Yeah, that weight isn't bad at all for a 4-stroke sled. I would like to drive on to see if a person can really tell a differernce or not. I mean, most people complain about weight, but they would know the difference if they rode a heavy sled and changed over to a lighter one.
My personal concern about the weight of a sled is not how it affects the performance of the machine, but how damn hard will it be to get out if it gets stuck! Reverse will save you in some instances, but not many. And if it doesn't have reverse, then hauling it off the trailer makes machine weight an issue as well.
