Did anyone snowcheck a Polaris 850?

I just put my order in today! They spin 4-6 gm more weight than the 800 ho. I’ve talked to a couple guys who’ve ridden them. They both said it’s the real deal. Take it for what it’s worth but burandt says the 850 is equivalent to an 800 slp stage 4. Name:  IMG_0341.jpg

Nice choice. The 850 is a refined animal. Best Snowmobile engine I have ever experienced. Couple that with the new RMK chassis and you will be the king of the mountians!

We are going with a couple of Indy XC 129

I know three people that have been on one. Two of them are Polaris “ambassadors”. The other one is a snowmobile guide. You must be an important dude!

Ill let a season or 2 of development happen before buying a new engine from anyone. RMK Axis is far ahead of competition...lets see how the Alpha 9 does, but I suspect it'll be another "flex track" catastrophe!

it makes 10% more than current 800ho so roughly 170hp. the word is it feels like much more because there is much more low and mid range power. the word from my friends is linear, the quote was "it goes from a throttle to a holy f*** lever" that was on an indy xc at sea level. we'll see.
