What ATV should I get

11 posts in this topic

Our family has a 1996 Honda fourtrax 300 and I really like it, it is small easy to work on, and we have had to do nothing but routine mantenance on it. I am looking for a atv for myself to make small modifications to. I like instruments for oil, rpm, volts, etc. 4x4 is a must. I don't like the prices of these new ones, so $1,000 -$2,000 would be my price range. What would be a good atv to look for in this price range?

do some research, maybe on ebay to see what is available in that price range. You definately want to get something that isn't going to cost a lot of money to repair or maintain and something that you feel comfortable on. Having an ATV that is comfortable to you makes a big difference.

No problem. It's tough to answer that question because what I think is an awesome quad you might get and then find out that it is not comfortable. Ergonomics are different on certain machines and not everyone is built the same. Research is the key and the internet makes it easy to find information.:yes:

Maybe a late 90s honda foreman? They are around 2500 - 3000 around me on LI NY. So it should be cheaper elsewhere

H e is from Kentucky and they have some of the highest resale values on used atvs in the nation. So price could be a problem.

You can search for Polaris Magnum, Trail Boss, or Scrambler. All lot of those rigs are in that price range. Parts are pretty easy to get. Some are two stroke, some are 4 stroke. If the gauges don't work, I wouldn't waste money trying to fix them. I would just pick up a trail tech vapor (about $75) and it'll give you rpm, mph, odometer, etc.

Thanks for the info. I want a a utility. 4x4 isn't completely necessary but can be handy around here.
