2015 arctic cat zr 4000 xlt or Ski Doo mxz 600 carb

I have limited budget, and I am upgrading from my 1999 ski doo formula 500 to my first new sled. Both these sleds can be bought for about the same money at some year end sales. Any suggestions about the choice would be appreciated. I am a trail rider, and am used to about 85 hp. My concerns is carb issues for the ski doo, and only a 500 for the arctic cat. I do like the efi. Also concerned about the future of the suzuki engine. Thanks

For those two sleds, it would seem to me that the 4000 would not be much of a step up from what you are riding now. The MXZ will have a lot more power if the seating position fits you. Carbs do require a bit more maintenance, but when the EFI breaks, it's spendy to fix.

I'd go for more power, you can't have too much of that!
