Recommendations for ATV for my DILs to ride?

Recommended Posts

Hey All,

Looking for some recommendations on an ATV for my Daughters-in-law to ride when they visit with my sons. We ride mostly woods trails. It needs to be fairly easy to ride, automatic is't necessary but shifting should be forgiving and it needs to be under $2000. I have a Banshee and a Polaris Sportsman 500HO now.

One DIL is tiny, 5' and about 100lbs, the other is about 5'8" and 130lbs. I'm concerned that steering on the Sportsman may require too much upper body strength and the Banshee is definitely not a beginner's ride.

I'm thinking about a Warrior (may be under powered) or a Honda 400EX but I'd love to hear what others might suggest?

Thanks!

Id recommend a Kymco Mongoose.

Its a CVT tranny so you just have forward and reverse. Dang near stupid proof which is a great thing. Even a inexpierienced rider can jump on and have some safe fun.

My wife loves the mongoose.

A warrior wont be underpowered but not the best choice (IMO).

A LT230E (semi auto shift) will go anywhere (I have one of those also).

If you are really looking for a clutch machine, I leave my 250R at home to ride my 300ex when I want to just cruise. The 300ex would be a better choice than the warrior or 400ex. Again, IMO.

Too many cc + a clutch = ouch! :)

Good luck on your decision.

      Got my Yamaha Grizzly buttoned up finally and went for a quick 2 hour ride in the power lines with my neighbor, who has a Yamaha Kodiak. We have access from his yard, which is nice. Was a beautiful day today to get out and will try to go more often. Ran into two other quad riders with a sportsman and I think grizzly. Also ran into a dirt bike rider. 😎

      Does anyone use GPS, whether on a device or app to record their ATV trail rides? I have been thinking about a section where our members can upload let's say a .gpx file and share their rides on a google map for others to see where there are riding areas. Not sure if this is something of interest or how much it would be used, so just trying to get an idea.
      Importing routes from files like xml, lmx, tour, freshroute, gpx, kmz, kml

      My quad runs,  it starts up runs for about 10 minutes and then it dies if you let it sit for 10 minutes it’ll start back up ride for another 10 minutes and then die again, trying to figure out why it keeps stalling

      Looking at buying a used ATV and was curious as to what the average lifespan is on one? I was browsing ebay and I saw one with 120 hours on it. I'm not sure if that is a lot or a little? Saw another with 1400 miles for a reasonable amount of money and another that looked better but had 4200 miles on it.
      How many miles or hours is too much? I'm looking at 4x4 ATV's for carrying deer stands etc into the woods and hopefully carrying deer out
