I heard they like to eat sparkplugs, so at least you will have something in common with your sled! ha

2500 miles .... I had the "popping out of gear" problem last year ... dealer installed the updated gear set (at approx 1000 miles) and it has not done it since.

The slider wear had me concerned at first .... they wore to the line between the two front wheels withtin the first 500 miles but then stopped wearing so I am still running the original sliders.

So far no major issues, pretty much gas'n go! .... this is the best sled I have ever owned.

Have any of you guys been on an 800xp. I know they are different animals just wondering how they compare. I would like to get the 4 stroke just not ready to ad 50 lbs and lose 25hp.
