    well this is what the ad reads

    1986 Honda TRX250R QUAD. Very clean for a twenty two year old bike, UNFORTUNATELY IT HAS A BROKEN SPROCKET BOLT, so it needs a new counter shaft and sprocket bolt. Honda part 23221-HB9-770 and 90103-426-000 ($85.78 for both from Service Honda dot com). Also, leaks a couple drips over long periods of time and has a small exhaust leak, but I have the replacement o-ring and springs. Otherwise, it starts upon the first couple kicks. This thing is a beast. Two-Stroke power, don’t let the engine size fool you. It will easily give a TRX450r or other newer 4-strokes a run for the money. Newer Aluminum rims, plastics, decals. Awesome suspension. I am selling because I have too many projects and not enough time. California DMV title is clean. Would definitely be a good race quad. Go buy a new TRX450r for seven thousand or you fix the broken sprocket bolt and have one mean desert bike for a third of the price. Paypal only. LOCAL PICK UP ONLY! I will not ship! Must be picked up with seven days of auction ending. Quad sold as-is. Quad is listed locally, so I reserve the right to end the auction early.

    from what i read from the ad it is the counter shaft in the tranny which mean the whole engine has to be disassembled and the tranny broken down. not hard to do with a manual for the first time go at it. but ask the guy who is selling it if that is the shaft in the tranny. i can't get service hondas to work on my mac.

    very well written ad...almost verges on overrated ,...maybe ?
    but BTW if some work or maintenace/repair work scares ya ...
    maybe the 250R is not the bike for you ..
    since any R you bought would be used at this point
    no offense intended ,..just sharing real thoughts here

    Depending on how bad it is and how bad it has been messed with, he might not be able to get it out. In other words, If it could have been gotten out, it would have been by now I'm sure! Which means, a case split is probably the only fix.

    Ghost,
    I didn't see a price in the listing but depending on how reasonable it is, it might not be a bad idea to buy it and tear it down if the price is right, or if you can haggle him down. All I am saying is that I paid 7000+ a couple years ago for my old Drag Banshee only to have it throw a crank bearing 2 days after I got it. Sometimes people lie and things aren't as reliable as they seem in the pictures, spending more money doesn't necessarily mean it will last any longer. If you can get a good deal, buy it and rebuild it or have someone rebuild it the way you want it. That way you know all the bearings, gaskets, seals, rings are fresh so that you aren't spending triple the money when a five year old wrist pin bearing goes "On that 'fresh' motor you just bought", as an example. Just my opinion.

    Very well put teddy.. Thanks for the reality check. He wants 2250 for it. It's on evilbay if you want more details. I wonder how much a complete rebuild kit runs these days. I'm also looking at a 87 on craigslist for 2500. Here's the ad for it tell me what you think if you don't mind."This is a very clean, well cared for bike. Some of the extras include sand tires, nerf bars, air cleaner, pipe, ported, cool head and more. This is a fast and fun sport/race quad that can still compete with the best stuff on the showroom floor today."
