Cool bike! I had an 1986 IT200 when I was younger. It was a great bike. I would consider buying an older IT490 if I seen a clean one around somewhere.

Yes, the '86 IT 200 was the last of the ITs and it was a good one.... they still use the same engine in the Blasters quads.

Thats the one thing I didnt do to my bike,.....add the disk brake front end of the 200...

The 490s and 465s are WAAY too heavy and abrupt, at least for the tight twisty trails around me. You can get a TON of power out of the 250s....more than I would think you could ever use...
