My 2000 Skidoo MXZ500 had 15,000kms on it when I sold it last summer. The SRX I have now just turned over 8,300kms today, you never know it just might beat my old record.....

2001 ZR600EFI limited Edition with around 6000 miles, other than normal maintainance the only major issue was a new primary clutch this year, but that was my own fault. I could have fixed it (new spider, weights and bushings) but I got a great deal on a new clutch on Ebay, so I went with the new one.
