    Any time you pick up a project like that plan for a entire new motor at worst and decide if it is worth it. Also take into consideration the cost of fixing whatever cause the problem in the first place wether it be fuel or a air leak, odds are is something else is wrong as a healthy engine will not cook just 1 cylinder. It does look to have potential though.

    I think its too much for a ski with too many unknowns. I'm thinking of selling my xpl with many spare parts and extras inc. a trailer for around 1k, to give you an idea.

    I'd say 300-500 is more like it. You can find them running for 1500.-2000. & it's big risk. You could easily end up with more than it's worth invested.

    750 would be a good deal with a trailer. If the motor needs a full rebuild, you can figure 1000 there. Is it carbed or injected?

    Mine did, fried the PTO. Who knows why though, it was sitting for several years when I bought it and I had never messed with one before, probably tuned the carb wrong or something either way like everyone said, I wouldnt go over $800 on the deal. I put down $750 for mine with a nice trailer and now im in it for $1850. Of course I didnt have to completely rebuild motor when it blew but I felt better that way.

    And even if you have 1850 in it when its all done, where are you going to find a good ski for that kind of money???? So who cares if its actually worth less than that. Its only worth less than that if you sell it. Try to buy a ski for 1850 and see what you get..........They all need work when you get them no matter what. Unless someone were to buy my SL 900. All the work has been done on that one already.
