Looking to buy a ...quad.

Recommended Posts

Before you start screaming, it's for my wife.

Looking for a 2WD, 250cc or bigger, four stroke, electric start, and reverse.

I would prefer Honda, but open minded. Only looking to spend $2000-$2500.

Just want something she can putt around on in the yard, maybe eventually some trails.

I'm in Cadillac.

Thanks,

Chad

Godzuki,

Where are you located at?

What year is it, and does it have reverse?

If it does, I might be interested.

Thanks,

Chad

The 400ex doesn't have reverse or auto clutch but I need to sell it so I thought I would post it.

I bought my wife an '88 Honda TRX250X. It was great and it had reverse. No electric start, but it always started on the first kick, no matter how long it sat in between rides. I think I paid 1900 bucks for it a few years back. If you can find one, its a great ride. She loved it but sold it after my friend broke his neck and back while we were riding in 2000. He's ok now, but she got scared and backed out of the sport.

Look for one of those if these other quads mentioned in this thread don't work out.

Givin your price range I'd say 300ex if a manuel clutch is OK,it's kinda a pain to shift into revese tho. the TRX250 is more or less the same thing w/o elec. start. they changed from 250 to 300ex in 92'. Honda makes a 250ex I think its a auto trans, shaft drive but I don't know the price range of these

well i have been thinking about his all day today. but first to answer your questions

1.im in kalamazoo

2.it is a 1986 and i bought it from the original owner who used it to pull his trash to the end of his realy long a_s drive way, and some occasional wood gathering with a small trailor.

3. yes it does have revers

4. oh yea it also has new chain and sprockets.

now onto what im thinking about

would you be interested in a deal for both the quad and the dirt bike kinda a combo package a 1986 honda trx200sx, and a 1994 honda xr 200 for say 3000. now im just throwing this out there id have to get finnal approval from wifey being the quad i bought for her, and she has grown attached to it. i know its slightly over your 2500 limit you set but its 2 for pretty much that same price, so if she wanted she could transition to the dirt bike later. if this is a interesting deal, then ill need a week or 2 as the xr has sat all winter and i know ill need to pull the carb and clean it as i forgot to put stabil in the gas.

ohh to add to the others post, my buddie had a 250x honda he loved his, i rode it a few times to a pretty nice quad, i had a suzuki 230 quadsport at that time that was a great little quad but also a manual clutch, but it was easy getting into reverse, a big down fall was its kick start you had to kick out away from the quad not kicking back like most.

qcustom,

Thanks, but I'll have to pass on yours. You should have no problem selling it.

Godzuki,

I might be interested in the quad, but I can't see my wife on two wheels.

I already have an XR400, so I don't think I could go down to a 200.

Thanks,

Chad

I forgot to mention a Warrior, you could probably find one of those well within your price range if not lower.
