looking for a new quad....

Recommended Posts

I currently have a 2003 Yamaha 350 Warrior and looking to upgrade. Im debating between a Suzuki Z400 or a Honda TRX400x. But I've heard so many bads and goods. I heard Honda is super solid and durable but its more of a "beginners bike" and heard Suzuki's less durable but more torque and more of an "intermediate's bike"

Im a chick who rides trails and sand and loves to drift and "tries" to keep up with the boys.

Any suggestions??????????????????????

Both of those quad are time tested and very reliable. I think the best thing is for you to find someone who has one and see which you like riding the best. If you don't have any friends that have them maybe you can test drive some that people are selling.

I am a fellow lady rider. When I went to buy my quad i was going to buy the Honda. I went with the Z400 because the Honda was air cooled only, and the z had much better shocks. i like the z400 so much I bought 2 and haven't had any problems with either. Get the z you will be happy.

and I dont want a 450 cause I like to have a reverse lol

The Kawasaki, Polaris and KTM 450's all have reverse. Between the 400EX and the LTZ 400, I personally like the LTZ, it is more performance oriented and it is liquid cooled. Both are great machines however. BTW, the chick in your avatar is freakin' HOT.

I would go with the z400 for sure. I bought my girlfriend a 400ex and she rode it twice. It was to slow to keep up with us on the 450s. I just bought her a raptor 700 a couple of months ago. She loves it and I can also jump on it in the trails instead of the 450 and ride it hard and keep up. I dont no if the raptor700 is an option for you, but i strongly recommend that you look in to it. Very comfortable and fast, with fuel injection and reverse.

      So i was riding the other day and my quad randomly shut off. It started back up and ran completely fine for a little while and then it started idling terribly.
      I cleaned the carb and changed all the jets and everything except the float due to the rebuild kit not coming with one and it actually runs worse then it did before.
      It will run and idle decent now but when I give it gas it dies.
      Does anybody know what could be wrong?
      I also changed the spark plug and air filter along with the oil and oil filter.

      i have a 2000 suzuki king quad lt-f300f that i picked up as a project bike. it didnt run well when it was parked outside 5 years ago. it cranked after putting fresh gas - but would not run below half throttle, i took apart the carb, cleaned debris, and re-assembled. i suspect that the pilot needle is sheared off - it never protrudes into the throttle body through the pinhole. now to get the bike to ALMOST idle, the throttle idle adjustment knob is all the way up/in. the pilot needle is turned almost all the way in/up (if i understand correct, it should nominally be out 2 1/4 turns or so). and like i said, it will ALMOST idle. floods easily, rides rough.
      wanted to hear from those more experienced than me with suzukis - and im self-taught atv repair, so dont laugh too hard if my verbiage/part names is way off. 
      facing the driver's side of the bike [US] there are three hoses on this side of the carb. without a service manual or way of knowing what was messed up before i got it, i think i have them right: front hose as a vacuum to the petcock, middle hose as vacuum to the fuel pump, rear hose as fuel line from the fuel pump. running the bike in prime position results in flooding even while riding. with all hoses disconnected from the carb, fuel slowly drips from the vacuum line connected to the petcock.
      so just my speculation is that the diaphragm in the petcock is split, and the pilot needle is broke off - causing my inability to not quite idle and the rough ride. this suzuki is hoses and cables everywhere compared to the honda ranchers and yamaha warriors i am used to. I would like to have a plan rather than: replace everything at once.
      is my speculation on the right track, or could something else be at play? say, if the compression was non-existent, would that cause non-idling? i am all ears, look forward to the input.
