My bro-in-low is looking at getting this led -- any thought on it?

The dealer said $,6900.

Anyone have it and like it?

What kind of riding does your bro doo? You can obviously get a a lot of sled for $6900....just make sure it fits how he rides. The GLX is more of a luxury touring sled. It's not going to be set up for hard/fast trail/bump riding.... or ditch banging...as say and MXZ. If he is looking to sit back and enjoy a nice comfortable ride.....then it would be a good sled.

well it will be mostly trail riding with a little ditch banging.

So -- this is not a good price as a holdover with zero miles?

First things first I would assume he is looking at a GTX? I don't know of a GLX in the Skidoo lineup now that I think about it. If so the suspension on that sled is meant for a nice soft ride, and it not meant to ride fast and hard through rougher terrain. It has an air ride suspension in the rear, which most sleds do not have and it's for the soft cushioned ride. Riding in ditches would be fine....but if he is flying over driveways and blasting over drifts at all then the sled may not be the best option for him.

You can find MXZ's out there for a bargain.....either slightly used or a hold over similar to what you describe he looking at. If he is just going to sit down and enjoy the ride with his kids on the back then this sled would be fine, otherwise look into an XP chassis MXZ or maybe even a Renegade (that gets my vote). Also, I think the GSX is set up a little more suspension wise than the GTX.

He decided on that sled and went to the dealer filled out the paperwork and he was going to take it for a test drive at the dealer and it wouldn't start. They repalced the battery and it turned over but no start. In fact no gas smell. They hooked it up to the computer and it said the fuel pump was bad.

They ordered a new fuel pump.

Does this happen? Or is it an omen and he should switch out of that sled?

Thoughts?

    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
