No problem, I'm sure some people have one on here and they will chime in durability and any other concerns you might have.

The engine mount breaks. This causes the drive belt to break prematurely. Source- I have a 2007 XP & Polaris won't admit to this problem.

I know Polaris is bad with transmissions. The forks inside don't hold up very well. I use to own one. Lasted a little over year before the transmission went out and I didn't even run it hard or put it through to much. Just normal stuff. The engine also vibrates a lot causing the mounts to break as the above poster mentioned. That's my experience anyway. I have a few buddies who have had the same issues.

yeah, I'd stay away from it. The transmissions are a PITA to work on. If you pay someone to do it it'll be pretty expensive. I'd keep looking around and bit the bullet to spend more on something nicer.
