I am thinking of picking up a 02 Polaris XCSP 700 with 3,500kms on it any thing I should be looking at closely or pay special attention to? :dunno:
Thanks for all your help in advance...:thumbsup:

My buddy has that sled and has put 7000 miles on it with no major problems. I am a ski doo guy but it sounds like a good sled for the right price.

Yes I am in Kingston. The sled in question is past westport. I hope its not the same one. I have not gone to see it yet but if it is then it will save me a trip.

oh man sorry it is the same one! it is really nice and clean! but the engine runs like crap and it has a bad knocking sound in the waterpump oil pump area when i got out of the car i was going to buy it on site it is the nicest one i have seen in a long time it has mech reverse and a lot of metal on the dipstick for the chaincase! i mean a lot i ended up getting an 04 700 xc near denbigh instead. i felt somthing was fishy when i called him he was asking 3700 and dropped to 3400 over the phone before i even looked at it! if you don't mind doing some work and can get it cheap enough go for it iwas not going to pay that kind of cash for a sled with an unknown problem. cheers

Man, 2200 miles aint spit for one of these engines, maybe just a bad waterpump bearing?+a chaincase with reverse will have fileings if its never been changed out.If you can ride it you might find out more? are you a wrench with sleds?
see how far you can move him down, in my neck of the states that sled would go for about 1800.00 if it needed a little work. if the sled itself is in GREAT condition,It might be worth a second look.:dunno:

ya he is looking for $3,500.
FYI: Everything tends to be more expensive up here.
Must be because of our great health care system? :dunno:

Do the 700 have a cam chain tensioner on that side.
I believe it needs maintance at 2,500 miles?
Could it be the chain loose?
