Bryan you want a long track dude. If you were to get another sled get what you want. You'll end up longtracking anyways so your saving money. I did a search and found this.... http://tomsservicecenter.com/showcas...ID=9781&Used=1, Is that what your thinking about?? I looked at those last year and thought about it. Like Ace said, I'd think about it all the time.

I've got a relatively stock internally 2002 RMK 800 w/2800 +/- miles on it and had no problems at all with it. By the same token, my 2003 Vertical Escape 800 had less then 2000 when it let go. Granted it was modded in & out, but it's basically a paper weight now. Strange thing is it ran like a champ right up t letting go. Everything I can find on the 800's is leading me to believe it's all in the initial setup. Hopefully my new motor will fall into that good catagory.....

I wouldnt pass up the sled just because of crank bearings. you would absolutely love the ride. and what if the motor makes it a couple seasons before it goes!! or maybe one day? every used sled is going to give out at some time. when the motor takes a crap, buy another 800 twin, weld them together for a 1200 triple and now you have something!!
If the boner police are here I need a lawyer.

That's really what I'm starting to think. No matter what sled I get, someone is going to have an opinion, or a "my brother's shit blew up". This isn't the old triple-500 and indy-650 days when you'd put 6k on it and do a topend. Never heard of crank bearings on the old old shit.
Buy it, ride it for the remainder season, tough boy it in the spring for $295 or whatever and have no worries.
