    Looking at a 96 XP...need some input

    Hey, lookin at a 96 XP, and it needs a new fuel gauge and he says it idles low. Anyone have any suggestions to how much I would be looking to spend in repairs? He says it might be something with the carbs?

    You'll need to clean and possibly rebuild carbs, then replace all fuel lines.

    $$$ will depend on if you do the work or someone else does.

    that all depends if you want to put a new engine in it. it only takes a minute to smoke a piston or two. its not that hard to change out the lines. it just takes about 30 bucks for 1/4 rubber lines, and about +/-$100 bucks for rebuild kits. trust me, its cheaper than putting a motor in(+/- $1200). LISTEN to SS! He knows these machines better than anyone.

    ok. We offered the guy $1500 for the ski and the brand new trailor and I think hes gonna bite it. He said it might need like a carb adjustment or something like that.
