Those miles on that bottom end make me nervous. I know the earlier ptek motors had crank bearing issues and from what I understand by 2010 they resolved all these issues? What kind of longevity are people getting out these later pteks? I'd like to get something that I can ride the remainder of the season and then come spring I'm not opposed to tearing it down and freshening up the bottom end for peace of mind in the future.
I'm looking at getting something cheap because winters are a hit or miss around here and I dont really have any interest in making the long haul up north just to go ride trails so I dont really want to spend the money on a high dollar sled. I'd rather buy something cheap so I dont mind if it sits until we get good snow. I have access to a decent amount of riding from my brothers house, a few very large fields, small trail networks, and a large pond as long as the ice is good.
Just curious what you guys thoughts are on this.
