I just bought a 2000 SXR 700 triple (or SX700R, whatever you want to call it), and I like it a lot. Got it for $1800. It's studded, has a fairly new track, has heated grips and came with a great cover. 5800 miles but he took great care of it; no signs of ever being rolled, and the engine is beautiful.
Here's my dilemma: 2 weeks later, my uncle offered me a great deal on a 2003 Skidoo MXZ 600 REV. 329 miles
, no cover or studs, $2500. I took it; now I have two sleds.
Which would you keep??? the 700 is great; but the mxz is too. I could get more money for the mxz; and it has reverse, and starts a little easier. From what I've heard, the 700 will get better gas mileage. While the 700 has more miles, I've heard they're bulletproof, especially in the slightly tuned-down SX version (not to be confused with the SRX). Opinions? Thanks!
P.S. some pictures of the SXR:
These are my first sleds; and after just beating around the yard a bit today, it looks like my 'dilemma' is a pretty good one to be in. They both run great! I was mostly nervous about the SXR, which I bought before we had snow.
