Spot on!!!!!!That's not a lot of miles for any Polaris 700 although it is plenty of miles if it hasn't been maintained well.
Valve cleaning/quality oil/clutch maintenance/storage method/fogging/greasing/etc are what makes the difference.
They are a great sled. Awesome in deep snow, great handling trail sled and decent top speed but slightly slower than a 121 of the same size.
That's an average price for that sled if it's in good condition considering the miles.
If it had any significant parts to replace then the price should be lower....
Track/clutches/skis/cab/seat or anything worth a couple hundred bucks or more.
My 03 SKS700 has 1800 miles, reverse and is in mint condition.
$5000 will buy it, it's for sale.[/b]
A stock set up 03 SKS will most likely be slower then a well set up 1999 600 MXZ???it has always been mantained and not driven hard. its my friends dads and he only drives it maybe 2 times a month becuase he is always trucking. do u think it would be able to keep up or beat a 1999 mxz 600?[/b]
Remove the ATACC and jet 430 main on clutch side & 420 main on mag side. Correct one problem at a time.You guys sound very knowledgeable, maybe you can give me a hand figuring out why my sled is running crappy. By the way I just dropped it off at the shop but would like to hear your opinions to what could wrong. I'm not very familiar with clutching/jetting, so any tech talk will just confuse me. Here's the issues:
1. If I leave it outside and temps are anywhere from -10 to 0, it won't idle after starting (ATACC installed) Once I do get it doing, it runs like its getting to much gas. In fact I have to stop and dry the plugs, then it will clear up and run fine.
2. It doesn't backshift like I think it should, it doesn't rip your arms off like I want it to. It hits just above 8200 RPMs but only tops out at about 95 mph and takes some distance to get there. As far as I know it hasn't been geared down or anything although It had been upgraded to the 2004 Team Secondary. The only other aftermarket part on the engine, as far as the previous owner stated, was the Tempaflow, which I had replaced with a ATACC (I ride both trail and mountains).
3. When riding in deep snow it runs fine carving left, but when I put it on it's rightside it bogs and won't accelerate. In fact I got stuck almost everytime I went right; felt like I was in Nascar. I thought it was snow in the carbs or filters but after trying it several times in both directions, it only acted like this when leaning hard to the right.
Well that's about it but it's embarrasing when you're leading the ride and can't get your sled to run right, especially in front of CATS. Any help/wisdom would be appreciated. Thanks[/b]
Pockets, I just geared my 03 700 SKS to this. I have not run it yet, but here is my question. The stock 74p chain would not fit. So I used a 76p chain meant for a 2006 600 SB. The chaincase is a mechanical reverse case (pain). The 76p chain has a huge dog leg, about a quarter of an inch from the top small reverse gear. It does not touch, but I was concerned about the dog leg. Since there is nothing in the middle, I assumed it was the best I could get. Correct or not? Thanks in advance.You could also gear down a bit to 23/40.[/b]
i am looking at buying a 2003 sks 700 with 4300mi on it for 4700 Canadian. I was wondering if 4300mi is lots for one of those sledsand what should i look at when i am going to buy it. what is the top speed and how good are they in deep snow.[/b]
