Default 2012 Polaris rush 800 pro r

I'm looking at buying a rush I'm trying to decide between a 2011 pro r 600 or a 2012 pro r 800.... Do these sleds have any common problems? Is the 600 more reliable than the 800? What's good what's bad?

Seems most of the issues I've seen on HCS are with the 800... My buddy has a 2011 600 standard and 450 miles so far with no issues, I have 2012 600 pro r and 600 miles no issues. Also, I've heard guys saying the 2011 is faster than the 2012 but not sure if that's the reality....

Buy the 2012, polaris change the front spindles for flatter corning and changed the mounting holes for the rear end for less ski lift. The 800 in the rush has been good.

Seems alot of guys on here are having issues with the 800 blowin up anywhere from 300 miles to 2500 miles...... I'd try to find a 2012 Pro R 600 if I were you. I was debating the 600 or 800 and bought the 600 last year - glad i did after seeing the issues...

I've got a 800 Rush Pro-R with over 4500 miles on it,
I've only had minor issues,(fuel)with it.
I run Northern Ontario so lots of high speed running with up to
350 miles in a day logged.
It,s been a good sled, buy the 8
