    Nope, whatever's average or a good deal.  I think a decent sled could be had for under $2000 last time I looked?

    I've been watching prices for over a month now, and they jumped up right before haydays, but have settled back down for now. I don't think snow-fever has hit the general population yet

    That has to be the ugliest xc I have ever seen!
    Watch out for the 02-05 800's very well known for crank failure. Even with the big bearing it can still happen. Just ask me, mine blew up twice, and now I bought a fully built motor that is balanced and blueprinted.

  • I was under the impression that with the bigger bearing and the oiler mod they 800s were just fine.  But I've never owned one, so I'll defer to you.

    The 600s are bulletproof though

    They are if they are done by the right person, indy specialty.  Both the 6-700 are bulletproof.

    I got a f5 arctic cat last year for my first sled (03 had 105 HP, more than most 600's, after 04 they went to diamond drive and lost HP).  The thing is quick, will still do over 90, and is awesome for jumping which is my favorite part of riding.  I would recommend a f5 for your first sled.  I only got 300 miles last year so I think I'm going to run with the 500 for 1 more year before I get a f7.  3000 would be a good price on a f5 with 2500-3500 miles.

    http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/dak/rvs/2591580756.html  Not a bad deal, not great but not bad...

    Thats actually one of the better tripple motors polaris made....better than that mono-block crap the did. That would be a awsome muscle sled

    In all honesty Dan your not going to find anything newer than 2001 and in good condition for under $2000.
    Right now is a great time to shop fir a sled becaue there are so many being listed however it is the wrong time if you have a budget.
    I got lucky 2 years ago when I bought my 2002 XC 700, in the winter for only $2500. Solid runner, great looking, and wicked fun!!!!

    Just my .02

    Back in 06 I mangaed to pick up a 99 zrt 600 with just 1400 miles on it for $1650.  I rode that sled for 3000 miles and it was great till the day she finally popped.  Its crazy how high sled prices have gotten in the last couple seasons.

  • Mostly I think it's because new sleds are so expensive now, more people are hanging on to their older ones which drives up the market.
