Default Buying a M8000 with higher miles?

Have been looking for M8000s with around 1000 miles and Iíve found some for the $4500-$6000 mark. Recently found a 14í with 2100 miles that I could pick up for the low $3k.

Other than wear items like shocks and bushing, should I be concerned about buying one with 2000+ miles. What compression should I be seeing in the cylinders? Are these M8000s the same 800 motors that were in the 2010-2011 sleds that run 3000-4000 miles before top ends are needed?

My plan is to ride approx 750 miles a year and would keep it for 1-2 years, so not sure how much the sled would be worth in a year or two with 3500 miles or so

Default M8000...

A '14 for 3k is good. 2000 miles, eng. should be fine but the drive clutch is about at the end of its service life (2500 if your lucky) so plan on a new clutch and lookit over well to check for chassis damage but for that price...

^^^ this.
the top end should be done IMO around 3K to 3500 fresh stock pistons.
the primary at 2k should be changed.
compression one each gauge will be different if I remember some place around 135. you can get a good look at the pistons very easy with the hood off just take the 2x 10 mm bolts holding the power valves in and just pull the valve out. this will give you a good look at the front and top of the piston. look at the piston rings at the locations the edges of the valve would meet some times the do meet when they shouldn't!

Owner said he did a compression test and he came up with 130 psi.

I looked into the primary and a new oem one is $350 and a rebuild kit is $190. $350 isnít bad, I assume changing the primary would be pretty easy?

You will need special tools to rebuild it, just buy the uncalibrated new one for $350. Then new weights and a spring which you can do yourself.

A better option but more money is upgrading to the '16+ Team primary.

It is the same engine from 2010-17

The guy says it has 2100 miles on it. he says he is only going to put maybe 750 miles per year and says he is only going to ride it for a year or two so what is the need to rebuild the engine right now or ever before he re-sells it? pay 350.00 for a clutch put a set of wts. and a spring in it and ride...

It is the same engine from 2010-17

^^ this. If you buy a new one for the 15 and back you can re use the weights if they are in good shape. replace the spring for sure. If you buy one for the 16 you will need new weights and spring as they are different. And if you get it for the 16 up order the weights and spring for the 19 calibration for your altitude it was better dialed in then the 16 all be it for a different motor still the same HP. I wouldn't worry about the 5 psi difference it is within 10 psi of the other side.
same motor from 10 to 17.

I think you should be able to sell that sled in two years for very close to what you paid for it as long as it stays in good shape 2014's are selling here for between 52-6500$ currently
