1. Stay in school!
2. Get good grades!
3. Go to college!
4. Get a job!
5. Then go to the bank, I'm sure they'll help you.

At least thats what I did !!!

Legal age is 18 to have your name on a finance contract.

Sorry man, but the legal age is 18 to enter into a contract. If the parental unit nixes a co-sign, then there isn't much you can do except wait and save your bux.

I gotta agree, when I was 16 I didn't have a machine in the same league as your mxz600. By the way, what is it that you want to get, isn't the MXZ a pretty nice sled?

Ya, my MXZ is a GREAT sled, its just that the front suspension has to be re-built every 700 miles or so. (which is every week basically) So I want another sled to keep riding during the down time. All my money from the summer is gone........ Ive gotta job now, but doesnt pay nearly as good :(

Not to get off-topic here, but every 700 miles for front-end rebuild??? Doo guys, that can't be right, can it??? I think something's wrong there s/c.

If he has the Penski's on front they may require it. But stock shocke deffinetly need rebuilt like that if you are extremely hard on them like most young guys are. A shock and clutch's life are soley dependant apon the riders use and abuse apon it.

I no longer have the stock HPG's on. Ive got FOX clickers on the front end now. Ive heard they need to be rebuilt QUITE often :( Ive got penskes on the back, which dont need to be rebuilt for a long long time :) I think what im going to do is buy some X springs for the shocks upfront, and have the HPG's revalved stiff as hell, so when I need to rebuild my FOX ill throw the HPG on. :D

Wish i had a sled like that when i was your age. Mine was a 1974 yammaha SL338F, anyway spend the extra money on the springs or buy another pair of shocks the same as the ones you already have if you rebuild them yourself. You will still enjoy the sport without the payment. ;)

MAYBE YOU SHOULD GROW UP A LITTLE AND QUIT CRYING. I MEAN COME ON YOUR SLED IS WAY BETTER THEN MINE. YOU SHOULD LEARN TO BE HAPPY WITH WHAT YOU HAVE ... ANYWAY PRETTY IMPRESIVE THAT YOU PAY FOR YOUR OWN CAR, YOUR INSURANCE , GAS AND YOUR SLED, PLUS SLED INSURANCE !!!!! PLUS ALL THE MAINTENCE... WOW WISH I HAD A JOB LIKE YOU WHEN I WAS 16. :doh:

I lobster for during april-september. sometimes october. My dad does it year round, but Ive got my own boat, and I do it full time in the summer. Now I work at my sled dealer w/ the mechanic during some of the winter. But this summer was kinda half #####, it was my first year, so it took me a while to get started. But I do pay for everything I have.
