Hello my name is Jason and I just bought my first 4 wheeler on facebook which is a 1994 Yamaha blaster for $1500, so yea no need to laugh at what I paid for it trust me, my friends and co-workers, already laughed more than enough for the whole message board! I had the time of my life for 5 mins before it cut off on me in 3rd gear and due to the fact that it only hand front breaks I almost went over the handlebars. I am not sure if the guy sold me some junk but it is what it is. I have watched about 15 hours of guys on youtube rebuilding their machines and I am a handy guy that would love to fix my own machine because people laugh at me and tell me it's going to cost more to fix the machine than it's worth. I am kinda sad about that but I see the rebuild kits sell for like $300 on ebay and when I watch guys work on these machines on youtube and it looks kinda easy minus the porting stuff I doubt that I will try that part on my own but im sure I can find a shop to do the port stuff for me for less than $200 which I find to be decent to pay someone who has skills to help me but hopefully they only charge $75-100 for that porting stuff which I hope I might not need. So basically I am a hard working guy looking to have a little fun in between working 16 hours 6 days a week because all the older people I know tell me I need to have some fun in my life instead of just working all the time, but I grew up poor and don't know anything else in life but to work hard and be honest so this forum is highly recommended by everyone and youtube so hopefully I can get some help and get this machine fixed for about $500 so that I can have a little fun in my lif, because I went to a local dealer near my job and the cheapest new 4 wheelers are $8,000 plus dollors which is a bit crazy to me but I know it's a recreactional thing so you can't really put a price on fun but that's just way out of my budget.
