Snowmobile burned to the ground ** PLEASE READ!**

Hi, and thank you for checking out my thread. Please read it all I need help. So I had bought a ski doo snowmobile off someone on Craigslist, it was an 05 Mach z 1000 2 stroke, he told us it worked great and there were no problems with it, so we bought it, $4500 cash. Saturday February 23rd my family and I took it to some trails in Cadillac michigan. My 11year old brother and I were riding it for a total of 2 hours that day. The first hour and a half it drove great. at about an hour and 40 minutes the sled seemed to loose power. So we turned back and started to drive towards a shop to get it checked. At about the 2 hour mark my brother hit me and I saw him jump off the sled. I looked over to my right and the whole right half of the sled was covered in flames. I tried to jump off but my foot was locked into its "lock ins" And I couldn't pull it out. After about 10 seconds of struggling I managed to jump of I hit the snow feet first and the sled was still going forward. I looked down and my boot was completely melted. We were going approximately 55 mph when we had to jump, I landed on my feet and my brother on his neck. Both of us are still in pain. The sled just kept burning, to the point where it burned to the ground. I have photo graphic proof and 2 videos. The whole sled burned into a pile of ruble in less than 30 minutes. We have no insurance on the sled and what we would like to know is should/ can we sue the seller of the sled or ski doo? And also what would our reason be for during them? I can send pics or the videos upon request just pm me your email or phone #. If you have no clue as to if I can sue them please don't pm me. I'm super stressed. The point of our trip was to show my brother new things. Now he is terrified of even walking near one. Any answers would be a ton of help. Also please spread the word on this!!!

They checked it but I signed some paper that said the Powersports could only check what they could and they would not be held responsible for no problems

You had a motorsports place look at it and they said it was fine but you want to sue the previous owner?

you could do small claims, but it would cost probably at least 1500 total for a lawyer if you did it by the hour and no guarantee. Most used items are typically "as-is". Plus it's a snomobile should have checked the lines.

My sled you don't have to mix, you put the gas in the gas tank and it has a separate tank inside of it for the oil. But I had put sea foam in it that day

I would like to see said "photo graphic" evidence.

Sounds like you popped a fuel line and your **** burned.
Next time you'll get insurance. Live and learn.

And did you check if the oil injection system was working ? Can you walk us through on how you did this ?
