    Default Agonizing over new sled

    Looked at a 06 RMK 151 / FST conversion last night. Pretty sweet. Lots of work in it, like new, 900 miles, but no warranty, you can't buy them new that way, I'd be in the Polaris camp..

    There's a camp!!
    When it snows, you have two choices: shovel or make snow angels.

    Kindness is like snow - it beautifies everything it covers.

    if it's a 900 stay away from it unless you like vibration, clutch problems, and a heavy sled

    Heavy it is, turbo 4 stroke, but with boost they lighten up! It hasn't had some of the typical problems yet, low miles but went out of warranty last month. I didn't do it yet..Another 1500 could get a brand new one with warranty. The Z1 turbo prices are dropping now as well..The guys in white coats will be chasing me!

    Well, the white coats are going to come after me as well!! A trip to get a $25 riser may cost me thousands in the long run if I like that 600 I plan to try out this weekend

    4 stroke turbo with the RMK from the gas tank back, 155 or 151 track, RMK gears, SLP can, New Simmons, but it is low miles and almost all of these 06 models had bugs that needed worked out the first 1500 or so miles under warranty. I can get a stock brand new 07 or 08 in the same price range with warranty. Also the Z1 turbo prices are dropping..same weight range but bigger engine,Maybe I should just get a computer-fuel injection system for my union bay motor and turbo it..my new sled would be hand made!! Just have me committed and one or two shots of really good drugs will clear this nonsense from my head!
