Tomorrow I'm going to look at a 1997 XC600. Hes asking $4000 for it and
sounds pretty firm. He said it has about 900 miles on it, ski skins,
carbide runners and a couple other extras (not studded). Does this sound
like a fair price?

I also called about a 1998 XLT Limited (1400 miles). He is also asking
$4000 for it. And thats all I know about it.

I haven't decided on which sled is better (or if I want either). If
anyone has any ideas, please email me.

Thanks - Derek

I think that is a pretty good price for the XC.  I bought a 97 this year
and I paid 4700 for it.  It only had 26 miles on it, so it was basically
new.  I have had some problems with major flooding with it, but I took it
to the dealer and they said that year they put cheap needles and seats in
it.  So I am having new ones put in right now.  But the sled really goes.
I have a 93 XLT and it is like night and day.  Just my 2 cents.  Also,
since there are hardly any miles they are going to try and run it through
warrenty.

The latest Clymer Snowmobile Blue Book shows a resale value on that sled of
$4170.00.  $4000.00 seems reasonable considering low miles and extras.

The latest Clymer Blue Book lists that one at $4310.00.

I bought it last night for $3700. It has a skid plate, ski skins,
windshield bag, spare belt, cover, carbide runners (worn off) and
matching helmet. Only thing is it isn't studded :(

196 or 144?

How much hp does this sled have? And finally, is there any way to
improve the gas mileage?

Manufacturers do not supply HP figures like they did in the past because
Insurance companies would jump all over the premiums on higher HP sleds.

Best way to improve fuel economy is learn to control your thumb.

You make it sound like we can only get hp numbers from the mfc's
themselves.
