This will be 350X number four. It has issues. The top end was just rebuilt but the clutch is messed up and it needs a carb. Being on CL means there are probably more issues as well but it’s worth it.
I’m trading even up for my 200X which makes me a bit sad. That 200 is a super reliable machine. Starts first kick every time in -15 temps or even after sitting for a month or so. As it should, really. I put a lot of time into it to make it that way. He’s just a tad too small for a person of my *ahem* stature.
I think “Elephant riding a Mouse” was uttered at least once during an outing.
The 350X makes the same power as a modern 400EX quad, has a better gearbox and weighs 150lbs less. These are good things. The only thing that bugs me is that I may be counting my Ducks before they hatch with this being a CL deal. Saturday is a way off yet.
For those that are interested.
The CB550 is coming home the weekend of the 18th. They have so much stuff they want gone I need to make two trips. I’m considering renting a box truck at this point because it’s 7 hours round trip from Dubuque to Chicago but it’s going to be worth it.
