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.

      I have a 2018 Sportsman 570 SP Hunters Edition. I bought the quad new in August of 2018 and put around 20 miles on it with no issues. In early January of this year the quad was acting as if it had a bad battery even though it had been plugged into a tender. I checked the battery and it tested well so I took it to the dealership for warranty service. They had it for almost a month. They determined the quad had a bad EPS unit and swapped it out. Then they told me that the wire for the EPS needed to be updated as they could not program the new unit with the old wire. After the wire came in dealership told me they were still having troubles programming. After another week and a half they told me that they had consulted several times with engineers from Polaris and found a workaround and that the quad was ready for pickup. I contacted Polaris to inquire about the warranty being extended as it was in the shop for a month. They extended the 6 month factory warranty for an additional 3 months. I picked the quad up and the dealership said that the 2018 SP editions were known to have issue a with the EPS units but believed that they had fixed mine. I had it back for around a month and took it out a couple times for short rides and everything seemed fine. I parked it again for a few days and when I went to start it same issues (acting like the battery is no good and won’t start, when I jump start no power steering). Took it back to dealership and waiting to hear what the diagnosis is this time as well as their plan to fix this permanently. Just wondering if anyone else has had issues similar to mine or can give me some advice. Thanks in advance!

      My Children’s 50CC Yamaha ATV was stolen from just outside the garage. I did a little custom work to the front of it and added two LED headlights to it as well as a switch to the plastic handle bar cover. Our home sits well off the road and it was not something that was just in plane site so my fear is that this was planned over time and the thieves knew we had it and were just waiting their chance. We also had a 20 inch bike that was stolen as well, we were able to recover it however about a mile down the road as it was left abandoned. We didn’t know it, but we think the bike may have been taken a few days earlier. Now sure if both items were taken by the same person or just a coincidence Thanks for any help you might be.

      Hi, I'm a new member
      Just bought a used 08 350 raptor with about 5 hours on it ( very clean ). Started fine when we got it. Now after a few mods (bumper, skid plates, air filter) Now will not start unless you pull in the clutch. I've checked just about everything and also checked that there is no pinched wires. Anybody have any ideas?:bangheadc: Thanks, Dave

      Looking at buying a used ATV and was curious as to what the average lifespan is on one? I was browsing ebay and I saw one with 120 hours on it. I'm not sure if that is a lot or a little? Saw another with 1400 miles for a reasonable amount of money and another that looked better but had 4200 miles on it.
      How many miles or hours is too much? I'm looking at 4x4 ATV's for carrying deer stands etc into the woods and hopefully carrying deer out
