Just wondering what people think of these sleds??

Also what gearing does it have in it?[/b]
Nice and light, and lots of fun. Personally though, I'd rather have the M-570 and use it for playing off trail. That's where it shines.

Make sure it has the updated pistons, as the original pistions are ticking time bombs.

If you've ever ridden anything with horsepower you'll quickly grow very tired of the 570, but for low speed playing around, it's a hoot.

They were used all over Michigan as rentals,,,, easy way to make pretty good money. I thought the motors were pretty much bullet proof,,, I was unaware of a recall on pistons, so you may want to look into them. I have the 03 370, so I have the same sled (except for the motor) and it has given me NO problems at all.

watch some are piston poppers

I know of a 03 Z570 and 04 Panther 570 take a piston out around here

If you want a fan get a 440fan or just go liquid

There wasn't a recall. But for 05 they came out with different pistons, and any earlier sleds that had piston problems recieved the updated pistons.
The problem thay had was teh same one that plagued many Arctic Cat pistons through-out the late 90's. Locator pin becomes recessed, ring turns, hooks exhaust port, destroys piston and cylinder.

Doesn't the guy from Florida (72h2kaw) have one of these? Hopefully he'll chime in. I know they go pretty well on the beach! :)

How much did you pay for yours? I notice ASM in Sturgeon Falls has brand new 07's for $4999. That's a good deal. Makes me wish I needed a new short-track leaf-blower.

See, there are up-sides to a strong dollar and terrible winters.
