I said 5000 but its just a guess though because I had it from the point when I was 4 to 13 and the only thing I ever had to do was put on gasline and plug....It was a 1980 Ski-doo Citation 3500 with the 277cc single. Ran like a top and still does for my little cousin who I gave to last christmas.

My best sled so far was my 04 REV 600 sdi. 9600 kms on it and never had a wrench on the motor. I'd get over 5000 km to a belt!! . Add to that the 20mpg for amazing fuel economy and it makes for an amazing sled.
Now my 02 MXZ 700 was amazing too. It had 8800 kms on it and other than cleaning the clutches, it was trouble free too .

My sled.

Never had one issue with anything. Coming on 16 000 kms shortly and the closest thing to seeing the internals of the engine was when I put in my reeds and changed sparkplugs. Everything else has been equally reliable, havent had to replace anythng but bushings and bearings and that was my choice, could have left them as they werent very bad.

Mine was a 96 Grand Touring 670, sold it at 10k and it was still just purring. Weight got to be an issue, otherwise I'd still have it!

97 FomulaZ 583. After 12,000 miles I thought I should ring it. When I did, the original hone marks were still visible. Traded it in with over 15,000 miles on it ...

If it's big and ugly, lemme at it!!

I wander what this poll will say several years from now when some of the new Yammi 4 strokes reach a gazillion miles. Just hope you can find one with a suspension and everything else that will last as long as the engine.

I had a 90 prowler with 13,000 mile on it,,,, I did change the motor to a 580 at 11,000 mile but had no problems with the 440 up to them.
It was sold to a fellow in Michigan for his son,,,, not sure what ever happened to it.

1998 skidoo formula 500, 9500km when I sold it, ran like it did from day one. Still had 138 lbs compression each side when I sold it. Clean the carbs and rave valves twice per season and run synthetic, I think it's impossible to wear them out.

2002 Skidoo Legend 700 with 11,500 KL and I've replaced the track so far.
I chose to replace the drive bearings at that time because I had it all apart but they weren't showing any signs of wear.

The dealer replaced the rear shock under waranty with an MXZ one.

I am refreshing the motor this summer though just because our season is so short and I'd hate to take time out to rebuild it because something let go.

I sold my 93 Formula Plus 580 EFI with 4100 miles on it and I thought that was a lot. Then I see guys on here who ride that much in a year or so. Man that is a lot of riding. I buy a sled every 5-8 years and think its expensive. I cant imagine having to buy one every couple years or so.
