A widow at our church has a 350D in blue. I've seen it from a distance, and it looked to be in excellent shape. I've been thinking about asking her if I can look it over, just for the fun of it. Maybe now, that a photo of it could be in order, I've got enough reason to ask her. Problem is, if it is in the shape that I think it is, I'm gonna want it... knowing her, she'd want $6000 for it...

Welcome to the forum, by the way!

Here's my fourtrax I picked up last week it's a blue single owner 4x4 1995 model. Completely stock never messed with, it was used to get previous owner back and fourth from his deer stand. I bought it with a bad wet clutch and gummed up carburetor which I have already fixed both. Rebuilt the carburetor and installed a ebc dirt racer clutch kit. Also I restored the original gas tank as you can see in the pictures. Featuring my 06 prairie in one of the pictures

Yes I would definitely try to take a look at it especially if it is in as good of condition as you are saying!

The more I've thought about it, the more I've gotten intrigued. I may call her tomorrow, and see if there's a time I can come by and look at it/get a photo or two. If I have to suffer, I'll post the photos for you guys to suffer, too.

I called the lady- Helen- and talked to her. She bought it new in 87. It is in overall very good shape, but it hasn't been serviced in a while. She is going out of state for about a week and a half, so I brought it home to work on. It'll give me a chance to go over it, and the opportunity to learn more about the 350D. I'm looking forward to it.

Damn that thing is in extremely good shape. Hopefully the motor is the same.

It seems to be. Pulls good, idles good, no chain noise. Only thing I've noticed is that the starter is noisy.

Got this last week for $200 it's missing a seat and the air filter was original and acted like Dracula once it seen the sun. After a carb rebuild it runs like a top. Just need to find a seat

Spent a little bit of time on it this morning. I like it- it drives/rides different than my 300, and I like it. The slightly bigger engine pulls great, but I did notice that either the centrifugal or the manual clutches are slipping, slightly. I'll adjust the mechanical clutches, but I think it could be in the centrifugal. Helen lets all of her grandkids drive it, and I bet that it has suffered from improper use.
The air filter is original, and while still pretty clean, the foam sleeve is falling apart. Also, the oil temp light comes on when started, even when dead cold. She had mentioned that, so I'll look into the temp sending unit.
Otherwise, the machine is tight, strong, and impressive. Honda did a good job.

That's a nice looking 350D, definitely a good buy. Well done.
Wish we had blue plastics/fenders in the UK, I love that blue!

the oil light comes on, for all Honda atvs when you first turn the key on, and crank it, then they should go out in a couple secs.

I know. This isn't the case. Cold engine, light comes on and fan runs. Sometimes, I can cut it off and turn it back on, and both stay off. Sometimes, the light stays off, but the fan runs. The engine is definitely not running hot, the oil is good, and it is intermittent.
