1990 Ski Doo Safari 440 2UP Need Advice Please!

hello new to the forum, im looking at buying a 1990 skidoo safari 440 2 up, never seen the machine it will be about a 3 hour trip to get it, never seen a skidoo safari before and could sure use some advice or comments on it before i drive that far, its a older gent that has it told me its in great shape has 1600 miles on it, what i will be using it for is ice fishing, trail riding, going into camp, etc if anyone can help would be great wondering about dependability, how sled goes in deep snow etc, thanks again everyone. kris

I have a 92 Safari. It is bulletproof but heavy. Great for pulling stuff on a packed trail/lake. Not real great in the powder do to the weight. Look it over and if it's in good shape and the price is right grab it. It will make a good ice fishing, cabin, trail machine.

My buddy has a 91 2up Safari. I believe his is a 340 though. Real nice riding sled. Starts easy and runs great. It'll do about 55-60 on the trails. Maybe a bit faster on ice.

Dependability-wise, we've ridden about 200 miles this year and his hasn't had a bit of trouble.

We've never really been in alot of deep snow, but where we have to cross ditches it seems to do alright.

thanks guys for the info i called the guy back today he gave me this number 365300243 said it was the serial number, he said the sled is blue, said it is a 447 probably a 440 tho, anyone happen to have a pic of this model sled? he said he would take 600.00 for it, told me he is 67 years old and its alittle to much to get unstuck because it is so heavy, but 1600 miles does not seem bad and he said its in great shape, was hoping it would do good in powder but seems like it maybe to big. kid sure is hyped over it. anymore advice would be great. thanks kris

No, he's probably correct on the engine size. Now that I think about it, my buddy's sled is a 377cc and it's a '94 ,not a '91. His is blue too - probably looks identical to the one you're getting. My buddy and I are going riding tonight, I could post a pic tomorrow if you want.

If you imagine this in blue - it looks just like my buddy's '94

According to the AK mining VIN decoder it is a 1991 Safari LXE. Mine is a 92 LCE. I think the E stands for electric start. Do a google image search for a picture
