I'm looking at this 2002 rmk 151, it's studded has 5200 miles, was rebuilt at 4000, I've been told it's bad if it was rebuilt, he wants 1700 for it, is this a good deal, I like the sled but I'm coming off a 2005 600 classic, should I get it ? Does it sound good or bad ?

Welcome
Never understood the Long track with studs?
Why would you want to trade down?
A rebuilt motor with 1000 miles on it is better than without a rebuild!
Every 2 stroke would benefit from freshening pistons after 3500 miles!
Putting pistons and seals in is only a coupla hundred!
I have said many times a piston only cost about the same as a tank of fuel!

I'm with KC. I don't see any RMKs with studs. The studs would have to be so long that the reciprocating mass they create would really cause stress on the track belts. So to prevent that, you would have to have a smaller lug on the long track, which defeats the RMK's purpose, which is to get off in the powder and keep moving.

What engine does the sled have? 700s are better than 800s for long life, and the 600 in that era is pretty much the same engine in your classic... it may not have the power you need to pull the 151" track all that well.

1700 for an 18 year old sled seems a bit high to me...
