The local dealer has some great deals on 2002 xcsp.  We need to get a sled for my wife and I want somthing to ride the ditches with.  I currently own a 1997 sks 700.  What I'm wondering is the performance increase of the 700 worth the price increase 5500 vs 6000, slight insurance increase, and mpg over the 600?  Will the performance of the 600 be on par accelaration wise with my sks?  Top speed is not much of an issue.  If it goes 100 thats plenty.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I had a chance to talk to a couple of guys who were riding 2002- 500 and 700 xcsp's, they said milage was about the same between the two. Assuming they were doing casual trail riding.  If you are a larger rider (200 plus) then stay with the 700. If you have a track option get the 1.25 track. Not a bad deal for a 700 $6000. You might wait a bit longer and save a few more bucks. Where are you shopping, I could check pricing in my area to save you a few bucks too!  Good luck!

Rode with some 800s (i have a 600). They would only take 7-8 gallons to fill up when it would take me 10-11. Definently go with the 700.

Thanks for the info guys.  I'm going with the 700 in black.  The wife wants the black one even though the red one is my choice.  So I'll be waiting fo the 18" Halloween snow storm here in central MN.
