Hi, I'm 16 and new to the site. I just bought my second sled last week. It is a 1996 Polaris Indy RXL. This sled has a 650 triple with the M-10 suspension in the rear. This sled looks great, I'm just waiting to see how she performs in the snow. I'm from Illinois so I guess you could say I'm a flatlander. I like to ride the trails near and around my house. I also ditch ride a lot because there is really not that many places around my house to ride. Snow is pretty scarce so I ride whenever and wherever I can. I will post some pics of the sled as soon as possible.

I had an old 1980 Arctic Cat El Tigre 5000. This was a great sled to ride around, but the small suspension wasn't cuttin' it. Talk about a rough ride...lol

I already had a problem with it, I had it for one day before I had to take it to the shop. I fired it up at the place and it ran great, brought it home and the thing wouldn't start. Bad Battery...lol

EFI??? must be, i think it is from what ive heard, thats a minus for EFI is the need for the battery unless u have arcticcat's BEFI system, i know when i had regular EFI on my EXT, battery went dead, whatever u do, dont try to boost ur battery.....it will start, or might start, but then ur voltage regulator goes nuts...

Better pull that battery and put it on a charger overnight.
Maybe take it to a battery/electrics shop and have it load tested to be sure.
I have heard some things about Polaris' EFI that it is less than reliable,
have heard of guys around here picking up a set of racked Mikunis out of
a similar sled and bolting them on and doing away with the EFI altogether.
I wonder if that would affect the oil injection or not?
Good luck........get this done now cause if you think it's frustrating now.......
wait till there is 2 feet of snow on the ground........then you'll be pull'in your
hair out.
