I recently picked up a 2000 Rancher 350 4x4 ES and I love it....despite the many problems that keep coming up.
It was sold to me with the understanding that everything worked great, but that's not entirely true. The biggest issue is that the guy before me had no idea what he was doing and had a staple in place of the 30amp main fuse in the box!
I'll make a separate post for that but for now I'm also planning on rebuilding the carburetor, getting the steering lubricated and investigating the oil cooler (seems to get hot quick.)
Stay tuned....

A quick top tip.... When rebuilding your carb don't be tempted to buy the cheaper Chinese rebuild kits, they don't work. Use OEM or a known good brand. China and carbs just don't end well.

welcome to the site, and MOST guys selling ATV's today LIE thru there teeth, and DON"T disclose things they know are wrong or they did to it!

very few folks honestly sell GREAT condition atv's, all the more so older one's they don't owe any money on, there older and in good running condition, they really don';t need to sell them if they had them this long
they tend to sell when problems become too often, and they don't wish to deal with them, OR they sank the atv and want to bail while its still running. and then make up lies about this or that for WHY selling
buying used is and will always be a gamble, where more guys seem to loose than win, , and all the more so in how folks use atv's these days!

Thanks mrbb, I was afraid that would happen. All in all I think once I get it sorted out It'll run great for me. All the major elements seem to be working well. It's just a lot of (hopefully) little things at the moment.
