YEAH, YOURE RIGHT ON THE PRICE I GUESS. I HATE TO DICKER THOUGH. 2500 SEEM FAIR IF IT'S CLEAN AND SOUND? BY THE WAY, HOW'S ROAD RIDING IN COHOES? COME UP MY WAY SOMETIME.

Well,

cant speak for that wxact sled, but i bought my g/f a 96 formula z 583 last summer with 2k miles and paid $1400 it is absolutely flawless only thing it needed was some new studs becuase the carbide tips were worn. seems like a great motor put 400miles on it and no problems yet.

Great sled , does it come w/ cover , studs , reverse ?
The price is ok if the sled is in a good condition. $2500-2800

I bought a 99FZ583 after I graduated from HS and have it still to this day, Ive injected some striods into her,porting head work and custom pipes.

Great sled, vary reliable.

The 583 is argueably the best engine Rotax has built to date. Many of them run past 8000 trouble free miles.

My dad had a 96 STX 583. In 2000, at 21500km, he had to put a lot of money (1200$) in the engine but I can't remember what he did. Then in 2002 he traded the STX (with 33000km) for a new Legend 700.

I have a '99 FZ583 that my wife rides. She will not let anyone near that sled! Good power, decent ride, but most important, no darting on the trails and super dependable. perfect sled for her.

I have a 96 Mxz 583 that I bought new. Today, it has 4000 m on it. It runs absolutely flawless and it can still hang with the MXZ 600s with the rotax series 3 engines.
