Looking to buy a used ATV and am taking my time and researching different models. My budget is $3,000 as I'll need to get all the other gear as well. Have ridden a bit over the years, but always on a borrowed machine. This will be my 1st..
Looking for a 4x4 Utility Quad, 450cc or greater, in good shape. Not into a fixer upper. Kinda hoping to find one some little old lady bought on a whim and is deciding to sell so she can buy a Harley! In other words, some of the ones I have looked at have been pretty beat up. Understood they get used, but hoping for one somebody took care of didn't do the X-Games on.....
I have been checking Kelly Blue book for pricing and read an article on how to check the basics here (http://4wheeldrive.about.com/od/atvb...y_used_ATV.htm) Any other suggestions?
Surprised sometimes how high above Blue Book some of the Craigslist / Alaskalist ads can be... Is this typical for AK?
Given my parameters and budget what models & features / options should I look for or be aware of?
Also, curious how AK registration and insurance works. Guessing I won't NEED insurance as I won't be financing it. ???
Any info would be appreciated. Thanks guys!
