skip the warrior and find a 400ex :) I bought mine for 1500 used...and never really had any trouble with it, just general maintenance stuff, brake pads/oil/tires, etc...and she's got a whole race season under her belt! they say 400ex's are bulletproof and I believe it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

looks arent everything.

and to tell the truth. all the other 400s. "Kawi,Suz, and AC"

are faster than an ex.

Some of my buddies have had warriors , and they all liked them.There a little on the slow side for me but other than that from what ive seen they are bulletproof.

theres nothing wrong with a warrior and whatever deal presents itself at the time is what I would go with. As someone else the warriors are alittle heavy and not a good choice if you plan on racing. I you may race I would find a nice 400, which go for about the same used. If you plan on just riding there is nothing wrong with the warrior it will do everything you want it to do. Which ever way you go, I would find something that is stock. That way you know what you are getting and you can starting modifying it to you preference and is more dependable.

:iagreec:when i got my 400 it was all pretty much stock, even the pipe...I've loved being able to add the things I want and make it my own:yes:

      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.

      Can you put tracks on manual atvs? would it be effective? is 280cc enough to even move them? thoughts/suggestions?

      I recently picked up a king quad 700 that doesn't run in the hopes of getting it running by spring. It had been previously taken apart some and a few pieces are missing in the engine, but the frame is complete and in good condition. The motor will need a piston, rings, cylinder, cams, and a few misc parts that are missing. Also the cases will need to be split to remove the pieces of piston that are in the crankcase. The piston blew up at high rpm and did a number on the cylinder so I'm trying to find out if it would be worth rebuilding this motor it buying another engine to swap in. There may be more damage to this engine that I can see so I was wondering how bad the insides of it could be considering it destroyed the piston. I have found a motor for 1200 plus 200 shipping, the only problem is I don't have that much now and I would have to save up a while before being able to afford it. Any suggestions appreciated.
