    Thoughts on what a 97 Hurricane is worth?

    So I found a 1997 Hurricane for $700 with a trailer that supposedly runs good but sometimes stalls. My understanding is that the ski is in fairly good condition and the trailer is a converted utility trailer with no registration so I'd have to register it as homemade.

    Thoughts on whether it's a good deal or not? How are these skis to ride?

    Working on it now... Ski is ~3 hours away but he'll be an hour and a half tomorrow for the Bills game. May be making an early run out to Buffalo!

    its tough to go wrong at that point, if the MFD workx, worst case scenario you can part it out and at least break even

    I just sold my '97 that was in fairly rough shape on the outside but ran like a champ...with a single trailer for $1100.

    Got it this morning! It was in a little rougher shape than I could tell from the pictures but still not bad. I offered him $500 and he said sure that's fine. Checked piston wash and it looks good, looks like the rear carb is a touch too rich which is ok for now. I'll be running through a few more checks then hopefully a quick water test this afternoon!

    The only thing I didn't like is that he 'deleted' the oil injection by capping the lines and running lines back into the oil tank and making it a loop system. He tells me it's a premix at 35:1 which is on the rich side. He also told me that the oil pumps on the hurricanes is a common issue and that he read it here on greenhulk. I can't find any evidence of that at all though.

    I'll get some pics up later on today of it...
