Newbie Iowa Whats it worth?

Hey guys been reading through the site past few days trying to decide if I want buy my cousins 2009 xtz 1000. He told me to make an offer on it if I was interested but not sure what a fair price is. It's been sitting about a year he thinks a head gasket went out and now has a rod knock. Could also use tires. He said it still runs but i went over today and battery was dead so also not sure on miles. Hes been the only owner. Any suggestions on a offer would be great. Thanks

well that depends on several things ... you a good wrench ?

unknown issues then a low ball ## is in order , these engines are not cheep to buy and chasing parts is not going to be low $$ either.

if you are not a reasonable wrench and need to farm it out to a shop that labor is in the $100 an hour range give or take on that some are way more.

suggest get a battery and get it started and look into the noises and figure out the carnage before an offer is given .. if that can't happen then the offer goes less the price of a new engine [after finding out what they cost] .. listen to the noise , use a stethoscope and find where it's coming from .. pull the plug and insert a bore scope .. but do figure out what ya have going on.

tires will be anywhere from high $80's to well over $120 each depending on what you get ..

this isn't a real cheep sport , but compared to a rock crawler jeep type rig it way cheeper so it's all relative.

now I didn't give you much help but you need to get your homework done first.

and WELCOME to the house lots of knowledge here and great fellowship to boot ..

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

Welcome to the site, Gary summed it up pretty good. A rod knock in these things means a complete crank, and rods assembly. Pretty steep labor cost involved as you have to completely tear the engine down, and split the bottom case to press the crank out. A good running 09 1000 should be in the 6,000 neighborhood. With this unit the best I'd offer would be 2,000.00 dollars. But that is just me! Stay in touch!

I've rebuilt a few snowmobiles in the past so was hoping to tackle the job myself. I also have a friend thats a mechanic in a powersports shop that can help. I've been thinking around $1500. I'll probably try and get over their this week and throw a battery in it and see how it sounds. Thanks for the help so far

Pretty sure you could part it out and easily make your $1500 back.

That sounds like a good price, I was on PowerSportsNation and they had several prowler 1000 motors in the 2700 dollar range, but these are complete. Good Luck on the Prowler, I really enjoy mine!

Yea I would not even try to fix up and sell a sxs,like RD said everyone wants new or close to it and around here a prowler would not sell,from my dealing and selling quads it needs to be a 2005 or newer and a honda.

Yea I would give 2000 for a 2009 xtz,but the machine in good running condition would be worth around 6 in my area//////my local A/C shop has a 2014 xtz 1000 that has been sitting over there for 1 year now they have it marked down to 12,500 ........and when I picked up my winch fri he said I could have it for 11,900 out the door.
