SHOULD I BUY IT??? Just went and looked at 2008 Ski-doo 800R MXZ Renegade. 3150 miles. Electric start. Reverse. New skis, new track -1.5 inch lug, 137 inch long track. It may not be what you want, but it IS what I have been looking for. Seat in great condition, everything cosmetically looks good, no cracks, no dents.
This is a two owner sled. The guy who has it for sale said he bought it about 800 miles ago (about two years ago). In the his first year of ownership, the water pump went out and he had it professionally replaced. He had the receipt and it was $1,100 US dollars to repair it.
Took it out for a 10 min test ride. Pulls hard through the throttle. I never went wide open. Didn't need to. Fast, light, corners well. Felt smooth and was all the power I'll ever need.
Got back to his house and was ready to buy. I pulled the spark plugs and noticed that the right plug was more tan then the left plug (clutch side). Both plugs looked dirty, but the clutch side plug was darker and more "dirty". Then the compression test. After 7 pulls each side, the clutch side had at reading of 105 psi and the right side had a reading of 95 psi. I checked it again (both sides) and got the same readings.
Doesn't this seem low? And of course the compression numbers don't match. What does this mean?
If it means a "top end" I don't have the skills to do that myself. What does that cost? I think I can buy it for around $3000.
WHAT SHOULD I DOO??!!??
