Well I took my 96 XLT out this weekend after recently purchasing it. Got a whole 9 miles and the crank bearings blew out. It looked like the 4th of July. Nothing worse than having to be towed home by your buddies Ski-doo. Got up the next morning and went looking for a newer sled. Not much to choose from at this time of the year. Ended up getting a 2000 600EFI ZL with reverse with 2000 miles. You could tell it was a real babied sled. Payed more than I wanted to but I wanted to ride. I love this sled! Rides like a dream and has plenty of zip! Got it up to 85MPH in the soft field. All in alll the weekend turned out to be ok! Love that EFI. Two pulls every time!
