Default 16 zr5000 lxr

Any reviews/thoughts on this sled. Looking for a sled for the wife. Like the thought of a 4 stroke for reliability. Not too familiar with this particular sled. Found one pretty much brand new just under 500 miles that I can get for 4700. Thinking on pulling the trigger. Would like to hear thoughts. Thanks

I have a '15, close but different clutching. new you could get them for about $8500
around here so that seems like a good price. I have 7500 miles on mine now that
I bought new nov. '15, have had to replace a couple bearings in idler wheels, the belt
at 5200 just for the sake of it, didn't blow or anything. takes a little getting used to
engine braking and front end feels heavy when it gets rough. but I really like the
sled as I am just a trail cruiser anyway.

Go with the big windshield the ProCross sleds are a little colder to ride then the Barney sleds before the ProCross.

She will enjoy the no two stroke smell after a day of riding, gas and go.

correct on the windshield and cold factor,
the lxr does come with a mid height shield, but here is a larger one available.
And being a sufferer of bad allergys the no 2 stroke smoke is better for me
