I am just starting to get into sleds, I have been looking around for a little while. I found a 97 MXZ 583 that caught my eye. What are everybodies opinions on this sled? Power.. jumping...trail... racing? How is the engine in general?

Just looking for a little bit of feed back.

Also what would be a reasonable price for one? thanks.

I just bought a 97 583 mxz. It was around $1,700. I don't know much about them myself so I hope I love it.

True on the triple. You can tell a big difference in power from a twin to a triple though. But when it comes to repair thers alot of difference too. Except from my track wrecking the back half i had been fortunate so far.

i have had 2 MXZ's from 1997. i cant say enough about them. bought brand new and tinkered a little with clutching and gearing, one of the best sleds i have ever owned, not to mention one of the best looking sleds on the trails today even. i will always have a place for the 97 MXZ in my garage. when the ZX chassis came out in 99, the 97 would still run with the 600. great running sleds.
