Walters;

Sorry I don't have the specs you need; but I just wanted to give you my experience on a 1986 Moto 4, that I bought new.

Mine had been flawless in all these years. It has only seen utility work and never any really hard riding though. It has been a real good machine for me.

Of course the past riding history means a lot in the condition of any ATV.

The smoking issue may require rings/piston and probably a valve job, and guides, maybe. But that is only normal repairs for a well ridden machine.

The reverse issue, may be more of a problem to fix. I have seen that model with gear troubles. People could jam it into reverse, before the machine came to a dead stop. that is not a recipe for long gear life.

If the problems can be fixed with not too much money outlay, your son will have a nice machine to ride. Not a fast one, but it will do what most all ATV's will do.
