need advice

Looking to buy 2 quads, considering TRX700 and TRX 250.
How are the 2008 TRX700 and 250, one for me other for my kids.

I am going to look at two used quads both are from year 2000 a 300 ex and a 400 ex, they are not running been sitting idle for 5 years they are supposedly in good shape. I have no clue about quads, but have been reading everything you have said about the TRX 700 and I am excited.

With the deals on TRX's I am chomping at the bit to buy the new ones, need advice

PS no mechanic here, I just want a solid fun bike.

bikes are cheap now, if looking at the older ones I would say a 2000 300 is worth about $800 to $1000 at max and the 400 $1000 to $1400 max. They will need the carbs cleaned and oil changed before you do any riding and you will more than likely need a new battery for both, they will shock you when you see the price of a new battery. I would get the deals on the new 700 and 250. you can buy a new 700 for about $4200 and a 250 $2300 cant go wrong

And don't forget the Maintenance you'll need to do on them since they've been sitting there for 5 years, depending where they've been sitting, you might need to tare them apart and clean/grease and lube them and even might have to replace some parts due to rust/dirt

If you can afford it, I would purchase new and the 700-250 are both good bike. How old is your son, he might out grow the 250 in a year or so depending on his age.

Notice that you're from NJ, look in PA, they usually have better deals there.

Something to consider is that the 250ex has a sport clutch and while that may be easier for a kid to learn and is a good solid machine. The 300ex may be a better choice for the following reason. At some point a kid will outgrow their starter quad and starting with a machine that's closer in operation to a machine that they'd want AFTER their starter quad will make for an easier transition to a larger quad. Learn to use a full clutch right from the start. IMO

Bird, I just bought a 700xx and 2 250ex's for the kiddos. Couldn't be hapier with the purchase. Right now all I can do is super tight technical trails on my own property and the 250's are perfect for that. The 700 is just too big and fast. I find I'm on a 250 about half the time, much to the chagrin of my kids.
