ATV needs a new home

Used and broken ATV needs a new home.

Now that the Kubota has proven itself we need to find a new home for the ATV.

It's broken....our neighbor thinks it might be the timing belt.

The price would be cheap if someone thinks they can fix her.

Do you mean the CVT belt? That should be relatively easy to fix since it is meant to be replaced at regular intervals.

Or do you mean the camshaft drive? To connect the crankshaft to the camshafts, most motorcycle engines use a timing chain, lubricated by the engine oil. If that is broken, you have a major repair on your hands. And it might have caused a valve/piston collision meaning additional damage in the form of bent valves.
