Thats cool man, my dad got me a new one back in 04. I try to let him ride it from time to time. I think he will get himself a new one soon also. As far as mods. I have done a handlebar riser, can, boss seat, and simmons skis. I think those new skis are better than the stockers I had on my 04 though.

Tell your dad to buy you a new Hummer to go along with that 800.

consider yourself a very lucky kid... The only sled my parents bought me was a 1971 arctic cat panther 440 when I was about 6.... Actually they bought it for themselves but I took over at around age 10. LOL...

Your a lucky guy. When I was a kid My parents couldn't afford to pay attention let alone buy me a new sled.
Enjoy it ,but give it chance before you start moddin the crap out of it or you will never know how good it was to start with.

Congratulations

But like everyone said, ride it first. Going from a 500ss to an 800 is a huge jump in power. Get used to the power of the 800 before you mod it. Plus some mods will void your warranty and I'm sure your Dad doesn't want that.

Enjoy

Thats awesome ! Cool Dad. My Uncle bought my cousin 2 brand new 600HO SDI's last year. One for him and one for a friend of his choice whenever he wants to go ride. I guess my name is skip in the family ! Actually, I could use them if I wanted but I have a REV that I paid for myself.

Anthony765 congrats on your new sled.I agree with doo52. Dont do anything with your new sled.My cousin just bought a new 800 and let me tell you that thing flys. I bought a new 600hosdi. We went up to Old Forge N.Y. about a month ago raced on a lake.He blew me away. He read his speedometer at 110 and he weigh about 160. Good luck and ride safe. JDiMaria
