Looking for a sled for my 11 year old daughter

I heard the wax on your sled is 4" deep!   When you sell it, I suppose you can classify it as lady driven :snack: 

1/2 inch..... and I’ve got a 1/4 inch of Armour all on the seat, track and skis!!!

....but don’t be a hater.

That's why I figured a 600 race sled. Probably only goes 65mph

Buddy just got his 10 year old boy a 2012?? 500 snopro.  Good fit IMO.

That's what I was going to suggest. Those 500 suzuki's are good little motors. Too bad they don't make them any more.  No power valves so they are down on power but lower maintenance.

It's a factory CC sled, it will see 90 mph and we know you ain't winning shit @65 mph in CC racing. The springs and shock valving on that sled are stiff as board, it's mixed gas, and then the question is; it setup to run pump gas or race fuel?

He is taking a shot at Zderspski but the newer Cat R XC use the CTEC 600

It's a poor choice for a child's first sled.  There is no question.

She's pretty big for her age and next year will be her first year trail riding a full size sled. Thinking something like this

What about a freestyle

Newer Yamaha phazer is a good sled.. do about 85mph, decent suspension, any you see on CL probably have had all the issues taken care of, Copper exhaust doughnuts,real skis,  oilite bushings in the a-arms, X wheel package.. The 4stroke will hold its value fairly well..

I think a 1998 Polaris XCR 440 would be a good way to go.

I'm thinking a 2017 Cat SX 600 is perfect for her and my wife to share. I'll toss the C&A junko shits in the trash and put some proper skis on it though

or you could buy a consumer sleds that going to be far nicer for them to ride with ES and reverse and a suspension for light people

That would be acceptable for a little while, but I think they'd both be itching for more performance rather quickly which is why I suggested the 20 year old 440 :)

JESUS DUDE!  A proper set of skis literally scares you silly.  Strap those to the spindles of a proper sled and you'd shit clear up your back before you could get the clutches to engage!  :lol2:
