I was at the local polaris/skidoo dealer a few days ago and just for kicks looked through thier used sleds parked outside. I noticed that there was a mxz which im thinking is 02 or newer because correct me if im wrong but i think skidoo put the little divider on the headlight for the first time in 02. Anyway I was checkin it out and it was in pretty nice shape but i couldnt help but notice that there was a sticker on the hood that said 500ss and i thaught that skidoo made the first 500ss in 04. maybe im wrong? either way it was a pretty nice sled and if things keep going the way they are with my sled i might have to look into it, wether its a 500ss or not. Can anyone tell me if it really is a 500ss or did someone just put different stickers on it?
