Ok first off i have a totalled Polaris 1988 Indy 400, but it has a lot of good parts on it that i would like to get another Indy 400 so i could keep my old one for parts.

Heres what i found, 1990 Indy 400, 3500miles, new carbides, cover. Small cracks in hood otherwise excellent condition. Reliable. Got him down to $1000 but Kelly Blue book says $800

IS THIS A GOOD BUY??? 6hour drive from me.

I can't afford a new one plus i already have a good parts sled. Doing local riding only.

Kelly blue book is a good reference but what realy matters is what is it worth to you. I personally would not pay that much for a sled that is almost 15 years old. However, I do not have a parts sled, I do more that local riding, and I currently have a sled that runs. Point is the final price will depend on the cercomstances of the buyer and seller. You do have some leverage here. The sled is old, the hood is damaged, his potential buyer is six hours away so he may not have a local buyer at that price. Also, it can be difficult some times to unload a used sled especially when the economy is in the tank. It's a buyers market so use this leverage to your advantage. Point out the sleds faults and mention the KBB price. Push for delivery. He will if he wants the cash. If he won't budge, ice him for a while. It's a gamble but that brings us back to what's it worth to you and how bad do you want it. Hope this helps.

Hey kblazk, I was wondering what happened to the new SS or RMK you were interested in. There is a Polaris dealer here in Ashtabula, about 3 hours from you, that has a few new 02 500's he's selling at or near cost. He's a friend of mine and I dont mind contacting him for you if you don't want to call long distance or whatever. I'm not sure what the rules are regarding leaving third person name and number so I left it out. If there is no problem with this I will be glad to leave that information for you.
