    2000 Polaris pro 785 question

    Im looking into buying a 2000 Polaris pro 785, the guy wants about 2700 but I might could talk Him down a little. It's completely stock other than the motor was replaced 2 years ago. Not sure how many hours it has on it. I'm really new to all of this and probably know about nothing so I don't wanna get screwed. Any advice? Is this a reasonable price. Thanks in advance

    Welcome to the forum..
    take it for a nice long full throttle ride with a gps in your pocket..above 60mph(on gps-not the dream-o-meter display) buy it...It looks very clean

    You should consider this: http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/show...4-2000-Pro-785

    It has every go fast aftermarket mod you can think of. And cheaper too.

    not sure if it is common practice, however I notice in the picture the exhaust valve part is installed upside down, normally the exhaust valve springs are visible from above. i would imagine this would make it a pain to adjust the valves. With that said, if those are installed incorrectly, who knows what else is??

    Texasaggies12 - It’s a nice looking Pro however the price is a bit high.. I would offer him no more than $1800 for it... I just talked to a guy here in New York that bought 2 brand new 2000 Pro's for 5k last week from a dealership in PA.

    Here is what I see from your pictures..

    1) Pipe water lines have been replaced
    2) Siphon tube is wrapped around the waterbox
    3) Steering cable is mis routed - It should be under the motor
    4) As noted the exhaust valves cable holders are installed up side down.

    As I said it’s a nice machine..

    Polarisracer166, sorry to use this post but I sent you a PM and your inbox will not receive anymore. I was the one looking at the hoods for the PRO and you also mentioned sending out a strap for my exhaust collector under the hood. thanks

    I would just offer him $1800 for it.. The market for a used Pro 785 is not to great now..
