Price of Used Skidoos??

Post by Ben Bake » Fri, 30 Oct 1998 04:00:00


I was just dropped a line about a 95 touring 380 skidoo with 800 miles,
revers, elec start, and cover for 3000.  Also, this gentleman has a 96
touring 380 with 500 mi, reverse, elec start and cover for 3500.  Does
anyone have any ideas??  Are these sleds dependable and do they handle well
on trails in the woods??  Most of my riding is on farms and trails in
Northwest Pa.  Also, are these good deals??  I am seriously considering one
of them, but I am not sure which one.  Any help would greatly be
appreciated.

Yes they handle well both on open terrain and in very tight trails (even
with a long track).  However, if this touring package has the two up seat
be careful with the weight.  Check your load capacity.  Anything over 250
lbs is pushing it.

I have never heard of anything bad about this model although some people
were disappointed with top end speed (e.g. "i couldn't get it above 70"  -
boo hoo)

They seem  a little pricey to me (especially in US$)  i bought a fully
loaded two year old 583 Grand Touring two years ago with only 1600 miles on
it and cost me $4900 C$ ($3300 US$).

Best of Luck

Another thing Ed just pointed out to me....I weigh about 255 lbs.  Is there
a load capacity on this sled and will the engine support my weight alone
much less with someone else (a lot of my friends are overwieght also----go
figure it must be certain habits we have).  Thanks,

I think the 380 is too small, I'd go with a larger engine.
