Bought this sled from a dealer just a few weeks ago as a match to another sled that I had bought from a friend... I thought I was incredibly lucky to find a matching sled

After owning the sled for only a week, driving it less than an hour, it caught fire and had to be extinguished by the fire department. Said dealer is doing little to help

Some of the guys whom I was sledding with that weekend said that the motor should still be good so I'm just trying to recoup some of my loss, insurance company won't cover it since I didn't have a policy written only for the sled itself and snowmobiles are exempt from my homeowners apparently

The track is toast, seat is somewhat melted on the right hand side of it, the motor should still be good, the skis are still in good condition and the suspension is still good

Most of the fire was contained to the hood and plastic shrouding around the handlebars and gas tank.
