Default 2010 crossfire 800

Looking for pros and cons on the crossfire. There is one with 4000miles for 3k that I am interested in but am new to the hobby. Any help would be great

2010 and up Suzuki 800's are virtually bullet proof and have excellent power. Only con if it is one, would be the diamond drive gear case. You will find a lot of info on this site about a bearing update, make sure that has been done and make sure oil is changed every 1000 miles or so. Also make sure reeds are in good condition these motors are hard on factory reeds.
I have 4500 plus miles on my 2011 CFR with no troubles. IMO you are getting a great sled for the money.

Current Sled(s): "Agri-vator"

If it's clean, well cared for looking sled, it should be a good one for you. Faster than most new sleds. The updated bearing deal is cheap and easy to do. On a used sled, you would want to change the oil in it right away anyway, and at that point, if you see excessive metallic pieces in the oil, then you can investigate further. Modern sleds actually have more Chaincase issues than those sleds did Gearcase issues , imo.
