Newb buying question:
Shopping for a sled in the 1000.00 mark. Found a 2001 RMK 500 w/2300 miles that needs a windshield, otherwise looks good (haven't gone and looked at any yet, waiting for hubby to get home from ND and give the ok). Another, a little over the mark but dooable is a 97 Sport Touring 440 2-up. Really like the looks of this machine and that it's a 2-up. But I wonder about it being a 440. I am almost 200lbs. My daughter is another 100. I don't care to race, but hey, the one at the back of the pack gets taken down by predators! I know nothing. I rode a newer 550 and it is sweet. But machines in that age group are not in my budget at this point.
Am I right, in that the 440 is air cooled while the 500 is liquid? Anyway, input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Michelle
