Sold the Bayou 400 for a really good profit and found a good bike for my oldest! 

I’ve been buying old, beat up low $ fixing and selling for good profit. 

So far I’ve done pretty well. Picked up this 2009 rancher!

That's a great quad, nice! Where do you find these deals? Is it craigslist?

So that’s a 350. Originally from New Hampshire. Found it on CL and went to see it in Brewster ny. The guy that I bought it from has property up there and picked it up driving by an estate sale. 

I Paid $2800 with papers original bill of sale including maintenance records.  

I sold that Bayou I rebuilt from one of my older posts here. The brown camo one for  $1800 and grabbed this.  I was into that bike for a total of $750 bike, parts, paint everything!  Bought it with a bad cam journal noise for those of you that remeber.  Paid $400 running but a slight knock. Picked up a really nice used head for $140 and gaskets etc. Hated to sell it bc it was so tight and ran great. Also fast. But this bike is worth the swap.  My oldest loved it.

so you got any tips on what to watch out for so you dont get scammed on a bike and sink a whole bunch of $$$$ into it for little return?

A couple of things I always bring with me. 

1. A small jumper pack to see if the bike cranks and dash lights work. 

2. Socket set to pull the plug so you can check compression/spark. 

3. Vin# web page stored as a favorite on my phone to verify the year. 

4.Always look under the plastics to see that the colors all match and haven’t been changed. 

5. I look at the bolts everywhere especially the engine to see if there Is any striping from sockets or wrenches that have been put on the bolts. Kind of an indicator as to if the engine has been taken apart. 

6. Color of oil (grey) for water 💦 no good. 

7. Tons of tape on the wiring harness like someone has torn through it and re taped.

8. Go through all the gears, weather the bike runs or not. Put it in gear and try to roll bike see how it puts pressure on the engine. 

9. Lastly I look for welds on the frame. For repairs to cracks, wrecks etc. 

All of these things I do very quickly and use the results as a negotiation tool when buying.

      got that 220 I'm 'servicing'..........  well it turned into a guts and oil job....  I cleaned the carb and it wont idle cold, but idles too fast when warm.  also misfires and burns rich cold (white smoke out of the exhaust)  I'm going to order a new carb since the old one is leaking and beat up (some one was tinkering)  I'm wondering about the valve clearance and timing...?  Maybe a factor?   What should the clearance be on the valves?  How should I check the timing on this bike?  (this is a mid 90s bayou 220 2x4)

      I'm really considering this utv. Before any negative comments about this machine remember I did everything I wanted with a 250 Ozark. My 09 rubicon was over kill. I'll use it for snow plowing bulldozing logging and cruising. So I can spend 8,500 on a ruby or the 500 pioneer.

      My Rancher cranks right up and runs great for a while and then it will suddenly sputter out and die. It usually cranks right back up and again runs great for a while and then same thing. Yesterday it got to where it acted like it wasn't going to crank back up a few time but eventually did. Any suggestions??

      Just got a 2001 300 2x4 Bayou that needs a shifter shaft. Is this a very hard replacement to do? What do I need to watch for? Is there a video on this repair?
