I am new to this site, and have had my quad sitting in my garage for years. yes, YEARS!! so i have no experience working on bikes, I assume I need to dump the gas, change the spark and see if it starts? also My tires are flat, I have new ones but I'm not sure how to remove the old ones from the rim... Help please!! anyone have an idea how much this bike might be worth both 1. in this condition, and 2. if it was fixed up a bit

I have changed tires on a recon, won’t make that mistake again. Check with your local tire dealers or wally world. They charge around five bucks a tire well worth the money imo.

thank you. wally world meaning walmart correct? I added a link with some pics, if you have a minute to check them out, any feedback would be appreciated as far as how much you think this bike might be worth...

If it has been sittin for years you will need to go through the carb the 2stroke fuel mix i am sure it has gummed up and has the carb stopped up, the reeds are prabable brittle, the piston may be stuck and if it does turn over the rings will probably be stuck or have collapsed, i might be wrong but i raced an 86 TRX250r years ago and know 2 strokes, would love to have another one to play with but not going to spend what people want for them 2500 to 3000 just not worth it when todays 4 strokes will just out rum them. and welcome to the forums.

so in this condition, obviously i'd have to take a price cut, what would be a fair price? maybe two thousand? not asking if you want to buy it, but what would seem reasonable to ask?
thanks for the input

I'll change out the gas and spark and see what happens..

You would just have to find the right person wanting one, i would ask $2000 but would consider $1500 as a good price not running.

I Agree^^^ the cosmetics are great that will be a good selling point, but as 69quad stated.. 2-strokes don't compete with the 4 strokes of today technology has come a long way, but you got a heck of a nice machine try www.bikebandit.com and www.denniskirk.com for parts you find it's really not so bad to repair and if you need any help there are plenty of guys here that know their stuff.

Welcome to the forums too.

If you dont know much about working on them I would put it up for sale. Try pumping up the tires that are on it and see if they will hold air and let the next person worry about changing them. Check around your area and see what they are selling for and go from there. Welcome to the forum
