1995 Polaris XLT Special

5 posts in this topic

Looking for input.

I just bought a '95 Polaris XLT Special with 5000 miles on it. I got it reasonable and I'm too old to "hot rod" it so it should last me a while. Runs like a Timex watch, and it's a really clean sled. Not a scratch on it. Rebuilt front and rear suspensions, and a real good track with 96 new studs on it.

Any other owners of these out there and what can you tell me about them?

A couple people have told me they are a good sled and the motors are pretty good. I have read of some crank shaft problems on other websites though but not many reports.

Anything I should be aware of? I appreciate your feedback. Thanks!

Big and heavy.. grin.gif I have owned 3 XLT's I had pretty good luck with mine I wouldn't worry to much about the Crank if you had one of the Bad crankshafts she would have let go by now, not a great sled on tight trails but on the straight aways with rough terrain with the Extra 12 suspension it was heaven, nothing like the sound of a triple. grin.gif

Those sleds are bulletproof. I speak for alot of locals here in the home of Polaris when I say that sled, the '93 XLT (and following years) was probably the best thing to come out of the plant. I know of alot of them that were bought by employees and literally rode into the ground and refused to die. You will be very happy with it.

I have a 94 XLT SKS, it has 10,000 miles on it and the clutch springs are starting to go. Other than that the only thing I have done was a new gasket on the chain case, spark plugs and shocks.

      We really need some new leadership handling regulations and a change on who they are obtaining input from. Find me one person that does not believe that Mille Lacs Lake is one of Minnesota's top 5 walleye destinations and yet it has the most screwed up regulations year after year for last 10 years or so.   Catch and release for walleyes? No problem. I can deal with catch and release but these closures I am sick and tired of. Give us back night fishing and surely give us back fall night fishing!   If you want to reduce hooking mortality then it should be done with some common sense regulations and not through closures.  I can't think of another lake that this type of logic of closures is being used to reduce hooking mortality.  Barbless hooks seems to be the most common attempt at other locations. No live bait is another common but more extreme method. Find me 1 person that would disagree with the effectiveness of reducing hooking mortality of these 2 methods. No, surely not is effective as every one sitting at home on their couch or out fishing on another lake.   I almost gave the DNR some credit last spring with the announcement of no live bait. Quite a ballsy move I thought but surely effective but then they caved................   I would like a honest conversation with the state of the walleye population in the lake. It surely has some holes in size structure which we can argue on what is to blame this on but it surely is loaded with walleyes.

      north an hour on monday was about 15 to 20 inches. really weird drilling thru it.

      Nothing open except the river in the LF area. Checked a small lake a few minutes from the house monday and was still 11-13 inches of ice. Was getting very honeycombed and melting quick. I would guess it shouldn't be too much longer if not far south things are opening.
