2011 Polaris 800 assault

Recommended Posts

An 800 Poo?  Prior to 2015?

I would be concerned with the engine.   I own two but they are 600's and have been great.

2011's had very thin cylinder skirts and were prone to cracking. Fuel map is a lot richer than 13 and up. While it may be better than the CFI 4 it was the first year CFI 2 800. My son had one,,,we got rid of it.

Last thing I want is a nightmare. But this one has low miles. I'm just not a Polaris person so I have no idea

no do not do it unless it has a new motor . the 11 800 was about the worst one they built lots of updates to the 12 then to the 13 then again to the 14 

14 is about as late as I would buy and that would have to be a mid season build not a snow check

To me, it all comes down to price vs. risk.  If price is right, get it and drop some new slugs in it for security.

Sometimes these little "quirks of fear" that circulate among sledders makes for some really good deals out there.  I stole my 13 Cat with 300 miles on it probably due to clutching/belt fears (and him being in Iowa).  Who cares?  I put all new Team clutching in it that I wanted anyway.  Still way ahead! And now  Bulletproof!  Except me somehow frying the VR and ECM during one of my tear down upgrade processes. :wall::lmao:

I forget that a lot of people don't know shit about wrenching on anything much less power sports shit.  Popping some new pistons in is nothing if you have even a small incling of mechanical ability.

Ever ride with somebody that doesn't know how to change their own belt? :lol:

Or change a fucking fuse or fucking lightbulb for that matter. Morons.

I bet the guy who can't replace a belt would never do that.:lol:
