2003 Z400 worn out?
I've been atving for 7years and am 19 years old. I currently have a 2001 honda 350 4x4 ES and am looking at purchasing a sport quad. I found a 2003 Suzuki LT-Z400 and took it for a test drive tonight. It seemed okay but had no back brake, the black foot plastic was cracked along with the yellow plastic, and after driving up and down the road a couple times the cooling fan kicked on, the resoiver read full so...is that normal? The quad has a yoshimura pipe and dynojet kit. The rear grab bar was missing all the paint along with the front of the a-arms so would that be from riding and wheeling in the sand and normal use? I also found neutral alittle hard to find after coming to a stop in third and then going into reverse and such, should I be expecting to replace a clutch and tranny. The front dunlop stock tires were also quite worn and it featured bearclaw tires on the rear (the owner has a set of dune tires on alternate ITP rims and loves the sand. That being the case, could the shocks be worn from all the jumping in 3 years?). Any input on this machine and how it should look or operate being that old would be great. Thanks Torbin
