I will certainly ask him that. If I like what I see tonight and decide to buy it, I was going to take it to a dealer close by and have them go through the machine to be sure everything is greased etc. A couple buddies of mine recommended doing a compression test prior to buying, should I plan to do this? What should the numbers look like in each cyl?

Not many places to grease on these. Physically removing the rubber seals that cover the jackshaft and driveshaft bearings, adding a good low temp grease, replacing the seals are the two big items. You can do the same to any of the track idler bearings, if they don't spin smooth, you might want to replace those bearings... I try to keep a handful around to change out.

The fade issue that had plagued a very low percentage of machines has had some discussions on here, too. Most machines have found the TPS setting was off. It takes a very detailed procedure to set them correctly, many dealers don't know how, search on here for those specifics.

Compression should be around 125 with a accurate gauge. Hold throttle wide open, remove all plugs, 5 strong pulls on recoil.

Depending on how the engine was broken in, it may be a bit lower.

The 2015 was about 3% richer than later years, so it won't be as fast as a 2016 and up.

If you buy it, I have a brand new Dyno Jet PC-V tuning box with a Dyno Tech custom tune for sale that fixes this. No ECU changes required. $250 shipped in USA.

Well, I finally made a move on a sled after a ton of watching, waiting, pondering, etc.


I landed on a 2015 Switchback Pro-S 60th Anniversary with about 1,700 miles on it. Funny story, I actually ended up finding it at a dealer about 250 miles away in Wisconsin. After talking to the dealership, it sounds like it was traded in by a personal friend, and the were trying to get rid of it right away. From the pictures and promise of the sales guy, there is not a scratch on it. I realized how good of a deal it was so I went ahead and put a down payment on it to lock it down. I'll be picking it up in the next week or two when I can make the 7 hour round trip drive to get it. They had it listed at $6,299 and with tax it landed around $6,500.


I was a bit unsure buying it sight unseen, but getting it from a reputable dealer made me feel much better.
Here are a few photos of the machine:

That's a pretty good deal considering what people are asking for used sleds this year - pretty crazy if you ask me. Easily $1500-2000 more than last years used prices.

That's exactly why I jumped on this one when it popped up. After tracking prices for months I couldn't believe how many people were firm on insanely high prices.

All the snow in February and March really helped the used sled market return back to normal. Congrats, I hope you put thousands of trouble free miles on it.

I had my eye on that one too! One of my top 3 color combos from Polaris! You shouldn’t have to pay sales tax, unless you register it in Wisconsin? I bought one of my Indy’s from a dealer in Wisconsin last fall, and didn’t have to pay tax. Good luck with your sled, it’s a beauty!!
