I found a 1995 Polaris 800 storm that i am interested in buying. It has 2500 miles on it and the guy is asking $800. Is there any known problems to watch out for in these snowmobiles or is this a good deal? The only problem with it is the seat is ripped.
I have this same sled and I love it! Pictures below. I have heard of the middle cylinder going in the older triples but have never had any problems with my engine. The only problem I had was that the water pump went in it and I had to put a new one in it. Mine also has a little more than 8000 miles on it. Other than that, nothing. They are crazy fast too! About 125 mph fast! This sounds like a very good deal to me.
Agreed, 800 bucks is definitely a good deal as long as its in good shape and it runs well. You shouldn't have a problem with this sled if its stock and if its been jetted rich (factory usually jets triples rich anyways).
