if your coming off a modern era RMK< going to a plain jane Viper is going to be a HUGE upgrade on trail and huge let down OFF trail! IMO
two totally different animals!
and IMO a good well cared for NEWER 2 stroke is about just as reliable as any 4 stroke on the market, it will just need motor work sooner
the rest of the maintenance on the sled will be the same too

there are pro's and con's to both, but honestly in today's age of high tech 2 strokes, there pretty darn reliable, if you do your part in taking care of them, SAME for the 4 strokes,!

A 2000 Polaris RMK with 80s trailing arms isnt in the same league as a Nytro or Viper. The Viper is the machine to get, the 1049cc triple is a bear from 0-90 and it works great paired with the ProCross chassis. I loved my 09 Nytro XTX (sled was a rocket, modified, beat 800 2 strokes) and I regret selling my 14 Viper XTX.
(Deephaven and dsko are forums clowns, dont pay any attention to their posts.
Do what I and many others have, add them to your ignore list
..pm me if you need help doing so.)
Good luck with your choice, my 14 XTX was a late model and had all the 15 updates, with the Float 3s and new sensor.

NO from that era to the 14's up will be a total different sled and a big upgrade to you all over IMO
I think the XTX viper will be more your liking if you plan any off trail riding
or at least look for maybe a
viper/cat XF 7000(same sled more or less) with a deeper lug track to help you off trail
the main draw back of the 7000's/vipers will be heavier up front when off trail in deeper snow!

wider skis will help here too

and again, look into the rollover mod for these motors if you plan to ride off trail
it will save your motor and there not that bad to install or buy

I HAD a 2015 Cat XF 7000 too, liked the sled a lot, NOT as sport as a two stroke of like Hp IMO< but still a strong motor and a bunch of power to enjoy it
just added front end weight some what to deal with,
set up right they handle very well!
just like any sled, set up MAtters!

I have ridden the following sleds:

- 121" Nytro (yuck)
- 129" Viper
- 137" Viper
- 144" Nytro XTX

And hands down the fastest and best riding of the 4 is the 144" Nytro XTX. However, the Viper has better ergonomics, better wind protection, better storage options, more fuel capacity, and is better looking IMHO.
