So i just bought a 1991 Polaris Indy 400, but it has a 440 in it. i'm new to this and with a little research i havent found any polaris 1991 with a 440 in it. any help would be greatly appreciated. Are these indys great racing sleds or something cause i can't find any for sale and alot of people on here seem to have them?
Also it has aftermarket fox shox and the front is a little low in the snow and i was wondering if anyone knew how to raise them. i cant simply twist them i already tried that, but i know they have about 3/4 of an inch to go till they are maxed out thanks!

You sure it isn't a 92? What is the production date on the tunnel? Did you try taking the weight off the skis to adjust the front suspension?

If you have a 91 XC "400" I would be a happy camper, as they are very rare. They came from the factory with a 440 and 400 decals.

^^ i agree, if the production date on the tunnel is late 91(october november) chances are its a 92.

Well i just checked and the manufactured date is kind of hard to read but i think it is 01 1990. And the hood is custom paint. it says Indy 400 XC plus the dudes name that raced it, and Tri-City small engine racing. how rare are these?
And yes i did lift up the front to try and adjust the shox. thanks for the feed back guys
lemme try and get some pics on here for ya once my cameras battery is charged

if you ever sell make sure you let the person know its the XC 400 because to certain people they are worth more than the adverage indy.
unless its a clone
