I'm currently looking at a 1996 xcr 600 in excellent cond. with triple pipes and approx 2900 mi
how many miles can you expect to get out of it before a rebuild, should I be concerned with engine longevity with aftermarket pipes. what is this sled worth?

When you buy aftermarket pipes, you have to change carb settings to compensate, you can't just bolt on triple pipes and go, that is a sure way to toast the engine.

But, if everything is adjusted accordingly, and the machine only has 2900 miles (supposing the speedo cable has remained attatched since new
) do a compression test, if all cylinders are good, it's probably in good shape, but if the guy who owned it first abused it, it will most likely die sooner. But if it was cared for, it should last a long time (usually around 10,000 miles)
