    2021 XC 600

    I have not ridden the 650, but have ridden a 2020 Indy SP with 600 Cleanfire. The fuelie 600 feels about the same, powerwise, compared to my carb’d 600. But it runs good, and that engine has proven reliability. It’s a good engine and a good chassis, imo.
  2. I think that would light a fire under every creative mind at AC. There’s nothing quite like everyone knowing that their efforts make a difference when there’s a collective need to survive. Someone said, probably sarcastically, that Argo should buy them. But if Argo has the money, that might be the best thing that could happen. I’m sorry for being too lazy to find that comment and give credit where it’s due.
  3. Yes. I haven’t heard of anyone I know die of it for about a year, but have a steady trickle of friends and acquaintances get it since the beginning and some recent.
  4. Thanks, everyone. I’ll take another peak before the snow flies and make a decision. If able, I’ll post pictures. PERC was available from the factory in 2002 model year on at least one model. Could be added late for all I know - my model is S02ST6ESA. It’s hard to find that info, and the only place I could find it is by getting the 2002 owners manual pdf from Polaris. There may be less reliable sources.
  5. I didn’t watch the video. After reading this thread, I can’t bear it. On the other hand, nobody can see into the future, but when markets and industry face the kinds of upheaval and disruptions we’ve seen in the last 18 months, there are those who fail to rise to the challenge and those who slide neatly into an opportunity that nobody realized was there. I’m interested enough to keep watching the four brands, because Powersports, like automotive, is staged for some radical changes. Don’t be too sure you know how it will turn out.
  6. That really sucks. Great comedian. I’ve been bummed out since I first heard about it.
  7. I have a 2002 Polaris 600 Liberty with the first year PERC and ignition key switchable between 87 and 91 octane. This spring I discovered light scoring on the cylinder walls with compression 115-120 on both sides. No idea about main bearing seals. This is my spare / ice fishing sled and it needs to last me a couple more years. This winter, it’s going to run the full season, unless the engine decides otherwise. But, with these engines getting rarer, if the thing decides to take a dump, I’m looking for choices. 1 - Find a shop to reline or recondition the jugs, mail order pistons, gask
  8. I’m guessing I know who you’re talking about, on the MN side of the river? I think you were the one who suggested them to me a couple of years ago. I heard about that a few weeks ago. Not exactly happy, but the little dealerships are getting harder to keep running, especially when there’s nothing to sell. So, I understand his decision.
  9. The grand kids are staying over this weekend. No Haydays for me…. ☹️ One the bright side, I haven’t seen them for a long time and we should be able to find something fun to do.
  10. The Riot has been to Speedwerx for a couple of upgrades and my Polaris was ready for the season before the snow melted last season. No more money into that thing, it’s too old. I’d hoped to put Mohawks on the Riot before the season started, but that may be a mid-season upgrade due to being fresh out of fun money.
  11. Put Caliber ski guides on my trailer last weekend, I think that counts. Clutch kit on the Riot from Speedwerx. I wanted SLP skis this year, but the budget doesn’t look good and I can put those on mid-season.
  12. I subscribed and just got my first paper issue. Looks interesting, hopefully they will have good coverage this winter.
  13. 1976 Polaris Colt SS 340 that I rebuilt (incorrectly) myself.
  14. That sucks, I hope they don’t close the ski hill. I loved skiing there. Was in Duluth during the blizzard (on Park Point), what a mess!
  15. This story is why I’m better off not following the news. I didn’t know anything about it until now.
