O.K.... Love mine, its a great sled to ride. Has its pros and cons, but for me mostly pros.
Its fast, good top end speed, you'll be able to keep up with alot of more powerful newer sleds.
It has the reputation of being a little slower out of the hole then some sleds, i wouldn't know, never gone head to head, but i can feel a surge around 20 mph and it really takes off, i don't race, so doesn't bother me a bit.
I've heard they fly on ice as long as its studded, never been on a lake with mine yet. I've opened her up on a nice groomed straightaway and it took off.
It seems to hug the trails, course this has a lot to do with the suspension setup.
There are lots of mods available for these sleds, including front and rear suspension upgrades. I swapped out my skid this summer. I sit higher and have a lot more travel, more comfort now, good for me sore ol' back. Haven't had it in the snow yet so i'll have to tinker to get it to "grip" as well as last year.
Seems to be lots of used parts available too.
Its a triple so you'll chew back the gas a lot quicker then some. Its a heavy sled, 600lbs dry i think. So if you get stuck be prepared for a workout.
You'll get a lot of people saying beware the triples middle cylinder cause they blow. May be, and it may happen, i don't really know. I've only had mine half a year, but i think like with anything routine maintenance is the key.
How much are they asking?
...my two cents
