Hello, I am looking to buy my first quad and I found a 1985 polaris cyclone for $500. It hasn't been driven in 8 years and needs a carb clean and tune up. I was wondering if anyone knew any information about this model and any known problems?
I took off my carb today to get a good cleaning. I took out the 4 screws in the bottom of the float bowl and the float bowl will not come off. Have tried applying pressure but will not budge. Has anyone else had this problem? If so how did you get it off? Thanks

Can you get them to be even the least bit reliable? My cousin has a 440mxzx with low compression domes and I think he rebuilds it every one and a half years but he does do a lot of rejetting. What is your guy's opinion?
I'm looking for a snowmobile but am not sure what to get. My friend has a 500 and a 700 triple, the 500 is fun but once you get on the triple, the 500 seems too slow. I want a reliable and fast snowmobile that isn't too expensive.
