I saw this for sale on craigslist and wanted to get opinions on this deal. I kinda thinking more could go wrong down the line. What does everyone else think?


1996 polaris xcr600sp. sled needs a new head on one cylinder everything eles is good to go. 4000 miles fresh crankshaft seals carbs cleaned new throttle cable. coolent was mixed wrong and froze causing one of the heads to crack. it has triple carbs and pipes. 500 firm wont take anylower. studded track and it has reverse. black in collor with blue hood vents looks very nice

If it cracked the head, who's to say anything else isn't cracked or damaged from the bad coolant?
triple carbs? nothing special about that... and triple pipes were stock, so that's nothing special either.
But I would still buy it haha -- I buy anything if I'll make a worthwhile profit on it.

well thats what i was thinking the jugs could be cracked or warped and the pistons might have alot of play in there now.

ya buy it and part it, sell seat and hood for a good 200 bucks, track for 125, suspension for 100 bucks and they the misc parts and you will still make money.

The reverse kit will bring $200 easy, do some math and break it down, make a mock list of parts from that sled, put fair prices on them and add it all up, you will be very surprised at what the GRAND TOTAL comes out to be, I made some pretty good money off parting some sleds last year and will be back at it again this coming season.

ok, but i still say part it, sell the parts in the summer, then buy like a decent sled in early fall like a 2000 xcsp or sno pro.

Thats not a good deal at all! My brother bought a PERFECT running 96 XCR 600 SP for 500 bucks. It had nothing wrong with it either! He sold just the engine for 550, and the chassis for 300. Dont buy it for that price!
