Looking at a 97 Ski-Doo MXZ 670. I'm new to the sport but enjoy speed and power. Is this sled up my ally? I have a fiancee who might ride with me a few times, but not much, thats why I'm leaning towards a single seat. How does the MXZ handle two riders (the fiancee is about 100lbs)?. How about reliablity ? Thanks for reading, hope to here soon.
I put over 6K/miles on mine with few problems. I needed to replace the oil pump seal last season, and have the primary clutch replaced (factory recall). Other than that it was just regular care and feeding. As for if it will carry a passenger......SkiDoo does not recommend it...but it can be done. It certainly has the power...space is a little on the cramped side. I have done it...but it is not an incredibly pleasant experience (but then I don't like carrying passengers).
Go for it! You'll love the power of a ski-doo! They handle like a dream! I dont know how comfortable 2 riders would be...but that goes with any brand of sled with a 1 up seat. You defenatly wouldnt have trouble with power though! Good Luck!
The MXZ 670 is one of the best sleds ever built by Ski-Doo. The engine is strong as is the chassis. Forget about riding 2-up for any distance--maybe an occassionaly ride here and there, but that's all... If you plan on riding double a lot, you should consider a different sled (Touring SE, etc).
This is a great sled ! But it depends where your riding. I live in Utah and I usally ride a Summit X because the MXZ looses power as elevation increases.But in the spring when the snow is more hard packed I spend my time on the MXZ.I have never had any problems with mine,I even had the air box drilled out and it peped it up a lot.So if your back east or midwest I don't think you can go wrong.
