2002 NEW ATV\'s Comparison - Warrior or EX300
I am looking for a new ride and have never been on an ATV before, but I have had much expirence on 2 wheelers. I have researched all the Manufactures, Models, Spec's, and Prices of ATV's. I have narrowed it down (I think) to either a "Warrior" or a "EX300". The 300 is (MSRP)$4799 compaired to the Warrior at (MSRP) of $4999. Looking at that, $200 bucks for an extra gear and 50 more cc's seems well worth it. BUT what about reliablity??? I've been reading past post and have seen many problems with the Warrior. Can anyone shed some light on this point for me?
My buddie who's trying to get me into riding has got a 2 yr old EX300 and many friends of his do also, So you can imagine that all I hear is how good they are. BUT I don't want to--- "settle" for the average norm!
And Yes If I had the extra $2000 I would say the hell with it and get a Raptor, so I don't have to worry about "not being satisfied" with lack of power.
Oh Yea, before anyone ask's, Mostly trail riding, jumps, sand, mud, snow, and hills. Around the DE-NJ-PA-MD area's.
This is gonna be a weekend play toy! I don't want to fix it or have to do any more work on it then necessary maint. Too many projects as it is, and I want this to have so "I CAN GET AWAY!".... if ya know what I mean...
