If you can do the work yourself, it should be worth that, if that's the only problems it has. Hopefully it won't have a bad rod bearing. I would rock it back and forth and shift it through all gears to check the transmission to make sure it don't have a gear out.
Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!
You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.
