2002 skidoo summit 800 151" with reverse

Any issues with this sled? It's female adult ridden 2500 miles on it and there wanting $950 for it. It looks really good in the pictures like brand new. What are the pros and cons on this sled? If there is a ton of issues with it then I don't want to waste my time with compression test and checking it over. Thanks in advance

I have a 2002 Summit 670 with reverse. I don't use it. The idea of making a 16 year old engine reverse itself makes me shiver. I tilt the bed and slide it off the back. Easy-peasy lemon squeezy.

My 2002 800 Summit was REALLY hard to start (800CC is lot for pull start). I manufactured an intake resonator that would accommodate fuel jets from a primer. 1-2 pumps and 2 pulls and she starts right up! I was really proud of the assembly and took some pictures. I can share if you like.


I also did a top-end rebuild, new fuel pump and new reed valves. It was really intimidating at first, but I watched a few videos and took my time. Shout out AKBear for his patience, kindness and guidance.

$950 is a pretty decent deal really.

As long as the supports and tunnel are straight (no accidents), the motor would not cost much to rebuild if there really is anything wrong with it.

I'd go for it.

Just rebuilt a 670 HO and spent just under $400. Tough motor to find parts for (HO = High Output = Higher Compression)

I ended up buying it for less the people were moving to a state without a lot of snow and needed it gone. They were the third owners and they had no idea if any work was done to it but after a closer look at the very least the top end has been replaced if not the whole motor. Runs great. Starts on the first pull. Has after market simmons ski's. Starts easier than my 780 Mach Z. Looking forward to giving it a ride this winter. Thanks for the info

Congrats!


If it's got RER (electronic reverse) I would not be concerned about using it. A 2-stroke engine doesn't really care which direction the crankshaft is turning, it will work fine either way. Sometimes the electronics can become a problem, but the engine doesn't care.


It is pretty freaky to get used to, watching the engine stall, then start back running backwards to go in reverse. I still marvel at that on my three Polaris sleds.
