I am looking at a 1995 Polaris RXL Touring sled.  650 EFI, 2300 miles,
good condition, asking price is 3400.  No studs, track is clean.

Is this a good buy or not?  I have heard a little about staying away
from
Polaris EFI's.  Truth or fiction?  If EFI's are troublesome, how much is

a carb conversion and is it worth it?

Any thoughts, comments, advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

David

Truth

Why look into a conversion kit?  Why not just find another sled?

I have that very sled in my garage (now my girlfriends sled) and I am removing
the EFI and converting it.  I bought if from a friends uncle and did not know a
lot about it's history, only that it didn't run.  After tearing it down, the
engine was crapped out.  I replaced a piston and mag bearing.  Soon it will be
back together. I tried to sell it last year as an EFI and a couple guys that
were interested loved the EFI.   I paid 800 for it with a crapped out engine.  
It is a very clean machine and I'd is probably worth $2,500 on a good day.  It
is not worth $3,400 regardless of the condition.

Here in Minnesota it would be worth no more than $2000 on a good day.

New Fully Charged Battery is your best insurance.  You will find this
same discussion in earlier posts.  
A weak battery will not allow the EFI to adjust as often and as
quickly as necessary and lead to problems.
