Hi, with all the new technology available nowadays, I am bit overwhelmed...
Our family is buying a sled. I have been doing a lot of reading and talking to folks, gathering info. Novice rider, looking for recreational riding, 2 up--mix in some hunting and trapping. Some bush, some trail, no high marking, no 100mph (I am also looking to learn how to trap if anyone has an interest for an apprentice/assistant)
Some specific concerns I have are:
Overheating-due to slow riding or starting and stoping
Starting problems -40 and such
Getting stuck/recovery (does size matter/weight)
Longevity before major maintenance
-not all inclusive but a start-
The two sleds I have narrowed down to are:
2014 Polaris 550 LXT Fan/2 stroke,
2013 or 2014 Yamaha Venture MP 500, liquid cooled/4 stroke.
Pros and Cons?
