6k when I sold mine.. Guy who bought it popped the top and said cylinders were still cross hatched. Compression was good. All depends how you take care of it.

Never had a Firecat, but put over 10,000 miles on two Cat two strokes without ever any engine problems. If it still has good compression and is running well, leave it alone.

My F6 has over 7200 on it still strong as ever. No intentions of touching it. Very common to see these go 10K plus without a hitch.

Makes me curious what the highest mileage sled is out there?

Beware of the wiseco and spi!! Jmho!! Will run into longevity problems! Nothing beats stock oem replacement unless anybody has some high milage spi or wisecos? Over 3000 miles anyways!

Maybe Cat claims that for the Firecat engines, but I never saw that on any other Cat manual. 5000 miles would mean some people would have to do a topend every year up here.

I got 5500 miles on mine now...didnt change the plugs until last summer; and only because i had the exhaust off and figured, why not? I average 1000 miles per season and the trails are right in my back yard...i go fishing every weekend and go for rides sometimes after work....to be able to put 5k miles on in one season is just insane...lol Thats A LOT of ridding! heck it would cost at least 2500 just in gas...not to mention good synthetic 2 stroke oil which our sleds LOVE....plus meals....lol if i was rich and didnt have to work, i think 5K miles in one season would be reachable....sadly, i have not won the lottery yet...hopefully soon

Me three.....

However, I found I can save money by not actually buying the lottery tickets. I figure that's only going to reduce my chances of winning it by just a little bit more anyway. ;)

Nightfire: how was it your fault? forgot about the oil jug?

Muckers: was it just a tired worn out motor that finally let go or did something fail?

10,000 on my 06 when I traded it. I bought it in 08 with almost 6500 miles. I put the rest of the miles on it in about 3 weeks. It still hauled ass
