Ok

So I gave up on the idea of converting my Stratos to get reverse. I am now looking at a 1990 or 1991 GLX 500 liquid cooled.

It seems to have everything I want. But I know nothing about this motor. Can anyone tell me if these nachines are any good? Also he is looking for $1000. for it. It looks mint. Would that be a fair price?

Thanks

Bill

Personnaly,i would stay away from '90 GLX.They had lot of problems.Overheating,wiring,etc.They had recalls on it.Engine was a 462 LC .Were no good in deep snow. And 1000.00 on it,its too high.But one positive thing,reverse would fit on your Stratos,not sure about the same drive axle length.

Wow dodged another bullet. It would be great if you guys would let me impose on you to recommend what might be a good sled for me.

I am 66 years old and partially disabled (arthritis in my spine) and plan to ride trails 100% of the time. We are right next to the Trans Canada Trail.

I really need a reliable machine with electric start and reverse. I have about $1000. to spend. Many thanks for your responses. I really value and appreciate them.
