Hi. I bought a 06 mxz 500ss trail earlier this week and I was wondering a little about them. Are these sleds pretty reliable? Is there any recalls on them? Is there anything major I should know? Also is it true that this sled actually has a 597cc motor in it and why do they call it a 500 if it actually does?
Thanks

It's a 597, same as the previous 600 Doos. The reason they called it a 500ss was insurance reasons. The sled seems to be a reliable powerplant that is popular with a lot of people and seems to be relatively problem free.

That motor has been around for years...good strong motor, proper care and should last forever.
