I think  everyone has  their own  valid opinion of which is the best  brand.  I  like  my  Honda ,  and friends who  have them  also  swear by them . Yamaha ,  Kawasaki and Suzuki  also  have their  fans.  Kymco, although  much  less well  known  also  has a very  good reputation  among those that  can get over their  prejudices  against "Chinese  junk" .  Kymco  is  Taiwanese, makes  parts for  a few  high end  car  makers  and as well as  for some of the more  name  brand   Japanese  ATV  builders.  I  can't speak  for the reliability  of some of the  newer models  of  US/ Canadian ATV  builders,  but some of the older  ones did  not have a great reputation  here .  For example , among the riders  I  know  the  old Polarises  were better known by the name " Pullhairis" for the  troubles they  had .

I  think the best ATV  is the one  that  does the job for you,  is  liked  by your riding  circle of friends  and is the one you  can afford. Keep  the maintenance  up  and  any of  todays  machines will  serve you well, although  I too am wary  of  unknown  brands that sell  cheaply.  None of the  name  brand ,  domestic or foreign  should  let  you down whether the machine  is  40  years  old or  new ..  Maintenance means  much ore than  age .

      I just bought my son a 2018 Ds70. First off it ran fine at dealer and when I got it home I couldn't get it to run without the choke. I took it back and the tech took the carb off and found the low speed jet was completely clogged. He said he bored it one size over stock. Now it seems like Im chasing my tail with it. The idle is erratic and the plug is white, which Im assuming is lean. It takes at least 10-15 minutes to get warmed up which I know is not right. He is ordering me a new carb and Im having him put a DS90 throttle cable on when I take it for the carb and 10 hr service. Has anyone had any experience with these little atv's? If so please give me some pointers on what to .

      So one thing I enjoy about Quadcrazy is the amount of diversity when it comes to the bike/brand of choice.  
      We all hear about so many different brands/types that we need help or helping out with! 
      Myself ive had just about every brand bike except for a Suzuki which I’m currently seeking as my next project😜. I currently have 5 quads and they are all different in brand except for two Honda’s one of which is a newer bike fuel injected. I have to say so far through all the bikes I’ve worked on my brand of choice would be Honda! I think they make a great product!  I love the older carburetor bikes! 
      Now I’m sure some of the other members feel differently and I would like to hear your bike of choice and why?  Wether it be the repairs, handling, look, safety, simplicity, electronics etc!!!!!!!
      One of the reasons I bring this up is I have friend that recently purchased a can am new! 
      I asked him why a can am after all the years of Polaris?  He said it’s a nice looking bike and wanted to try something new.
      He has rode the bike three or four times and hated it!  So a trip back to the dealer he traded it in for a Polaris and he’s very happy now.  A costly mistake since he lost money on the can am but back to his Polaris that he said he will never stray again. 
      Let’s hear it !
