I'd go with the 800, ya can never have enough power. Although i would check out the weight difference also, see how much lighter the 700 is, its porbably only a pount or two, but ya never know.

By next year the 800 twin should be living up to it's name. It will have a HP increase and should be around 150 HP stock.

Well if Erick is correct and the 800 gets some more juice, then go with that. If they don't change I would go with the 700, only a couple horse difference between the two and the 700s always seem more spunky to me.....That is MHO!

This is obviously a kid with no responsibities or values for other people's property. If you were in Canada you have to have insurance to ride on trails if you were in an accident and hit another sled here or in the US I think you would be in deep sh*# with out insurance. Please tell me what you would do if you ran into a brand new 2003 Polaris and did about 4,000.$ damage, or worse hurt the person on the sled. If I were you I would very seriously think about getting insurance, accidents happen to everyone. You could be as you said sued and that could be for the rest of your life if you hurt the person and they couldn't work again in their life. Guys don't get me wrong but with attitudes like this kid there should be a law about age limits of people buying sleds and manditory insurance laws. I was once 14 but feel I was alot more responsible. I grew up with morals and values for other people. I pray that you never have an accident but don't even think of coming to Canada to ride!!!!!!!! If you got caught here with out insurance you can kiss your brand new sled good buy..

In the US, you still need liability insurance. If you hit someone and they sue you, and you don't have insurance, it's all coming out of your pocket.

I buy insurance. I hit a deer with my sled, came out to about 1400 bucks damage, I pay $200 and insurance covers the rest.

can't go wrong with that.

Also, what if you hit a tree, what if you hit another person, what if you hit an animal, what if you hit a building, what if.

It doesn't matter who you are or how you ride. Accidents can happen to anyone.

Thank You Polaris-Man maybe he will listen to you and not from someone old enough to be his dad. I don't know anything and haven't been there or done that. Maybe you get the picture 98mxzx440 you have responsibilities to people around you. You may not belive this but you are not SUPERMAN even though you think you are. The best drivers in the world have accidents thats why they call them accidents and not on purposes, haha. Dont get us wrong all we are trying to tell you is you NEED INSURANCE

I have to agree with the insurance thing, if you don't care about yourself..at least care about the people or objects around you....my 2 cents..

I don't see why anyone wouldn't want insurance. Its the coolest thing in the world, lol, but seriously it is really nice to have, if you destroy your sled, $200 or so later, you have what you need to A. Fix it, or B. Go buy a new one! And no matter how laid back a rider, or how good you are, stuff happens, get insurance and it costs less! :)

mrnoah, leave the moderating to moderators and nobody was "bitching" at anyone.

And you don't buy insurance cuz "ive never hit anyone" you buy it cuz "I COULD hit someone"

I had never hit anything in my life, until this year, I hit a deer. I pay $200, voila, my new hood with decals and plastic thing under the hood (1300 dollars damage) is fixed.

It seems some people don't understand this though, and if they want to be ignorant fools and ride without insurance, that's their business. I just hope you never hit someone and cause personal harm, because then they can sue the hell out of you and it's all coming out of YOUR pocket.

It doesn't just go for sleds either, how about your car? Do you insure your car? I live on a farm, we insure our crops. Last year, we got hail, we got 30% hail coverage, we got money for it. Our neighbors lost about 95% of their field to hail, and got nothing, they had to pay the expenses out of their pocket, and got no returns.

I'm going to shut up now though because these "I don't need insurance" people won't listen anyway, they are all supermen who can't ever have an accident.
