    I just had the oil pump replaced on my sled cause it was leaking, well the price of that oil pump definitely paid for the extra warranty I bought when I got my sled.
    Warranty is a big selling feature for new and used sleds.
    Not all parts are the same....and warranty is not just for engine, your post proves that already.

    I bought a in season sled and the extra two years of warranty was cheap and a no brainer. The updated rave valve seals seem to be holding on, and not leaking. Other than these two leaks, my sleds been amazing.

    You are correct tho, Aside from some obvious differences between the two expert package sled.
    Dropping the warranty in half compared to a NA sled does make for a interesting conversation.

    Wasn't trying to turn anything into a pissing match about kilometers. Just that it is only half the warranty with out boosting power above the stock number seems weird to me.

    Wasn't starting a pissing match about km. Question is why cut warranty in half when it is not boosted above stock HP. Why? The answer is not that you think it is the best sled You have had.....what is it?

    Sales will suffer.
    Im guessing that quite a few that have snow checked will back out with this thriving economy
    If you get a FREE sled then the limited warranty and paying bills is of no concern lol
    A couple sleds

    I personally think the motor will last longer than the NA sled. You wonít be wide open all the time reving the bag off it. The fix to make a a 800 dragon to last was a turbo. The extra fuel and oil made it last.
    No more snow mud now please!
