You can find a used 600 at any scrap yard, eBay, these classifieds. But you still have 10,000 on the rest of the chassis. It's gonna nickle and dime you from here out. Part it out and pick up something newer.
I'd rebuild it. It ain't worth squat the way it is. In all reality the seasons toast. If you're looking to rebuild it yourself it would give you some summer snowmobile garage time. If it was mine, after I rebuilt it I'd keep it around as a backup/friend sled. And look into a newer used sled.
I feel like I am in a similar situation. 2010 800 Ptek, still running with 8000 miles on it.
Sled runs great. have not checked compression, but it switches to reverse with no issues. Put a track on it two years ago that only had 1500 miles on it. Just bought a clutch rebuild kit as all I have done to date is clean the clutches.
I have chosen REBUILD for your post and for my own sled. Figure I can rebuild the motor for around $1000 myself, with new crank and pistons. Sell it an I get ~$4000, maybe. Can't go buy a 2013 800 etec with Rmotion for the sell + rebuild value and I can't see buying something newer without making the leap to a 13 model. Even if I stuck another $1000 into things like shock rebuild, new boggie wheels, bushings, etc., I am still money ahead of trying to replace it. So, it is cheaper to keep what I have and rebuild it.
Guess it is also an easier decision since this is the sled my son drives. :cool_old:
Mine is a 2015 800x renegade. Gotta save cash for my upgrade in 2 years.
Do u love the sled? Rebuild it after finding out why it went down.( leak test first)
Want money to put towards a new sled? Part it out. A friend that had a zx go down three years ago was gonna rebuild and sell it. Made 1400$ more selling the part then if he had spent 1400$ to fix the motor and sellit it running for for 3000$
My 800 went down last weekend and it's not worth it to fix it as I want a 1200. So I'm parting it out
