Any advice would be great on a honda clone 110cc

5 posts in this topic

Son is looking at buying a honda atv 110cc i believe from a dealer up in brainerd..Brand new still in box..and the asking price is 399.99$ has anybody had any experience with these units..it seems very cheap for a new unit and he has saved up his money and really wants one..is he throwing his money away..would something like this always be breaking down..he's only 13..So any advice would be greatly appreciated..

Sounds awful cheap. If it's a real Honda and not a copy it should be a good deal. If it's a copy and not the real thing, well that's a different story

I agree with hafnutz.

If it's only a clone, buyer beware. If it's really a Honda, than I would have to question why it's so cheap.

At the age of 13, I would ahte to see you son waste his hard earned money on something that might break down prematurely and he's left with $400 of scrap metal.

Great job on a youngster saving up this kind of cash. I would hate to see him lose his hard earned cash on a bad investment.

I would have to say it is a china made clone. If your kid was younger and smaller I would say go for it, its only $400! But at the age of 13, he needs a bigger machine then that! If he keeps saving, or maybe dad doubles his money, there are alot of used machines that can be had for around $800

I believe it would be too small. I have a 110cc china made machine my daughter just got for her birthday. it is a good machine. we don't have many miles on it yet, but rides/starts/handles nicely. I will definetly make sure all the nuts/bolts are tight after the first couple operating hours, other than that, I have no doubt this thing will last through her and then her little sister.

    • They are drumming like crazy now. In fact, I even hear them at night. My wife said when she was a teenager growing up in rural Wisconsin, she always thought that drumming sound was the nearby powerstation.    
    • Lilac blooms are here, just haven't opened. Hearing some reports of good finds in the Houston and Lewiston areas of MN. I checked some new public areas today on the MN side. Could be decent later but too cold and wet right now. Will check some early season spots tomorrow but won't hope for much with the cold weather.
    • Nice!  Must have seemed forever waiting.
    • 6 months later and he is home
    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
