Are there any of you that have a FAVORITE long distance running sled? I am NOT talking about the fastest, the nicest looking, or the most expensive (all though this might apply) sleds - just interested in DURABILITY - pure and simple! IT DOESNT MATTER WHAT YEAR!! PLEASE make comment after you take the poll and tell us all about this sled, if possible include approximate gas milege and whether it was fan/water cooled.
Mine was a 1999 fan cooled 440Z Cat, 16 mpg and 7100 miles before it puked!

'94 Indy 500 EFI SKS - Sold it with 7,250 miles on it. Replaced the rad cap once. Other than that, never had any problems that I didn't cause myself (immovable objects, etc...)

2002 renegade 800 with 7500kms on it. Other than one blown belt a set of sliders and carbides. It has run flawlessly.

There I fixed the options up a bit...

My best so far is my 97 mxz 670 -- 3000miles till rotary valve seal leaked (also the most miles I've ever put on a sled...there will be more, I assure you! )

for every day i spend riding my 1975 Moto Ski Nuvik it seems like i have to work on it for and hour or 2...but that should be changing as i've already replaced/cleaned most everything!

I currently have a 2000 Polaris 500 XC. There is now around 7300 miles on it, just changed the belt last week, and the original sliders are still on it. My last sled was a 1997 Polaris Classic, when I sold it to a friend it had around 8000 miles on it. He is still driving it, but he just had some clutch work done to it.
I can't compete with Sawman, he had a 1992 Indy Trail deluxe, when he sold it he had 11,000 miles on it, nothing done to it, and we saw it the next year still on the trails.

I didn't vote because there was nothing on there for 11,000 miles, you've got under 10,000 over 15,000 and under 8,000 twice!

Anyways, I've got a 94 Indy 500 EFI that I have almost 11000 miles on and I love it.

Original motor, never been touched!

03 Ski-Dooo legend 550 fan. 8000kms, replaced plugs, carbides, and sliders, think the belts a bit worn so going to put the spare on.

Hey Rocketman, Brenty is correct. Could you work your magic again and change that second 8000 to read "under 15000" for us?
THANK YOU AGAIN!!
Woodsy
Sorry I messed that poll up so bad!
