Spent the weekend up north with some buddies this past weekend. Just thought I'd throw a few pictures up for all the pic whores out there. Trails were pretty rough but we had a ton of fun on the logging roads in the area. Cheers.

Love everything about the sled. The suspension, the power, the rider forward, reverse, etc.

....but I HATE the steering. Looking to get some ZBROZ Racing spindles for it. Sounds like they are the ticket for the Fusion/IQ sleds.

I have never heard of steering issues before tonight?

Is there a reason you got a 600 over the other two offerings?

From what I've been reading Polaris really screwed up with the front end geometry with the 2005, & 2006 Polaris Fusions. Some aftermarket companies (ZBroz Racing & Holz Racing) have made much improved versions and Polaris finally caught on in their 2008 and newer spindle design.

And I really bought my sled based on price. $3500 and in perfect shape I couldn't turn it down. I really wanted the 600 so I could avoid the 700/900 vibration issues, as my 600 is a totally different motor. I really enjoy the HP and the gas mileage I've been seeing so far. After the riding this weekend I averaged just a hair under 12mpg under hard trail riding.

I do miss the triple motors. I still have an '89 650 sitting out back but I never get time for it. The Ultra was a finicky bastard so I'm kinda happy to see all of that gone. lol.

The Fusion really serves the exact purpose I wanted. 100% reliable, comfortable and fun.

Everything's all there. Needs the skid mounted in, coolant filled and bled, carbs sync'ed and small stuff like that. If I was going to run it a lot I'd prolly put new gaskets in it. Shes got about 4500 miles on the original motor.

Wow WiGguy, for being a prick, (your title) you have some decent pictures. Figured they would be some extreme action shots. Where were you?

You know what's shitty? His ass gets banned from SF and all of a sudden some of you pricks are nice to him? Is it because you think he'll be around more and you need to get used to him?

No, I had no issue with him except the occasional assholery to some people, but never directed to me. I dont like the way he treats Westy but I bet we can put that behind us.
