    Default New 600 e-tec reliability

    Been looking at getting a 2020/21 ski doo 600 e-tec next fall. Have run Yamaha 4 strokes for the last decade. I donít ride a ton just want something to tool around and go out to the fish house. Iím old. Looking at a 137Ē. How are those motors for reliability? Im not very mechanical so fixing issues is not my thing. I worry that it will melt down and then it will cost me bunches to fix. Any insight others can offer?

    600 Etecs are the utmost reliable. Stellar fuel economy!

    Have you looked in to the new 600 efi sports ? Sounds like it may be all you need and a lot less $$$ to boot .

    I have not. How different is it from the Ski Doo 600 e-tec? I like the idea of saving money a lot!

    600 etec could be considered most reliable 2 stroke ever . I have a 2010 that runs as good as the day I bought it new

    That is what I like to hear. I'm leaning toward that sled and I will look at the EFI version as well. I see the EFI is 85 HP vs. the 125 HP of the e-tec. I would guess I would put 300-400 miles a winter at max.
