I heard that a Polaris Semi was at a secret location last weekend with all the 08 models and there was nothing bigger than a 700 :blush: I don't know I was not there but it is what I read :huh:

I heard 600 in race chassis. I'm hoping for 800 in race chassis with out softening the shocks or chassis for consummers.

800 seems to be a sure bet ( I have heard evidence of new "800" head castings a couple of places now), but we will all know by March 12th or 13th.

Timespent tell your contacts at Polaris to build 6 and 700s that get more than 10 mpg and while they are at it, give them bigger gas tanks too...

Here here! I want a 150 mile range, and and least 300 miles range for the oil resevoir.

No it doesn't. If you've got more then 90 miles on a tank you're sucking fumes.

Yes they did, but the gas milage SUCKS.

Hell, my '07 600 CFI is only getting 11-12 MPG.

And hopefully they wont F-up the oiling system like they did on the 600 CFI anymore.

On a better not Poo has by far the best chassis on the market. Plenty of people on revs and even one on the new cats has rode my sled and wished they wouldnt have spent the money on thier doos and cats.

I'm hoping for a 550 fan in the IQ. I'm thinking about an '07 600 HO IQ, but 40+ lbs lighter(Rev 550 fan) would be better on the woods trails I like. My dealer says that his rep has ridden the '08 sleds and it isn't coming. He does want to sell me an '07 really bad though! :rolleyes:

10.8 to 11.7??? I'm assuming you're talking gallons, and US gallons at that? BFD, I ran out of gas today at 83.4 miles, and it took 43 liters to fill it up. However many gallons it might take, that's not near enough miles on a tank. If they're going to fix something, fix that.

As far as the chassis goes, I LOVE MY SLED!! I can't say it enough. It blows my mind what a nice sled this is.
Seeing as Ski-Doo has a 435lb Rev for next year though, Polaris is going to have to step up and get the weight down.

As for suggestions (though I'm sure it's a little late) give me a Dragon Switchback; Same suspension as my Dragon, but with the heat exchangers from the RMK. That's my dream sled. Well, add a tool kit, a gas can rack and a removable seat with storage.


I think a 550 fan in an IQ is a given.

if your only getting 83 miles on a tank of gas you wonder how they pass them in the emissions when you can get 130 miles on a stock carb 600???

I have a stock carb'd 600 HO and I can't get anything close to 100 miles a tank. Rode a power line in about a foot of new snow the other weekend and got 72 miles to a full (and i mean full to the top of the rim) tank of gas. Best I have gotten was a long cruise at about 50 mph and 6400 rpm and I got 94 miles on that tank. Oh and my mains are even jetted two sizes lean from stock...
