Shouldnt take any longer then about 3 days, but that depends on other factors I guess.
Spare parts quad is the way to go. Hit Craigslist and see what you can score, you eventually will find a good deal.
I bought mine, its a 1996, for $100 with a cracked case. It had studded ice racing tires, FMF Fatty Powercore exhaust system ($260 by itself), Boysen power reeds, Boost bottle and good plastic/seat. I transplanted all the performance stuff over to my sons quad and then took the rest of it apart and put it in tubs for easy access. Its SUPER handy to have laying around.
I had someone give me another LT80 yesterday.....along with the factory repair manual (which cost about $40 on eBay, if I remember correctly). This one is supposedly a runner. There was something wrong with it (dont remember) but they took it completely apart to fix it.....fixed it.....then didnt put it back together. They just want it gone. Im not going to waste my time putting it back together cause I dont trust their repair work.....so its going to be binned for parts.
These LT80s are everywhere.....and plenty cheap when they dont run, keep and eye out.
