I have a question. Everyone knows that skidoo is yellow, and cat is green. Is it correct that yamaha is blue? And is polaris then red? It seems that doo and cat are more associated with one color than the other two.
I agree. I like how the OEM's are mixing it up with the colors. Now AC has a red sled as well. Also, I like AC green, but when I ordered my new sled, the all green was too much, I ordered a black ZR and guess what, there's no green at all. So I guess it's all or nothing. I almost ordered a red F7 and planned on yellow accesories. I thought that would look great after seeing a freinds red XCSP with yellow graphics. That's a great looking sled. Black always looks fast though. I like the new Mach colors. The flames are just enough. Not too much or it would be overboard on the flames. Or I like the black doos with yellow accresories. Blue is o.k., but it's not too flashy.
All the colors look good, but I have to have yellow on my sled. I feel the best looking graphics and color combo on any sled I've ever seen is Polaris Edge X Blue and yellow. Those are really sharp looking sleds. That yellow really sets it off. I'll keep my MXZ though. The yellow is hard to keep clean, but looks nice if you doo.

Yes, that's about right.
IMHO the red Firecat and/or the all-red 2001 MXZ's with the red bellypans are the best looking sleds out there. That photo in all of the magazines this year showing the red Firecat getting a little sideways on a downhill jump is just beautiful.
Well I personally like the 2002 two-tone black/yellow paint scheme on my mxz. For some reason I don't like the 2003 mxz two-tone as much, the ski-doo lettering across the hood looks akward. However I do like the orange and black summits.
I too like the fact that the manufacturers are mixing it up a little. I'm thinking of painting blue and black flames on the front of my YELL-ow MXZ for some contrast. I found the best stuff to clean the belly pan on my sled is a mild tire cleaner and a brush, Simple Green mixed 50-50 works well also
