I paid $2540 delivered for it (I am in CANADA, look through out classifieds and you will see this is a decent deal).

It has 7300 miles, brand new 1" Camoplast with 96 studs (3 pull troughs, 4 lugs are damaged) and brand new 6" Woody's Dually carbides with 10 miles on them. Came with a owners manuel, Polaris cover, 2 aftermarket spare belts, Polaris mirrors, a 1" riser block, tool kit and a jet kit (6 jet sets). It has a rebuilt primary and secondary clutch, zero scratches or rips, looks like it just rolled off the showroom. I bought it off the original owner, and he was in his early 60's, and I know the guy was not lying when he said it was trail ridden only as the trail passes are stuck on the windshield 1/4" thick LOL. It is mostly original, zero rust, only modification/accessory is an EGT. Only problems with the sled is that the gas gauge in the cap stopped working.

Now technically I did not buy it off the original owner, My cousin bought it off him, and the sled's crankshaft was broken. We bought a freshly refurbished crank for $150 including my old crank.

The catch with that is, there is a local guy (not a shop, just a guy out of his garage) who has been doing cranks for over 30 years. Everyone brings him cranks, shops, dealerships, people, etc... well the crank he gave me lasted 13 miles, then the "cheek" drifted off the "pin"... almost unheard of, means the guy did a bad press job. Well I brought it to my local Polaris used parts place, and gave them that blown crank, and I paid $300 for another freshly refurbished one. That crank lasted 40 miles, then the rod bearing went, which cooked the piston. This one also had a bad press job as some of the bearings are falling off.

It is not the sled, as everything is in check, and I was running a pretty hefty pre-mix blend in the fuel, along with oil injection.

So this is mostly a venting thread for me, and to at least show the sled off a little as the chassis is in showroom condition! 20101227201045359_23162.jpg

Bring the bad pressed crank to Mr. 30 years and tell him time for a re-do, it was his fault.

Easier said then done... The original crank was re-done in mid summer, and he does 100's a crank a year. he wont remember me. And he doesn't offer warranties... And the shop I haven't talked to yet.

that sucks, you need to have the next one trued and welded, that makes them almost indestructable other than the bearings. I wish there was a guy that did cranks for 150 around here.
