Looking at 2006 RMK 700
Brand newbie here with a question about this sled. I'm looking at an 06 RMK 700 with 1000 mi on it. Got factory installed engine at 500 mi. I've done research and it sounds like it's the same block as the 900, they only made it two years and it's a long stroke. Red flags.
My question is, I've seen comments that it needs "updates." When Polaris installed the new engine, did that take care of it? What did they do differently? I've read about removing the radiator, etc. Is that a mandatory fix?
Lastly, I'm mainly a skier who won't be highmarking, but wants something that will last me a good while. It's a screaming deal, but should I look for something other than this year? (I'm steering away from 8's/9's for reliability's sake)
Thanks for any help!
