well, i decided to make a thread for my quad.

first off i'd like to say im 15, and not made of money.

im buyin for all the mods. no help from mom and dad. so this will take a while :laugh:

the bike is 2007 400ex. ive had it for 3 months now and here is when we first bought her

and how she sits at the moment

she has

-moose skids all around

-moose nerfs with pegs

-moose bumper

-powermadds(hence my screen name:yes:)

- and a billet exhaust tip jus for a throaty sound till i get an exhaust

and heres wat i plan on gettin in the future

-ironman exhaust

-suspension(idk what kind, jus watever i get a good deal on) i do like the fox floats tho

-A arms +1's or +2's(idk wat kind, jus a good deal)

- maxxis razr mx tires

-LSR adustable axle

-omf airscoops and a fan(this is an aircooled engine and does overheat quite a bit)

-handlebars(fasst if i get a good deal)

-white maier of fullbore plastics

-hiper beadlocks

-roll +1 steering stem

-possibly a sparks timing key after warranty is gone.

i gotta make this quad a mx machine.

i figure the next thing ill buy is either suspension or exhaust. im not gunna screw around with internal engine work till LATER.

i do all my own maintenaince (my father does supervise[sp]) and we are scared of messin with the internal stuff

i will probbly be added mods to this list quite a bit

tell meh wat u think guys! open to any suggestions

the big choice is the exhaust.

i got the exhaust picked out, the hmf ironman. is tuned to suit the needs of mx

the biggy (for me) is the suspension. everyone on exriders is sayin get 450r rebuilds. im not a fan of them because u have to scrape away at the shocks to get it to mount. im talkin to a guy that has some fox floats for sale so we'll see how that goes.

elkas are to damn expensive to buy, peps are nice but not alot of used ones out there. from wat i heard works shocks sucks. axis's are awesome but even more than elkas. fox are pretty cheap used, but not a whole bunch of them either. im sorta in bewteen a rock and a hard place here.

DO NOT put 450R shocks on it. They are good for stock but that is what I really want to replace.

exactly im not spendin 200 bucks on stock shocks. eventually i would want to replace them or revalve them but revalving is 300 or so

ok...i've got my 400ex I used to do mx with now I do harescrambles.

I have a DRD (Dubach Racing Development) exhaust on there and LOVEEEE the power it gives me. I also have a little bit experience with the shocks.....

I had the stock 400ex ones on there until my husband bought his 08 450 shocks...then I swapped them out and put them on my quad cause he got Elka's for his. About a month ago I sent the stock 450r shocks to Hygear Suspension, which is a local shop that rebuilds stock OEM shocks and I LOVE THEMMMMMMMMMMMM. My husband said he wishes he never bought the Elkas, he wishes he got them rebuilt by Hygear instead. Plus, it would have saved us some money!!! I believe he spent almost 1300 on the two front Elkas, and I spent 588.00 getting the stock ones rebuilt. So, even if you have to purchase stock ones, which are on ebay listed all the time, and you spend 200 bucks on them and then get them rebuilt/revalved, you're still saving about 500 bucks by not getting brand new shocks and everythign from a company like Elka.

Just a suggestion....do what you want with it :)

and...HYGEAR SUSPENSION is where you can get some sick rebuilds on stock shocks!

I knew Elka's are very expensive but I didn't realize that rebuilding shocks cost that much. I was wondering if mine need rebuilding and was going to look into it.

The thing is when they rebuild your stock shocks they are WAY better than stock.

some of the shocks like the YFZ shocks, the TRX shocks, and the DS 450 shocks are very good shocks and just as good as any aftermarket shock when rebuilt. I don't know that I can say that about the stock 400EX shocks though.

How about some WORKS shocks? They are a decent shock that is less expensive than the Elka but alot better than your stockers.

      We had a topic and poll going on  for 2016 presidential election here. This is now for 2020. Please be respectable with open discussion and please vote 🙂

      So yesterday I picked up a 07 polaris sportsman 800efi stealth edition for 3k.  Will lead a pic ltr.  In good shape.  Here's what's wrong with it:
      The rpm needle doesn't work just like my other sportsman... not too worried ab that.
      The motor doesn't sound like it's running quite right and doesn't feel like it has much more power than my 500.  I'm thinking it needs a tune up and some fresh oil..  but also it feels like it's running rich.  It's a little buggy when you goose the throttle and sometimes farts when you let off (like I little backfire out the exhuast). I'm gonna check timing and valave clearence on the motor first but thinking of putting a tuner on it? Anybody got a suggestion?  Mainly looking for more power.

      OK, so I'm a boxing fan...anyone watch last night's fight between Manny Pacquiao & Ricky Hatton?

      The PacMan is just too fast and too accurate. Floyd Mayweather just announced yesterday that he's coming out of retirement to fight Marquez in July. Maybe we'll get a December fight between Pretty Boy and the PacMan?
      So, Manny has convincingly beaten up DeLaHoya (just announced his retirement from boxing) and now Hatton...

      Tonight is the first presidential debate and it should be a record breaker for viewing. Might as well have a mini poll here on QUADCRAZY to see how they stack up. Make your choice in the poll and feel free to comment in this topic. I'm going to pin this topic and keep it going through the elections in November.

      So I’ve got a 2000 Honda 400ex absolutely love it!! I’ve had it for about a month, I ride with bruteforce 750’s, outlander 850’s and 1000 sxs’s and I was thinking of getting a trx450r carb and a full hmf exhaust. And probably doing the air box mod too, how much power would this give my 400? Just a little different or a big difference? Cuz if it’s not much of a different I’ll just stick with my dg slip on..... thanks!

      I’ve got a 2000 400ex with a dg slip on muffler, it came with he stock muffler on it but the previous owner had the dg in a box so I put it on. I’ve been riding it for the past month and a half and every time I let off it backfires, and the other day the backfires got way louder, 2x louder! I’m concerned that I may hurt my motor? Why does is backfire??? Thanks

      So I’m 14 years old right now..... I’m a pretty good rider for my age, I have a 98’ 300ex that I’m tryna sell. I’m thinking of a 400ex or should I skip the 400 and just go to a 450r or something along those lines?
