pics would help.
How much money you got? If you're hard up like me, i wouldn't. but it depends n how big that crack is.

If it were me I would, 70 bucks is not a bad fix and it keeps the sled looking good. Plus you wont have to explain to everyone that you rolled your sled. Its all personal opinion though. If you keep it drill a small hole on each end to keep it from getting bigger and then run zip ties across to hold it together.

When you click reply you will see two paper clips, one is for existing pictures in your gallery the other is to upload new ones.

If all you have to fix is $70 at the end of the year i wouldnt be complaining and just do it.

just paint it man, save the money for gas when your riding. Besides if you paint it you might really get into try a darker black. Structurally it should be just fine.

You could, if you want a temp. fix. You'll still see the crack though. Maybe when you know you have the money to spend, look for a used panel, if you can't find one, then go new. Fixing that one the right way is going to cost you approx. the same amount as a new one. The epoxy kit isn't cheap.

if it doesnt affect the way the sled runs or handles or anything like that just paint it black, paint both side pannels 5 dollars of spray paint would do it. But then again your sled is a lot nicer then mine really. I would just end up painting mine cuz its older.

yeah good call sometimes the zip tie line looks really good, it gives it an aggressive look if you do it right. Pictures of this would be great. Ethan thats the best part about having older sleds, you dont have to worry about chips and dings as much. But newer sleds are nice, I just hate having to worry about dings and stuff.

Why would you want a 2000 super sport 550 when you have a much newer and more powerful sled already?
