need opinion on proper size atv!

Recommended Posts

Hello I'm a new guy from sd. I've got a basic question. I'm 6 foot and 300lbs. I found a good deal on a 2010 arctic cat 450. H1. But is this atv too small for me? I don't want to look like a Damn circus bear on a moped. I keep hearing this is a "larger chassis" 4wheeler. Soooooooo close to the size of a 700 just with a smaller motor??? I guess when I hear of 450cc atv I think small motorcycle lol

I think you would be alright with that size. Its got a bit more size on the chassis than most midship ATV's out there. My advice to you is if you have a dealer around you (Petes Cycle), try sitting on a few differant models and determine which size comforts you.

hey Arctic Cat,

depends really on what you want to do with it, just sit on it and try to look pretty, or getting out and about into the wilderness testing yourself and the machine. Right tools for the job everytime in my book.

happy trails my friend bucky19

Yes the 450 is the full sized chassis. The mid sized ones are the 366 and 425i. I have both types, my girl rides the 366. I am 5'6" and 220lbs and I do tend to like the larger frame quad. (though the 366 is a nice riding machine)

Thank u guys! I plan on doing trail/ditch riding. Nothing on the highway so if it doesn't go 70 I don't care. In a perfect world I want to have it for a while to get my wife hooked and then let her have it and pick up a 700 or bigger for myself. My boss hada bruteforce 700 and that's originally what got me hooked.

I think if you can afford to go up a few ccs it would not hurt. Stay away from the 1000s they have alot more power than is what is needed for the average rider.

      If you are looking for a used ATV for sale, where do you look? I know ebay and craigslist have used ATVs for sales and then sometimes you find local trade publications where they list used ATVs. I was looking online and decided to list out some websites that sell used ATVs. If you know of any additional websites or sources to look for or buy used ATVs, please post as a comment in this topic.
      eBay Motors  - usually has a good selection of four wheelers, ATVs, and Side by Sides and offer seller protections
      Craigslist - usually has more local ATVs, but be careful as there are no seller protections
      ATV Trader - has over 130k ATVs listed by private sellers
      ATVSoup.com - new and used ATVs for sale
      WantAdDigest - Shows local listings of ATVs for sale
      ATV.com - List new and used ATVs for sale
      When buying a used ATV, make sure you do your research and find out the book value of the ATV, look over the condition of the ATV, and as for verification of ownership. Be careful who you buy from and get the ATV checked out by a professional dealer or repair shop if you are baying a high price. 
      Watch our for VIN numbers that are scraped off, this is usually a sign that the ATV was stolen.

      I got an ATV from a guy that ran out of time rebuilding an eiger 400. He put a nerma Piston and rings in. I finished it up and it smoked like a train. I took the head off and honed the walls and it looked like the rings where on the walls, but it smokes just as much. I'm confused what's wrong with this thing.

      Can somebody please tell me if 250x or 250ex nerf bars will fit on 96 300ex, and will 93-98 300ex nerf bars work on my 96 300ex? Thanks
