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.

    • I know I didn't pay $28 each for the trolley. Maybe half that. On the lake so I can't look up where I got them right this second.    Menards has the strut channel and a bunch of accessories. 
    • Strut is $15 per 10' at Menards. I've bought the trolleys from Mcmaster Carr before. Looks like they are $25 each on there for the doubles.
    • Dave -   I will go back to your original question and skip over everything after that.    You provided an explanation yourself.  In this case was the cross a representation of Jesus dying?  Or was it simply a representation of a soldier dying in battle.  I would say that a cross in a veteran's memorial traditionally represents the second scenario.     I would agree, to me this display is not religious.  Of course, as a Christian, I may be biased in my view.     I can't answer that for you.  However, we seem to live in a country where being offended can be considered a lifestyle.     We do have a separation of church and state.  The writers of the Federalist Papers wanted to make sure that our government did not have a government sponsored church like the Church of England.  I would not be happy with my government telling me how to worship.  So, I am happy that there is a separation of church and state. 
    • How many sleds can "we" get in that new trailer?
    • It's the interwebs. There is someone somewhere telling you what you want to hear no matter what that is.
    • Well how was the ride? I got my enclosed trailer ordered up today and will be here when I get back.
    • And who will decide what is good and what is not good for America? It seems there are opposing views for each perspective.
    • I have never heard this before and It is interesting.
    • There is also a separation of church and state. Put whatever you want on private property but keep religion out of the public arena.   Or are you also against the Texans who passed regulations making Sharia law illegal. Is it OK to have the Koran posted in a public area and to have rag heads praying to Allah in the government buildings?
