Default 2013 800 Switchback Pro R for sale question

Have a friend with a 2013 800 Switchback Pro R for sale. It is in excellent condition with several upgrades and runs great. Had a Bikeman upgrade kit put in at 2700 miles for peace of mind and the sled now has 3600 miles on it. He is asking $4,500 for it. Is this sled worth considering or no? Any future problems to look out for? I have read a lot of posts on the 2013 period 800 engines with a lot of positives and negatives.

That's not a terrible price if it is super clean. The 13s had a better ECU than prior years. Thats a great trail sled. The Axys version is better, but the pro r is excellent machine in my opinion. I have a 12 600 pro r switch and love it. I would check the usual stuff when buying a used sled. At that milage a shock rebuild is due.

That's a good price for that, and it has the top end done, so that is good. It's a used snowmobile, anything can happen, but it's a fun sled for sure.
