Thanks, we really like checking out the old school stuff. With the right buyer and a decent quad you can get 4,000 for each pretty easy.(at least hear)

The 250R is what all other sport quads strive to be. No other quad to date has had better geometry, Honda keeps it simple. Doesn't get any easier than keeping a 2 stroke running good. There is nothing to fail,It is a piston, rings, and a carb. Honda's 2 strokes are extremely reliable. I have had over 3,000 miles on a single ring/piston set. If you do your oil changes and run the correct mixture they are amazingly reliable. Used parts are readily available so you don't have to buy everything brand new.

What year are you looking at? 86 is faster than the others.

In 1987 all of the companies came to the agreement to not have a stock quad go faster than mid 70 mph range. This was due to all fo the injuries that happen when ATV's first hit the scene. The 86 250R will hit in the mid 80's where as the 87 and 88 will hit in the 70's.

My 87 did 94 with my old motor:D. I was told it was a 275cc built by CT racing. Make sure to look at the left side case. Biggest problem I have seen is if you throw a chain you can crack the left side case. Make sure you have a case saver but that is no guaranty - especially if you are going fast. It will just break the saver and the case. Just ask me how I know:(

Chains do break, usually it is from lack of care for the chain or an old chain. But I have seen a few good chains break...

Not talking the chain breaking. Mainly coming off for a number of reasons. I have broke the rear sprocket. It is not that protected just a few inches off the ground. Also i think 86-87 only has 2 bolts for the bearing carrier which allows for the chain to loosen if you don't pay attention. The 88-89 has 4 bolts - holds a little better.

I think those old Suzuki Quad Racers were fast too, but I can't remember how fast they would run. It's been too long.
