Who said you cant get a sled worth $10,300 for $8000?? Well here she is my 2010 polaris dragon switchback 800!! Picked her up friday night and I was very happy with the price along with the dealership I delt with. This dealership is small and everyone knows who you are and treats you with respect not like the bigger dealerships I have been to in the past. when I drove this sled 15 ft into the trailer and the front end was pulling a wheelie with just a small snap of the throttle to get up the ramp into the trailer so the brakes were on!!!! Like I said I only drove it 15 Ft and can tell this thing is more powerfull than my 2004 pro x2 700 by far I do know its a 6 year wake up call on technology. Heres the bad news.... Its going to be a looooong summer. I will post all custom work I am going to do during the summer, just ordered the Holtz fuel bracket this morning!!

Take care

definetly get the PC5! or else you will be pissed when you 800 needs a re-flash ever couple hundred miles......... PC5 is a must for an 800 liberty cfi. a MUST. Also, get rid of that 1.25" x 136" ripsaw, terrible track. ?Upgrade to a 136" x 15" x 1.5" camoplast intense.

incorrect dude. not a must, just a nice thing to have, they dont lean out anymore and they dont have the mmid range burp. and 1.25 ripsaws are the best trail tracks made

Quick question for you? Do you owe anything on that sled? If not it is one great sled! Not that owning a new sled means that you owe on it but I always compared owing on a sled equal to the sled riding me, just my opinion. lol . . . It gets you out, you have fun, what else is needed? Enjoy it

INOCORRECT. The 800 poo motor need relfashes every couple hundred miles (ask any D8 owner, its a piss off), and the PC5 fixes that, anyone with a D8 will reccomemd it.

**(if your dads D8 didnt, he was lucky, my buddy has a 09 D8, refales 5 times in 1900 miles). always didnt run good, has hesitations, burbs, bogging, running way to rich)**

And the 1.25" ripsaw is a shitty track, trenchers special, in anything off a packed trail, they just trench and suck in loose snow. they also arent that good on water, the only thing they are good for are packed groomed trails. But he bought a 136" for a reason, im guessing?

You bought that is a carry over from your local dealer with 0 miles on it or was it a demo?

Sold two sleds I had one that went for $2000 and the other for $3300 I only pulled $3ooo out of my bank account for the new sled. I never pull loans for my sleds I pay cash and get it over with. I am in a good position to do this with my job and bonuses I recive at the end of the year plus its my birthday Saturday and this is my present to me!

Not a demo, still in the crate when deal was made with the dealer plus took advantage of polaris deals.

Ok so, $9400 out the door then? Better off going new '11 for just over $10K then, but you still got the great deal at the right time, and it's a 136 track[thumb]
