Well good idea for the right price in great condition. Buying from stealership or private party?

Check lower steel frame for cracks and aluminum frame for cracks too. Check front sprocket if original one with plastic ring and worn out kind of can calculate hours, but not always true. Stock quad or fully built? If it is fully built all raced out expect engine to blow soon after you buy it since probably was pinned and pinned on that accelerator red line reved.

Most race quads are MUCH better taken care of then quads that aren't raced.


2014 is a good year, the only thing I would suggest is getting a Vortex and AIS delete if it doesn't have it already since the throttle bog sucks. As long as it's well taken care of and a good price go for it!

Stop telling people race bikes are clapped out.
I replace a piston and cylinder every 10-15 hours, head inspected in that time, oil change every race or ride, have 3 air filters I cycle through, and tear down every off season.
No weekend warrior is maintaining their bike to the degree a racer is. No weekend warrior builds an engine to sustain the abuse. They just ride stock and are content but ride it like racers. So the stock bike with sticker and razr tires is the bike I'd be concerned about.
What have you done as far as maintenance? And how far will you go? Will you follow the manual and the recommended service hours on every part?

Too many people around here buy a machine at the start of the season, don't even maintain it, beat it senseless all year, then sell it around wintertime to some kid who wants to be drift king in the snow.

Rob's theory holds water for the majority of people.

We don't spend thousands to neglect the bikes. So to say a racers bike is best on and clapped out is pure nonsense. Some guys have more in suspension then people do in entire machines.
