Technical aspects of Inspecting ATV Bikes for Sale

  • Check Engine Oil

You must know how to check engine oil of your ATV. Pull out the measuring stick and take a look at what you are purchasing. If you find dirty oil then re-consider buying the ATV. Also check the air filter as you need to get assured that you are getting what you are paying for! Don’t go for the exterior beauty of the machine! Check the internal things like engine oil, air filter and engine coolant.

From the exterior, the ATV might look perfect. But an abused vehicle will show the signs by checking things like the oil, air filter, and engine coolant.

  • Check Engine Coolant

Before starting the machine up make sure to check the engine coolant, but make sure the engine is cold else it might cause serious burns and injuries while trying to remove the radiator cap. If the engine is cool then check for debris and dirt inside and make sure that the coolant liquid is not low. If any of these things is spotted then understand that the owner was not taking good care of the machine and it might be loss for you to invest on it.

  • Start the Machine Up

Once you are assured that the ATV you have chosen is fit internally, then make sure to start it yourself for a test drive. In some cases the seller tries to start the machine for you out of chivalry however this could be a sign of hiding any flaw of the machine! If you find it difficult to start the machine or if there is some strange noise during the start then do ask the seller about it. If the seller tries to avoid the question or does not have any answer to it then you must take the ATV for an expert inspection which will help you in finding out any deeper issues with the machine.

  • Check the Tires

If you find the tires are worn out, old or bare then make sure to reconsider your choice! Although you might make it a reason for negotiating price but it is not a great deal for long run!
