I have had this quad for about 5 years now and including the purchase price my parents and I have put about $3500 into this machine. This is a Blue 2000 Yamaha Blaster 200cc 2 stroke with a lot of upgrades that I personally made on the quad since I've had it, I did buy a new chain, sprocket (for more acceleration), new carburetor and fuel tank, new tires (front and back), the tires still have about 95% thread left, new handle bars, new handle bar grips.
About 2 years ago me and my buddy blew a piston and for my birthday in July of 08' when I was up at school, my parents took my quad in to a local shop to get professional repaired and upgraded so now the engine is bored 30 over with a new WISECO piston and rings, new BOYSEN power reeds, new air filter, all new gaskets and rings. Also they removed the oil injector and canister from the rear and now you just have to mix racing oil with the fuel and it runs like a beast and smells like a racing quad.
As for appearance the quad is in excellent condition, the exterior body is all in outstanding condition and is all covered by about 20 stickers from random part companies and looks really cool. The quad has always ran great for me since the day I bought it, I got it in basically brand new condition. I also just purchased a BRAND NEW seat cover for the quad, so I will include the old cover with an extremely small rip and the Brand New seat as well with purchase.
As for why I am selling the quad is because I have been attending Central Michigan University in Mt. Pleasant for 4 years now, so my quad has basically just been sitting in my garage back home for the last few years, and I usually just start it up and take it for a quick drive when I come home every few weekends. But I really don't have the time anymore to ride or go on any trips at all so I could really just use the cash. I currently live in Hartland, MI ; for those of you who don't know its by Howell, Brighton, Fenton area. I also have a summer cottage up in Silver Lake about a 1/2 mile from the Silver Lake sand dunes, so delivery is not that big of a deal. However, if you do want to take the quad for a test drive and check it out in person, it may be a drive, but I assure you it will be well worth it.
I can tell you right now that this quad is worth about $1500-$1900 with all of the upgrades and parts I have bought for the quad over the years. But like I said the quad is not being used at all and the value is definitely not increasing as time passes by so i would rather just get rid of the quad and use the money to help pay for school.
So I will be completely honest with you I am hoping to get about $1100 for the quad just because of all the work and upgrades done to the quad and the extremely low amount of hours the quad has actually been used. But if you were to bring me $900 CASH I would definitely load the quad in the back of your truck and done deal. And by saying $900 Cash I mean $900 cash, that is the lowest I will possibly go, because this quad is worth way more than that, I just don't have the time to deal with this right now.
If you have any questions at all or are interested in purchasing or taking this quad for a Test Run please just contact me.
Please contact me for any info. at all. Thanks for you interest and have a great day Good Luck
