Suzuki Vinson Question

I am looking at this Suzuki Vinson(2002, 500cc, 4x4, auto, 230 miles) for sale that a private owner has. I rode it and everything seems fine, it looks brand new, but i had alittle trouble moving the gear selector. It would seem to get stuck, but to get it to move you would have to rock the atv back and forth. Is this normal for the automatics on atvs? Anything you know would help me in my decision. Thanks alot.

Re: Suzuki Vinson Question

Hey, Yeah ours does the same thing and we bought it brand new like that. The gal at the dealer said it would do that and not to worry about it. I've ridden it a few times and my wife rides it all the time, itís not that big of a deal once you get used to it.

One other thing about that bike, be careful if you are a new rider. I rolled it right on top of my self the second time out. I think it was because all the power hitting that strait rear axel and coming out of that vertical ditch is what did it. Iím used to riding an independent rear suspension Honda Rincon. Yeah 600lbs hurts when itís sitting on top of you! But for the most part it is a bad ass bike.

Re: Suzuki Vinson Question

yeah, i had a vinson brand new, the shifter hanging in gear is somewhat normal for the machine, and pretty much only the vinson, my sister worked for a suzuki dealer and there supposedly is a fix for it but it requires the entire tranny to come apart so most dealers won't do it because the symptom isn't a big deal, as far as the machine goes they take a beating, but with all belt drives they don't like oversized tires, my quad would get stuck in almost any mud due to the fact that the belt couldn't push my tires, the only other thing to pay attention to if it has oversized tires are the front tie rod ends, they loosened up almost every ride and are a pain to reach on that model,
