\'86 suzuki Quadracer......

I got a lead on a cheap 250 suki',

Are they a decent quad? How do they compare to 300ex's, honda 250r's, etc.

Is there a good aftermarket for this quad?

Anyways, a guy I work with is selling his, and I think I can get it for around 1000 to 1200 bucks. I need to go look at it, but it seems okay in the pictures.

ANY HELP?

If it runs and it's straight, I don't see how you can go wrong for $1000.

Parts are definately available, especially online. As long as people keep racing them, the aftermarket companies are going to make parts.

Good luck

Re: \'86 suzuki Quadracer......

I checked it out today,

It has good plastic and decent tires, all in all looks okay.

The guy who is selling it says it needs rebuilt. Which it does, it sounds pretty nappy. It has a noticable knock and Has excessive smoke, I am HOPING it can be fixed up with just a top end rebuild, but am worried about buying a "money pit".

What do you guys think? If I can get this for 1000 bucks is it still worth it if I have to rebuild?

it's worth it, put $250 into it to fix it up, then you'll only prolly have like 1300 invested into it, and then sell it for like 2500-3000 and get a honda [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

I would be carefull, if it has a knocking noise it may be the lower end going, and that can be quit abit more money, you need to check the bushings in the A-Arms, swing arm , rear axle brngs and wheel brngs, check the chain and sprokets, everything, the LT250 WHEN IN GREAT SHAPE is a nice ride

but even if the crank bearings were shot, it would probably still be worht it for 1000, shouldn't it? I am thinking about just getting it and crossing my fingers [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: \'86 suzuki Quadracer......

Oh yeah, I did check all that stuff, It will probably need axle bearings before long, but other than that is seems to be in good shape. (meaning I won't have to replace everything on it in order to ride....)
