sleds at 1900miles now so i figured i would put in new pistions and rigs to avoid having to buy cylinders. Sled ran kick ass and pulled hard. Broke it down on tuesday and found the top end to be fuct $250 turned into $1500

also replaced intake boots om the injection ect, took it out for the 1st test ride. runs just as good as it did before. although i get 100 more rpm now. Sweet upgrade:dontknow:

Hmm, I've read nothing good about the '08-'10 800 Poos, lots of top end issues. Even Mainjet admitted they had problems.

We'll see how the new ones are for reliability, just traded off my '07 700 Dragon on a '12 RMK 800 155". Did a decal delete as soon as I got it home too, might get the side panels painted flat black to match the hood.

Ha ha! Not enough snow to test 'er out fully and was set up pretty hard out in the open stuff. First impression was it didn't feel any better at boondocking then my Dragon but we'll see when it gets into a couple feet of fresh snow. :D Definitely has a noticable power gain over the 700 so I'm looking forward to making it work in the deep stuff when we do get it.

Finally got some fresh snow in the mountains and got to try the new ride in about 2' of powder. Works awesome! Huge power gain over the 700, pulls so much harder it makes my Dragon feel like it was a 600. :D

Even with all the new snow I managed to clip a rock and go over the bars again, fortunately no damage this time! Forecast is for snow all week so next days off should be awesome!!!!!!!

Over the phone they didn't want to take my 700 Dragon on trade because they already had 3 of them plus a couple of 800's. I've dealt with Aaron for years and bought many toys from him so was a little pissed. Decided to load it up and see them in person and if they still didn't want it I would let them know I was going out of town. Talked to Kevin and we wrote up a deal that afternoon and they gave me really good money for my sled so was happy with that. Take a look at their used list on the website, I think it's only half of what they really have, theirs a shitload of used stock there when I picked up the Proride.

Didn't hear anything about the Cat belts though. Just wish the Poo belts were closer in price to the 2011 M's, at $180 each I don't want to be burning up belts this season! go fuck yourself

Really? I tried the Ultimax on my 800 Summit and it kept shredding them, put the $140 Doo belts on and they would last. :dontknow: Thought maybe clutch alignment but it was dead on and all the mounts were solid. :confused0006:
