blaster vs. mojave

I am 22 looking to buy my first quad. I will be trail riding along with fooling around with it. Jumping, wheelies, etc. I am 5'10" and 165lbs. I am looking a buying a new quad and I think that I want a Yamaha Blaster or a Kawasaki Mojave. I have driven quads quite a bit for not owning one, my brother just got a 1993 Warrior and my ex-girlfriend and her family had a polaris 500 and a honda 250, so I know my way around the machines. If anyone can give me any information to help with my choice that it what I am looking for.

Re: blaster vs. mojave

I don't see how anyone can go wrong with a Blaster. I'm 6' 195lbs and I've had at least one in my garage since 1994. My wife rides a bone stock 99 model and my son has a modified 94. I think the only quad with more aftermarket options might be the 250R.

They are rock solid dependable, and even in bone stock condition, are still fun to ride. At 5'10" you may be a little cramped as your riding style becomes more aggressive.

$3099 isn't a bad price either.

Re: blaster vs. mojave

since you've ridden a quad before i'd go with the 400ex but if you think that's too much power go with the mojave. The blaster is fine but wiht the mojave you have 50cc more. Hope this helps

The weight is only 59 pounds but that is still quite abit for just 50cc. I think i would go with the blaster for speed and jumping!!

Re: blaster vs. mojave

these two machines are really close (in my opinion) to being the same machine, they will have almost the same power STOCK, the Blaster is lighter (as pointed out) so it handles better on the trails, but the KAW. has better suspention for jumping, I own two Blasters and LOVE them both, but I was looking at the Mojave for one of my sons(hes more of a four stroke kind of kid)so the real question hear is , ARE YOU A 4 STROKE RIDER OR A 2 STROKE RIDER, the answer to that question will give your answer as to which quad to buy

Re: blaster vs. mojave

I just found a 2001 300ex with full skid plates and new rear tires (can't remember which brand), that looks new. I can get it for 3,800. So I think that I am going to go with this quad. Any thoughts?

Re: blaster vs. mojave

The 300EX is a great 4 stroke quad. Don't think you can go wrong there.
