    Default My son just bought a sled, $300.

    1980 Yammie Enticer. Totally gone through, new bearings in the track and new slides too. Little scuff on the corner and it's mostly been stored, 1580 miles. When I first saw it I was like, *no, not another beater* but he was just delighted and amped up, then I looked at it,....just wow.
    It has a bad scuff in the front as seen in the pic but other than that it is pure mint.20200913_164152.jpg

    I had an '81 Enticer 300 when I was 12. Fun little sled. Very quick. Top end around 65 mph (speedo reading). (70 mph going downhill, on ice, and with a strong tailwind ) It could take the corners like it was on rails because it is light and nimble. Just under 300 lbs. dry. My father and I could load on the trailer by lifting it ourselves. (He had the front of course.) Not much of a ride. You felt every pump on the trail. However, you could serpentine all over trail to miss some of the bumps. 100 mile day is pushing it unless everything is well groomed. He will love it! Keep it well maintained. You cannot find a good little sled like that one now-a-days.

    To your son - Don't let Dad drive it. He is to big for it. It will throw him off and run into an oak tree. Like what happened to mine. Also, I use to find icy roads and get up to 20 mph and put it into a drift, and once I was facing backwards, slam on the throttle and do backwards burnouts seeing how far backwards I could travel before going the opposite direction. You should not do that!

    This thing is in amazing shape. He is out in the garage right now loving it and taking apart the carb.
    I won't touch it, it is his and he got it because of the vintage coolness factor(and price). He will baby it and has a 2018 RMK 800 155 to pound on.

    I did sit on it and the suspension seems nonexistent.

    Excellent buy! He'll have a blast & be able to run that for a few years & sell it for what he bought it for! or, keep it forever! Nice pick. -Mezz

    that is a score..........I just picked up a 1980 Enticer 250 for my son. I am going have more than $300 into getting the hood repainted and a new set of decals. Just put together my wish list of needed parts last night (carbides, hyfax, new push button for kill switch and a few other things) not to bad. Thinking next weekend it will be pulled into the garage to start going through it.

    this is the first Yamaha I have owed, anyone have a good set of directions on removing/cleaning the clutches (sounds like 1980 was a "new style" from ?-1979) have not looked real hard yet but didn't even find a good u-tube video. Any other things to watch out for or give a little extra attention to?
