    If you don’t have anything constructive to say I suggest you keep it to yourself next time! It’s a 24 year old sled that was pretty good in it’s time. I had a 96 that did alright by me. It’s still goin today!

    It’s all in the presentation. He’s a fairly new member, he bought a new sled and seemed pretty excited about his find. Your “presentation of the sleds drawbacks were a bit harsh and not very representative of TY. I hope my “presentation” comes across clear. Thanks.

    you are right ! Let me rephrase my factual opinion. The clutching is terrible, the gas milage is horrible , and it handles and rides worse than any sled made in that era! Other than that its a beautiful sled! I hope my presentation is more to your liking now super1c. thank you

    I also had 1 of these sleds. For it's time I though it was a good sled. For sure that was a sharp looking sled. have a good time with it.

    Congrats on your new sled! Ignore the negative comments in this thread. I have a 17 year old Venture and I do WAY more seasonal mileage then 75% of all my friends and co workers with new or newer style snowmobiles.....

    I loved my 95 Vmax600. Handles great, good power very comfortable. I ran Many 750 mile weekends on it. I bought it new and sold it with 8k miles on it. Great sled.

    The only thing that is a concern is the range if you go on long rides in remote areas due to mpg. I always thought that they were some of the best looking sleds ever. Yours looks great.

    Really... This will stop after you take a step back my friend. This site is far above this and you know better, right?
