Hi
I'm new here and I have an option to buy a '99 500 sportsman. 1700 miles with 332 hours on it. Maxxis tires (lots of life)/ new stater/serviced regularly with older female driver. One owner. Any advice? they are asking $2800.
I'm not the mechanical type but I probably can put another $1000 into it if need be. Is it worth the $ and headache?
this is to be for my wife. I have an '07 500 HO X2 and love it. we do medium to heavy trail rock/dirt riding with some occasional mud and stream/small river crossings.
heard there were issues with the cams and u joint drive-shafts.
thanks in advance

I have 2 of that same year and they are great. 1700 miles is not terrible, they will go that many more easily.

Just change all the fluids and maybe the belt and you will be good to go for a while, also, I would hit all the grease fittings too.
