So, I was looking at pics of my sled from both 99' and 2000, and my sled was manufactured 11/12/98, making it a 99. But from looking at the graphics, it really looks like the 2000. Both tunnel and hood look like they are from a 2000. Was this just a differnt graphic style or is this somehow a different year?? Heres a link to one of the sites I was comparing them. The words 500 and XC are also switched around between the years. From looking at a few pics on google, some of the 99's had my style graphics, but not many of them. I just want to know if they used my style graphics in 99. Thanks, and sorry for the long boring post.

I need to do some research on mine too because it has a '99xc500 hood but the seat and tank are from a '99xcsp500 it is probly as simple as the hood was damaged and replaced.

But my tunnel graphics are of those from a 2000, lol. I dont really care, I just want to find out a bit more on this thing. Yours is probably the SP version if it has that tank and seat.

Snowcheck possibly? I don't know when it started, but during the spring, whoever orders gets to choose from a couple different sets of decals

Do you have an air filter where a windsheild bag would go, I know that 2000 and newer had it but the 99 did not

Look at your handlebar cover. If it has the star emblem then it is a 2000. If it says Polaris Est. 1954 then you have a 1999, the person that owned it before you could have just put decals from a 2000 on there and then put the tunnel graphics on there as well.

No I know how that whole date thing works on the tunnel, Like i said, it says it was manufactured 11/98, making it a 99! The graphics just look like those of a 2000.
