IMO,,,,,,As long as you Regularly Service and Inspect your Rides....They are all Tough to Kill....

That Being Said.....

I think that the Honda Big Red Series was the Toughest Built, followed by the SX and so on down the Unsuspended Trikes....

Yamaha I would have to say Comes in Second...

Kawasaki a Close 3rd

Polaris and Suzuki Never Really Took off...UGLY!!!:eek:

I had a Guy in Germany make me some Billet Stator Covers and Chain Guards....So I decided I would put them on...Just needed some Bling Factor!!!!

Also for this bike....I wanted to keep the Front End Down when Coming out of the hole!!!! So I had a Friend of mine in Florida make me a Aluminum +12 Swinger....Then sent it out to Kansas to another Friend to be Polished...If anyone needs Custom Stuff for their Rides...Let me know....I might know people....LOL!!!!

Thanks,,,,,Yeah,,,The Z is Real light up front.....Im thinking of making an Aluminum Gas Tank to replace the Airbox and Get rid of the Rear, Under seat Tank and Fuel Pump....That will Take the Weight off the Rear and Move it Forward...Not much but Every Bit helps...And with the +12...The Front will stay down pretty well....:D

The toughest 3 wheeler I ever rode pending is a 1985 Honda 350x ATC. Bored to a 393, stroked to a 430, midrange cam, 13.5:1 pop up piston. The bike was so strong, it would not stay on the ground at 1/4ths throttle. A major mean machine.

If we are talking toughness. It would be, in my opion, either the atc 110 or 185s. If you are talking speed you can't over look the 250r. :D

I think you guys are on the Right track....I believe that ANY of the Unsuspended Trikes are Tough. As the Suspension Got Better So did the Speed...However,,,,Tough is Relative to the upkeep or Lack there of

Good im not crazy and i can read. yes the big red 250es was a bull and very tough. But I like the more sporty feeling of the sx just can not kill either of thost things. The eariler non suspension atc's were very tough also but haveing a little bit of suspension is the only way to go if you are going to put any miles on normal trails without killing yourself. They were fine when i was about 17 but the back cant take much more than a few trips around the lawn these days.

How are We going to decide what the Toughest is.....????? I think your picking the SX because of Suspension.....Everyone knows that the Big Red will out work the SX and the SX will out Play Red....What it boils down to at the end of the day is Which you would rather be pulling your Ford LTD back home with Billy...l:laugh:

      Exploiting a loop hole in the law, turn 4 wheeler into rev trike
      for a long while I have been trying to get a real 4 wheeler street legal.
      the problem is with the state laws, if it has 4 wheels, its a car and has mega more rules.
      If it only has 3 wheels, its a trike and can be made from cobbled junk parts held together with duct tape and they will plate it
      I wonder if anyone would have insight on changing a 4 wheeler over to a single rear wheel?
      [ I can't afford some $40-60,000 canam or super bike modded into a car, rev trike kit ]
      I want something I can truly ride year round on and off road. Ive rode enough old Honda 3 wheelers that I know I do not want a traditional motorcycle trike. So the single wheel has to go out back.

      I have a 99 kawasaki prairie 300 4 wheeler that was stolen from me, and i recently got it back. It had been hot wired, and ignition busted out. I need to know what are the color of the wires that connect to the ignition switch? Thanks in advance.

      I have this 4 wheeler that I am building and i have encountered a problem.
      The 4 wheeler will not move!
      I am a beginner to all of this.
      The clutch over inside is rotating but the chain is not moving; I already replaced the clutch it is brand new.
      The clutch overheats and it starts to shoot out smoke.
      Is this a clutch problem? Am I using the wrong type of clutch?
      The clutch is a Max-Torque 3/4 in. bore and 10 teeth.
      Or is the Engine too small? Is the 4 wheeler to heavy?
      Im using a Briggs and Stratton 3 hp 127 cc 3600 rpm
      Here are some pictures of the clutch and the engine.
