2004 or 2005 Polaris Trail Touring info?

4 posts in this topic

I'm in the process of looking for a different sled. I'm looking at a 2-up sled so my wife and I can do some trail riding as well as use it for pulling my fish house around.

Does anyone here have this sled. If so, what are your thoughts on it. I'm also open to other brands as as well.

What do you think is a good 2-up sled. I'm looking to stay below $4000.

Thanks for any advice.

War Eagle!!!

I have the trail edge touring 05. The suspension on them is incredible. The bad news about this particular model is alot of them up here have blown pistons from overheating. All of them up here that i know of now have a special heat shield (aftermarket) put on over the muffler to keep the heat away from the engine.

I have not had trouble with mine, but once i heard of people starting to blow theirs up, I put the heat shield on the machine to prevent the problem. Mine has 11,000 miles on it, and is running like a champ.

hey Joe, the arctic cat T660 touring sleds make for nice fishing sleds. You can pick up a late model non-turbo for dirt cheap. they are a four stroke, so no smell, quiet, and plenty of torque for luggin around the fish house.

I know it's not a Polaris, but these Cats are nice sleds. If you have any specific questions, drop me an email.

I have a 2003 I picked up last year. I love the thing.

Plenty of seat space for my wife and I when riding two up and yes the suspension is really good.

    • Think im gonna try good old grass clippings since they seem to replenish themselves very rapidly
    • My good buddy from back in SD does fantasy and we have another group we are apart of and he ended up tied for 5th overall last tourney. After day 3 he was in 3rd with the possibility to win it. So close to getting that $2500 basspro card
    • After the cold snap, temps on Trout were back down in the high 40s. Back around 53 now, and should keep warming if the forecast holds. Fish have already moved shallow, bedmaking and piscine lovemaking will follow soon for the brown ones. I am hitting Leech tomorrow...will be interesting to see what water temps are in the protected parts of the bays.
    • Here's some useful information: go shallow, and chuck a swim jig with a paddle tail trailer and set the hook til your arms fall off. Better?
    •   If you like to tinker with guns, you can get a surplus Saiga for a couple hundred bucks.  All sorts of accessories available for these, and they can also be converted to 12 gauge if that's your preference.          
    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation.
