A co-worker of my buddy has a 1998 Polaris (don't know the exact model) for sale at a reasonable price. I haven't looked at it yet, but it has 1500 miles on it and is supposedly in excellent condition and well maintained. I am a little sketchy about a belt driven, liquid cooled machine though. Can someone put my mind to ease or confirm for me that it is better to stay away from such a machine?
(I have heard that belts on belt-driven machines tend to slip when they are wet/submerged and tend to break. I also think air/fan cooled is better because its one less thing to go wrong-like cracking/hole in the radiator.)
