after having my indy 500 give nothing but trouble for the past 5 seasons (topends, bottom ends and new motors), i decided to go big and buy a nice, newer sled, ended up with an 02 edge 800, ive been riding it for the past week on my lake, every day, was really starting to enjoy it, riding with a lot of buddys yesterday and geuss what happened? locked it up, wasnt even abusing it either, im slightly discouraged to say the least, worst part is i still owe a grand on it, so its going to sit until i pay it off, WTF!!!!! its like every time i try to own a sled all hell breaks loose.

the 800 XCs were bearing eaters. They make an upgrade kit for it, so maybe look into that since you are rebuilding anyway.

Maybe the oil that you put in your sleds or gas, or the sled gods hate you.

And you always said to sell the rxl and get a newer one, but who was it that pulled you home? That's right, the ol'rxl[:)]

But on another note, if you need help or just want to rip the rxl a little bit, just let me know. Lets get the 800 up and running again!!!!!
