Should be a lot of fun on the ice and trails! Cant wait!

Its my first snowmobile since I was a kid. And yes I'll take it very easy. Had it inspected by a snowmobile mechanic and he said he cant believe how well it was taken care of. Good sign!

great sled! have one myself, dont take the corners too fast, as i learned today she is a little easy to tip! the only problem we have had is the fuel line in the tank rotting off. if i were you id replace it with some new stuf right away.

Is that just a regular XLTsp that somebody put a two up seat on? If it was a factory two-up, wouldn't it come with a 136" track?

Yeah, I think Pigboy's right- that's an XLT special with a 2-up seat. Nice sled! One thing to be careful of - with two riders bottoming out that suspension with studs-OUCH!

If it is just a regular XLTsp and youre going to be doing a lot of two up trail riding you may want to look into heavier springs for the back. If it will just be two up for ice fishing then you will probably be ok.

Fox Shocks are rebuildable (better performance) and it looks in good shape, good find!

Great find. Checking the rear springs is easy. Measure the diameter of the spring and call the dealer to verify you have two-up springs. You shouldn't have issues with the studs, their not tall enough to worry about. Just make sure there's tunnel protectors above the track in the tunnel.

you dont have to worry about hitting your coolers with studs on these sleds, the coolers are under the floor boards...
