How many ladies riders out there are going to snow check a 2016? What did you decide to get?

I know I want the 2016 RMK Pro 800 with the new AXYS chassis. I just discovered that if you get the 3" track it comes with the chain drive but if you stick with the 2.6" you get the belt drive like the one in my current '13.

What opinions are out there about chain drive vs belt drive?? I know I really like my belt drive currently and have has zero issues with it.

I am going with Pro 800 155" with the 2.6 track, e-start, clickers, low bars, and the gauge. I too really like the belt drive, just more responsive and lighter is better, no issues with mine in the past.

I snow checked the same but did not upgrade the shocks and I opted for the 4 year warranty instead of the gauge. WYsteph, what is the difference between the monotube and the clickers?

They have a piggyback chambers and quick adjust clickers, basically a more adjustable and plusher ride vs the stock monotubes. $400 for a nicer set of shocks is worth it in my opinion. Even if it just helps your knees be a little less sore at the end of the day.

You can still get the gauge and the 4 year warranty, it just costs $700 instead of being free.

My wife snowchecked a 163 T3 Lava Red Ski-Doo. Would be fun to try the Axys also. We looked at that option and was almost $1000 more so stuck with the 'Doo.

I'm getting the 2016 Polaris AXYS 800 w/ 155 x 2.6 track. I haven't had problems with my belt drive 14 Pro but my husband goes through them, and he even installed a after market belt drive kit which was better and the belts were cheaper to replace.

We both prefer the 2.6" over the 3" track so he is swapping his belt drive out for a chain case on his AXYS.

I can't wait to ride these machines!
