I'm looking at the above two sleds. Both have less then 2000 miles on them and I'm wondering which one would be better for reliability, durability etc. Either have any engine problems?

Thanks,

I would stay with the xc 700 better sled all around. Runs cooler also.

Supposedly the 800 has crank bearing problems, but the guys I ride with have had no troubles. I would take the 700.

Hey Glen go with the 700 never had problems with mine and any step up from the 440 will be greatly noticed. And i know your not about top speed since the 700 would be plenty for you.


cheers

the power output is almost the same. other than that they are identical sleds. 800s and 700s share the same crank and bearing design and they are both candidates to have issues but it's rare. i have an 01 800 and i like it a lot. basically i think it would come down to which one you can get cheaper. also if you want to mod it at all it's easier to find used pipes for the 800.
