Much better sled than your 800 for dependability.

Well, that's pretty awesome because I have 7000 completely trouble free miles on my 800.

Yeah, I hear this about that body style. '14 seems to be a good year- R Motion, new e-drive clutch.. I wanted the XS chassis, but didn't want to spend that much. I am going for my first ride on it (other than the yard) tomorrow!

XR's didn't have the clutch heat issue like the XS. Easy to up grade to a better shock package if you feel the need and 6.9's with snow trackers let you lighten up the front end and rail! You can throw on a pb 80 if you want more performance and keep a few spare relays and a coil wire in your pack and know how to change them and it's just simple maintenance from there. I feel my 12's are the perfect sled for places like Northern Ontario and Quebec. Good fuel range, regular gas, no oil to carry and comfortable as hell with R motion. You have LinQ system and you'll be laughing at your buddies in the morning struggling with their luggage.

I’m glad to here a lot of positive reviews, in process of buying a 2013 mxz tnt 1200 after 14 years away from riding. Hoping for lots of snow this year.

I'm still loving mine. Had it out the other day, starting to prep for the season. Guess the last time I used it was fishing.
