Re: Frankenstein XLT - other polaris\'ers
both should be good sleds, i would say that the xlt is probably worth the extra $500 depending on a few things. has it been rebuilt?
if not it will probably run around $100 to do that, i just put a new ring in my 94 stx and it ran me about 30 bucks. The xlt is a great
riding sled and the electric start will be great b/c they are a can be a bugger to start. The indy 500 would be good as well except that
you are sacrificing some ride quality with the older suspension. also if it needs a track that I would figure no less than $400 to
replace that. The xlt is a 580 triple, it runs very smooth, I rode a friends and loved. I think that either would be good, the only thing
with the 500 is that 10,000 miles is a lot and you will have a lot of maintenance to do if things haven't be regularly replaced. check
thinks like idler wheels, skis, carbides, picks, etc. for signs of excessive abuse. If possible take for a test ride just to listen for
excessive shakes and rattles. The polaris clutches are great but they need to be maintained like anything else so look them over as
well. good luck and have a merry christmas.
