98 zr600 good buy?

i have a lead from a friend on a 98 arctic cat zr600 that is in ok shape that needs some clutch work, front suspension work and a right front under hood panel, he said he want $400 for it, the seats in good shape i guess, and the track is studded and in good shape, i dont know how many miles are on it, but overall needs some love and i would probably fix it, ride it, sell it, but never owned one of these sleds and dont know if there even worth it..

i appreciate any feed back.

For that price you should already have it.
If you find that it will cost too much to fix up, you can more than recoup your cost by parting it out. [a running engine is worth more than $400]

$400... Not a question, I'd be on that in a heartbeat, assuming it isn't completely destroyed.

Any clutch with 30mm short taper will fit on that.

Clutches are expensive to replace, but you can usually rebuild them for a lot less. You can't lose money on it if you buy it for $400... you'd easily make 2x that (probably more like 4-6x that) if you parted it out.
