I have a Yamaha Blaster i have been trying to trade for a Honda atv.This guy has a 2001 Honda 250EX that he wants to trade me.The only problem is he said that the weld broke on the rear hub .He wants to trade me but i have to fix the hub.I don't know alot about fixing 4-wheelers.Is this a serious thing that is wrong with it?Is it easy to fix?Was the hub welded when new? I don't know if i should trade or not? Any help appreciated!! Thanks!

First off, there should not be any welds on the hub, it is a cast part. Replacing it would not be very expensive. If there is a broken weld somewhere, I am thinking that he is talking about something else, not a hub. Secondly, I agree with Gearhead, the Blaster is a better machine IMO. A 250EX is going to be slower and probably a bit heavier. There are alot of things you can do to make that Blaster better and faster. I have seen highly modified Blasters eat up mildly modded Raptor 700's, Banshees, all types of 450's and 250 pingers. If you want to trade for a Honda, I would shoot for a 400EX, 250R or better or I think you will just end up disapointed. You may need to add some cash to the trade, or just sell the Blaster and buy something else. Performance wise, a 250EX or even a 300EX would be a step down IMO.
