my friend has a 2005 ski doo summit 1000 x it is in great condition and he wants to trade me for my ducati 900s monster i am not that into sleds but i figure if i am going to own one and ride it around it might as well be this one. my true intentions would just be to try and trade it off. sleds trade easier here than italian twin sport bikes. he also has a 2008 polaris dragon 800 but not as many people seem to be into them and he would want some cash on that deal i think. as the blue book on it is a more in the $6000 range and the ducati and summit are both in more the $4,500 to $5,000 range. ok guys give me the good the bad and the ugly.

here are a few pictures food for thought.

Nasty sled, 1000 cc, 2 stroke, fuel injected.  Same engine was in my MachZ 1000.  It has insane power, will stand up for 100 yards from a dead stop and keep your arms tight.  They had some fuel pump problems, so if he has this upgraded already you should be all set. If not, you may want to look into one. Other than that, wicked sled.  And just as a reference, the 1000 smoked the crap out of my buddy's Polaris IQ Dragon 800 turbo.  Smoked.

very cool that is exactly what i hear from the guys that have rode both. i also have seen a lot more dragon 800 engines trashed around here. i love polaris but my friends that also love polaris prefer to steer clear of those.

i am trading up eventually i will get something that claudio cannot live without and he will give me back the 525 irs. just kidding another guy i know has a case skidsteer he is willing to trade for the summit 1000 and i could use a skidsteer every day at home and on the job. when i make enough money with the skid steer i will buy another outlaw. i have not owned a 2009+ mxr or s so those are on my list of machines to own. of course i will have to put a few miles on the summit before i trade it off.

The 1000 is a heavy pig. Great power but the weight is ridiculous. I dont know about the dragon engine reliability but I would much rather ride the lighter dragon than the tank.
I was a die hard ski doo guy so I'm not being unfair. I had a 04 and a 05 ski doo but on the lighter Rev platform.
That's a monster power maker, but its still heavy.
Climbing sleds are all about lightweight!

the ski doo claims 528 pounds and the dragon 487 pounds. i have nothing to compare these to as i never owned any real performance sleds.

We dont have much climbs here in Ohio and rarely ride on 12" of fresh powder, so the weight factor does not come into play much.  We ride mostly woods, open runs, and fields.  I terrorize on the MachZ 1000.  It could way 1000 pounds it still hauls complete A$$.  The 800 IQ turbo is not even in the same class in terms of horsepower, acceleration, and top speed. I have had the Mach Z on Lake Chautauqua in NY at 106 mph on GPS and it had about a 1/2" left in the throttle, I didn't want anymore!  The Rush 600 is another one of my favorites and handles much better than the MachZ, but again, it's like comparing a Chevy Cobalt to a Camero.

ok i traded the ducati straight across today for the 1000 highmark. i rode it all over my property today this thing is insane fast. pretty cool who knows i may take it to the mountains this weekend before i trade it off. i have a trade lined up for sunday or next week some time. for a 1500 series case skid steer. it is an old one but has new tires, new drives and new clutches.

here is the highmark 1000 on a trailer in my yard. it had 4,300 miles on it more than i remembered the other polaris sleds he had were under 2,000. it came with a strap on gas can, cover tank bag and 2 spare new $100 belts.

oh yes it is a beast more like 600 pounds the 528 is a dry weight. i weighed it today with a 3/4 tank of fuel and 3/4 tank of oil and it was right at 600 bounced between 598 and 601.

it is huge and long. i rode my little 440 arctic cat right after wards and that is like a mazda miata compared to a top fuel dragster.

i screamed like a girl the first time i punched it and tried to turn while leaning. not only did i pull a wheelie sky high but i almost rolled it in a wheelie. that would have been crappy in the first 50 feet i rode it. it was pretty fun i must admit. i have rode a 800 rmk and a sno pro 440 and they were fast and both competent climbers, but this thing is a whole new animal. i will say bombarbier / canam / rotax makes some wicked horse power machines.

so yes i guess i squealed a little.

i wonder what spindles those guys use. I was willing to bet that the polaris sleds use the same style balljionts as the outlaw and was wondering if a set of outlaw or predator spindles and hubs could be use for wheels.

i remember a few years ago when atlantic polaris was open , i was poking around the back room and Jay and i were talking that the sled ball joints looked the same as the predator. at that time we brained stormed that a sled with predator spindles would be cool for the summer.

Leo if u ride that sled, u will forget about quads. I'm serious, quads are slow turds In comparison . Sleds handle better, better suspension, triple the HP, I SAY NO MORE!

I'd have to almost agree with the d-man.  Hop on a sled, then swap to a quad and it feels horrible for power.  Heck, an old mid 80's 440 was smoking my 850 the other day.  There was snow on the ground, but not enough to completely cover up the brown.  It was a weird handling feeling (probably just different) but I'm guessing with enough time I'd get used to it.  It was a 2006 Ski-Doo 800HO.  Sweet sled.  Stupid fast.  Rocket motors in a quad mean nothing anymore.  I'd go for a sled motor if I were to do it.

2,000 miles is actually alot for a mountain sled.   We would go to the Rockys and ride for 6 days and often only put 400 miles on, but ride ALL day (taking BS breaks of course)   Its just more highmarking and watching your buddy try to beat you, and then going back up to beat his mark!  Then, help your buddy pick up the pieces after his rolls down a couple thousand foot shoot and flies over rocks!   I never knew what "Balls" were, until I COMMITTED to a chute with the smallest sled in our group!  lol  MY buddies said I was nuts for trying it, but I made the little girl climb and crested the top and then cleaned out my shorts.  

Leo, I think I sent you a few sled DVD's, throw them in and see what you gotta do!

oh i watched the one you sent me amazing stuff. nothing i am capable of. i have done a few 2 to 300 foot climbs. it was all the 440 sno pro and 800rmk sleds were capable of. it was also all i was ready for. it was the first time i ever hill climbed a sled. it was a good day there was about 4 feet of fresh powder on the big horns. i am just a beginner and maybe a never was if i make the trade for a skidsteer. plus i still just want to put front tires on it and take it to the dunes.

My first ride was an Arctic Cat sled, the 'Kitty Cat', maybe 50cc?? My grandfather still has that machine and last Christmas I got it running for my 5 year old nephew while visiting in them in NJ. Snowmobiles are awesome in my book. Even better if they're year-round!

Do you have that motor crated up for me yet Leo?

i am sure they will be all kinds of wear parts not meant for sand but i still think it is worth it. with pipe and a few mods 200hp is doable out of these 1000 cc 2 strokes. bone stock it is 170+ hp that is what i need in the sand. if i trade this one for a skid steer i may have to talk my buddy out of one of his polaris dragon 800 machines.
