hi

I am looking at a 2000 Arctic-cat Thundercat 1000. The sled is stock with no scrapes or dents. 1400 miles. WHat would be a good price, and a great price. Thanks for the help.

I checked on kelly blue book web site, it says $3,730 for trade in meaning thats what u would expect on average by dealer prices, now if u were buying one from dealers, private sales, etc it would be $5,410 so its somewhere in between $3,730 to $5,410 so I would go for around 5k. hope this helps for ya! welcome to the forum as well!

You had better check on insurance before you buy a big sled like a thundercat, here in ontario the companies won't insure them.

Insurance on my 2000 T-cat is only $24 a month. Thats for a 10K replacement value and 300K in property damage.
I wouldn't sell mine for less than 5k but then I've spent 2k on it in the last 6 months. Depending on your riding style it is a great sled. immense potential if you like tinkering with things.
I know that my local dealer just sold a brand new 2001 for around 5K so I wouldn't go any higher than that depending on what aftermarket goodies have been added.

No Insurance?
In Canada?
Stay off our trails.
The STOP program in Ontario loves guys with no insurance.
So does the 'government' (and I use that term loosely). Max Fine in Ontario. $5000. And (the best part) a license suspension, the length of which is at the discretion of the Judge.
You don't get a 'ticket', you get a summons to appear in criminal court, this is not a highway traffic act offence.

I live int he the B.C. rockies, insurance is optional and there is no licence program, so there is no licence to suspend. We do not have the trails systems that you do, our trails only go for a couple of Km's to get to the open alpine. But I will look at the cost of insurance and then decide.

in the alpine we get lots and on the forestry roads, which we use to get the the alpine, there is usually 7- 12 feet. And i just bought the sled for 3650USD. sweet deal

Your saying that you do not need PL/PD insurance in BC?

No insurance at all? That sounds questionable.
Even if we didn't have a trail system, we still need insurance for motor-vehicles (ie sleds, atvs, tractors, etc) that are used off private property.

you don't have to have a licence, or insurance, but there is a regestration program with sticker ID numbers for the side of your sled.

that sounds alot like what we have waaaaaay over here in NH, but if you dont have a driving liscence (under 16) you have to attend a safety course yo ride on your own, if your 16+ you must have a valid ( not suspended) drivers liscence.. if you are caught doin something stupid, then they can suspend your drivers liscence. all we need is to be member of a club, and have a registration sticker
