First year XRS was 07, he may have the XPS decals (blue) it if it's pre 2007.
What till you ride it and find the power to be boring. Ski doo never has any recalls but... Anyways start coming up with a power adder plan so your sled is not boring cause the 1200 is boring.
well first ride out put on 75 miles I got 12.5 mpg with my 1200 my dad got 15.5 with his etec 600 second ride out I got 15 with the 1200 my dad again got 15.5 his etec is a 11' with 3500 miles on it my 1200 is a 12' with 375 miles on it should only get better.What's the gas mileage on the 1200 doo compared to the 600 etec?
You have obviously never ridden one. I am sure you Yammy is more exciting, considering it doesn't steer and weighs a ton. That must be exciting in the turns.What till you ride it and find the power to be boring. Ski doo never has any recalls but...

I picked up my 2012 X pkg 1200 two weeks ago and I can't think of anything to do with it. The fit and finish is perfect. There are no rivet nails in the airbox, the reverse works perfect, the hood and side panels fit perfect, there are no exposed staples, no holes in the dash that need covering, no hoses not connected. My sled came from the factory with a factory installed iceripper that includes tunnel protectors so I don't have to wait for backordered protectors. I don't have to take my sled back to the dealer because there aren't any recalls. :wtf: I knew I should have bought a Cat! Then I could be spending my extra time working on my brand new sled fixing all the mistakes from the factory and crying like a bunch of babbies on the Cat forums.:crysmilie:Oh well I guess I'll just have to wait for the snow to fly and the trails to open. For now all I can doo is look at my perfect sled sitting in tha garage while others are working on theirs so they are ready for when the snow comes.:tv:
not sure you could blow them away...I am thinking of getting a GT 600 ace for my other half as well.Have heard they get great mileage and are a good sled. That jd guy does seem to go on about cats a lot. I guarantee I could blow any of those 1200 4 strokes away with my 800 crossfire. Plus I can go play in the powder all day long also.
no surprise here. I rode one and seems like a nice sled but squeezed the flipper and nothing happened...maybe with a turbo or supercharger they'll have a winner but until then I just can't see riding one on a regular basis.on paper 130hp.
on the snow....you will be surprised
guess i have a good one cause when the flipper is hit, its gone and has no problem whole shooting a lot of higher hp sleds and beating some.no surprise here.

wasn't bashing your sled I actually really liked the ride I guess I'm just expecting everything to have the arm pulling torque I get from my turbo. hopefully they boost them up so there will be more choices for the turbo market right now there isnt much choices.guess i have a good one cause when the flipper is hit, its gone and has no problem whole shooting a lot of higher hp sleds and beating some.
Join the club........:bc:Actually the 1200 is quite impressive for a 130 hp sled. My wife's bone stock GSX 1200 consistently beats my clutched CF 700 by 3-4 sleds in appx 700 ft. She was beating our friend's '10 Z1 turbo (stock) by 6-7 sleds in this same distance, until I helped him with his set-up. Now he's a couple sleds ahead. 2012 Apex XTX was also only a couple sleds ahead in this distance. The APEX seems to hook really hard out of the hole, and just stays a couple sleds in front the whole way, but her little 1200 hangs right there. None of these sleds are studded, btw, and the racing was done on frozen ground with about 1" snow cover. Must be she got a good one too. Can't wait to throw a header, studs, and RB3 on it. Game over in a short race in under 1000 ft. The Doo will easily out handle any of these sleds on the trail too. I've ridden them back to back, and would take the Doo any day, even if it is slightly slower in a straight line. I was a die hard Cat guy, until I got a taste of Doo's 1200. Wish Doo would offer a factory turbo version, or a 150-160hp 1200HO that would run on 87 octane.
