Default Late 90s VMAX 600

Friend of mine has a VMAX 600 & said they would sell if for $500 to me. Runs and everything works great. I have a 98 VMAX 500 xtc, works great except it is extremely heavy. Was wondering if the 600 would be a good buy for the price?

$500 and it runs great and in reasonable shape? That seems like a fine deal to me.

One day of snowmobile rental is usually a fair amount over $100.

That sounds like a great deal as long as the compression is good. Triple or twin? How many miles? I have owned several Vmax sleds and currently have a 99 600 triple and 96 600XT. Both very reliable. Check the basics like track, skis, compression, fuel lines and clutches. Clean the carbs and go riding without breaking the bank. The Yamaha sleds are heavy but very dependable.

Devin, if you buy that, and it's a pogo stick twin, I have a set of PSI twin pipes that you need. (not really)) I'm in NY too. Mine was a '96
