Well, since you're in Canada and I'm in the US it's kinda like comparing apples to oranges. Check out my Dock Holiday project thread...I picked up a nice "97 SLTX with a broken connecting rod for $350.00.
"blown head", whatever that means to the seller, means "rebuild " to me. If I can't hear it run I consider it a parts ski until I know better.
To answer your question, In my area $500.00 would be top dollar.

That's way to much...a 2001 Virage TX with a bad motor only goes for around $1,200 US. I would say maybe $750-$800 US with a double trailer.

If it's that far away then I would forget it. It will cost you almost $200 in gas roundtrip alone. So unless you can get it for like $500 US then I would say kiss it goodbye.

Blown head??? What's that??!!!!!
Piston, maybe crank, possibly new dome needed.....
There's definately a head problem, only it's NOT the ski!!!!!

Don't worry, I am not getting the ski. Guy wants $2000 for it and won't budge....convinced he can fix it for $400....and then he wants $3000 for it!!! I wasn't gonna go over $500 because it would cost me another $200 in gas to pick it up! I need to find better deals closer...like the one I bought, my SL650 was only a couple hundred, and it has been a fun project so far.

jkindt . is that the guy in regina ?? if so he lives 2 blocks from me , seen him on the lake with this machine this year and he bought it off a buddy for 2000, with 207 hrs on it . saw him drive it on his trailer and move the truck 2 ft forward , he had to be going 30 mph !! total retard, told me he could do 60 , and couldn't even keep up to my 98 , let alone the virage !!
total parts ski !!! and even then maybe for 800 bucks , just because the trailer is worth 300 !!
