    The 900s are plagued with problems. There are some guys out there who've dedicated themselves to debugging the 900 and their sled are beasts but it takes tearing the thing down to the bulkhead...rebracing, new fabbed motor mounts. Lots of time and money.

    Try riding an IQ/RAW chassis this season before deciding. They carve like dream.

    Pol pushed this motor too fast, and didn't look at how other manufacturers had worked around the vibration issue by using counter-balancers.

    They overheated to the point of melting plastic, broke the cranks at PTO's, sucked belt dust through an over-engineered, restrictive intake. It goes on, and it cost Pol alot of money and customer base because they were very reluctant to cover much of this under warranty.

    They should have dropped the triple 800 in there.

    everything you need to know. I have an 06 900, it's been a good sled for the money so far.
