its not even an Ultra...just the hoodBakernator said:The miles are attractive, but the price seams a little high. I don't know about out in MI, but here in the northeast Ultra's are going for like 550-900 in good shape. I just picked one up but that is ultra clean (pun intended) but needs one cyl gone through. Make sure to check the reed boots too. I would say if you could talk him done a c-note or so to go for it. I'm anxious to get some triple pipes on mine after it gets some new rings and go have fun.
I was thinking the same thing about the ride height.bigwedgies said:looks like it sits kinda hi for an extra-10. and in the rear skid theres the extra idler wheel near the rear like on the x-12.
that being said....
i cannot stand when people say....
"thats not worth it cuz i bought a........for whatever price"
just becuase you bought something doesnot create a value for a sled, i bought a 1978 skidoo elite for 150 bucks...running! does that mean anyone who pays anything more for an elite is an idiot, doubt it they go for 3-4000. i just got one hell of a deal from someone who didnt know what they had.
prices on sleds can vary from one state to the next. that seems like a reasonable price to me for that sled, id try and beat him up a lil on the price but, those parts from a running sled will bring that all day long if he ever NEEDED to get his money out of it.
yes im sure theres TONS of better deals to be found.
Oops, I just glanced at it quicklike and saw the pink head color and didn't notice it was a monoblock. I also didn't see the side pads on the seat like an XCR usually has. Should have payed a little more attention.dodger said:its not even an Ultra...just the hood
That hood is off a 96 Ultra, 4" gauges.madcow said:heavy? that sled was one of the lightest until the iq body lineup.
weak triple? there are more 10k mile xlt's out there then polaris even made of dragon 800's.
97 ultra's came with the 5" guage so that would go with the ultra hood.
850 is a fair price if it has good compression and runs nice.
