2004 or 2005 Polaris Trail Touring info?

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
