Somebody is trying to tell me the sled weighs like 490lbs. I tried to tell him its closer to 600. He doesn't believe me. I own the sled and can barely lift it 6" then my back hurts so bad I have to drop it. My Viper is about 490 I can lift that a good 1 1/2 feet.

maybe ur just old... lol jk <snicker> um.. things can be differents... but way same..! and feel heavier... for instance... when you have a board 20 feet long and the rock is on the far end... you can easily lift the opposite end because of leverage... but when u try to lift end wit rock on it. OWWWW. Well maybe one sled has a heavier suspension but lighter engine so u lift the most of it.. and your yama might have a light rear end but a heavier engine.... i dunno the specs but this is a option! and maybe a solution

Duct tape much like the force... it has a light side, a dark side.... and it holds the world together!

after checking on polaris-mans site, i have noticed there isnt a dry weight spec given, but if you goto nadaguides.com, it lists dry weight and they list 540 lbs for the dry weight of your sled, and i didnt realize it came stock with triple pipes. otherwize p-mans site give good info, i always check there first!

I used to own a '96 XCR 600 and the front end is pretty heavy. I put on SLP UtraLite skis to save 12 lbs. and let me tell you that made a huge difference over steel skis.

I looking at a 96 600 xcr sp, I also have a 1997 680 ultra spx se, my friend says the 600 is known to have the crankshaft bearing on the pto side of motor go bad, because there's no oil passage on that bearing is this true, the sled I am looking has 2,300 miles and the people have never had a problem.
