I found 2 2007 skidoo Rev 800's and the guy said he would sell them for a package deal of 7,000. He said the motors are great condition brand new tracks and they have serviced properly. I was wondering if this model of sled was good and reliable and how good the deal is.

Bad deal...You should give me the name and address so I can give the guy a piece of my mind. Seriously, if you can swing it, I'd be on that deal like a hobo on a ham sandwich!

Thanks guys I knew this was one $%^& of a deal. I just wanted another opinion. How are the rotax 800 motors. I know a guy who has the skidoo 1000 and he has put 2 motors in it in the past 2 years, but i dont know how well he took care of it.

They are not bad engines, proper upkeep is a must. Dootalk is a good source for info, I'm a member there and everyone has been really good in helping me getting answers.

My dad sold his 07' Blizzard 800 Ptek for $4300 when he was DESPERATE for money. His original asking price was $6000.

The 1000's are entirely different ( Even a different chassis ).

The 800 Ptek was a great, powerful, reliable motor. I've seen 2 problems with reliability on them. The first one is the needle in the carb is not adjustable, so it must be shimmed. A lot of dealers will do it for you for the price of a carb cleaning. Chances are it may have already been done. The second one is, when the rider is not careful, they die. They have a decent low-mid range, and up top they have incredible power and torque.

When my dad was debating between 2 and 4-stroke, he decided to sell his Rx-1 that he had already put an IQ skid in, upgraded the front shocks to Ryde FX shocks, raised the seat a little, put a clutch kit on it and then did some other work here and there. His first ride on the Rev he hated it. After he got the suspension dialed in, and we got a little more snow, he couldn't have been happier. He liked the positioning, the power, and the fact that at startup it didn't smoke as bad as his 4-stroke. Yes, 4-strokes are actually dirtier than you think. If you dont believe me, start a cold 4-stroke sled with a piece of paper a few inches from the exhaust, and then after a couple minutes, rev it up a few times then look at the paper.

The Rev 800 also has the SC-4 skid which is a great suspension.

If you search for it, we did a write up on the installation, but people kept flogging the topic until it got locked.

I'll pm with pictures.
