I'm about to pick up a 2000 scrambler 500 for a winter project. Is there a company that makes a descent aftermarket plastic kit for it? Its missing the hood and the rest of the plastic is in ok condition. I've looked on ebay but so far no good. Any known problems on these quads? It starts, idles, and runs good. Needs the steering post bushing fix I noticed. Thanks!

No one makes aftermarket plastic I am aware of. Scramblers can be basket cases if not maintained as they are geared toward younger and aggressive riders. Simple test check if handlebars are bent and how bad the outside rim lip is damaged!

Known problems 4x4 front hillard clutches,small tie rods, weak ball joints, brake pad eaters, early 2000 poor cam metal quality, exhaust rocker groove from compression release causing hard starting

Looks like a dead post but I'll say it anyway have seen several on e-bay. Seen half bodies on there but never really checked them out cause mine are fine.
