I am ready to by my new Scrambler, but I have a friedn who is a Polaris dealer out in farm country I went to see. He has a new 2001 Scrambler 4X4 500, never left the showroom, and I did look at it, it hasn't been ridden. Other than a few hoses I'm sure I will have to replace, if he gives me a great deal would this be a good buy? What is the difference with the H/O 500 as the 2002's seem to have, this one doesn't. Is there any true difference? He also has a 2000 trailblazer that is also new that I am thinking about for my wife. Thanks for the input guys.
From about 2000-2001 all the 500's are HO, if you can get a good deal on it, go for it . The newer scramblers don't have a fox rear shock or the aluminum oil cooler, which I think are better than the new ones.
01s and 02s are almost identacal.If you can get a good deal go for it.And you really shouldnt have to even change the hoses unless they look dry rotted.
2002 500 Scrambler-White Bros pipe,HPD airbox/carb mod chain tensenor and shock covers,TEAM roller secondary clutch,custom primary clutching ,WORKS struts,and much more SOLD
2003 330 Trailboss-stock excepet for EPI pink primary spring and Aaen blue secondary spring(gone with wife)
2001 400 Sportsman traded for a CJ5 Jeep
2004 Victory TC Cruiser
1972 FLH Harley (my pride and joy of 20+yrs)
'01 and up go the better brakes. '02 (I think) and up got the plastic oil tank. '03 got blue plastic and a drain plug on the CVT cover. And '04 got the new seat, black plastic, new handle bars, gas gauge, and new rear shock w/o the resiviour. I believe that it also got a redesigned dash. Overall,if you can get an '01 for a good deal I say take it, unless you really want the black
