I am wondering after a season on your rev sleds, how did you like the sled? The rear of the suspention has been changed for 2004, and I am wondering if there was any problems with the 2003 suspention? What is your opinion of this sled performance wise also? Thanks for your valuable info!

the sleds are awsome. i had no trouble all year. i have a 600ho rev x. the only thing i did was put on the 440 handel bar kit which comes with the 04's. i was also thinking of putting a tunel extention on just for looks.

the only complaint i have is that the 03 suspention on the x is too soft, but this was also soved for the 04's

I'd like to buy a GSX REV with the 600 HO SDI engine. Anyone out there have/tried the 800 SDI engine? Seems like a good alternative to a 4 stroker.

I have an 03 800 sport with about 3300 miles on it and I love it, I haven't had any problems, always runs good whether it's warm or cold (+8to -35)it gets as good gas mileage as any machine I ride with, polaris and doo's 700+800's. The only thing is with the reg. windshield it's cold but I'm going to invest in a high windshield for next year.

I currently own a 99 mxz 600,which I am very happy with,but the rev 600ho interests me because it can be ridden agressively by one rider then easily be converted for two riders quite comfortably I am told.Plus it sounds like the sled really goes,although I have heard it likes its fuel.

Fuel isn't that bad at all. over 100 miles to a tank. some people may think it sucks the fuel because of the fuel gauge, it is inacurate. once you figure it out your good to go the distence. ask around on dootalk.com and see what everyone else is getting

I have not had a chance to goe on the other site x-tream,but I spoke to a owner on friday and he told me about the gauge not being accurate and he ran out of gas after 68 miles.He was not impressed while walking the 3 miles home!Do you know anyone that got the 1+1 seat?And if so how did they like it?
