Default Kind of got myself into a dilema

Well as all of you guys know I have been saving up to build or buy a WC triple. Well so far I have done pretty well on the saving money.

Well here is the delima, I just got off the phone with my brother, I knew he had been kinda wanting to sell his SRX for awhile now. Well he just told me he would sell it to me for what I have saved up in the WC fund.

Its an 01 SRX, SLP powder pros, 1.5" camo intense track, adjustable transfer rods, variflow, Hauck silencer and has 3500-4000 miles. What would you guyes expect to pay for something like this.

I am having a hard time deciding if I should blow the WC fund on it or keep saving.

Good shape? I'd say that would be worth at least $2500 and all the way up to $3500 or so during the winter.

I would rate it a 8 out of ten, just a few little cosemetic things is all. Nothing huge or nothing anyone that didnt know the sled would notice. My brother is anal about taking care of his stuff.

Sounds like a nice sled. How much? I just sold my 2002 Viper ER that is MINT for $3k. It has 4600 miles and precision skis. Granted the guy knows nothing about sleds and is shipping it to Russia... but I had bites.

Hmm.. I dont know anytihng about that sled, but hey you got a real nice sled you just built, ride that thing while your building your water craft, i would say stick with your WC build plan.

But if its a steal, kinda hard to pass up on something like that, again i know nothing about that sled so i have no opinion on that.

If you dont mind asking, how much you got saved for it?

Maybe buy it, ride it for a year or maybe not at all, and sell it and then go with your WC.

Could you buy it and make money on the deal? Would your brother care if you did that? Maybe like Westman said.... buy it, ride it, and then sell it. Just don't wreck it LOL.

Ya i think thats a good idea, buy it and ride it for a little while saving up some more for the build, then sell it off after a year or just whenever and get the money back or make some money on it for your build. Sounds like a plan to me

Like Olaf said hog, what would you use it for? Is there a reason you are wanting another sled? Is it for riding trails? I need more info!

I would ride it of course. You guys dont realize I live about 200 miles from the nearest groomed trail. I just ride wherever I want to, when we get snow. I want the sled because I have loved it from day one and wouldnt want to see it go anywhere else.

Is there a reason you would ride it over your mod though Well get it if you love it, and if it doesnt work out I guarantee you can make money on it come snowmobile season. That what I think bud.

I think you already made up your mind Tim!
I would buy the sled and set it up for trail, this way you can keep your other sled set up for field and lake racing plus you will always have a second sled for the GF/Wife/Kids or Friend to ride with you, or even for the odd Slednutz that comes over the border to visit this year!!!

P.S. $2500-$3000 not a penny more! If it is from your brother you should get a discount! $2000 would be fair.

I think I gave up on building a 1200WC







Now i'm just gonna use the 700 parts I have to make a 1050:D

But if you like the sled and he is trying to sell it then why not just go for it?

I was reading your post on the fanatics, and really I wonder why anybody asks advice over there anymore.

I truly do, its sad.

I am in no rush, I have a week to think about it and decide. I think I am leaning towards buying the SRX though. I really cant pass it up for the price I can get it at.

How long have you been saving up for?
The reason I ask is you can buy the sled now and start saving up for the WC for next year. You cant use the WC in the winter anyways.
No peer pressure here to buy the sled, it's only a snowmobile forum! LOL

I guess I can't understand why you would want that over your mod sled? Is there something wrong with the mod sled we don't know about? Worried about the reliability?

Way off, she is a pig. 522lbs



Not worried about the mod at all, just always like this sled. Although I do admit it would be nice to just jump on a sled once in awhile if I want to ride a 100+ mile day and not have to worrying about mixing 110/92/Klotz.
