I have been lurking around there. I think I am going to look at one tommarow. Rebuilt last year, everything PC'd, looks new.

If you are going to trail ride get a Blaster (03 or earlier), if you are going to MX get a TRX250R (88 or earlier). If you are going to do a little of both get a LT250R (88 or earlier).

If you have to get a Blaster and put a 240 kit on it to hang with 250Rs, you might as well just get a 250R, this way you will have a liquid cooled quad. If you buy a 250R you can always get a 300 kit for it as well and once again say bye bye to a 240 Blaster.

Test on stock 2 stroke quads showed the Tecate4 was the fastest, but handled the worst, they are pretty rare and hard to come by due to limited production. The TRX250R was the best all around performer, very expensive these days too. The LT250R is just as fast as the TRX250R, handled better than the Tecate4 but not quite as good as the TRX250R, they are easier to find and cheaper to buy because they were produced longer. The best years LT250Rs to get are 88-92. If you have to settle for a 87 keep in mind parts are more difficult to get. The 85-86 models had a less powerful engine and weighed more.

I have learned to buy what you want, versus what is available. In time you will want a bigger faster quad, like a Banshee or Raptor 700.

I am not getting a 2-stroke. I want a 660R or 700R. Thanks for the info!

Save the money and get a 700. 660s were carbureted, 700s are fuel injected.

There is not a whole lot to be afraid of. Maintenance is cheaper, aftermarket parts are cheaper. A 2 stroke carburetor has an air screw instead of a fuel screw, works exact opposite of a 4 stroke carb. Main difference is you add 2 stroke oil to the gas. Of course they sound different, lil' smoke from the exhaust, and have more top end than bottom end. My plan is to keep my 88 LT250R and get a LTZ400 later and keep both.
