Hey folks,
My buddy is looking at a 2002 mxz 500 sport (may actually be just an mx) I don't know if it's actually called a sport but it has a the sport suspension i guess. The seller is asking 3200. It has 2200 miles on it and it is well maintained/garaged etc. Just writing on his behalf and am wondering if this was a good model/motor. What's the sport suspension like?? Also wondering if the price is too high. Any info is much appreciated...thanks in advance

A buddy of mine has an 02 mxz 500 liquid cooled sled like the one you describe and he finds it great, the only problem is that the sled is a pig on gas. There's a good few ski-doo's around here with the 500 l/c motor in it and they can't seem to kill the things. Hope this little tid-bit of info helps your buddy with his decision.

I own a 2002 mxz 600 and a 2003 mxz 500, as far as fuel goes they are within ounces of each other when we run them together. These are great sleds no doubt about it. The 500 tops out at around 100mph, 600 at about 110 mph , best numbers in good conditions. I bought the 500 rer adrenaline Feb.2005 for $3200.00 US with BEST full warranty until march 2007 and it had 1,300 miles. This was a steal at the time. I would say this sled today would easily sell for $3600.00 US. The sled you are looking at seems to be priced ok for the year, good luck to your friend.
