you should be fine. yamaha does recommend a top end rebuild at 3000, but nobody does it. like erik said, do a comp test. make sure and check everthing else out like the skid components, sliders etc.

Yup like others said, check comp. and if its 115 or over, dont touch it.. You'll easily get another season or 2 out of it... Nice lookin sled, you paid a fair price for it to

4600 isn't too much, but it will be nearing a top end rebuild.
Generally, the easier to pull a snowmobile, the lower the compression. The harder the pull, the more pressure the engine has as you turn it over. But in your case, you're probably fine.
You still got a great sled, but I would've done a compression test before I bought it.

Well, do a compression test. If you were tired on the second pull I'd say you're ready to go. Just for comparison purposes, do the 02 as well.
1000 is a great deal and I wish you the best of luck.

Pretty good price. A lot of people like to freshen the top end up but i say if it runs good, leave it. My brother bought his 01 xc600 with 6500 miles on it, never rebuilt, put over a thousand on last season, and it was still running perfect with great compression. Them yamahas are reliable as he!! and are awesome sleds!

most the yamahas were known for the easy pull of the recoil, so you cant neccessarily judge the compression by that, unlike other brand sleds.
