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.

John

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.

      got 7 atvs off CL recently for a good price.  one of which is a yamaha warrior.  anyone know where the vin is printed on this bike?  Haha good place to start as I do not know year or size yet.  The former owner says needs exhaust ans and clutch work.  he said it ran fine until the clutch cable broke and then I couldn't get the new cable adjusted right and it would grind gears.  things I see:  clutch cable locked up again, no brakes, carb leaking (green with algae around the bowl and has gelled gas stalagtights on it), aftermarket exhaust melted the airbox so I need something different and a new air box.  I would like the use the current exhaust if I can but I have a feeling its a redneck fix as it looks like there is an ace bandage holding it to the exhaust pipe (its an aftermarket slip-on exhaust), so I'm not sure about that- lets get the bike running first.  also, battery (looks brand new, what a shame) is dead, 0 volts.  Otherwise, bike looks to have not been wrecked, and plastics are ok (it sat outside under a 'tarp' for 3+ years since it was run last).  any tips and advise on where to start first would be awesome as this is my first clutched bike (manual).
      the clutch is my main concern- I've never rode a clutched bike so I dont even know what its supposed to feel like.  lol I'm spoiled on my automatic polaris

      Does anybody know where I can buy a complete wiring harness for a Yamaha bear tracker. If not could someone send me a picture of the the colors of the wires coming out of the cdi plug and voltage rectifier. So I can get an idea of how I need to wire it. Also where can I find a wiring diagram for them?

      I recently acquired a Yamaha bear tracker 250 that does have a wiring harness.  Does anybody have a wiring diagram for the 250s. Also if you have a pin diagram that tells be the colors of the wires going to the cdi and rectifier or just a picture of the plugs would be much appreciated. I can’t find anything on the harness online. I have all of the switches and stuff and I plan on just build a harness myself because I can’t find one to buy.
