Will not keep up with the 600SDI or get near the fuel mileage. My boss has 2 of them and they are very good sleds. Good sleepers to race 500 and 600 sleds with too :frech11:

I had a 2004 600SDI and bought a 2005 500SS. For the difference in price, the 500SS is the better way to go. My 600SDI blew up at 5500 miles. The 500SS has 10,000 miles on it and I will run it this coming season. The 600 SDI got 17-19 MPG and 140 miles to a qt of oil. The 500SS gets 15-17 MPG and 150 miles per qt of oil. The 500SS will stay with most sleds. My bud has one and he will run with SD 800's and AC F-7's. A lot of that is the rider but fact remains he stays with them. This was on trails, not on a lake. I can't justify spending $1,000+ more for a 600SDI over the 500SS. But to each his own. Spend your $$$ the way you want too. You earned it.

best bang for the buck out of any sled imo. the post above said the rest. while it won't run with an sdi or get the mileage, they are a damn respectable sled that have enough power to ride with any group

I disagree with this. The SDI is only marginally faster and will only get 1-2 mpg better fuel mileage. Many times it will come down to rider weight when racing across a field as to who makes the other side first. We have two 05 500 SS's and an 04 SDI. For the $1200 difference in cost, the 500 SS is the way to go.

My 500ss usually keeps up with my Uncle's 600HO until we hit about 75. Maybe he goes 3-4 mph faster on the top.
I can still get him out of the hole.

Get the 500ss and ride teh sh** out of it. 5500 miles and only a couple changed belts and a new track.

honestly, that's it.
