I was just wondering why did ski doo get rid of the beaver tail on the REVs after 03? Was it cuz they just looked goofy or what. Personally im glad they did. Looks alot better with out it.

somewhere i heard that the beaver tail didnt do very good in the powder because the beaver tail would get plugged up. i dont know if that thats why they got rid of it but could be part of it.

i think it was ousted by popular demand. i think it looked horrible. and when alot of people just got fenders for them anyway...might as well have it stock

I have an 03 six hundred and the beaver tail isnt great in the powder but it also isnt bad and it doesnt plug up?? I would much rather have a platform though,, looks wayyyyy better. Also sometimes in reverse the flap goes under and sometimes may rip right off but i have had no problems.



To me it is fine

Observations based on a friends sled: hard to lift sled when stuck because you have to overcome the articulation of the beavertail to raise back of sled. Too many moving parts. Moving parts wear out. Example, my buddy called me the other day to ask if i knew where he could find a beavertail kit so he could replace worn parts. Probably BRP wanted to standardize skids and frames to reduce number of different assemblies.

Did you tell him to ditch the beavertail?

He thinks it's the greatest thing since sliced bread. At this point it's "unique" so he thinks it's cool.

Yeah i can tell your a real mature person, go ride your first year test sled that looks like a huge pile. Your ride a 03 rev beaver tail you can find them for 3100 bucks all day long, a prox is worth 3100 all day long too, so think befor you speak.

PS iam sure alot of people would rather have a "moded" polaris rather then a stock 03 beaver tail.

I really dont know were you have gotten your facts but its quite understandable that your mentaly chalanged since you think your sled is a mod with hedlight cover and some stickers. Your just grumpy because you own a beaver tail rev, i dont see why have to come to this site and take anger out on all the members. Didnt your sled blow up, another fine product from skidoo....
