A buddys new LT230
« on: August 18, 2013, 07:33:07 pm »
I received a call late last night to look at this 87 LT230 with my good friend. We picked this gem up from the original owner who had ALL the paper work on everything done/bought for it. A quick carb clean and fresh air filter (previous owner supplied) and it runs like a champ. This was my buddy's first quad. so it brought back some memorys for him.

BIG TIME SEXY! COMMAND him to take GOOD care of it. Seriously.

Could you take some pictures of the handlebar/headlight area for me? I'm trying to figure out how Suzuki would've used that white plastic guard (in 25Y Marble Science Yellow of course) on the LT500R for which it was designed. :3

Super clean! Makes me think of R2D2 with that color scheme and light fairing.

I know this is an old thread, but I love the look of that 230s. I just found a headlight like this on eBay and
plan on putting it on my LT250S.
