Which ATV to buy

Recommended Posts

Hello Guys,

I need some help in choosing an ATV to buy, At the moment i have raptor700 GYTR Spacial Edition, and i liked it but i think that the 450cc will be more better for me, and this raptor is my first ATV, I bought it used, and it's my first bike, i don't have too much experience through. but it runs perfect. i just completed 2 months. I told my uncle ( He is professional) that am going to buy an 450cc ATV and he told that it's not good for me. He also said that TRX4500 Honda, is the best 450cc. but i don't really know what to do. :skeptic:

In my opinion, I think the Suzuki LTR450 is the best because it's fast , good handling and EFI not Carb.

Also what is the differences between Carb and EFI, which one live long and better ?

I hope if anyone can help me to find a bike, i don't care about money ill pay as much as i can since it's for me.

Sorry for my bad English

The carbs are much more simple to work on. If you want to add a pipe and filter to an EFI quad you have to buy a fuel programmer too. Those run about 300 bucks. I love carbed machines and won't switch. I have the TRX450, I have absolutley nothing negative to say about the machine.

I like the TRX 450R's ALOT!!! but the YFZ 450s are more snappy. The TRX's have bettr handling suspension ETC..

I would go with the Honda.

My 2 cents

Good choice ! For me carbs are eaiser to figure out that EFI

I would say Honda or Yamaha, it really depends on which ones fit you better, when i was on the market for a 450 i liked the YFZ450 as far as how it felt and the ergonomics better then the TRX and i still do. The only reason i got a Honda is i got a good deal on one and the YFZ's were a lot more expensive, and it seems that according to most people the TRX is more reliable.

I really like my Kawasaki KFX 450 R it is fuel injected and offers reverse which is nice if you are a woods /desert racer but I really think any of the 450's are a great bike anymore its a matter of opinon because they are all so close as far as performance goes.

I personally have a 05 YFZ450 and love it. Carb and all. I ride all year round and it ALWAYS starts right up. The new YFZ has EFI also. The only issue I have ever heard about the TRX is they have an issue with the stock valves. I can tell you that if your a trail rider you would be crazy to not keep the Rappy. The only reason I have a yfz over the TRX and LTR is that I got a great deal. They are all SWEET machines and wont go wrong with any of them. But there is a difference in the ergonomics so if you can try and at a minimum sit on all of the machines if you can and ride them if given the opportunity.

I have a '07 YFZ 450 and love it to death, it's snappy as hell, great suspension, and fits me like a glove, I also have a '04 predator 500, and I'm not a huge fan, it's big and bulky, feels like your riding a utility quad with the looks of a sport quad, so I agree with these guys, it's what fits you best, test drive/sit before you buy for sure. My brother has a '08 Raptor 700 SE and that thing is a beast too, I love the EFI on it, just cause you can go from my house (sea level) to his neck of the woods (5000 feet) and ride the same, my YFZ is carbed and you definately can't set it and forget it lol.

What to buy is really a personnal preference, I like and have the Arctic cats 2011 700cc prowler with stereo, 650 utility, 250 utility and Kfx400 Kawasaki 2003 model. all do the job I want from hauling stuff to hauling ass:laugh:

Try to test ride each one and see what fits you best. They all have little quirks. In my opinion honda is bulletproof but not the fastest out of the box. But its pretty cheap to make them fast. With the HRC kit they will hold their own against anything.

      Have a 08 raptor brought to me a couple months ago. Got it on a trade for house remodel. Bike has around 30 hours. No that's not a typo thirty verifiable hours. The main Yamaha tech has put hands on this bike. Always Been reallyhard to start. If it does it runs really good. That's the kicker...IF! It started out intermittent now it's no spark at all. Everything ignition related is brand new. It all checks out good but still won't do it. Please help

      Went shopping on Saturday, picked up another Kawasaki Bayou 220 and a Yamaha Timber Wolf 250
      I really should sell some of these but they are a lot of fun to find, fix and ride
      Of course neither of them run but that's part of the fun!  Az

      I have a 1988 300 Honda FourTrax, All wheel drive.
      My brother and I were fixing up this quad. We put a brand new battery and fuses in and it was running fine until we put the quad into reverse. As soon as it was put into reverse all of the electrical cut out and power wasn't making it to the head unit anymore and both of the brand new fuses popped. We figured there might have been a short from the starter or solenoids, but they are all working properly. At this point we don't know where to start looking for where the short could be. I'm just wondering if anybody has had the same issue or knows of similar issues that could cause these electrical shorts?
