    Economy must be damned good: Just about every touring sled I’ve inquired about was sold. May have to look at new leftovers.

    How to tell how worn out a track is? Looking at a Yamaha with 5,000 miles. The original seller (Mom’s) claimed they were all “Canadian miles.” Based on the current owner’s service experience, nothing they say is credible. Stock track is 1-1/2”.

    better pics would help.

    are you looking for a worn out sled in need of general maintenance now or in the near future?

    are you looking for a sled to ride or one to work on?

    Hard to get pics as sled is in a garage on the floor.


    Looking for a 2-up sled less than ten years old that needs nothing. Our budget range is $4,000 to $8,000.

    On that track, look for cracking/dry rotting like any other rubber item. Check the track clips to see if any are missing, look for torn/missing lugs, look for frayed cords on the sides hanging off.

    Im a polaris guy, you seem to be a skidoo/yamaha guy, but the AXYS sleds are pretty incredible and you can add an accessory seat to the rush/switchback models. They even have heated grips for the passenger!

    a 137 switchback pro-s with the added seat could be just what youre looking for....

    I’d like to get a Polaris, just have to find the right one for our needs.

    That Yamaha Venture weighs 760 lbs!

    unless your only going to keep it for a year or two at the most i'd stay away from polaris.

    the yamaha while heavier will out last the polaris.

    polaris stickers on your trailer are great as a theft deterrent.

    Arctic Cat puzzles me. According to club members they have excellent suspensions, but they seem to change engine manufacturers like women change hats.

    What about Ski Doo 4-Tec? Aren’t those Rotax-built?

    id stay away from any and all cats

    i never cared for how they were built.

    I've never cared for the 4-tec

    its hard to doo better than one of the new ace motors
    a 600 with no power or a 900 with only a little power

    the brand new polaris's are ok, but why get something thats just ok when for the same money you can get something better.
    if you picked up one with 6-800 miles you should be ok.

    when there motors blow up its usually in the first couple of hundred miles.

    Re: Snowmobilers

    Always been pretty brand agnostic. Would like to stick with four strokes but a low mileage 2 stroke is fine.

    I honestly think 4 stroke seems more up your alley

    Re: Snowmobilers

    We still have a 2 stroke outboard and chainsaws and leaf blower. 2 stroke seems to make sense in a snowmobile application.

    But we’re “Commune with nature” riders and the trails are narrow, twisty and hilly in our area. So power at the expense of durability doesn’t work for us.

    Re: Snowmobilers

    There is a 2013 Polaris Pro X 800 FS nearby. But is that the correct model designation?

    Iíve heard cautionary tales about Bombardier 800, what about Polaris?

    Pro X is for ripping and jumping, pro S is for trail riding. You don't want the pro X. It is taller, tipper, lower gearing, stiffer springs, different back country track (if it is still stock)

    Though, if you put a 2 up seat on the pro S, you have to add the pro X rear spring.

    Re: Snowmobilers

    Looking at used prices for what are basic 4 stroke machines, is it crazy to buy new? Seems like the dealers are throwing some pretty big discounts.

    Is it correct to assume that Christmas - New Year is a good time to buy?

    spring and summer is usually the best time to buy a sled.

    christmas is a good time to buy a excavator or a dozer

    Re: Snowmobilers

    With over a foot of snow here in central Mass I expect all the sleds that are priced well to sell very quickly. I took my Switchback out for a Brap last night and rode it in the open field across the street for a bit. The 2019 600 has plenty of poke for me.
