I'm looking to get my son a new quad. If anyone in PA or close to PA has one for sale let me know. A 250cc would be about perfect. Thanks

Sorry, guess I should have been more specific. He wants a sport quad. Thanks for the quick response though.

He's not that experienced as a rider.

I think the right 250 could grow with him with some modifications as he gets more experienced...

lol i payed for my 700xx.. but they did by my recon for me
Wow at 15 you were able to pay for a 700xx. I guess your parents have done a great job with you. Can I ask how or what type of job you had to make this possible? I have a 15 year old here, and he can put gas in his, let alone pay for or do upkeep, maintenance ect. Maybe I should ship him to your parents for the summer and remold him, lol. great job you must be alot more mature than my older son of 19. I cant get the video controler out oh his hand long enough to go for a ride. Sorry bout the hi jack.

Thats a good deal, work hard and paid cash! Im in same boat as Britalican. I finaced mine for 36 months @3.99%.

But back on topic, I think for a 11yr old a 250r would be more than enough power till he's atleast 15-16. and then send him to 700xxmaniac, to work a few months and he can buy what he wants.

3.99%?!?!? I have basically perfect credit, and they only gave me 11.99%

I think if I worked hard all summer I wouldnt waste money on a stroker(how many will yake offense to that). I am gonna buy my 11 year old son a raptor 250. The new 250's are alot faster than the older ones. And regardles what eerybody thinks, I know grown men who I wouldn't let on a 50, let alone something with power. Some people/kids don't need that much. I would see which atv fits him best, the 400+ bikes might be physically to large for him to be able to work all controls, which wouldn't be good.

But he (and I)also like the wolverine 450, might get that instead, not to mention my gf likes them to.
