Well we have a "02 Expedition, and a trailer and we can fit all 5 rides in it, (1-400ex, 2-250's, 1-110, and either 1 dirtbike or 1 90 or the other 110. I will try to get pictures on here soon. Oh and we have the normal things to bring too(chairs,gas,cooler,camping things,riding clothes and air compresser and battery charger).

I need suggestions..My 450r is a pain in the you know what to load because its just too wide for my truck (colorado) and the tires have to wedge between the wheel wells to fit..and its pretty much impossible to load unless theres atleast 2 people there.

Mine fits perfect in my Ranger. Get a ramp first of all. Ride up until your front wheels hit the wheel wells. Put it in neutral hold your front brake. Get off and climb to the front of the quad. Grab your bumper and release the brake. Pull it the rest of the way in. That's how I do it in the ranger. In the F150 you can just ride right in.

LOL you make it sound so easy stoopid..I spent like 45 minutes trying to do that the first time i loaded it..I was sweating bullets in like 95 degree weather....Thats when im like ..F IT and nailed it up rode over the wheel wells and slammed on the breaks..the truck was bobbing back and forth for like 20 seconds..and i am not doing that again lol..

And i believe from wheel well to wheel well its about 42 ish inches..with line-x..the overall width of bed is like 47 itches..but the freakin wheel wells screw me over..

And to mwke, I can push it up the ramps fine..then the front tires hit the wheel wells and turn and then its hell from there..are you saying push it in from the back of the quad in first? I still dont think itd fit..

Also..riding it up is damn hard..it ALWAYS stalls and dies when i try to go up..i can only nail it up to keep it from dying<-Shuld i be riding the clutch in first to get it up the ramps?

What I was sayin was.....Roll it in there Backwards.....But before you do.....Reverse the Rear Rims......

That offset will give you less overall Width in the rear and might Clear the Wells:wink:

Eh, but i dont want them to be like that all the time so i'd have to take em off..put em on..take em off put em on etc..and ..wheel well = 42 inches..trx = 46? ..would i really lose 4 inches by switching rims

And to stoopid, I'll try wut u said next time. My parents said when they picked it up (I wasnt with em) the guy at the dealer rode it up the ramp..stalled it right in the middle (lol) and hit the break started it back up and rode it the rest of the way

My offset is stock lol..I think thats 3+2 right? And can u flip the rims without any modifications ? Just to flip em to transport.. Or i guess i gotta get abigger truck "Mom..Dad..my four wheeler dont fit in the truck buy me a bigger one" lol

I was thinkin when i eventually get the spair cash..(..would be a while since im paying for the quad) I'd buy a little trailer just for the size of my four wheeler..or maybe 2 for a friends or something..would look stupid pulling a trailer and a quad with a truck ..but itd be so much easier and faster

Yes,,,,,Just unbolt them and Flip em around.....That should Suck them in.....Just take a Tape measure and measure em....Just measure the outside of the Rim...That will tell you how much Narrower you will be with them Flipped...

And Yes.....Just to transport....My Buddies just put two nuts on them to roll it in and out.....

      Heres my story. Kinda long. I guess I was a late bloomer when it comes to quads. I had never ridden a quad in my life. Rode Dirt Bikes as a kid growing up. Back in Oct of '06 I found a Mustang on craigslist. Took it for a test drive one morning before work. Fast car. 351 Cleveland. I had planned on meeting the guy again after work. For some strange reason thats still to this day beyond me, I stopped in Hillsboro MotoSports on the way home from work. I had 6 Grand on me. There was a left over '05 sitting by the front door. It was on sale for $4999. It was $5499 OTD. I didnt even look at anything else. I knew nothing about quads accept I thought it really looked coool and I had the money in my pocket to buy it. I was sitting on it when the salesman walked up and asked... "Can I help you?" Without hestitation I pulled 60 Ben Franklins outta my front pocket and said "I want this Quad. Load it up in my truck." It was just about dark by the time I drove away from the shop. BTW, I didnt bother to ask my ol lady if I could buy it. LOL. Anyway, I took it by the house and showed her. She was kinda stunned but not mad. We drove over to a friend of mines house and unloaded it. I took it to the field across the street from his house. HOLY CHIT!!!!! I was surprised by the power. I had it for about 2 weeks and took it to Sand Lake. I was there a few hours and rolled it on a banked turn at the top of the bowl right before you get to the one-ways. When it rolled, I flew off and landed on my belly. The quad came bouncing and landed on my back. For a month I couldnt even walk. I was scared of it. I considered trading it for a 250EX. Went back to the shop. The salesman said..."Dude!!! You dont want a 250EX!!! Trust me. Just get used to it" I still wasnt convinced. I put it on craigslist for $4000. Calls were coming in. I had a guy that wanted to come look at it that evening. I decided to take it for one last ride at Browns Camp before I sold it. I was still afraid of it. After about 5 minutes I started feeling comfortable on it again. I decided right then, I loved my Honda 450 and would learn how to ride it instead of selling it. That was late Nov of '06. Work was slow for a Painter in Oregon. My new job everyday? Going to Browns Camp and ridding my Quad. I bought my Girl Friend an '02 Blaster. I rode my 450 for 4-6 hours almost every single day for 3 months. And yes, I know my way around Browns Camp pretty well. LOL. In March I bought her an '06 TRX250EX (Thank God I didnt trade my 450 for one of those) LOL Since then, I have become totally addicted to quads. I love them. Couldnt imagine not owning at least one quad. Luckily I have two. My "07 was $6500 OTD in July of '07. Bought it for my Girlfriend. Traded in her 250 EX. A month later we broke up. So, I wound up with two Honda 450's.

      New bonehead here figuring out the trails! Just got a 2008 Suzuki Z400, and the guy said he just did an oil change, but needs a little more because he was letting it cycle through before topping it off. He says he used ATV Power SAE 5W-40 Synthetic 4T Engine Oil, but the manual just says use 10W-40. He lives a couple hours away, where it's a little bit colder, so I'm assuming that's why he used 5W instead of 10W? Anyways, I only need a little bit more oil, and since it's already new in there, can I put the 10W in and let it mix? Also, does the brand being the same matter at all? I haven't gone out and looked in person yet, but actual ATV oil seems a bit expensive compared to just getting some standard oil at AutoZone, and the online manual I found isn't that clear on options. I'd appreciate some feedback and experience in this area, as well as the best place to get oil and filters when it's time. Thanks in advance!

      Hi Ladies,
      I am new to the forum and to riding. I just bought a 2002 Honda 400ex and I love it. I went out riding for the first time last Sunday and I can't wait to get back out there on Saturday. My question is do you wear your wedding/engagement rings while riding? I just recently got engaged and I never take my ring off. It fits fine under my glove and I am wondering if anyone else has lost theirs or had a bad experience wearing it while riding.
