It's one of those sleds that the guy bought thinking it would be fun to ride with a friend but that friend started a business and then the sled owner started a business and they rarely got out. Hasn't had a current permit on it since 2015. It's a Canadian sled so I'm not sure if I can switch to miles from kilometers? Sled came with a Cobra track that looks mint with no studs. Was the Cobra an option on them back then? Maybe only in Canada?

Cobra track with standard on the SP version in 2008

"Std gauge": Push the left button and hold it down for more than 2 seconds and it changes from mph to km/h or km/h to mph.

"Deluxe gauge": Push the upper button and hold it down for more than 2 seconds and it changes from mph to km/h or km/h to mph.

The 08 F10 is one heck of a nice sled outta the box.

Does it actual display somewhere on the deluxe gauge if itís mph or km/h? I have a pic of it while running but I donít see any indication which itís displaying.

Are the boots hard to see without major disassembly?

Not so bad to see most of the lower side of at least one with a mirror.

I gotta imagine its miles, but if it says 870 km you're even better off since that's only 540 miles. If I was in your shoes, I would really want to see the sled in person. At that low miles for the year I'd want to make sure there wasn't a speedo swap. Theres no way that I know of to cross reference the OEM speedo with the one that's on it (maybe someone has better info).



So, things I'd look for, assuming that it's a Canadian sled therefore ridden in good conditions:


Carbides: Could be well worn but the host bar should be intact.
Slides: Should likely not even be close to needing replacement.
Primary Clutch: Moveable sheave should have minimal play around the bushing and spyder buttons.
Belt: look for a used but operational belt on the pulleys. A mint, unused spare belt somehwere on the sled is a good sign.
Brake pads: Should have very minimal wear. This is a good one to check because it's typically very easy to physically measure pad material and cross reference to OEM replacement spec. Got a used sled claiming 500-800 miles that already needs new pads? Highly suspect.


These are the types of things to look for to be sure you're getting what they're advertising. Ask the seller if you see something suspicious. Maybe he has a good answer.


Either sled fundamentally should treat you well. If the miles truely are that low, get the F10 and deal with the corrosion from sitting, possible gummed up fuel components, and cracked intake boots. Good luck!

Saw the F10 sled today itís actually 1389 miles but itís super clean. Boots look good, clutches are clean, sliders still look like new and the track looks good. Engine area is pretty clean along with the tunnel and belly pan so I would say the miles are legit. Suspension all looks good, no damage on any of the wheels and it runs good. Unloaded it in my garage a few hours ago. Thanks for all the tips guys.
zr sled head and Premium like this.

Congrats on the new sled!
