I was visiting with my neighbor Saturday and he said, you want this Yamaha Big Bear, 350, 4WD for $200? The unit has been sitting for 3 years and appears to be in nice shape, and looks like this one 1992 Yamaha Big Bear 350 for sale in Plattsburgh, NY | BVC Racing (518) 563-3699

I'm not very concerned about the $200, but don't want to waste time on something so, curious thoughts on this particular model, assuming I can get it going relatively easy and serviced completely???

Hell, for 200 you can turn around and parts it out and get more in return.

Good machines, definitely not a Honda, but they are very reliable design. I have serviced 2 that had over 10k miles on them still ticking along on stock bores.

at $200 I wouldn't even think about it. itll sell in 30 minutes on craigslist for that price if you have a change of heart.

I'm 100% in agreement. I wouldn't be able to get my wallet out fast enough.

The early Yamahas were quite a machine IMO, I'd have it for sure, tidy it up and sell it on :)

the Yamaha 350 and 400's are great bikes , we have a couple that ride with us , they pull good and take a beating ---------- they hold their prices around here , you vey seldom see one go for less than $1,500 and up to $3,000 ---- I would definitely take the Yamaha over a Can-Am , Arctic Cat , Kawasaki , Suzuki or Polaris

What's wrong with it? With such low mileage, at the price, you'd assume that something is toast. Still, you could get more than $200 back in parts sales. I agree with the majority here- go for it.

I think that bike suffered from lack of use , we see a lot of people around here that buy bikes and don't really have no where to ride them close by , they sit in the garage for years and never get ridden , the fuel goes sour and the battery dead ---- probably all that is wrong with that one
