I went and picked up my newer sled tonight. 2008 ski doo tnt 500ss only has 890 miles is it and is freaking clean. I'm already in love with the xp chassis, it's hundreds of times better than my old gen 2

The rev xp is about ten million time more trail friendlier than an iqr. The first time you ride down the trail on an iqr you will understand. The iqr is a rough riding tippy sled. It is hands down the most fun sled in the ditches though.

yes, the 500ss is Ski-Doo old(er) 600 motor (1999-2002 Mxz motor originally).

this ma sound like a stupid question, but could some one who owns an xp tell me how to get the clutch guard back on all the way. i took it off to look at the belt and couldn't get it back on.

Awesome sled I picked up the same sled last fall absolutely love it. I had a 04 600HO SDI Adrenaline for 3 seasons and put a little over 5000 miles on it, and let me tell you the TNT is a lot quicker then my old sled. It soaks up the bumps well all though it is no lake runner its quick through the corners. To put the clutch cover back on the part that goes down by the primary clutch goes in first and the rear part of the cover you will have to bend alittle to get it into its locking area.

wow, i was just looking at my grandpas 1973 TNT 340 (silver bullet) i still find it amazing how far sleds have come when you look at a '73 TNT, then look at a new one.

thanks the clutch cover back on, I Thought it went on further. I don't ride lakes much so it won't be a problem. I'm still in awe about the weight of it though. i can pick up the front of the tnt as easy as i could pick up the back of the old xc sp.

o.k another stupid question how do you get the air box back in these mothers. i can't get it on far enough to get the bottom latch on. also if i start it up with out it on all the way a light flashes that says D.E.S.S should it be doing that. The first picture is what i can't get on and the second i can but I'm not sure it's right.
