What's the new 2003 Pro X weight?

I just read an article in the new American Snowmobiler Dec. issue and they said Cat listed a new official dry weight for the 2003 F7 EFI Firecat @ 470.5 pounds (no fuel, no oil).
I'd like to know as a comparison how well the Pro X stands against this.

Look nice...Now I really can't wait until I'm a bit older and can afford my own sled. That'd be so sweet...and I wouldn't always have to let my dad make the plans. I want his 800 X though so bad...I think that's what I will buy from him in a few years. That thing is awesome. Yer a lucky one.

AND...I thought that Cat said F7's dry were 435 lbs. or something like that? But that's published in a mag, and it does sound more right...by a lot. 435 I think could of been a complete lie if you saw 470 somewhere. HMMM...

I may be young, but I ain't dumb!!! (I might seem like it, but I'm not. Anyways I don't think so.)

The dry weight on a paper I've got here is listed at approx 480 lbs. With all fluids but gas. I think that's not too bad, From lifting the front and back it is a lot lighter than my XCR was.

The F7's ORIGINAL dry weight was 435 but due to some reliabilty issues they had to add a few pounds. Some upgrades were the rear heat exchanger, a new seat to accomidate the new heat exchanger(different material on the bottom of the seat). Also they moved the brakes off of the drive shaft.

By saying your "old indy" do you mean your 2002 Pro X fan? A year old isn't that old...

It was not cheap. I paid $9620.00 Plus tax (Canadian) Comes out to just over 11 thousand dollars.

That hurts.... It's 110% worth it though.

1 Canadian Dollar (CAD) = 0.63886 US Dollar (USD)

That means $9620 would equal $6145 US.

Polaris MSRP suggests $7699 US, so does that mean P-man got a GREAT deal or did i miss something?

In any case, it must feel great to have that sled sitting in the shed!
