  1. So I have the opportunity to buy a 2005 Polaris RMK 800 Edge. 440 miles, two sled tilt trailer, $2500. The lady who owned it's husband bought it for her, and it scared her so much that it's been sitting for 4 years since the divorce. I rode it last year, and it started second pull, has been on a stand so the rubber is OK. I know they have some known issues, but at that price I have room to address those before I even ride it this year. This is my first sled, so it seems like a pretty good deal despite the flaws that model had. So I guess my questions are: A) It's a pretty screamingly good deal, especially with the trailer, right? B)I've been looking through the forums and see the "known issues", but overall is it pretty reliable? Like I said, first sled and I've ridden them for maybe 5 hours in my life, so it seems like a good starting point to see if it's something I want to commit way more time and money to. Any thoughts, good or bad, would be greatly appreciated!
  2. I just posted my '96 Techno for sale, if any of you Beta-heads know someone who wants a bike their kid can toss around. No CA green sticker, no title, price totally negotiable. I just want to see it go to a good home where someone will get as much fun out of it as I did.

  4. That's a good point. I've been reading that people have issues finding ones that don't interfere with the choke knob or have the nipples in the wrong place.
  5. Sweet. I've never dealt with a vaccum petcock before, wondered how this was all going to pan out. Wish me luck, I've never done a jet change before, but based on the instructions on here I'm sure it's going to go well with minimum cursing. Unlike the tire change.
  6. Hi all, So I'm about to rejet my '11 400s this weekend, which requires the removal of the fuel tank. In looking at the petcock, there is no "off"position, just On, Res, and Prime. So, my question is should I run the tank down/drain it prior to removing it? Otherwise it would stand to reason that fuel is just going to come spewing out everywhere. Am I correct in thinking this, or is there something I'm missing?
