Whatever it is the sled runs like a rape ape. WHOLE SHIT. My dad put almost 10,000 miles on it before the crank bearing went and tore the engine apart. Easily hit 125+ all day long (gps). The only thing that was bad with it was the short lugged track which was very stupid because it was hard to get the power down.

Yep on the HP 150ish

The only, and probable, thing that will keep that thing from going 10 000 plus miles is the water pump. They are known for impeller failure around 3 to 4000 miles. The impeller veins come off and or the bearing fails. You get catastrophic engine failure with little or no warning.....Left mine for dead last year @ 3900 miles. The pump is gear driven and expensive.....needs to be done though.

the damn pump costs nearly 1/3 of a new engine,,,$500.00 vs $1700.00 (MSRP) for each 1.5 yrs ago!!

the WP's are darn pricey for sure, even the rebuild was pricey at $200
but get them done before you need to do the motor as well

specially if they have mileage on them.
