Guy I know put one up on a local farcebook page, I PM'd him and we ended up trading a rifle and some ammo for it... It needs work, but it starts and drives and everything pretty well works.

Now I will be able to get around to parts of the property that I haven't seen in years.

Its a 95ish Yamaha 250 Timberwolf 4WD

Congratulations. I've had extremely good luck with Yamaha motorcycles. Tires, batteries, oil and fuel. Never a malfunction. I had a valve adjustment on one because it was part of a "service interval". Kind of a waste of money since it wasn't running poorly and I saw no difference when I got it back. I read a report from 2012? showing Yamaha the best for reliability based on repair frequency. They even edged out Honda. If they built a car, I'd buy one. If Hi Point built a car, I wonder what it would resemble? Mabey an old Dodge Dart. Square, utilitarian and functional. I like my Yamahas so much, I have a Yamaha piano and a Yamaha receiver. I'm jealous Walt.

Looks nice Walt :great:
We've got 3 of them, all Hondas.
We don't use them a lot any more, but when you need one, nothing else is quite as handy.
Been thinking about trading them in on a UTV, but I hate to get rid of them.

My buddy bought a side by side. The dam thing is as big as a car...and LOUD. He could have saved thousands and bought an old Suzuki Samurai. Walt's makes more sense. It'll go places where the big Utility vehicles won't fit.

Here's a couple of mine
The one on the left is a 2005 Honda Recon 250 the other one is a 98 Honda Fourtrax 300
They go fast enough for us, and they'll go just about anywhere.
We also have a beat up old 89 Honda Fourtrax 300 that's 4wd
Ignore the weirdo posing with the EBR

I thought HPT is where the weirdo's were supposed to go??
You know - unlike a lot of other places on the internet...
HPT is for us weirdo's that are polite, intelligent, well mannered and always showing consideration for others. :great: :D


Walt - this is what I have to say about 4-wheelers...
People say motorcycles are dangerous - But any brain dead turd can ride a 4-wheeler! :shock:
And that's not good!!

I know of many folks around here who spent a lot of time in the hospital because of them - and maybe a lack of common
I have an older-then-me cousin that nearly killed himself on one of those damn things!

He was going a little too fast across one of his own pastures and hit a wash-out in the tall grass that he didn't see.
And then it was all ass-holes and elbows for him...
Messed up his 4-wheeler - Had to have his kids help him run the place while he was healing up.

The other was a more minor accident another older-than-me cousin had.
Don't know all the details for that one - a few days in the hospital and he was back at it.

Several years ago a rancher had some cow get out and they were in the ditch along the highway.
And - you guessed it - he drove up on the highway and got whacked by a passing car. :shock:

My SIL with his spraying business had 3 of those 4-wheelers and a sid-by-side...
And he's rolled his 4-wheeler a couple of times himself.

When my daughter was younger, some a-hole on his new Can-Am 4-wheeler rocket gave her a ride.
They crashed and burned and she had a big bruise on her ass and leg for a week or so.

So - don't be jumpin' over shit and tryin' do do wheelies - you're too old for that!!
And No chasing coyotes or rabbits or deer across unfamiliar terrain - never a good Idea!!
And if you wanna see how fast it'll go - find a nice stretch of smooth road and giver hell.

So please!! Be careful on that damn thing!!
We need you to keep an eye on us... :cool:

Also, if you are used to riding dirt bikes, remind yourself to keep your feet on the pegs.
You can run over your own foot, break your leg or be otherwise embarrassed.

Trust me guys, I'm too old to take getting hurt lightly.. I am really timid riding it... Don't feel the need to be ramping small hills or anything like that LOL. I have a customer that has rolled his twice one time it landed on him and he was trapped for a couple of hours until someone found him.

I've had mine on 2 wheels but never rolled it (yet)
I tend to hit the driveway a little fast some times and slide it around the corner. I know I shouldn't, but it's kinda fun.
I don't like riding them on steep side hills, and going up hills, I've had to lay on the gas tank to keep it on the ground.
Coming down, I've had to lay way back on the rack.
They are fun and useful as along as a guy is careful

I went through the tall grass in our pasture and found some deep ruts the people left when they changed out the hi line poles this spring.. luckily I was going slow because I could not see the ground. Good thing it was 4WD or I would have had to get someone to pull me out..... If I had been going fast I'm sure I would have flipped.. I'm crippled up enough now without adding to it. Slow and steady, that's me.

Slow and steady - Walt, thats the best way to be!! :great:
I'm sure it is a lot of fun to cruise around on that thing...
Can you license a 4-wheeler there and drive it on the street??
There's a lot of them on the road around here!!

And - even after my previous cautionary post - I would like to have one - especially with a little plow on the front for moving snow.

I seriously looked at buying a new Suzuki 700 KingQuad instead of my Dual-Sport DR-650 Suzuki motorcycle.

I had a friend I worked with at time that thought I was insane for buying a motorcycle instead of a 4 wheeler.
He might a been right - You can haul more stuff with a 4 wheeler!!

But - the 4-wheeler was substantially more money - around 75% more expensive.
And I wanted a motorcycle anyway...

I should do exactly what Walt did and find a used 4-wheeler and see if I like it - There's a lot of them out there!!
A newer fuel injected one would be nice - no choke and it should fire right up and run when its cold.

This "4-wheeler" craze decimated dirt bike motorcycle sales. It started out with the 3-wheeler...
Any of you guys remember those - or maybe had one?? Honda was the biggie with 3-wheelers.
Notice they're not around anymore??
It's because they quit making them - they were outlawed!!
While I don't necessarily agree that was the thing to do - There were too many people getting hurt on them.

My older brother had one for a while - It had a Tecumseh motor in it - So it wasn't no fancy Honda.
You know - if I didn't have 4 older brothers, I wouldn't be near as smart as I think I am now!!
I could have lived with out the constant torment and beatings that went along with it though...

Anyway - my brother got it cheap because it came with a "ventilated" engine case and a broken connecting rod.
Somehow, he managed to get the chunk of engine case welded back in and replaced the broken parts - and it ran!! Ran really good too.

But after he and the rest of us brothers rode it for a while - he sold it.
We all crashed and burned on that thing and he finally decided to get rid of it... And not for our safety either!!
He was concerned the rest of us were going trash the thing out!! It was a legitimate concern...
So he sold it for a tidy profit... Smart man.

Just as a little side note - I think I started writing this post 2 days ago!!
I fell asleep when I started on it and didn't get back to it until now... :Smile3:

I wouldn't mind a 4 wheeler but I always preferred being on 2 wheels. I had a couple old Yamaha 3 wheelers many moons ago, lots of fun.

40 years ago I was riding with a guy who had a pair of those Honda big 3 wheelers. He jumped a furrow, and I wussed out and tried to take it slow. I got the belly of the thing hung up, so I put my feet down and pushed off with my legs. When it caught traction, it rode up my left leg dragging me off the trike and under the tire. The big knobby tire proceeded to beat the hell out of my calf into the buddy noticed I wasn't behind him and circled back to help. If I had been riding alone, who knows how it would have ended. Like the carnival worker always says Walt, "Keep your arms and legs inside the ride at all times".
