just picked up a 2002 edge x 700 to replace my 91 indy 500 with x10 suspension upgrade. was looking online for this sled's specs, but can't find any. Does the sled have a model number other than edge x? is it an xcr? I would like to learn all I can about the sled, but can't find anything.

Also, the sled has 6,000 miles, but looks it great condition and gas great compression. What should I do for maintainance, etc to get it ready for first snow!

thanks,

Jerry

should be a good sled for you them edge x's look really sharp, lk bj hard said, chaincase, clutches belts, slides, make sure every thing is good in the suspension no broken springs, shcoks charged, grease all the suspension parts, like weeps said clean carbs and ves valves, i am right now going through my clutches cleaning them and makin sure all the parts move frelly and are not wore

Its just a spring order XCSP, but you probly got clicker shocks and a few other little upgrades, the 'X' package if you will.

Lot of people say every 3500 miles to go through the bearings and go through the motor. i have an 01/02 700 prototype that has 5000 miles on it and nothing has been touched on it. it still runs extremely strong and my philosophy is to not fix it until its broke. like everyone says, do the basic cleaning and greasing and ride!!

Your sled is a 2002 Polaris XcSp with the spring order package. This package consists of;

-trick "X" graphics
-tunnel braces
-yellow/blue or red/blue color scheme
- "X" snowflap
-the option to get Fox Clicker shocks

it is more or less a cosmetic package over a 2002 XcSp.

the 700cc V.E.S motors are great, about 135HP, very reliable, lots of pep, i'm sure you will love it!

Congrats on the new sled!
I just sold my 02 blue/yellow 600 x that gave me many trouble free miles.
Besides what was mentioned, I did add a longer snow flap & the extra tunnel cooler for extra cooling in low snow conditions. There was a tech bulletin at one time not sure if it pertained to the 700s.
Great sled for sure.

I believe the 700 VES was more like 128hp, the 800 was 135HP.
The 02 700 was reported 134hp and a factory tuned 800 was 125 or so (Dynoport). The stock 800 was pig rich to keep exhaust valves cool, sure you could lean mains to make more hp but then the valves would stick destroying top end. Polaris's later band-aid fix was to upgrade valves to titanium or stainless. The 700's had valves protected by coolant passage around them and do not have valve issues.

The 02's were hot for ignition, carburation, and air box design. The 03's were down on power and it was worse for following years.

A more aggressive helix (HSP or SLP 50-36), taller gear ratio (1.8) and a Tempa-Flow will make it a reliable fast rocket that is great on fuel. I also added rear cooler which dropped running temps a lot.

Not sure what your laughing at but the 800 numbers are more sad than funny. My memory over 8 years is not perfect so I looked up the dyno tests. The 02 800 was up on hp but as we all know could not last unless it was detuned to a lower hp.




Ref HP info from DT:
2001, 1997 & 1998 700 XC 124 HP non power valve engine
2002 800 XC 137.5 HP @ 7800 RPM
2002 700 XC 133.1 HP @7800 RPM jetted down for a BSFC .623
2002 600 XC 116.4 HP @ 7700 RPM
2003 800 ProX 121.7 HP @ 7300, stock jetting
2003 700 ProX 120.60HP @ 7800 RPM , stock jetting .72 BSFC
2004 600 ProX 108.9 HP @ 7800, . 76 BSFC
2004 700 ProX 120.7 HP @ 700 RPM, .73 BSFC
2004 800 ProX 115 HP @7300 RPM Appeared to have dyno induced reactions to the new deto sensor or water temp sensor retarded timing. With a 2003 XC CDI box & wire harness -- 122.7 HP @ 7800, .76 BSFC.

thanks for all the input!!

where can I buy a maintainance manual for it?

i want to stud it, any suggestions?

also,the key area has 2 positions for different gas grades, what's up with that? does it run better on premium, or does it do just fine on 87 octane?

thanks!

if you run premium in it, switch it to 'premium'. anf im thinkin 91 octane or higher, or maybe 89 or higher. anything lower, its on regular. It advanced the timeing a bit for premium gas.
