I have purchased two atvs from Ebay. The first was for my son a Predator 90.

I didn't like purchasing it sight unseen but it turned out ok. I just bought an 88 LT205R.

It was listed on Ebay but I actually went and purchased it in person. I have generally had good experience with Ebay though.

ATV Scam: Buyer Beware

Scam artists target unsuspecting ATV buyers

February 27/04

Written by Greg

When we're looking for a used quad, one of the best sources is our local Buy&Sell newspaper, which is also conveniently available online. Everyone's looking for a good deal, but our resident Scam Busters noticed some deals that appeared to be too good to be true.

The basic M.O. (modus operandi, or method of operation) of the scam is this:

The crook places an ad in an online publication, which means he can be located anywhere in the world.

The image has been stolen from an eBay ad or some other online source.

The asking price is well-below fair market value, supposedly because he has financial obligations requiring immediate attention.

The quad is not local to the publication (ie. it's in a different province).

The seller wants the money sent Western Union.

The seller will not give out his address or phone number, usually saying he "just moved" and doesn't know it, or that he's at work and cannot take calls.

      If you are looking for a used ATV for sale, where do you look? I know ebay and craigslist have used ATVs for sales and then sometimes you find local trade publications where they list used ATVs. I was looking online and decided to list out some websites that sell used ATVs. If you know of any additional websites or sources to look for or buy used ATVs, please post as a comment in this topic.
      eBay Motors  - usually has a good selection of four wheelers, ATVs, and Side by Sides and offer seller protections
      Craigslist - usually has more local ATVs, but be careful as there are no seller protections
      ATV Trader - has over 130k ATVs listed by private sellers
      ATVSoup.com - new and used ATVs for sale
      WantAdDigest - Shows local listings of ATVs for sale
      ATV.com - List new and used ATVs for sale
      When buying a used ATV, make sure you do your research and find out the book value of the ATV, look over the condition of the ATV, and as for verification of ownership. Be careful who you buy from and get the ATV checked out by a professional dealer or repair shop if you are baying a high price. 
      Watch our for VIN numbers that are scraped off, this is usually a sign that the ATV was stolen.

      I got an ATV from a guy that ran out of time rebuilding an eiger 400. He put a nerma Piston and rings in. I finished it up and it smoked like a train. I took the head off and honed the walls and it looked like the rings where on the walls, but it smokes just as much. I'm confused what's wrong with this thing.

      Can somebody please tell me if 250x or 250ex nerf bars will fit on 96 300ex, and will 93-98 300ex nerf bars work on my 96 300ex? Thanks
