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?

    • I’m in a similar situation right now and I am “freaking out” how did it work out for you what paper work did you file? Who did you reach out to?
    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.
