Just wondering if any of you have any opinions on or experience with the 550 SuperSport or the 550 Classic. I have to admit, I didn't do a lot of research on it before I bought it. But I've heard the 550 is bulletproof.
I thought that the Classic was a liquid 500(488 Fuji). A good friend has a 2000 500 Classic good riding good running sled.
Not sure if it is the clutch settup or the nature of the sled but it is'nt very responsive. Seems to have good top end for a 500 but sluggish through the trails. I don't know much about the 550 Super Sport. Either way you'll have a blast this winter
The 02 550 has a new digital timing system that should make it a better engine than the previous years.
The secret with fan engines is to give them plenty of air. Make sure the intake and oulet vents arn't restricted in any way and that you have the correct heat range plug. The head and crankcase temps tend to run higher on a fan cooled than a liquid cooled engine so the correct plug is more critical than on a liquid cooled machine. Follow the jetting recomandation for cold temps and you should be fine.
By the way it will beat a 570 AC.
yes pics again... what year is it? new? that would be sweet... driving by the polaris shop yesterday new shipment of sleds some snow checks i think and 12 racers... 5.7 gallon alcohol tanks and some sweeeeeeeet mods..!
Duct tape much like the force... it has a light side, a dark side.... and it holds the world together!
just got a 2001 700 classic. awesome machine. has electronic adjustable shock for changing ride. extremely fast off the line even without picks. the 600 is nice also. love it so far. going to MI soon to ride.
