i wouldn't recoment the $200 one but in the $900-$1500 for a 1996-99 with low kms is a pretty safe bet.

how many miles does the one that your looking at have?

p.s my 1996 polaris indy 500 goes 80mph

I picked one up here in Colorado
a while back.paid $1900 the sled is spotless no cracks or scratches.
2000 miles on the sled.
Has a 136 track.If you didn't know any better you would think it
is brand new.
It's a 95 perfect for a begginer,or a back up sled.

<<< I bought this one for $600 last winter. Nice looking sled but I've since replaced almost every moving part in the 600 miles I put on it. That includes a new engine also. I've got more money wrapped up in this piece of s**t then I'll ever get back out of it.

The moral of my story is: make sure to take the time to look at everything. Ask tons of questions. don't buy at night or in a dimly lit pole barn. If the guy sounds like a bulls**ter then he usually is. If he says he doesn't know much about it then he was too stupid to maintain it properly.

Not all dealers are bad. I just bought this '96 SKS w/4000 miles that is in excellent condition from a dealer for $1,100. Only thing wrong after riding it is the front shocks are shot. No biggie, just a good excuse to upgrade to some Fox shocks.

My wife, my brother-in-law, and my 2 yr old son took their first drives/rides on a snowmobile ever over Christmas on this machine. They loved it![attachment=54655]

you can probably get it up to 90-95 on a lake with a good base. i got mine up to 95 one day (completely stock).

Dont know where the 500cc got its "Bullet Proof" reputation! Ive personnaly seen dozens blow up. "yes" weve put them in storage with gas in, gas out, added stable.., Have even pickled em,full of oil!!Usually same M.O. leaned out! Was it fuel?or air leak?(seals).Bottom line, not worth fixing! C/M (gone cat!)
