800 RMk\'s

Has anyone else heard that the 800 was still having engine problems. Someone here said that Polaris is sending new engines to the dealers so they can replace the engine that the machine came with, even before they let the new machines leave the shop. Is there anything to this rumor? They are just starting to get the new 800's in Alaska.

Bob , I really don't think there's any truth in that. The sleds been out lots. Read the posts from various testers on this site. Besides building an 800 is not rocket science , people have been getting megga horsepower out of this engine case for years..02$.... Target

Re: 800 RMk\'s

I asked several of guys around here that have the new 800, but non had heard anything about any engine problems. I do know that there has been a shortage of spark plugs for it though. Champion is not suppling it now and NGK has a platinum version for around $10 a plug!

I have heard from my dealer that anyone with a prototype 800 will receive a new motor for their snowmobile. Polaris evidently made some changes to the production engine.
