dealer of the year has nothing to do with the amount of units sold or size of it. Most have to do with percentage of sales increase. If it was volume and size country cat would have been dealer of the year for almost 10 years but that is not the case as they sell around 300 sleds a year and their dealer ship is built in the family's farm.

Brake caliper bolts coming loose
Airbox strap tabs snapping off, (requires a new $130 airbox)
Cracking coolant bottles
electric starter motor sounding like rocks are in it so bad some dealers suggest getting a pull start rope kit (E-start does not have a recoil starter)

All seems to be the first batch, which is good my buds will be the first batch. Heres the best juicy part, they traded there brand new , just purchased 130 mile Enduros back because there Enduro's wouldn't stop overheating. One other guy in the group (money no object) got one because my bud got one. He never started his. Something happened to the ECU, never put a mile on it. And he flew back from an Australian trip to go sledding. Ended up just going to bars with his Escalade.
Now thats good stuff!
so they have fixed nothing since 2009? The skidoo 800 my dad had all of those issues. Selling it was the only fix. He saved so much money just on belts getting rid of it lol

Ok you can add cracked cast aluminum bulkheads to that list. also the entire tunnel is the heat exchanger now and thats only .040 inch thick (1mm) thats how they solved the heat problem. Let the customer worry about stones and rocks going through it.

I rode a 850 last weekend. Its an awesome motor. Very fast and quick. It was faster than my stock turbo 9000. They might be having a few problems now but it was nice enough that thinking of one for 2018

At the finns in skanee last night. Illinois rider broke his 850 bulkhead after 2 days riding. They TOTALED IT!!! He bought a brand new ZR 8000 to finish his trip, no more poo for him. I loved it.

If your gonna be dumb, you gotta be tough!!!

There is a pic on HCS of the front of one of these gems totally separated from the rest of the sled. Cast bulkheads are not a good idea. Same with having the heat exchanger as being built into the tunnel. Wow! Motor is solid though I will say. Rest of the sled is typical Doo!
