Advantages fun while it lasts
Disadvantages impossible to get the right parts.
Well a bit of a mixed bag really. My first quad and i got a lot of enjoyment out of it , using it more or less every day. It was great fun as i began to fall in love, but then, just as in all whirlwind romances, the cracks bagan to show. almost all of the parts were coated in rust, despite the fact that it was kept under cover between use. It bacame very sluggish to start even with choke and would not sit ticking over but immediately die. It was also prone to overheating as it was air cooled. Then after two and a half years it really did die - The differential casing (a kind of gear box where the drive shaft joins the back axle) snapped, draining all the oil inside. this effectively locks the rear axle, so your not going anywhere. This however is not the real problem, as wear and tear is to be expected. The real problem is that it is IMPOSSIBLE to get spare parts for these quads, and as the differential is made of cast aluminium, it cannot be welded well enough to cope with the stress (i tried). In short although it may seem like a cheaper option at the time to buy a chinese import, they have a fixed lifespan and when something goes wrong they are redundant. you have been warned. (I am not the only person i know with this problem!)
