One in our group went down and also read some posts about the bearing failures. Two guys also posted a Youtube review of their Polaris 850s. Both went down with bearing failures. Some of the commenters on that video also post about failures.Interesting.
Have you seen some failures?
I’ve never changed a bearing on a Polaris newer than 2007.
(Owned 12 different sleds since then)
Might be a trail sled thing? Ive. Never seen an issue on rmksOne in our group went down and also read some posts about the bearing failures.

my stock 17 cat scratchers are still working fine, 2100 miles, maybe half of that with them down, couple of reverses....but was thinking of these if they ever break. http://www.carbonsled.com/accessories.html
I thought titanium was all the rage? seems like a good spot to utilize the extra durability and weight savings of Ti. Or do they not throw the snow?
i like the cat setup with the 90 degree bend that grabs the snow and also hooks over the rail when not in use so no extra hardware needed. i thought the polaris was same but idk.
Ran all sorts of ti arms and even have titanium hammers. Doesn't rust, brittle, snaps instead of bends. Kind of like 60 grade rebar vs. 40. If an engineer is involved you are using 60 grade. Bend it over in a doorway and it snaps once in a while. 40 grade bends twice as easy but doesn't snap. So how great does that make it?^ weird, ive bought 3 or 4 upgrades in Ti and always experienced the opposite. very durable material and light, doesnt rust like chromoly. Not sure if buradnt runs scratchers but i think his motors and clutches are held together with Ti. I had an old SLP ski scratcher break off in my hand the other day on my vintage mod, so was looking around at options, thinking of just putting the cat scratchers on it
