How small of a ATV is this? I dont really know much about ATV's but I like to snowmobile, jetski and used to dirtbike quite a bit... someone offered to trade me a 85 TRX 125 for a old jetski and I just wanted to find out if I am going to be to big to ride it..... I am just over 6ft tall

Is this similar to a 88 Polaris Cyclone 250? my friend has one and its not to bad

or is this more like the 90cc kid quad's?

You could probably ride it, but it would be too small for you. Here is a picture I found of one on the internet.

ha! wow... does not at all like something I am looking for....

I would like to purchase a ATV before to long... What is a good first ATV? looking to not spend more than around $1000 - $1200

Utility would be the main use... not so much sport ridding... not really looking for a hot rod just something to putt around the logging roads and back trails in the woods. Elect Start would be nice

Does honda make anything that would fit this bill? I am looking for something good and dependable more than speed and performance.

Yeah it has NO suspension at all looking at the diagrams on bikebandit. If you could find you a TRX 300 I think you would be more than pleased. They are tough, easy to maintain, plenty fast for what your wanting to do. They can be found for around your price range. I paid 800 bucks for mine with rough plastics.

I agree with Fourtrax. The Fourtrax 300 would be an excellent choice. They're a good all around ATV and you can't beat the dependability. They're like the Energizer Bunny. They just keep going and going and going.

Thanks for the input! are they an automatic trans or manual? are any years better than others?

Is the 300 a normal size that someone over 6ft could fit on?

Thanks for all your help!

Yeah, they're a 5 speed with the auto clutch. I don't know exactly what you call that. You have the foot shifter, but no manual clutch lever to operate.

They are manual foot shift but have a centrifigul clutch so there is no clutch lever and it will idle in gear. The early years were the faster more powerfull of all of them which would be from 88-90 or 92 can't remember now, but they went up to at least year 2000 the later ones were toned down a bit but either way they are still plenty machine for what you want to do .

The '88-'91 are the years with the bigger cam.
