hi, a friend offered to sell his 2016 YXZ 1000r 400 miles for $8k
We are testing it for the weekend. It has been rolled 3x and clutch swapped to a racing type. Seems like a killer rig for the price. I seen a post about top 3 mods. Is this a cage on it already...it has 5pt harnesses and what is a reflash? Hubby is an offroad specialist at his shop but we're dipping our toes from Toyota's to sxs's. Lots to learn for me I'm sure, its not like my FJ Cruiser. Whats this paddle thingy on steering wheel? I'm seriously new at this & new here be kind 馃槀

Seems like a fair deal based on the mileage. The true question is the nature of the roll-overs. High speed spectacular or slow speed flops onto a side..... Assuming the cage on the unit is the original cage (that is the stock cage and not an aftermarket cage), it would seem that they may have been more of the slow speed flop nature. If there is no real frame damage, then I would say it is a good deal. Does it drive ok? Any hard pulls exhibited while driving or braking? Cracked paint at frame joints is indicative of flexure in that area. While we all love our machines, they do not hold value very well partly because of these situations. Sounds like this guy is accepting that fact and pricing accordingly. I think totalled ones can go for near $8k. So this seems like an opportunity as long as the "rolls" didn't leave lasting damage. Both of my machines have been through several (>4) roll events of varying severity and have survived, albeit requiring cage, a-arm, half-shaft, body plastic replacements as a result. They both handle fine after repair. It really is a matter of what happened or not and what bent or not and how well it was repaired afterwards.... The floppy handle is a reverse lock-out lever. You can not get into reverse gear without having that lever pulled towards you. Hope this helps...

Yamaha doesn鈥檛 call it a roll cage . They call it a roof support and that鈥檚 all it鈥檚 good for in my opinion. Do a search on yxz rolled cage damage and you will see how inadequate the roof support really is in a crash

My friends Maverick was 鈥渞olled鈥 at the dunes lightly about 3 times from inexperienced drivers and other than few minor plastics and things it was fine. They were slow speed nothing serious. Same as Toyota鈥檚 and any Jeep or off-road machine of choice. But do a good inspection for stress cracks or paint cracks. 8k seems like a fair deal. Plus if it鈥檚 a friend or buddy he sounds like he鈥檚 upfront about even being rolled. Not know a seller they might not even tell you.. buy it enjoy it.

Awesome thanks for info. Slow rolls by their teen and the Father. Drives well, handles good, plastics still good. Appreciate ya! Lever doesn't work.
