    how much is it worth: 97 slx pro785?

    the heads and cylinders are gone, pump assy and drive shaft are gone. condition of the case and crank shaft are unknown. all electrical is there the carbs and intake are there. its being sold as a hull w/ the parts that are left. its about 4 hrs away, and i've only seen 2 pics of the outside of the boat. the hull looks to be in fair shape. can i get a rough estimate of what its worth?
    thanks guys.

    I would say not a whole lot. I might pay $400-800 for it.

    Not sure it would even be worth it. You would end up spending at least a grand in parts just to get it running. Thats IF the crank and cases are any good. Sitting with the cylinders off, the case needs torn apart and new seals and the crank definately needs checked out. Then you have to buy new cylinders, head, pistons, pump assy. Rebuild the carbs and replace all lines.

    Are all the exhaust components there??

    It could become a very pricey project quickly. I would personally wait for a running one to come up for sale within your price range.

    Just my 2c.

    Thanks guys.
    Lugs, thats it. What do you know about the boat? I'm looking at using the carbs and the cdi on my 780. Would the crank allow me to stroke the 780?
    Also could use the hull for another project.
    Thanks again

    For the carbs and CDI it would definately be worth the $200. I would have those carbs rebuilt before you through them on though.

    If my memory serves me right, I think the 785 is a stroked out 750. Same bore, same cylinder height, just a shorter piston head, and a longer through. I'm not sure if the crank would be useable for any other application. But then again, where theres a will............. Hell it could just be blowby out my a**
