OK......so I'm a 1st time 2 stroker. I'm currently on a 17 Polaris SB 800 Pro S with roughly 5200 miles. Machine is running great........no issues and I really mean no issues !! It has always had it's required maintenance and really has not been abused. It's been running a little warm this winter but I attribute that to low snow and hard pack conditions. In anything deep or scratchers deployed she runs at 124 - 126 all day. What has me nervous is everybody talking about it's only a matter of time before she blows...it's a ticking time bomb......it's a 2 stroke ya know. Yet there is no indication that something bad is going to happen. My problem is that my confidence is shattered. Every time I ride it now I think it's going to be the last......it'll blow up and I'll be walking home. 120 PSI on both sides starting this season and she still pulls hard. Like I said....no issues. However the naysayers are under my skin. Is it time for a trade ?? I really do love this machine. Should I go back to a Yami 4 stroke and not have to worry about a motor blowing after 5000 miles ?? Love to hear the pros and cons of rebuilding vs trading in at this mileage. I've owned 2 4 strokes before the Poo and I still have one at over 7000 trouble free miles. Prior to the Poo I was on a 14 SR Viper XTX. Thinking about a new Sidewinder for next year. No bashing......just honest, knowledgeable comments please !!
