Hi everybody!
Im live in Sweden so youll have to excuse my english...

I have been riding my 500f for 2 years now and i absolutely love it!

I have a few options for this season and would like your input...

Option one (The expensive one):
I have the possibility to buy a new in crate 600 sporttrail
Whats the pros and cons compared to the 500?
Added weight?
Reliability?
Cooling system sufficient on hard pack and warm spring days?
Pros and cons compared to the outlaw?


Option (The cheap one) 2:
upgrade my 500 with a 136 track with the angled skid kit... how much is the deep snow capabilites improved??
Do the Trailriding capabilities suffer in any way??

Option 3: Convert my 500 with liquid rotax power and the 136 thing mentioned above...

I do mostly backcountry riding but sometimes i have to ride long distances on trail to ge there...

My 500 has all the updates.

Sorry for the long post!
Thanks!
/Magnus

Then you can share your excitement with your friends, the $ will be forgotten, and the experiences will be with you for ever.

Long term the money value will only climb, seen many, any, for sale lately?

Read the other posts regarding engine cooling, pics.
