I haven't looked at it too much, but there doesn't seem to be any oily residue in the exhaust and the compression seems good. I have no intention of restoring this thing or even making it nice. I just want a beater old quad that I can use like a tractor around the property and let the kids tear up.
I have a really nice, original, '85 Honda ATC250ES Big Red 3-wheeler, but it's too nice and I can't bring myself to subject it to hard use. I don't think I'll have problems treating this hideous troll of a 4-wheeler like a tool.
