I'm looking for a Mach z 1000. Are there any problems I should know about before hand. I'm from Ontario and they are going for around $5500 to $7000 depending on year and milage. I'm willing to travel if its worth the money. I've heard about the clutch dust being sucked into the air box but nothing else but good milage. I noticed maybe 25% of the mach's on Kijiji have rebuilt motors Why. Anyone getting rid of one. Maybe an X package low miles ?
thanks in advance

Mine went down at 5,000 due to the belt dust.

I now have 12,000 miles and running strong.....

No better sled to run in QC.


Just my 2 cents.

Cheers!

i am also thinking about buying a 05-07 mach....i ride trails about 60% of the time and we have nice wide fast trails like quebec but i also like to play in the powder so i will be prolly puting a 1" and a 1/4 track, just wondering if its an okay powder sled, right now with my 00 yami 600 with a inch and a 1/4 i do okay in the deep stuff.
the only thing im woried about is the realabilty of this big twinn...

one of the biggest problems with the 1000 twin is the air box. it is very poorly sealed and sucks in a ton of belt dust. installing filters eliminates this

We have an 06 with 6000 miles, clutched, piped and it hauls ass takes a good workign sled to beat it even our two xp 800 wont beat it in 660 it comes off the line before them almost everytime amazing for the how big and heavy they are but if clucthed well they are hard to beat, mind you it does not have a big top end because of our set up, but you can also make them run big numbers on the lake if your running long distances. As far as reliable we had an 05 and 07, took the motor on the 07 and the 05 no major problems just couldnt get it to run good so we kept the 06, if you ride big, fast trails you will love this sled, if you want to ditch bang it is not the sled for that, to heavy and big to try and man handle
