ATV guys chime in

Gonna buy a raptor 700 (used) within the next week or two, have a couple of questions. What are some type of things I should look out for? Things that would throw up red flags? also I have a 6" lift on my truck, would loading and unloading the raptor be an issue? I've HEARD its possible to stand the ATV on its back tires and get the front tires in and then lift the *** end up and push it into the bed. I know I could get ramps but I'm not so sure I'd like riding it into my rig when it sits as high as it does. Don't want to get a trailer either. Thanks for any input you guys might have for me.

If i were you id ditch the raptor and get a used yfz 450 or crf 450 faster and lighter less computer issues also. And yes you can load them like that works fine just gets old (by yourself)

i would just save a lil extra $$$$$, and buy a new one. I know several people that have had nothing but bad luck buying used quads. Espically a raptor. Those racin styles get dogged everytime they get started trust me.

if your really wanting to get it i would ask if he has ever taken it apart him self anything on the quad...if so ask what if its motor work then i would prolly stay away from it.. start it. make sure it starts right up and idles well. pull in the clutch put it in gear if it starts to move while clutch is pulled in and its in gear then the clutch has problems.. check the brakes. obviously check for any kind of leaks. look for dents under the frame and under the swing arm towards the rear. his tires and what kinda shape they are in can tell alot about his riding style. if they are missing chunks out of them then he prolly beat that quad to hell. also check the ehxaust pipe put your finger in there since its fuel injected and see if your finger is really black when you pull it out.... it shouldnt be if it is then i would stay away from it.

Why a quad, depends on riding style and area boys. Don't start the whole quads are for wimps and bikes are for badasses. Whatever. He didn't post to hear that.

But what everyone else that said anything relevant are right. There's gonna be aLOT to look out for with those. People beat the crap out of them. I'd go for a new YFZ or maybe a good 06 banshee (last year made I believe) Banshee's are sweet. Just as Banshee!
