Here's a pic

Well no more ridding my buddies ZL, I finally pulled the trigger on a sled. :boogieboy:

Bought a used 01 xc 500 sp with 2601 miles. Picked it up from townline motorsports in Mt Morris. Asking price was $2249 and I negotiated a price of $1750, I'm pretty excited to get out there and rip it up :thumbsup:

Being new to this I have many questions and posted them here:
http://www.hardcoresledder.com/forums/inde...p;#entry3416929

Can you guys check out that thread and give me some input? I'd really apprecate it.

Oh and one more question to add to that list. How is K&W cycle for service? It's the closest dealer to my house. I stopped in there yesterday to pick up a set of rollers and really got a bad impression.

Guy at the service counter was nice and friendly. Grabbed me a set of sled rollers, said they're $59 bucks rung them up. He then said take these to the front counter, they'll have your receipt and you can pay up there. So, I go to the front counter and nobodys there, but there are 4 sales guys standing in the cubicles on the left side of the store. I stood at the counter while they looked at me for about three minutes. Finally some guy said you need help? I said yes and they continued to chit chat about some movie for another minute. Finally the guy comes over and says can I help you? I said Yeah I need to pay for this, He punched some buttons and told me $68.90. :eek:oh4: I said what kind of tax you charging? He said what do you mean? I said these rollers are $59.99 plus sales tax he said no they're $64.99 plus sales tax. We went back to service where the guy back there opened the catalog and told the guy from up front $59.99. He said okay we'll fix it.

I was hoping to run in and run out. Instead I was F&n around for 35 minutes :wall:

Geez I just hijacked my own post :lol:

K & W is great. I get ALL my parts and accessories there. I live 4 hours away and have my friends bring the stuff up. They really know how to take care of people.

ASK 4 VINCE!!!!

Trevor - yep dealt with Todd. Took some back and forth negotiating but in the end I think we were both happy. Thanks for the recommendation. Only thing I didn't like was they knew I was coming to look at it and the sled was REAL dirty. Looked nothing like the super clean mint sled in thier ad. In the end I think that actually worked in my favor.

Brook their internet jocky knew nothing about the sled, couldn't answer any of my questions, and kept repeating "it has a new track... it has a new track... it has a new track" felt like I was talking to a pet rock in the land of echoes.

Oh and Doo Doo is just not my thing :frech11:

That must be why you like them, you don't have to deal with them directly :yelrotflmao:

I took in my sled for warranty work it and it was not the best experience dealing with them. When I got my sled back it was screwed up and I had to take to another dealer to fix their problems. I would never go back there to buy anything or for service. Just my opinion.

Great sled for the money. Very dependable model. See the Polaris forum archives or search it for all your answers.

K&W Parts dept is good but the rest of the place sucks. Just had mine in for the first time for updates and warranty work. I ended up redoing some work myself and taking it to C&C in Brighton to complete the updates that K&W couldn't do (bunch of hacks). I wasn't happy with my K&W experience.....never again.

C&C is great !
