First snowmobile

I am looking to buy my first snowmobile and just wanted to get a few things to look at other than miles. I found a 98 Ski Doo Mxz 583 Rave that has had the engine rebuilt last year. Is it a bad idea to buy one with a rebuilt engine and is a mxz 583 a good one? Any thoughts would be great

no you wioudl be fine buying a rebuilt one, twostrokes need to be rebuilt every so often depends on riding style and the sled, but seeing that its rebuilt be sure to check over the sled ofr problems other then the motor (drivetrain etc) and check the compressions to see the the rings seated properly when rebuilt

and the 583 are great sleds

What kind of riding are you doing? If you're just ditch banging and riding farm fields then look for something quick and light, not necessarily "fast". I have a 95 XLT 600 triple that's a fast sled but heavy. Great on smooth flat surfaces but not so great in deeper stuff that is not "groomed". To me something like a Ski-Doo MXZ 583 is just the ticket for that kind or riding. If you're riding somewhere smooth and flat then something like the 670 would probably do the trick.

Of these three, always the newest one as it will generally have the better ride.

If you want a rocket, the Wildcat 650.

definately the doo, $1000 is a good deal. and a recent rebuild is good, that way you dont have to rebuild it yourself!
