Any thoughts on value dealer said about 3500 just wondering if that seems right or if he just threw a number out.

hard to say a $ amount without more info.... how many miles? Does it have a winch, or any other accessories or aftermarket stuff? Power steering?

I look at a lot of used ATV's and own a couple myself. From a quick glance it looks like you have a covered seat with a rip in it which leads me to believe its either got a lot of miles so the original had to be covered up? Hard to tell from the picture. Exhaust pipe looks rusty so its either seen a lot of mud or when it did see mud it wasnt washed off. It has after market tires so its also possible the stockers were worn down and replaced. Or they could have just been put on there and OEM tires taken off? Again hard to say with out more details but that's my impression after taking a quick look at the pic.

Also your better off selling private party than trading in at the stealership. Look at that craigs guys list in  your area and try to find some similar and go from there.

How do fluids look/smell? Air filter/box? Spark plugs? Service records? What kind of oil did he run? How do brake pads/hubs look? With other things that were noted by rundrave, IMO, that price is not exactly a bargain....

We have one exactly like that.  Ours only has about 1500 miles on it though.  I also have a 2002 Polaris 700.  Like them both but the Grizzly has a smoother ride and steers easier.  We put tracks on the Grizzly for winter to get to the fish house and back. We can see the fish house from our house so not many miles to go.  What I like about the Polaris is to shift from forward to reverse you just push forward or pull back on the shifter.  Great for plowing snow.  The Grizzly you have to hit the brake and wiggle the shifter to get in the right gear.  No big deal but not as simple as the Polaris.  Rundave made a bunch of great points..

It has 1257 miles on it. Seat is covered it cracked from kneeling on it when it was like -10. Always had only yamaha oil in it. Has a winch, yamaha windshield,  rear cargo hauler, took oem tire off cause i liked the look of aftermarket better. Exhaust pipe is rusty and pretty much has been since less then a year old. Only work ever done besides oil changes is carb got redone at dealer. I didn't know if the price was high or low that why i was asking.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
