Default Questions about 2014 m8000 from a Polaris guy

Hey there, I'm in need of a cheap new sled to ride for probably just one year (one year of college left) and i found a pretty good deal on a 2014 cat. Sled has 1400 miles and has slp pipe and can, 3" powerclaw, mvm belt drive, and 2016 front end on it for $3800.

I might go look at it this weekend so I'm wondering, what are the main things to look out for in these sleds when buying used?

Also, I've ridden these sleds before, and coming from a 2012 Polaris i had 2 complaints; they weren't super easy to sidehill and felt kinda heavy, and the clutch engagement was rough.

Does the narrow front end help quite a bit on these sleds? Only one I've ridden with the 36" was an alpha so of course it was easier, but i don't have experience with the proclimb with the narrow front end.

And finally, is there a good clutch setup out there that can smooth out the clutch engagement? I remember reading one time that the Suzuki doesn't like low clutch engagement very well, but can it be made more manageable at least?

Thanks for any feedback.

The 2016+ front end completely changes how it sidehills you can't even compare it to a prior M with the old front geometry. If its in decent shape I would say that's a good sled for the money.

It looks to be in pretty good shape, although from the pics it does look like it's been stored outside a bit. I'll see when i look at it in person

Well the guy finally replied to me and turns out he doesn't have the title for it so I'm gonna pass on this one. I know too many people who have been screwed with title issues so I'm not gonna take the chance
