My father-in-law just purchased a 95 650 and would like to know what RXL stands for.

1978 Polaris RXL. I believe they were the first with IFS.

The only thing I dont understand is why the sleds with leaf springs and shocks were on the skis werent independent? I mean the newer sleds with all the sway bars and crap are any thing but independent

SKS had a longer track, usually 136 or 144 and XCR is Cross Country Racer. Standard RXL or Indy 650's had a 121" track.

The SKS track length was 133.5" and that changed to the 136" which was the first RMK in about 1996, if I recall correctly. Polaris did offer a 128" track before they settled on the 133.5" SKS.
