1993 Polaris XLT GOOD???

Hello, i just bought a 1993 Polaris XLT , Everything in it is stock , not sure how many KM or MILES are on it, But the guy didnt use it much at all, very good condition, cleaned out the carbs and stuff seems to be running Awesome , have 120 compression in all 3 cylinders.

Was wondering How good and reliable are these sleds? and is there a good rating to set my Clutches to, to make it faster ? and what brakes on them alot?

Would be great if people could Share some info

Thanks alot.

All older polaris' are reliable for the most part, 120 compression is acceptable... you'll be able to enjoy quite a few winters on that sled

10/11 season: 1014 miles
My sled:
03 z440 sno pro w/ 3000 miles
-Fresh Top End
-white handguards
-4 inch riser
-1.375 inch track

rest of the fleet:

Just dont put pipes on it. Cranks in those motors are time bombs. I bought mine from a guy last winter and when he had it it threw a rod out through the base. I bought it after he put a different crank in it and the 3rd bearing on the clutch side went on it. Sled only had 100 miles on it since he rebuilt it. I drilled the oil hole out bigger in the crank case and hoped for the best. Theres a couple threads on here about the older XLT cranks and how to doctor them up. I'd have a look. Or...yours could last 10 more years and never skip a beat!!
