The 800 should bolt into the 600 chassis. You have all the stuff in the 800 to make it work if the 600 mounting doesn't fit. The Polaris website shows that the wiring harness is used in both, so you should be good there. The site also shows the same ECU. I'd at least try it, there's not much to lose.

Here's a link to the Polaris website

to bad we're so far away. I have a dragon chassis in my yard that has a completely blown 800. Crank issues, crank case busted.

I was thinking about stripping it down and seeing if I can get a skidoo 503 motor stuffed in there. Why? Because I have a 503 motor that needs a chassis. ha!

Yeah meanwhile the two of us in the Midwest sit here and suffer with temps above 90 during the summer & humidity ranging from 65-80 sometimes,lol. Hence one reason why I was looking so hard at moving to Alaska in the next year or two but the prices for housing are just so out of range for someone who is disabled.

We do have seasons, just a little bit different:

Breakup - that time when the snow is mushy and you can't really ride very much unless you haul everything 200 miles away to the mountains.

Summer - June and July, the sunlight is always there and so are the mosquitos. No darkness at all...except when the smoke from forest fires cover the sun. Right now it is 77 degrees outside. (June 17th). The sun sets for about 2 hours, but it never gets dark until August. August is a 50/50 chance of either being to wet to do anything fun or/and just everyone saving up for hunting season.

Hunting Season - Only last a few weeks, everyone has worked on their boats and 4 wheelers prepping for this 2 weeks.

The boring time - Two cold to do anything outside, but no snow yet (Sept-Oct).

First snow time - Not really deep enough to ride, but some people do. Specially fanners and small machines (old Tundra/Bravos), but water is still not frozen so limited access

Thanksgiving - Kind of marks the first time anyone dares to go across the lakes. After the first person makes it, then others will ice-fish and we learn the true thickness of the ice.
Some years we have lots of snow, other years we have no snow yet.

Darkness - Nov-Dec-Jan-Feb are dark. Sun rises for about 2 hours in Dec and even then it is just barely up. Most riding is in the dark, of course. However, these are also the coldest months and by coldest, I mean -20F and colder for a good portion of them.

March-April - Prime riding season. Warmer, more light, and typically all the snow we'll get for the year.
