Decent used sleds need help

Post by John Ga » Mon, 09 Dec 1996 04:00:00


Hello, I'm looking to get an older used sled for anywhere from $500 to
$1500.  I'm particularly interested in older e***rs but have notices
that an 1984, 85 86 phazer can be had for around $1300.  Can anybody
help me with their opinion on the reliability of the phazer, I know
the e***r is ok but the phazer seems that it would be more fun.
Also any other sleds of these years 79-88 that I should pay attention
to.  Thanks..

-John

That's what I'd call a NEW sled!  :-)

John,

I'm not a big Yamaha fan, but they are probably (in general) the most
reliable used sled around.  The Phazer is a good used sled- plenty of
power for most people, dependable, and it handles well.  Actually, for
this reason you will see a lot of women buying these- they are generally
hassle free.  Just ask to make sure no one bored it out or messed with it-
I read a horror story on here about a kid who bought a sled and found out
it was bored and was spending tons of money to try to fix it (some people
don't know what they are doing when it comes to this).

Oh, by the way - my brother owns a 78 e***r 440, and it is a great sled.
 It's fast, dependable ( he doesn't maintain it well but it always seems
to run good!), and takes a beating.

Gary

I good used sled I discovered is '87-'88 Safari 377 I bought 2 of them
this summer.  Been beatin the hell out of them have over 100 on each
of them this season and the only thing I've had to do is put in oil,
gas, and change the spark plugs. Best of all was the price $2200 for
them both!
