    I bought this sled in 2010 with 3000 miles. I was a great sled up until 2 years ago when, I went off a small jump (only 3 feet of air) and broke both my front and rear torque arm and bent my shock rod... $800 in parts later I was back on the snow. As preventive maintenance I rebuilt the top end last year, went 7 miles just to spin a lower crank bearing. Pulling the motor on this sled is tough but its even harder to put it back in. SO this year after all the work I've done it should like a brand new sled.
    Weird things the sled does:
    Lights are rather dim until I hit the brakes then they become very bright. This makes night riding difficult.
    When it first starts the battery light blinks. (there is not a battery on this sled)

    Runs just like new. I have no complaints about this bike. Compared to other bikes today I would consider it ugly or outdated, but its 20 years old so that is expected. I ride this more than I drive my truck in the summer. I took it on a solo 583 mile trip from Alpena Michigan to Grand Rapids Michigan. I spent a little over 8 hours on the bike on that trip and the only thing that was sore was the inside of my legs. The seat is pretty square and after 6 hours it finally started to take a toll on my body.
