My wife runs a 97 Touring SLE 500 F/C (Teal/Green in color). The sled has been almost perfect for us. One exception was this fall the brake fluid reservoir had some small sludge in it that blocked the return tube that the fluid uses to get back when you release the brakes. Everytime we used the brakes they would not release. Cleaned out the tube and we were off and running again.

I wish all sleds were as easy to work on as her SLE. I hate the newer sleds - too tough to work on them with the electrical / computers and all.
