I have no personal experience, but I have read thru the 900 Polaris section. Lots of info on those sleds in the sticky section.

Hope that helps a lil.

Definitely pop up to the Polaris section and have a look through the 900 forum... There are TONS of threads discussing problems, solutions, mods, and the capabilities of these sleds. I love mine, but admit that they do take some setup to get them where they need to be to run reliably and perform decently. If you're not one who is mechanically inclined or just want something that is 100% gas and go I might advise against a 900... but if you are good with your hands and enjoy the occasional tinker session, they are usually pretty cheap sleds to get into as most are afraid of them.

Good luck
