where abouts are you in Canada? check kijiji for similar bikes. physical inspection, check oil to see if it has been changed or high/low on the dipstick. look at condition of plastic and rims. if the rims are dinged and bent out of shape, whoever had it bullied it, same with plastics if they are all scratched up. drive the bike, notice how it starts, if its burning oil ... exhaust white or bluish colour. putt around with it, shift the gears to make sure its smooth. no knocks in engine when running, throttle response is good. it sucks that there isnt an hour meter on it, and odometer ... somewhat have to read the seller. make sure it doesnt get too hot when running, the bikes do run warm, but not excessively hot. you could check the front and rear differentials for fluid, no mud or water inside. obvious oil leaks at gaskets ... more or less condition at first sight and run it ... check the steering if it is tight, tie rods, ball joints ... more or less like you would a car you are buying ...

They didn't seem to have the bulb I needed. Dealer wants $12.99. Found it at napa autoparts for .74 but need to buy 10. Still ahead of the game. Im buying an ATV snowblower 15 hp mounted to the Kodiak. It is going to work out to 3800 for ATV 2300 for blower, new battery, winch and comes with a second seat and tool box. I think it is a descent deal.
