Polaris sells a lot of sleds, they were #1 in sales through the 1990's, and by selling a lot means there are alot out there to be resold. Lots of people have two or three sleds and haven't got use for an older one so they sell it.

Also depends on if there are several dealers near by and what all brands are sold.

In my area more Arctic Cat's sell then anything. Why? Because more people ride Cat's then anything else and most are updating to newer sleds.

They just keep upgrading their cats because cats fall apart... If they don't upgrade, they'll eventually be riding bare chassis. [thumb]

craig your just mad cause we all are riding polaris's this year and your gonna be the only yamaha guy. lol its what you make of it and yes polaris sold more sleds in the 90's than anyone. i know a guy who has a cat and he has done so much work to it just to ride with us, so i know how cats can be riding on a chassis in no time like mentioned above.

look what you did now craig now your gonna start a SLED WAR

did not intend to .by the way i dont care that im the only one rideing a yamaha cuz i know how reliable mine is.it has nevere did me wrong in the 5yrs that iv had it. maybe thats why all these polaris's are for sell cuz the yamahas are so reliable and no one wants to get rid of them. lol i just need to sell or find a decent trade so i can get another sled so we can both go and take the boys with us!she had a polaris before and she did not like it she rode my yamaha and liked it better the her polaris and she likes how reliable they are and how easy if is for her to start even for being an older sled. we barely use the boat we would deff.get more use out of another sled!yhats y i bought my yamaha cuz my friends have them as old as a 79 and they all are still being rode to this day all of them are very reliable very min.problems besides just the normal wear and tear that you need to nkeep up with.im very happy with mine to eash is own just wondering why there are very few out ther for sale either there is none or there just not selling them due to the same reasons i dont want to get rid of mine or change brands .lol micahman will see whos the first one rideing this yr. unless u savatage me while im sleeping lol putting a camra out back lol!!!

Mark that's a low blow! Just remember you're sticking polaris tunnel protectors (which coincidently came off a bare polaris chassis) on your cat!

And I also do believe Polaris dominated the market in the early to mid/late 90's. You see all kinds of Indy's out there. which means there are lots still roaming around waiting to be sold

I'll take this as a compliment. People don't take pot shots at anything they don't feel threatened by.

I'm somebody, I have Polaris's, they are not for sale.

Why would you state EVERYBODY

Why would you not say there seem to be many Polaris sleds for sale.

Your topic is just begging for argument.

I had one of the vmax 600 sleds and it was a pile of %$&@. The worst front supension ever thought up, ugly, and slow. A friend of mine was geeked to buy one new. He had a old EXT530 cat that he sold me for 200..I fixed it up over the winter and at a party that March he was bragging up the Vmax. He was itching to race everyone, Well I lined his old 200 dollar sled with his new 600 Vmax and whooped him 3 out of 3.

wow.....getting intresting in here..... well craig now your running a track that says polaris on it its not 100% yamaha anymore. there are so many polaris's where we are cause more people bought them than other sleds. i caould drive down the road and i can spot maybe 5 polaris's 2 cats and 1 skidoo rite now. so i think its mainly what people prefer and i like polaris cause they are a dime a dozen and easy to get parts for. never liked cats cause i saw to many ppl workin on them and i had a few skidoo's and i liked them for the most part i had a 81 yami and it was a lumber wagon. i got a polaris and loved it. so i like polaris plus they are easy to work on.
