the one i wanted was 1500$+tax with speedo, lights and mags.

look at the bright side, you could have bought a 10k japanese quad and pay 10k for your leg.





Wait.......it blew up on you???? i've heard of engines seizing because of abuse, but 4 strokes exploding?

well the motor works great i shouldv reworeded it.

the craftsmanship on these things suck major donkey dong. i'v sheard all the drive bolts, ruined the chain, stripped gears, the big one that caused my led to get shattered was the rear shock. ( mind you my quad is teh racing one from them) so i was racing came off a job and when landing the rear shock literally exploded! gernaded into my leg and threw me off the quad under the tire and the same leg that got grenaded into also go twisted aound and started to wrap arournd the axle. after emergency surgey and then 1 other surgey i have my leg back to somewhat normal and just finished fixing the quad. (its been 3 yrs) hahaha i still love it but damn the chinese steel and all sucks!

Wow!


But at the same time, you have to understand that the japanese quads cost 8-9 times what chinese quads cost, and then you can't race them without fitting racing parts first. So that makes them at least 10 times more expensive (maybe more, not too sure about all the prices on race parts).

Still, it sucks that you had to learn the hard way.

You mean the one on the seats of automatics that replaced the stupid cupholders on the console under the dash? Fat chance. None of my junkyards have anything that new except for one, and they don't have any Rangers at the moment.
