-Doo snowmobiles

BRP introduced the adjustable limiter strap for tMotion rear suspensions two years as a quick easy way to adjust deep snow handling on Summit and Freeride snowmobiles. This year the concept is taken further to a remotely controlled system for even easier and quicker operation.

Riders benefit from being able to quickly adjust their ride between a playfully light and agile set-up, to a more connected one where the track approach angle gets much more gradual and the skis don’t lift as easily. By making it remotely activated, the dial like switch is mounted on the handlebar riser; riders can now change positions by twisting a knob rather reaching down by their feet to flip a lever.

The kit should also prove popular with the cross-over crowd as it also fits the new cMotion rear suspension on the 2018 Backcountry models. If a rider wants more positive steering on the trail, they can move it to the shorter position, but when going off trail -switching to the longer position will provide better deep snow handling, in a very quick and convenient way. Adjustment range is equivalent to 2 holes on a conventional limiter strap (1.3 inches/34 mm), with 2 settings to choose from: holes three (stock position) to five, or two to four.

The kit is available for all tMotion and cMotion suspensions from 2013 – 2018.
