looking at and fl350 today
« on: June 14, 2017, 06:01:10 AM »
Im going to look at and fl350 today (https://sanantonio.craigslist.org/snw/6175667859.html) first one, new to these sweet machines. its got a dirty fuel tank, start and goes into gear but doesn't run well. No idea on hours. Im going to bring a compression gauge to check the Engine.


I need tips on what to look for and when to walk away from it... . thoughts?

Could this be a good deal?

I tryed to get it up on my iPad but the site would not come up I would have liked to see what your thinking about buying . How much are they asking a good running FL350 goes for about 2000. And 3500. You said your going to check the comperssion 135lb a little lower our higher is fine . Check the frame see if its been rolled make sure it's not way out of joint . You said it doesn't run well that could be a dirty carb . If you do buy it make sure you do a leak test air will kill a 2stroke fast and a fuel test . Remember they are over 30years old takes some work to keep them going and you have to like do it . I wife bought me my 1st oddy a couple of years ago I knew nothing about 2strokes every thing I had were 4 stroke 1st thing I did was get a Manuel you can find a hard copy on ebay our you can download one but I learned the most by reading these forums and asking a lot of questions I never had a problem with one of my odyssey's the guys on the forums could not help me solve . There well worth it when you get to ride them
