Been through there a few times when I was younger on the snowmobiles. Still got a couple Polaris in damn near mint condition but don't ride anymore due to disabilities. But I keep them in top notch condition due to ya just never know when you will get hit with 30+ inches of snow like we did a couple years ago twice in a 3 week period,lol.
Yeah that is clean for a XLT from back then. Looks to be very well taken care of. Those fox shocks are a big help as well. Have the rear ones rebuilt every couple seasons as they are known to lose their charge over time. I finally upgraded the Fox Shocks from that era on mine to Gen II Xtra-10 Fox Shocks from those first gen fox shocks and what a difference. Also keep SPI Gas shocks spares NIB on hand all the time as those are really nice for the price 60-80 bucks sometimes find them on clearance for 30-40 bucks on ebay.
I have a second headlight w the high beam cut out to allow more air to flow into the enlarged opening on the airbox. It yields an extra couple mpg. Whisper quiet, except when gassing it. Performance module, powder coated oe 18s w Yokohamas, bigger sway bars, bushings off a ctsv, front and rear strut tower bracing allows it to handle as something far lighter than its 4200#. Fresh fluids in all reservoirs,
Black out headlights and tinted to legal in these states. Probably 40# of copper wire and no idea what those subs amps and big ass box weigh but I guess it at 200.
Now having that electrical demon evicted I’m happier than ever w it.
30mpg at 80mph on 87 octane.
I thought about getting vanity plates as BL OUT but I fear ppl would ask “what the hell is blout?”
