    01 yamaha 1200 xlt---opinions

    I found a 2001 Yamaha 1200 XLT for $700 without a trailer. The seller informed me that the ski had been sitting for two years and only needed a new battery to start, but when I brought one it didn't. He seemed surprised which makes me think that its something minor why it won't start. Check out the pictures and let me know how much you think I would have to put into it and if you think I'm getting a good deal?? I need a new project.

    You gonna have to rebuild the carbs drain the fuel and change the fuel filter. Then when you get it running pray the compression is good.

    Carb rebuild alone will be around 250 if all else is good in them. Thats also if you pull them and send them out your self.

    Carbs are a pain to do on these skis but you can do a compression check b4 you do the carbs and then go from there. Carb kits are around $30 each.

    Thanks for everyones help, but I'm going to pass on this one. The ski just needs too much to repair. I went back to look at it I realized a few more problems. The hull had some major chips out of the bottom and most of the clear coat was off. Also the seats were pretty faded which wouldn't help for just parting the ski out. I really wanted this ski just because I like the look of this model.
