Quads do seem to change hands a lot as many buy them they realise they never get to use them or just can't ride them. Think mine has had 5 previous, it was 9 years old then. Guy I got it off had it less than a year. I'd be asking how long he had it and what the "date previous owner acquired" date on front of the logbook is to get an idea if its something dodgy.

It doesn't have to be a bad thing when it comes to toys BUT just bare it in mind, if he's saying it's solid all you can do is go see it and check it out as well as you can

He's had it for around 8 months he's said.
So in a way it's 1 owner a year the quad has had.

It's a long trip so if he's saying don't go if you're not sure then I'd maybe pass it up. That many owners, if it's that good he wouldn't be worried about you wasting a trip

True if I was to sell it 3-5 years down the line do you think I'll struggle with how many owners it'll have? I'll be the 9th owner.
Should still hold it's price as well right if I look after it, possibly lose £500-£1000 max?

If you know the number plate why don't you check the MOT background. That might give you a insight into if it's been looked after or not.

Yeah that's a sketchy mot history to me, lot of advisories, and a fail too. And the last pass shouldn't be a pass..... No speedo is an automatic fail unless you can show an accurate device for speed fitted by other means eg GPS device. Maybe avoid it. Sounds like it's had a hard life and only maintained where necessary

Haha thinking the same mate. I will leave that one even though looks nice in white.
He's telling me fibs I think on Facebook messenger he told me it has 1,700 miles on the clock and yet on 29 March 2016 it had 1,958 miles so in my head it has around 4000-6000 miles on the clock.

Looks like the quad has been messed around with.

Yeah that's insanely low. And if it's been ran without a speedo that's why. Would expect at least a couple thousand on it you can trust quad mileage generally as speedo get changed. Some mot misread km as miles. My bikes mot mileage history is all over place, one in a week should be funny, it was 9000 now it's 1100
