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.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
