warrior or 400ex

new rider here and am wondering if i can get some suggestions on what would be a good bike for me.

i'm 5'7" 150lbs. will be doing a combination of trail, dirt and sand riding. i would definitely love to do some jumps when i get better at riding.

my friends tell me to get a warrior simply because of the reverse. but do people get stuck that much while trail riding to warrant a reverse? does the 400ex's performance outweigh the warriors ability to go on reverse or vice versa? thanks for any input.

PLEASE, DONOT FLAME THE PEOPLE WHO SAYS ONE'S BETTER THAN THE OTHER. I SIMPLY WANT SOME SUGGESTIONS. THANX.

I have ridden both. I prefer the 400ex far more. More power, WAY, way, way better handling. I love mine.

Re: warrior or 400ex

i personally dont think that reverse is a big deal at all. i find that the reverse lever is hard to work and sometimes just doesnt want to work. its just as easy for me to get off and pick the front up and throw it around or put my feet down and scoot. and on a tight trail if you use reverse youll just have to forward and back forward and back until you can turn it around..if you pick the front of you can turn it around quickly in a much smaller place.

Re: warrior or 400ex

the 400EX is more quad, therefore you need to be a better rider, I would (if I were you) ride the Worrior that you can get for $3300.00 (thats a good price) and see how you like it! if you think its not enough then hold out for the EX otherwise go for the Yamaha. It has a bullet proof track record, good luck

Re: warrior or 400ex

Ive ridden both also. I prefer the 400EX. Its lighter, handles well and that gives me the confidence to ride the trails faster. My buddy that owns the Warrior, he prefers his warrior over my 400EX. Hes a pretty big guy and feels more at home on his Warrior. My other buddy, who has a Polaris 400 sport, says my 400EX is too light.
Ya just gotta take our two cents, go down to your dealer and check em all out!! lol
