Default 1997 Polaris Indy500 SKS

I've listed my Indy500 SKS for sale so I figured I'd list it here as well. Would make a stellar deal to a Slednut so if your interested shoot me a pm.

8800 Miles, yep you read that right lol. Aaen pipe. Runs great but the body is rough. I've been calling it a backup/hooter scooter but have come to accept the women in my house won't ride and I have too many sleds so its gotta go. Its just sat in the garage all winter without any use at all. Its for sale for $1200 obo.

Ok Flatty your comment sent me to Polaris website to see the 14 lineup. I found myself wiping drool from my collar and pulling my sticky panties away from my excreting pee pee. I absolutely LOVE the Matte black 800 Assault Switchback!! With that said its 60 pounds heavier than my current sled so I couldn't really entertain that as I still do love my snowmobile. The colors on that sled with the red rails just gives me a boner! What a color combo!!

Now what did get my attention and I'm slightly surprised by it lol. The 14 Indy line is packed with 10 sleds. The one that got my total attention was the doggiest of them all lol. I'm cheesing over the Indy 550 144". Same exact chassis as mine, 429 pounds in stock trim, and $7000? Considering I've managed to get mine to 400 pounds that tells me 375 pounds is easily achievable without breaking the bank. Now I'm sure Aaen will make a 550 pipe like they have every other chassis so your talking a 144" Assault chassis with 375 pounds and a possible 80 hp reliable fanner engine. I'm quite impressed with that, I want to ride one. No not to replace my snowmobile, but your talking a hooter scooter or beginner sled that will be able to follow you everywhere you go.

That's pretty much the same 550 engine that was in the Trail RMK I rented a few years ago. Plenty enough power to turn the track, but it won't go much faster than 55.


On a side note, I know of two Trail RMK 550's that melted down in the same week this year...

I'm keeping mine for another year. I have enough stuff to buy that I don't need to spend money that I don't have. For the money it would cost me to trade I could buy a fan for mine or upgrade enclosed trailers.

Speaking of trailers mud, what's going on with your stealth dealership?

I've tried with a couple different guys at Stealth. I am 55 miles as the crow flies to thier largest dealer, whom they just happen to have an agreement not to let anyone else sell their trailers within a 60 mile radius. That is the place they directed me to buy my personal trailer. After the second turn down I gave up on Stealth trailers.

I was showing Missy the snowcheck version of the RMK/Switchback Assault last night because the red powdercoated rails with the graphics give me major wood. Didn't help my cause at all when she asked if I was getting one. No I didn't plan on getting one, but damnit when approval is given it sure makes you think lol. Totally regret showing her lol.

Even if I bit the bullet, I wouldn't sell the Assault.
