What ATV should I get?

Recommended Posts

I currently have a 03' Kawasaki Lakota Sport that I love, but it just isn't fast enough. I am looking to buy a new ATV and am trying to find the one that is going to best fit my riding style.

My riding style - I love to ride trails and I tend to ride them as fast as I can go. I love to jump when there is a good spot. I love a good hill climb. I have taken my 2 wheel drive lakota on four wheel drive trails. I like to ride the toughest trails, but love to open it up and go as fast as I can on a flat road. I am tough on the bike riding as hard as I can. Some of the places I ride have a lot of big rocks, so I need something that is going to take bouncing of rocks.

Any suggestions on the best bike for me?

some of my thoughts on what you should get.

1st Choice: Polaris Outlaw 525 IRS: it is one of the fastest on the market today, IRS makes it totally TRAIL READY. it is a very quick atv. light so you can jump also. one of the most versitile atvs ever.

2nd Choice: Raptor 700r: Quick, powerful, lots of midrange power. great for trails but no IRS, its very versitile but nnot as much so as the outlaw. ground clearance is good, a bit heavy for no particular reason.

3rd Choice: KFX 700 V-Force: Powerful is the main point in theis beast. it is quick, powerful and ready to hit the trails, its AUTO so its easier on the trails if your not that experienced at a clutch. heavy though, not that much for jumping.

Honarable Mention: KTM 525XC: like the outlaw, except minor tweaks, slightly better than outlaw but less top end. the reason its an honarable mention is becuase its a VERY heafty price tag.

The KFX is to big it will crush you especially if you are as slim as the pics I have seen of you from your previous albums and Myspace. The Raptor is heavy too.

If you get the Outlaw 525 IRS or S I hope you are one hell of a good rider cus if your brag on that Quad like I have seen you do in the past, you better be a better rider than the Guy/Girl you are racing.:laugh::laugh:

What about the new Honda 700 Sport Quad with IRS (TRX 700)? I just saw one at the dealership and it looked sweet. The motor is rated at 50+ HP.

only downside to that is i dont see it jumping very far with it being a little chunker. lol

but hey man, its your choice.

there is no such thing as a "bad choice" if your buying a NEW quad.

because if you take care of it, most likely, it will last.

IMO if any honda get the 450.

my husband and I both have honda's...I have the 400ex, he has the 450r...I noticed the difference in power in between the two right off the bat, other than that, I think they're pretty similar when riding...I'm not too familiar with a lot of other brands, only what I read about them...but, I recommend the Honda 450r if you're lookin for good power at a decent price...

and you can do a whole bunch of mods to it to make it just the way you like it!!!! And, if you wait until July/August, you can get an '09 for sure...my husband bought his '08 last July before our wedding. I didn't know they came out that early!

the honda and outlaw are good choices but with the IRS u have a more likely chance of tipping over especially if u go fast on the trails. But even though the honda is a bit heavy they are very reliable and built to last

our honda's don't weigh too much, I mean, I'm not a big muscley girl, but I can still lug them around with no problem...the raptor, that's heavy...

What kind of logic is that? With the IRS both wheels stay on the ground.

:rolleyes:No I just think the` 450 class would be more`suited for your size . you are about 120 to 145 lbs right. I would want to weigh at least 155 and up to ride a Outlaw 525 cause the Quad is real fast. If you went 450 maybe you could hadle a DS or a mx but I doubt it :laugh: Trailblazer you'd be better off with a 450r or a Suzuki. :wink:

i dont care what anyone said i oculd handle if i was buying a new quad, for the type of riding i do it will be an outlaw 525. size/weight doesnt matter. im 155 btw. if he knows how to ride it wont matter.

but its up to him.

i whavent been small since 06

back then i was like 5'2 100 lbs.

now im about 5'9-10 155.

Hmm 100 to 155 you must still like to argue alot, so lets see I think in 07 an 08 the weight had to happen gradually . NOT 55 lbs at once.Geese thats over a 30 percent increase.:confused::rolleyes::no:I do not think that could happen ,DO YOU!:laugh:

      If you are looking for a used ATV for sale, where do you look? I know ebay and craigslist have used ATVs for sales and then sometimes you find local trade publications where they list used ATVs. I was looking online and decided to list out some websites that sell used ATVs. If you know of any additional websites or sources to look for or buy used ATVs, please post as a comment in this topic.
      eBay Motors  - usually has a good selection of four wheelers, ATVs, and Side by Sides and offer seller protections
      Craigslist - usually has more local ATVs, but be careful as there are no seller protections
      ATV Trader - has over 130k ATVs listed by private sellers
      ATVSoup.com - new and used ATVs for sale
      WantAdDigest - Shows local listings of ATVs for sale
      ATV.com - List new and used ATVs for sale
      When buying a used ATV, make sure you do your research and find out the book value of the ATV, look over the condition of the ATV, and as for verification of ownership. Be careful who you buy from and get the ATV checked out by a professional dealer or repair shop if you are baying a high price. 
      Watch our for VIN numbers that are scraped off, this is usually a sign that the ATV was stolen.

      I got an ATV from a guy that ran out of time rebuilding an eiger 400. He put a nerma Piston and rings in. I finished it up and it smoked like a train. I took the head off and honed the walls and it looked like the rings where on the walls, but it smokes just as much. I'm confused what's wrong with this thing.
