2000 Polaris XC 500 SP 45th anniversary edition.

May get decent price, chassis/suspensions are same as my '98 XCR, I'd take the back track shock out of the xcr and put it in the '00 XC 500 SP, raise the bars and all that stuff.

Does anyone have any info on problems with the ENGINE on a '00 XC 500 SP?

This one runs really good, it's my buddie's dad's sled, and I've driven it many times, I love the power, so much more than my 440. I'm lookin at gettin something more powerful.

hmm, if my memory serves me right the 00 45th anny is red/black??
very swweeet looking, i know a few that have them, and they have never mentioned any troubles, i have even searched for one before the xlt, but no luck. i would say go for it, if the price is right, hell i even have the 00 snow video with those on it, and i prolly still have the 00 polaris brochure around here someplace.

I've got a 99 500 XC all black, much better looking than the red and black, but if you like it great. The only diff is VES, which is spozda make a huge difference. I love my XC, 2800 miles on it, only changed the belt.
She'll do 100 mph. on the lake on a crisp cold day. Great ride, starts good in cold (3 pulls at -35 C), plenty quick enough for me.
Happy sled hunting.

Yeah, it has the VES valves, first year for the 500, that's why I was wondering if anyone had heard of issues with it.

I remember reading an article about them and the mag guy who tested it absoulutely loved it for what it was. he summed up the article with a comment like.... best midsized sled he has rode, handles so nice it leaves you looking for more. which I say the 700 aniversaries were the same looking but faster. go BIG.

I know from experiance. They are a sweet ride. Mine will keep up with most 600 triples that are the same age or older. The looks are what sold me on mine, but the performance was even better.

I made my decision and I'm keeping my 440. I took it for a rip across the yard today on the grass and it's still got the power to impress me. More jam would be nice, but I have other things to look @ so I'm gonna keep this machine.

I was there when he drove it and before he turned around I knew he wouldn't want to get rid of it

there is a 2001 XC 500 sitting at the local shop I am looking at. Edge suspension is a big factor I must say. Not sure if it is a VES sled though. I know in 2003 they make a 500 and a 500 sp the SP having VES the other not.
