97 Polaris Scrambler 400cc 4X4

I was offered an awesome deal on a scrambler but I don't know much about them. Could any of you guys that owned one give me some feedback. I'm picking it up as an extra bike for the kids and fiance to ride.

I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.

My cousin had one, and a few buddies had them. Worst quad I've ever seen. Keep some money stashed away for parts & repairs.

Is there any major known issues, any specifics?

I think this is the case with ALL PooLaris's. I have 4 buddies that have newer model polaris's (2008-2010) and they are ALWAYS working on them, just random stupid stuff.

Is that a 2 stroke? I know alot of the old 400 were. Well I have a 4 stroke 500 4x4. And you can litterly beat the stank out of it, and it keeps runing. My cousin has a 199? 400 2x4 2 stroke runs stoung. Only thing I've had to replace on my 01 was tires, breaks, cv boots, hub seals, front sprocket, and one half shaft. Not to bad, for a 10 year old quad.

Never had one, but I have rode with quite a few. Only things I remember standing out were the first gen belts got wet easy and one guy had his oil injector quit and blew it up. Those things were the shit for mud drags back in the day.
