Snowmobiling on your Arctic Cat Z-370 is a popular pastime and for some it’s a vital means of transportation during the winter season where snowfall is measured in feet rather than inches. In order to keep your Z370 operating at peak levels, an Arctic Cat Z 370 snowmobile repair manual is an invaluable asset.
The manufacturer will generally publish the owner’s manual that provides a basic overview for operation and general servicing.

- Motor and engine systems
- Braking systems
- Fuel system
- Maintenance and tune-up
What Is a Snowmobile?
While the term can sometimes be used to describe numerous vehicles for snow transport, a ‘snowmobile’ is a motor vehicle that has a track-style propulsion unit on the back and runners, or skis, on the front. They operate in many ways similar to a motorcycle, but are specifically designed for use on snowy terrain.
What You Won’t Find in an Owner’s Manual
Owner’s manuals will generally detail the basics of operation, vital components and parts, service schedules, location of controls, fluid capacities, fuel type, and so forth. If someone wished to repair or upgrade their snowmobile, a user manual will not offer any assistance.
The Value a Snowmobile Repair Manual Offers
Due to the significant limitations of an owner’s and limited access of a factory service manual, a snowmobile repair manual is a valuable asset for those who wish to properly maintain, upgrade, or even repair their vehicle. A quality snowmobile repair manual will offer an assortment of information, including:
- Specifications for upgrading various components of the machine
- Advanced troubleshooting guidelines to assist with determining the origin of performance or functionality problems
- Wiring diagrams that are commonly published in color for ease of tracking
- Details about how to take apart and reassemble the entire snowmobile
