I'm in the market for a used sled but I'm not quite sure what to look for.
I'm limited to around $1200, I would guess that will put me into the 85-
89 range. I need to get somthing that is good on the trails that we have
here in western Mass., is reliable, has a ton of spare parts around and
can carry my girlfriend on the odd occasion.
People are telling me to look at the Indys, but I have'nt seen one for
under $1800 that was in any shape to ride. Everyone says to stay away from
the Cats ( although I have seen a few in my price range).. The Ski Doos'
have been reccommened by a couple of folks ( because the engines are "
bullet proof "). The only ones I've seen advertised ( in my price range )
are the Safaris and Stratos.
What I would like to have is something in the 400cc to 500cc range, fan
cooled, does not need to go 100mph, won't get stuck in 10" of wet slushy
snow. and it must be RELIABLE... ( I've had to walk out at night more that
once, and it is not fun. By the way, I'll never buy a Moto-ski Sonic
So any thoughts? what would you good folks recommend for a good used sled
