I owned an Ď89 in mid Ď90ís and had to sell for funds to get married.  Iíve wanted a garage queen for several years so my plans with this one is dress as nice as possible with my budget.  I have about 4 grand to put into it.  Iím hoping to use the info on this site to help me.  Iíll keep updating it as I have a few things to bolt on this week.

Really appreciate the welcome!  I was on the FB page but some guy got butthurt Bc I lowballed an offer on some wheels.  It was really weird.  I received a ďpmĒ stating the group did not need people like me ďtrying to devalue peopleís itemsĒ. 

Iím not sure about this place, but I work in America where things are valued at what another person is willing to pay.  I meant no disrespect and I take none when my customers in business low ball me.  I simply thank them and move on. 

Anyways, thanks again and Iím looking forward to learning from you guys.

Probably the same one if you offer a part for free to someone you get banned because you didn't put a price on it...(Not me)....Ridiculous.....I thought that was the deal with 250r sites was to help people out....

Welcome abord! I feel this forum will be a great experience for you. It has been a very drama free place for me to find parts and friends(for the most part).  There are a few organized group rides that are planned out through this site. I hope you find what you need here.

So here is kinda what I'm thinking.  Because I'm wanting a quad that will not be ridden a lot and i'm not racing, I'm thinking of a *** engine and a PT eliminator pipe.  Mostly I want a fresh engine with the chrome head and pipe.  Thoughts??
