Looking to get my first quad

Recommended Posts

Been contemplating getting one for a while now, found one that's in my price range. Will be checking it out tomorrow. 

87 yamaha warrior 350, bone stock.

Mainly just to put around on and ride the back roads up nothern mn. With it being a single cylinder 4 stroke not exactly powerful or fast but enough.

I know if I dont like it i could easily get my money back on it.

I'll poke around on here a little bit but not really big on forums anymore.

Just be careful with what you are buying. At that age it could end up costing you more in the long run. Check the air filter first for dirt, if it is not clean chances are there may be dirt that got into the engine. If it stops working you will have to put money into to get it fixed and thus not getting your money back. Also make sure the person selling it provides you with the pink slip. No pink slip, no buy.

I agree with @Boozy  you have to be careful. We all had this conversation with a recent  topic that was posted on buying a used bike. There are priceless tips from the members that have been through the ringer.  Some good and some bad situations.  Take a look at that topic if you can and if you have any questions ask away. This is a forum you will actually enjoy.  Tons of info here at Quadcrazy. Now aside from that I have to say you will be shocked with the speed of a bike like that. Don’t under estimate the power or the year of that bike. You will love it, especially if it’s in stock condition.   Be sure to post some pics and even if there is no pink slip, a bill of sale with the vin# on it and the sellers name and signature is binding. You shouldnt have a problem.  

Good luck and welcome to Quadcrazy!

It's at a dealer so I feel better about buying it. The plastics are a little rough but its 31 years old so to be expected. 

I have an idea what to look for, long as the clutch dosent slip, burn oil, filthy oil soaked motor, idle bad I think I'll be in the clear. Granted never really know till after I own it, is usually how it goes.

Make sure you can test drive it first and let it idle before and after. The eyes/demenor of the salesman will tell you if you are getting close to something when you start looking at things. At the end of the day its the dealers responsibility to make money.

The only thing is its supposed to be a high of -2 tomorrow and windy. How I dont know how well it will take that cold. My harley wont run in those temps, I'll be able to ride it for maybe 5 mins before I'm frozen. Hopefully I get a good idea.

      I have a 1998 yamaha grizzly 600 4x4 I have put back to life but as soon as I had all the bugs out it blew the special "L" plug out. What causes this? Is there something special I have to do to replace this?

      Hey guys, Thanks for looking at my post. I haven't had a lot of experience with problems like this before, so I'm a little bit at a loss. The Quad was really hard to shift, (the dirty carb leaking gas making it idle high didn't help either). The only Idea I have would be is that the torsion spring is worn out, and that there is a normal parameter for how much it should move when those two arms of the shift shaft assembly spread apart.  That's my thought. Maybe someone who has more knowledge then me can let me know if i'm on the right track 😀

      OK everybody,I need some help here please. My 4 wheeler has got a bad wheel bearing I discovered while starting a brake job. Its on the left side. I've never done one and I need some knowledge how to go about it. Am I to understand I need to pull the whole axle out to do it. I've done it once on a car about 30 years ago,lol. I keep looking around for a repair manual but they're hard to find without having to buy it. I looked here on this site but apparently Im too junior a member to be able to download one right now.Bummer!  One other question if I may.When I pulled the drum off the spindle a torrent of water poured out,the brake shoes were covered in mud along with everything else. I mean the drum had alot of water in it. The shoes were so locked up after I removed the springs I tried to rotate one of the shoes and it wasn't easy at all. I noticed whoever had the machine before myself had laid a bead of RTV around the back plate but apparently it didn't work. Isn't there some kind of gasket for this purpose. I saw it calls for a dust shield but surely this wont keep the brakes dry or will it. Thanks everybody.
