just bought a 1990 polaris 250 trailboss for 600 dollars from a friend.  its 2wd and the motor was just rebuilt with rings and gaskets.  The oil injector is bad so u have to mix gas and oil, and The front left tire leaks air.  but it runs good and is tons of fun. when i got it home yesterday i rode it around for couple hrs then i washed it and made it all perdy.  My brother matthew ( he has downs symdrome) then came outside and wanted a ride.  so we went in the woods and hit some mud holes.  I rather see a smile on his face then a clean quad

I have a 96 polaris 300 that the pump hose came off. Do not use a Wisco piston if you ever need to rebuild it. Their pistons are tapered .020 from the skirt to the head of the piston and rattle like crazy. Been there and done that. I like mine otherwise.

I've got a 91 350 Warrior that I traded for an dead XS1100 Dresser, and an old XT500.

 

I put all new suspension bearing/bushings in, and a new throttle cable. Been waiting for a chance to get it out.
