That sounds ominous:) Well we have a Kawasaki 185 shaft drive vintage I think 1987. Damn thing has an electric fuel pump that went out and can't be found anywhere except from Kawasaki and they want $500.00 for one. since we paid $400.00 for the four wheeler several years ago I guess it's toast. I did tape a lawn mower tank up on the rear rack and had it working on gravity feed but the hose kept coming loose. I really like riding four wheelers and feel they're great for hauling firewood and other chores around the property. I just wish I could afford a good one. I know some people who are deeply into the ATV scene and it is still growing, you see trailers and pickups hauling them to the tracks, parks, and woods every weekend around here.

Yeah it's still a growing thing. The problem is places to ride.

Yep. The bad thing is you could get a used one and it go bad the next day.

i DON'T SUPPOSE YOU'D WANT TO UNLOAD ONE OF YOUR's CB750? My boy wants another one but it'd have to be cheap...you'd be surprised how little editors earn:) If you know of one around here for sale cheap let me know.

I'll keep my eyes peeled. I do know of a couple places to try up my way. If ya want the numbers let me know. None of mine are for sale right now and the smallest one I got is my oldest boys and he would flip out if I sold it. Small Japanese ones like 80's and 90's are hard to find cheap if they are in decent shape. They hold their value. How big of one do you want?
Did some ridin' yesterday to break in my wife's new one now nicknamed the Caddy. I'll post some pics later.

Good news! I bought an ATV today. It's smaller than I wanted but the price was too good to pass up. It's a Honda 125. Now it doesn't have suspension but that's okay for our uses cause we don't really do rough riding. It has electric start (a BIG plus), tow hitch, and the power to pull a yard cart load of oak. It's in good condition, runs great, and only cost $375. No title so it'll have to be used here on the property only (we have lots of trails) We'll still be looking for a bigger one. Passed on a polaris 250 ($700.)because it only had pull start. Been there & am too old & feeble to give more than a couple yanks on a 250 without pooping out:) Hey Boatski what'd that 450 set you back?

Cool that ya got one. You can't beat anything that runs for that kind of money.
If you want something cheap that will do anything that you want it to do get your hands on either a Yamaha Moto4 in the 225,250 or 350cc or one of the older Honda 300's.
Here's a pic of the Caddy and the Raptor

Cool looking units! Do you and the kid get out much this summer? A lot of families ride together and it's a substantial part of their lives. I really need to get another ATV so me and the boy can share the experience. Do you guys stick to trails or do you make your own path through the woods?

My brother is storing his Honda Recon (i think its a Recon) at my house. I am supposed to pick up a Suzuki 125 ATV... it needs a lot of work, but i am getting it as a project.

My wife and I ride a good bit during the summer but mostly it's just myself. Mostly we hit up the state forest trails. The one by Shippensburg isn't too bad and there is one in Fulton county that's ok for a ride. We're going to try out a couple more of them when we get time. At the forest trails you have to stay on the designated trail. The oldest boy can go there if he takes the safety course from what I understand but the 2 younger ones aren't old enough. The kids can ride at my wife's grandparents house.
The older Suzuki Quadrunners are easy to work on and no problem finding parts for so that's a good project TxFLSTC.
I got lucky, and picked up a 1985 Suzuki LT250R Quadracer off of CraigsList -- for free. Just needs carb floats to run. This was a pro racing rig, and it's been raced long and hard. Can't beat the comfy suspension, and it goes 75mph. I'll be lucky if I do 17.5mph. I expect my kids to be jumping the cattle in a few months.
Anyone have a used set of plastics for cheap? ;)
