Sold my 2004 XLT 1200
I finally sold my 2004 XLT 1200 that I bought new in 2005 and used till 2011 , it had 400+ hours on it, It blew an engine in July 2011 and engine was heavily damaged,engine case had a hole it it,bent crankshaft and one cylinder and housing destroyed. I sold the ski with the engine and all other parts included with an old trailer for $1500 cash,did I sell it too cheap or did I get a good deal and whould of I gotten more if I parted it out? The guy I sold it to is going to rebuild it and use it again so I feel beter about that than selling to someone who whould rip apart my great first ski that I had so much history with.

I now have a 2012 FX SHO in all black color, I even mention it in my signature, I bought it new in August of last year,I have 33.5 hours on it now. My 2004 XLT had a hull that was in quite a good condition as I kept it in a garage,the bottom hull did have a decent amount of scratches though and the front storage basket is cracked and it had 420+ hours on it and I never rebuilt the carbs on it so Im not sure what kind of condition they are in they might need to be rebuilt too. A good bonus for me is the guy that bought it is going to restore it and promised to let me ride my old ski again once he fixes it.
