I own an 01 800 xcsp. I had it totally rebuilt after an accident about a month after I had it. It runs very good. I replaced the track to 1 1/4 inch this year. I would also recommend getting dual carbide skis to get rid of the darting. If you can wait a year or two I would see what Polaris comes out with to match the Rev. Other than that i love the sled. Keeps on runnin. If you can find an 02 it will have the variable exhaust with a few more ponies. The 01 is really tough to pull over.
I've had it punched out to 875 and added pipes and V Force reeds. Got rid of the mid range flat but now initial throttle up to 5000 is slow. The dealer was fiddling with it till we ran out of snow last week. He says it is running strong but I won't have a chance until next season now to try. The 01 doesn't have piston compression relief holes that's why they pull hard. I like the way this sled handles but I have a 99 Edge proto type rear suspension in it not the stock one.
The 02 has much better low and mid range response.
I have the Edge suspension in it and I like the handling of the 01 better.
I have a friend with an 01 and his responds very well and is quite fast.
I also have a friend that buys a new sled every year in northern Wisc right near the western edge of the U.P. He has a red 02 Xpackage with 600 graphics for sale with the 800 RMK engine. Two weeks ago it was only showing 368 miles on the odometer. He is asking $6,000.00 U.S. for it.
