Used sled prices have been crazy for a while now but I saw this earlier on Facebook and my jaw dropped.... I don't think he will get that price but I bet he still gets way more than its worth

My old sled is a carb. Over 8000 miles (I forget exactly but it's up there) the studs are worn down pretty good, and every other season she needs a battery. But still has all her compression and runs mint.

If that sled was started regularly, has no old gas, probably a decent sled. Looks like it was stored inside and that makes a big difference.

But $8200 heck no. Like you said it still is the age it is. I'm of the mind it's always better for mechanical things to get run instead of sitting.

Agreed, that sled has basically sat for 10 years. Depending where it sat and if it was greased and fogged before sitting would make a big difference overall. If its in good shape which it looks like it is I could see it going for like 6500 in todays market but what he's asking is insane. I bet we will see a lot more sleds priced like this one in the coming months.

Makes me want to put my '06 Fusion up for sale. Had to rebuild the motor a few years ago. I could probably recoup a good portion of that.

I won't sell. I lobbied my h not to sell his backup sled either. That's just asking for trouble.

Omg if his #1 ride goes down and he can't get parts...bad day for me. When he's angry it affects everyone around him. He's one of those guys that will brood and make sure we all know how miserable he is. He doesn't handle disappointment well. Better to have the old iron around. And I know he hates riding my sleds.

i had a 2012 mxz 600x with 500 miles that I sold for $5900 last year. It is what the market will pay. Price trailers now. Hybrids are 7400+! Friend just bought one. Used clamshells $3500. I saw that XRS too.

When I see the posts from people new to the sport, looking at overpriced ten year old sleds with over 5,000 miles on them, I cringe. They should save themselves the aggravation and just wait to get into the sport until next year.

Yeah, but look at all the fun they'd be missing having to constantly repair these 10 year old sleds....nothing will build character quicker.

There's a "learning curve" to be sure. Especially if someone has zero mechanical apptitude.

Anyone who buys that will be best served to tear the motor out of it an tear it down, service the crank with isoflex and depending on mileage pop some new pistons in it. All new gaskets and seals. And not for that price either. Friend of mine bought a rev that sat most of it's life.. seized the crank in 3 rides. Crank was dry as a bone.
