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

man I was going to say a quadzilla, I loved mine way back when 500 power! yea they had a fragile top end but hey ther were crazy fast!

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!

      posted a while back - it was running at one point - I have all the plastic shroud off - it's down to frame and engine now
      -fuel pump: when line from petcock is attached, no fuel comes out other side to carb; the line to the carb is open (can blow through it); I thought when I cranked engine that the pump would spit out fuel on other side but it does not; I removed fuel pump and opened it up - diaphragm looks good - but internal areas had lotsa calcification build up - I cleaned this out and dried it good - the clear plastic pieces (?diaphragms) aren't broken - the spring w/ steel ball on end moves freely; am putting it back on tomorrow; but can anyone answer about the pump? isn't it supposed to pump fuel through it... to other side... to carb? puzzling
      -along with fuel pump: I replaced petcock 3 weeks ago (gas tank had rusty fuel in bottom - cleaned it out prior to new petcock); when I turn petcock arrow NOT to on or reserve, fuel comes out of line; when I turn it to on or reserve, fuel doesn't come out; puzzling
      -I don't know what's on back of fuel pump - it's a valve that has a hose coming out of it - looks like it goes to engine/carb - I haven't traced this out yet - what is it?
      -can squirt gas on air filter and engine will run for 2-3 seconds then stop - fuel in top of carb (under diaphragm) does same
      -it likely needs carb rebuild - will get to this - but something isn't allowing fuel to get from fuel pump to carb
      -I THINK it has a mikuni model x carb - diaphragm is ID 26mm  OD 68mm - hard to find inexpensive diaphragm, I guess because it's a model x
      -last thing - I replaced solenoid due to old one clicking; I HAVE to be charging the battery or it won't start/turn over - battery just goes dead; but if charging, it'll turn over nicely; i'm guessing it's a bad battery
      -any help appreciated - I've never owned an ATV before - inherited this beast from grandparent in-law

      Hi,
      Oddly I'm having  a hard time ordering front brake shoes for my '98. 
      I'd appreciate recommendations on decent, widely available shoes if possible. Ideally available in Canada on short notice.
       
      Thanks much,

      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.

      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?

      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.
