    That's a much better looking quad for the money. See if the seller has proof of some of the new parts bought and any engine work done. I'd see if he'd take $ 2,300.00 and go from there. Its worth checking out if you have the $$ to spend.

    The honda will handle better. Your lincs have no description, just pics. One thing that has to be kept in mind is that the Banshee doesn't handle all that well, needs shocks at minimum. It takes at least twice the skill and money to tune and mod. And you'll get flamed to no end for "back yard" mods like I see on Blasters.

    You can get a real nice Shee for the money you are willing to spend. Keep looking. Dont jump on the first one you buy. The blue one is nice, but alot of guys sell them cheap. Be sure to do a compression test before you buy. If you can score one that is ported or have a set of CPI pipes on it, that will save you a bit of money there. CPI's pull like Toomey's downlow, but rev out alot farther.

    I would defiantly call him and use some smart words to see if he can come down on his price. You never know. When I bought my blaster the guy had 800 bucks on it on craigs. I called him and asked if he would take 600 for it he said yes. I told him to send pics. Once I saw pics I said the bike looked like shat and its not worth 600. I said i cant do any more for 500 for that piece. So he said he would think about it and call me back. Sure enough he called back and said the hell with it. So I drove over to buy it. He gets it out and it wont start. We look in the air box and it got a rats nest in it. I tell him its trashed and Ill only give 400 for it. I ended up getting the bike for 400 which is half the the original price.

    Zilla or Banshee those things require alot more work and matenence to get running right just make sure your ready for the upgrade, i rode banshees but never zillas, and banshees are badass but its hard as sh*t to find parts for zillas!
    i say banshee:D

    the bike is only reliable as the person performing the maintenance. I think its safe to say that about any machine.
