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.

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff

      They should not be  going  back to area waters or traded to  other dnr  districts they should go right back into LAKE VERMILLION !!!  Don't ya think its time the dnr   should start to listen  to the paying public, us ! [trappers, hunters,  fisherpeople ,boaters and snowmobilers ]
