First off welcome to Quadcrazy. That’s a lot of money for what you need done.   If your mechanically inclined you can work on the bike yourself and save a ton.  It’s also an old bike so I’m sure you paid very little for it so you don’t want to put too much into it.  YouTube has tons of videos to help you along as well as the members her at Quadcrazy.   Parts are available from eBay or aftermarket.  

But again this all depends on how much you can do yourself.

I agree with @Frank Angerano , that's too expensive for a brake job and switch. You can probably do it yourself. Check out some of the videos on youtube as mentioned.

Listen, I’m not sure what your situation is but I can tell you this. You have to make the time if this is something you like to do! 

I have enjoyed doing this work/play most of my life. I got married, had kids and all of that was put on the back burner for a long time. As soon as things settled down I had to make the time to do what I am doing now.

Plain and simple this is what I like to do and it keeps me sane.  Not saying it’s for everyone  but you have a good old bike that you can get parts for and you can get the bike back to good. Question is do you want to have a project bike ? 

Its very rewarding bringing some back to life. 

Quadcrazy has a huge member base to help you along the way!

Make a list, prioritize it and bang it out if this is something for you. 

No matter which way you go good luck!

I do enjoy it. But I'm working 7/12's right now and there is no time to be had. That's one of the reasons I wanted to go with a mechanic. I've looked on Amazon and Ebay for parts I need and I just don't see them. The mechanic told me they don't even make new parts for most of my bike. Is that even true? Can you tell me where to find new parts? And the reason I joined here was to be able to talk to ppl like you. So yes... I want to get this thing going. I'd at least like to get all the parts ordered that way when I get laid off I can do it.

7/12’s is money ! Make it while you can! 

I’ve taken a look and there are parts out there.  Even on eBay, depending on the parts you need.  

Make a list and post it on the forum and I’m sure myself and a few other members will know where to look and point you in the right direction and help out.

      Well im at it again, took about an hour drive Saturday and made a deal on this old honda. 
      Might be restorable. Tires pretty dry rotted, mastercylinder broken glass and probably full of water. 
      Handed me the carb he rebuilt (oh no) He said ran about 6 months ago but when we pushed out of his
      field there was a tree growning through it. See pic.  Missing some parts, also missing the intake. Motor is not
      locked up, Has piece of plastic crammed in the head since no carb there for months. Brake cables bad, etc. Thats
      part of the fun. Im sure I will be posting some questions later for you all. Stay tuned Az.

      I have a 2011 850 Sportsman.  Has been absolutely trouble free except for 1 thing. I am on my 4th. ignition switch. I don't know if it's that they are all chinese junk or what.  It gets to a point  when you turn the key and it will act like the battery is going bad. Cranks real slow or not at all. Put a new switch in and its fine. New one will last 1 1/2 - 2 years and its junk. I've had the Polaris brand and after market. As a matter of fact the original one lasted the lest amount of time.  Other than that it's been a perfect machine . No electrical problems. No battery problems. Just curious if anyone else has had the same issue.

      I likely just kissed $200 goodbye buying a Honda 250 this AM from Craiglist.  We'll see.
      - VIN number is off the front frame; one VIN site calls it a 2008 Honda 250 TRX - this baby ain't a 2008; other VIN sites list the VIN as invalid; might be that the owner (a shady dude from a shadier side of my home town) put a 2008 front end on it?  No idea.  
      - a HUGE hint (hint #1) would've been that there's no key to start the machine - gotta use a screwdriver.  I'll likely be visited by police sometime in the near future.
      - owner acquired from another man - owner showed me video of him riding it this summer on a major interstate while very drunk (hint #2) - the machine sounded good in the video
      - no front headlight; owner said machine has new carb - looks Chinese - he didn't have original carb; air intake box is wide open - no long plastic connection sleeve leading into air box like on my 99 king quad; no visible oil leaks; oil is dark; air filter clean; decent plastic; no front right brake apparatus; left brake handle very loose and rear brake doesn't work
      - battery at this point is good; manipulate the ignition switch w/ screw driver and the green neutral light shines (this has since stopped working)
      - it's a kick start machine: when I kicked it down (hint #3), the compression sounded normal, almost "tight"  but at the end of the cycle, there was some awful grinding noise coming from what sounded like either inside the engine or the starter area; I let it settle, kicked it again, same noise heard at the end of cycle; owner said it likely needs a new starter - I only hope it's this simple
      pictures attached - the throttle cable / zip tie pic is my favorite - but it works!  it was CRAZY dirty prior to pressure washing - and the water in air box is likely secondary to the power wash - no water was in it when purchased
      gotta few things to complete on the king quad - will be changing motor/gear oil in honda and getting new oil filter over time - talk soon - hope y'all had a great Christmas

      Hello,
      I recently picked up an ‘07 KFX 700. All was going well, rode it about 40 miles, when it started bogging at low speeds. If I kept the revs higher, I was just fine. Also, a persistent issue since I picked it up is the fairly difficult start (but it is abnormally cold right now and the quad is jetted for the dunes at summertime).
      Regarding the complete lack of idle, I have to rev it a couple times to get it to idle after starting it, after which it’s 50/50 whether it remains idling. I don’t have low fuel, but all of this began after I rode it pretty hard and the radiator fan kicked in. Might be overheating, just wanted to hear your opinions.
