As far as I know pipes wont hurt your XLT SP or any other snowmobile for that fact if they are jetted right I love the XLT SP I say go for it, Also the Clymer BLUE BOOK says $2665.00 is average for a 1995.

Re: Polaris XLT Sp

What the problem is (especially on 95"s) is that the lubrication hole on the pto side crank bearings is not large enouph, and with pipes, running at high rpm's, the bearing don't get enouph lubrication. I have rebuilt more of that particular motor than any other (all with pto side bearings shot). I also remember a time when the local polaris dealer had over 25 of these sleds that went down with the same problem. I know that they were drilling the hole out larger when doing a rebuild. I don't suppose you know if it has been gone through?

I think it would be an ok sled with out pipes. Some say to run it at 8200 rpm with pipes. I don't think it's worth the investment for me.
