Wow, I have 250 miles this season. just under 6k miles total on the sled (2006 that I bought this season). How many pistons and cylinder linings have you gone through?

Congratulations, I can relate to your passion to ride. My numbers are a bit more but it took a extra year. How is the 800 engine holding up? Same top end? If so does it rattle?

ring your sled every 4000 mi pistons at 8 thou and dont spank it cold it will last a long time more parts than engine parts are needed if you use your big head not your small head

That's impressive... like the others, I would like to know what maintenance and/or failures you've encountered. 1300+ on my 2017. My 2012 had nearly 6,700 when I traded. Never touched the engine.

These newer engines don't need rings at 4,000 miles, if they are trail-ridden. But rings and pistons at around 10k is a good idea. Less miles if it's a mountain sled (but in this case, it's not).

Going easy on it when cold is always good advice, regardless of what year it was made.

ya it's cheap insurance to ring em every 4 to 6 tho but peeps can do what they like my buds go 10,000 and send the engine out for full rebuild i do em myself but not cranks or cyl plating i send that out, cold seizure is a bad thing ! nice mellow warm up helps pistons live. hey im no pro just been wrenchin for 35 years on all sorts of stuff "cant fix a swing in a birdcage" but love to fix stuff it's in the blood. im sure you know the feeling thanks ,mike .the young ones get em started and beat em up then say why did it brake

...haven't touched the engine yet except for the stator...but just about everything else has been replaced...clutches, chaincase and internals, jackshaft and bearings, drive shaft/drivers and bearings, tri-hub, track, shocks and two starter drives

Wow I thought I had it bad with my high milage machine. For others to take note, the failed parts that we have in common is chaincase and internals, jackshaft and bearings. I may be due for a track and clutch at season end (20k). Also at season end I will replace (not repacked) skid frame bearings.
