Please Help Me Not Get Ripped Off


Recommended Posts

All I can say is check for engine noises or taps like valves or rod knocks. If it is drivable. The clutch should be smooth and grab about a quarter of the way out. Other than that. Great quad and you’d be happy. It will go fast and it’s a lot of machine. It’s not really a tight trail quad. Check the oil too. And look into the radiator cap for oil residue.

I bought the quad last night for $2500 including a set of new paddle tires mounted on rims. To the best of my knowledge, there was nothing wrong with it, and the guy appeared to have taken really good care of all of his machines. I plan on selling the paddle tires as I have no intentions of going to the dunes. The quad is pretty clean, the only scratch or visible damage being on the front bumper (he acknowledged that in the ad). Thanks everyone for your input!

It’s exceeded my expectations for a CVT quad to be honest. So far, I’ve never felt that I’m out of power or that I could ride any better with more power. However, it was decently hard to start (especially after I held it at WOT while trying to start... my bad), but nothing that can’t be attributed to colder weather or a bad battery. Just replaced the battery, as the old one was bad, and it starts like a dream.

Here’s a pic of it sitting in my garage, and hopefully I can get a riding video tomorrow.

Yeah. Never rolled, only bumped into a tree on the front bumper.

Decent turning radius. It does pop the wheels up pretty easily though.

I was going to say something about it being a wheelie machine... I was test riding one, at the dealership I worked at, either after assembly or working on a customer unit, and yeah... they do pick the front up real easy. Nice find!

      I Ran across this video today comparing an aftermarket to OEM Carb on Suzuki Vinson, thought it might generate some interest, it is quite long but informative.

      Hello there
      I'm having a problem finding a quality carburetor for a 1993 Suzuki Quad Runner lt-f 250 2x4. I find a lot that have 3-4 star ratings. And all so far don't have the right throttle Cable inlet at the top. The last one I got 4 star on Amazon has a threaded cable sheath rest that could be partially drilled to work. I would prefer to get one I don't have to modify. Any recommendations are greatly appreciated!

      Just wondering where you guy's an Gal's get your parts. I love buying OEM stuff but sometimes they just cost to darn much for what they are. I know, I know everybody needs to make a living but dang! $ 97.00 for brake pads on one side of the front of my KingQuad. There has got to be a better way.

      I have to replace all 4, how much is involved?  Will they slide out of the front yoke? Or, do the boots just slide over the wheel end?
