Ok, without getting bashed for trading a dirtbike for a quad (I have other bikes) give me your opinion on something... I have a 2000 CR250, which is in near perfect shape. I take very good care of my toys, and replace everything as needed. Bearings, tires, fluids, top end, filters, etc etc etc are all new and fresh. There is a guy who has a 2006 TRX 450 that he wants to trade straight up. He also has several bikes and quads, wants a 2 stroke 250 to run woods, and doesn't get much use out of his quad. He says its in great shape, will need tires all the way around. He bought it off a rich kid who had 4 brand new different quads and never rode it, and he said he's put about 6-8 hours on it. Obviously I'm not taking his word on anything, and will ride it, and will check it out from head to toe, but if everything checks out.... am I getting a pretty good deal here? I can't imagine that a 11 year old 2 stroke is worth the same as a decent newer 450 quad? I'll have it looked over and the valves adjusted and whatnot (i'm brand new to 4 strokes), but unless there is major issues (which I feel I could detect while riding it) I think i'm getting a pretty good deal. I've wanted to add a quad to the collection for a while now, seems like a good opportunity even if I just turned around and decided to sell it. 2000 CR 250's generally go for around $1100 - $1600 around here. I paid $1100 for mine and put a fair amount of work into it (not a ton of cash though) Long winded, I apologize, but let me know if you would jump at the opportunity, would approach cautiously, or would steer clear altogether.
