You guys are going to kill me. We bought this for cheap and it was rough. But not this bad. Rode it while the 96 sat for three years. It makes a terrible grindin noise from the final drive. Uggggggggggggg.

Sucks but fixable. Either buy used assembly like you were going to, or cut off the axle, and tear down the diff and axle housing to see if those are usable. If so I would buy a good ring and pinion set, all new diff bearings and seal kit, good rear axle and hubs, with a new rear axle bearing kit, and slap it all back together.

Plastics get brittle and break... not much ya can do, we won't kill you. :)

yes new fluid but they dont work. tie rod ends and some other front rubber steerin thingy are dry rotting. And some times the head light dont work sometimes both on sometimes both off sometimes on high both on just left and on low both or just left. Rear ims are wollered out and needs new lug bolts left rear has only two.

Sounds like your just falling apart there bud, lol. Cleaning electrical connections, dielectric grease in them, replace the front rubber steery thingies, and a hand full of new lug nuts should be a good start.

No worries, its all fixable and well worth it. Even if you want a new bike your better off fixing it up... will be an easier resale.

That I'm not sure of, haven't done much with a old 250 to know, someone will be along though.

First squeeze off the brake line with a set of vice grips, and pull the brake lever. If it is hard, this tells you the master is good. If it builds no pressure, then the master is your first thing to rebuild.

If master is good, next part is to make sure brake fluid is going through the lines, pop one bleeder screw and hit the brakes. If fluid comes out, close the bleeder and then let off the brake. Try the next.

If thats good, the problem is in the brake drums, most likely a siezed or leaking wheel cylinder that will need to be cleaned and rebuilt.

yes the fourtrax 250 rear end will work. but you'll need the entire rear end assembly: (rear end, axle, hubs, brake assembly,etc.)
