I would be on my way already with $1000 in hand. The Honda fourtrax alone in decent shape would be worth $500.  That’s a lot of goodies to work on or part out and make good money on eBay but it would be over time.

yea thats what I was thinking- my only concern is that I would just run into too many problems on some of the bikes.

Wow Very nice.  Price range is really good for a bike like that with all the after market stuff.  Just be careful when you are buying.  

Make sure it’s all on the up and up.  If they ask you to send them your email address so they can send you more pics etc do not do so.  There are scams out there just to get your email addres and obtain personal information. 

Im not sure of the price range of bikes like that in your area but a bike like that here would be about $5000 K so I would see a red flag 🚩 but out near you that may be the value.

So I looked up that bike in your area and kbb has it at $4300 in good condition.  So if it’s in very good or better condition you have to figure $4800 and it has some after market parts.  So that’s a very good price this person is selling to for. Plus the owner is expecting a small deduction in price during negotiation prob no more then $200 at best maybe even $100 if you have the cash in hand.

I'm hoping so.  I have a buyer for my sportsman for $2500 so hopefully I'll have enough cash to invest in a good flip after that one is sold.

I would buy used off CL.  If you want new though, I have amazon prime so I would do Amazon- otherwise I dont know of any difference between them.

you can usually get them running used for $400-600

looking at this polaris 335 again..  https://roanoke.craigslist.org/snw/d/buchanan-1999-polaris-335-4x4/6814841462.html   The guy said he would give it for 950 with a plow attachment.  I'm going to be up his way this weekend and was thinking of at least going to look at it.  Nada says its worth 600-1900 depending on condition..  right now it needs a starter and battery...  (1900 would be like new cond which this thing is not, but it's looking great for its age..)

kbb says its worth 1400 trade in or 2200 retail, but you almost never get as much as kbb says they'er worth

I'm still interested in the 570 in NC, but the price is just out of my range and I doubt I can get there fast enough (this weekend is the soonest I could look at anything)

I'll try that- but he sounded pretty firm.  I'm hoping I can talk him down If I can come up with other problems with the bike...  looks like the front end might be out of alignment- maybe from a wreck.  dont know till you get there heh

thanks!

      OK, so I'm a boxing fan...anyone watch last night's fight between Manny Pacquiao & Ricky Hatton?

      The PacMan is just too fast and too accurate. Floyd Mayweather just announced yesterday that he's coming out of retirement to fight Marquez in July. Maybe we'll get a December fight between Pretty Boy and the PacMan?
      So, Manny has convincingly beaten up DeLaHoya (just announced his retirement from boxing) and now Hatton...

      Hello guys! New to the forum, and fairly new to ATVs. I've driven them, but never owned one. Now I do own one. Just picked it up today. It's a 1999 Yamaha Big Bear 350. It's been through some stuff. The guy I got it from told me the previous owner removed the front diff because he didn't want to replace the half shaft. So it's 2wd, even though it's supposed to be 4x4. Lovely. I can deal with that for now.
       
      More importantly, I need to get it running. The carb needs to be rebuilt. The guy I got it from said he sprayed it all out and it still didn't work. I'm concerned he might have damaged it or not put all the parts back. I was looking at a replacement carb, and the OEM parts is $600. I'd rather not spend $600 if there are any other options. I have seen carbs on Amazon and eBay that are in the $40 - $100 range that say they fit. Anyone have experience with these? I'm going to get a rebuild kit for the current carb just to make sure that won't fix it.
       
      Thats the first thing with it. Secondly, it was completely rewired. I need to find a original wiring diagram so I can put it back how it was, with a key and all. Currently it's wired with just a rocker switch. Any sources for a service manual that would include wiring diagrams?
       
      Thirdly, is the Big Bear 350 a good atv? I picked it up for $700. It does start and run when you spray starting fluid into the air intake, so I am not concerned about the engine being bad. I plan to use it for the farm, running around and carrying things with it like minerals and feed and such. Not really for mudding and things like that. How good is the 99 350?
       
      I am certain I will have more questions as I examine it more, but that's all for now. Thanks in advance for the assistance!
