Default For Sale in MN, 2001 RMK 800 151

I'm just trolling to see if there is any interest out there for this sled. I don't even really have a good idea for a price, so comments on that are just fine. The sled has 2,700 miles or so, but it shows more wear than a trail-ridden sled with those miles would have. It needs nothing to be ridden, but there are issues that need to be addressed:

The track is missing quite a few lugs, and the rods are showing in a couple places.

Skis are showing some wear from riding with broken wear bars.

The steering post has been bent and is getting pretty soft.

Other than that, it is a very good running and reliable sled. It has never fouled a plug and it always starts perfectly. A 2003 Mountain Cat 900 couldn't beat it in multiple hilldrags (ask Mookie and Gerbil), so it isn't a dog or a lemon.

If you have any interest in this sled please contact me. Any comments as to its value will be welcomed in this thread. (Cuzzi will be allowed ONE free pass to say that it is a 'Pooplaris' and worthless, otherwise only somewhat educated guesses as to its value in today's market will be appreciated.) I am looking for an RMK in the Edge chassis, so if anyone knows of one of those for a good deal, please feel free to post that in this thread too.

Here's a couple pictures of the sled:

I would also say 1500. If you got that steering post fixed that would add a few hundred in my opinion.

Seriously Rock, come on. It'll come with a new chromoly steering post from Team PMM aftermarket parts. Since it has never been ridden outside of the mountains, I'll set it up for MN and we'll go to the secret Nashwauk compound and put it through its paces this December. You'll eagerly buy it for a more reasonable price and you'll have time to train for the U.P. trip.

Looks like neither one of those sleds have the issues your does. What good is a track missing a lot of lugs? Take 2500, and subtract the part cost to fix it up and the headache of steering post and track swap and 1500 dollars is looking good if it was mine to sell. Just an honest opinion.

The steering post should be done around thanksgiving. If all goes to plan that will add value, not subtract.

You might be right, Polaris800RMK, and I don't want to disregard your input, but I don't think that those sleds are comparable to mine and they want a lot more. Mine is a snow check 2001 with nice Fox shocks all around. It's a 151 and it has the newer style seat and tank like an Edge instead of the old Indy seat on those others. Also, I think an 800 is worth a bit more than a 500. I think what I'm getting from this discussion is that I should fix the sled up myself and then ask $2500 for it instead of having to advertise it in a distressed condition.

I would highly suggest fixing atleast the steering post and anything fairly small, the track and maybe more if anything is needed, I think you will take quite a bigger loss if you dont do that stuff before selling it, cuz with just the few problems you said, it doesnt sound very appealing, tho its just a few things. Just my thoughts..

my honest opinion i would say the sled is worth around the 1700-1900 range.

Rubi, I'm looking for a new track for my sled. If I run across a good 151 I'll let you know.

Thanks, the 151's seem to be hard to come by for some reason.

Rubi, its getting close to winter. I honestly think you could get 1800-2000 in its present condition. Put it on ebay and watch her fly.

Well, it was ridden in the steep and deep with no problems around April 20th last spring. It isn't a repairable sled by any stretch of the imagination. It still rides just fine. I don't want to be one of those dicks who thinks their junk is worth a fortune, but I do see sleds like it on Craigslist for $3K still. I don't think a track and steering post replacement should cut the asking price in half. I still think Rock should consider this sled. He can ride it beforehand to see if he likes it. Price could be dependant on how many things I replace before he buys it.

A replacement 151 track is going to around $500 or more, dealer is going to get a couple of hours labor for that, and will want you to change out chain case bearings. As for the steeting post, they will a couple of hours there too, lining up the CRC etc. So about a $1000 in parts and labor
