id be more worried on how it was taken care of then how many miles it has. Bring a compression tester and that will tell you how good of shape the motor is in. I picked up my 98 xc 600 switched to the gen. ll chassis for a grand with 5,900 mi. just a few weeks ago
High mileage, but those 500 motors are bulletproof. Just look it over very well, that's not a bad price for it either. I see guys trying to get $3,000 for 02's and 03's with more miles on them than that.
I have 4 sleds in the garage, one starts 1-2 pulls cold, one starts 1-3 pulls cold, one starts whenever it feels like and one takes 10 plus (89 indy sport). They all start in half a pull warm. It all depends. We have a 00 indy 500 w/ the 488 fuji and its easy to start, im just not sure how a 13 year old would do...
