Re: Frankenstein XLT - other polaris\'ers

Oh man. It all depends. I have a '93 XLT Special....'errr, what used to be a '93 XLT Special. I ride it HARD. It needed rings at right around 5000 miles, but it's pretty cheap to do. If you keep it stock they are really reliable. I have a rule about buying sleds, yes- even new ones. If you don't have another $1000 to spend beyond the cost of the sled then you could be in for some headaches. I'd buy the XLT and ride it until it breaks than fix it. It's the best way to learn about sledding. LOL.... The XLT was one of the best sleds in the early '90's and can be made to run really FAST!!- of course with a tradeoff in reliability.
