Well I Would Have To Say That My Favorite Quad Of All Time Would Have To Be The Good Ol Suzuki 500 Quadzilla And The Reason For That Is Because That Is Alot Of 2 Stroke Power Between The Legs......lol

best sport atv

I would have to say the yamaha blaster, why you ask?

cheap even new!

light wight

parts are cheap

easy to mod

fairly quick and nimble

looks decent

easy to maintain

2-stroke power baby!

and Ive seen 8 year olds handle them all the way up to 60 year olds!

can be draged, trail ridden, motor cross, gnc raced, duned, flat tracked, TT raced

even though I feal 2 small on my girlfreinds(not to mention its pink) I can still have a blast on it!

I love my TRX450. It has the best ergonomics(for me) and plenty power. I might not win in a drag race but lets take it to the trails or desert. The thing is the prettiest of all the 450s. IMO Stock shocks suck, but everything else I love.

Without a doubt the TRX 250R, completely dominant 22 years ago when it was introduced, and continued to dominate until the E.P.A and the new gen 4-strokes took over. Even the new 450R frame geometry is still not much different from the old R. Stellar handling, endless list of aftermarket parts and good old 2-stroke power.

BANSHEE!!!!!!!!!!!! A few bolt on mods and they are super quick... it can be adapted to all kinds of racing, drag, MX, XC, TT dirt track, sand... TONS of aftermarket parts... They made em for 20 years for a reason... parts are reasonably cheap...

What i have ridden... DS 650- 250r- 450r- 400ex- blaster- banshee- z400- 426ex- 300ex

I have my z400 because it is my favorite of all I have been on. as you can see there are a lot i haven't ridden, but I like my aftermarket support, my ergos, and reverse.

I wish I could also have a 250r and a 450, but not sure which one, have not rode enough. But overall, I got a good balance of power, technology, and usability. The z is for me.

Great answers, shows how diverse our group is :)

I love my 400ex...cause compared to the 450r, shes lighter weight, thumb throttle is easier to push, less arm pump there....and shes got reverse, well can have if you get a newer model...

but i do love that you can get a rekluse for the 450...if they made one for a 400ex, i'd totally have that :)

I'd have to say the Yamaha Raptor 700 is one of the best ones. Fuel injection, reverse, don't have to mix fuel, and wet weight is around 400 lbs...yea!

how do you get 400lbs?

its 396 dry,

a gallon of gas will run about 5.8 to 6.5 lbs. and with a 2.9 gallon tank you are looking at around 414 lbs. thats just gas not counting everything else.

i see claims of about 428-430.

but thats ok. im 460 dry lol.

Favorite all time would undoubtedly be, hands down the 1989 Honda 250R

But my 06 Yamaha Raptor SE comes in on a very close second!

I said ABOUT 400...notice I didn't specifically say under. Also depends on how many mods you have and what you've taken off. I've taken off the parking brake, and the heel guards and have light weight handlebars that don't have a cross bar. Jeesh...

      The Hop-Up: You may be saying to yourself, “that’s a chick bike,” and you’re right. But honestly, it’s so much more than that. It’s one badass bike. http://www.quadmagazine.com/quad/features/article/0,24942,1587044,00.html

      Feul pump went out. Replaced. At times quad cuts out like its not getting gas. Saw article on new pump needs to be calibrated. Told how to go into a service mode. Does not tell how to calibrate after going into mode. Can anyone shed light on this procedure.

      Trying to change front wheel bearings. I removed the cotter pin and castle nut. Hub won't budge. Is there an additional retaining clip? Seems to be one of those push on type that barbs on the thread of the spindle. How do I remove it?

      Alright so I know that they all have their goods and bads. My options are the raptor 660 or 700(probably 700), ds650, outlaw 525, predator 500, or trx700. Before you rant and say this one is the period, I will have a budget of around $3000 tops. So that is however much I spend. After buying a raptor(660), ds650 and predator, I would have at absolute most $1000 dollars left. How ever with the raptor 700, outlaw 525, and trx I would be surprised to have any money left over. Now the extra money
      Now what I know, the ds650 is a pig stock, needs uncorked and tuned and has no reverse but can be a beast and rides good, the raptor 700 is a wheelier and way better than the 660 but neither can hill climb very well, the 660 is tippy and weaker and hard to tune. The outlaw is fast and expensive but rides like a dream but can't power slide, the predator is okay. Good power good shocks, just a good quad but has some reliability issues. And the trx700xx that is a dream but is like 4k and don't come up from sale much. Correct me if I am wrong with any of these statements. So which would u choose AND WHY, I don't give a shit that u can owned a Yamaha since they started making em, why would u choose the one u chose. Thanks, and yes I did post this on multiple forums to get more views and more responses.
