What Would You Buy WIth $16,000

Hello,
Thank you for taking your time to read this. I have been given the opportunity to purchase two ATV's as a gift for my highschool graduation. I would like to know what two quads would you buy with $6,000 for each quad. My choice is the 2003 suzuki quadsport z400. Do you agree or disagree? What about for $8,000 to spend on each quad. I like the Ds650 baja, but I am not sure if it is worth paying the extra money over the Ds650 or raptor 660.
I am a a fairly new rider that is hoping to be very good after I purchase a new ATV. I want to drag and jump my new quad. I will be trail riding and hill climbing. I'll ride on the beach and dunes as well as on hard mountain floor.
Thank you in advance and your input is appreciated.

Re: What Would You Buy WIth $16,000

I have ridden almost every quad out on the showroom floors today, I own a Raptor, Banshee, 2 Blasters and a Trailblazer, I just got the opportunity to ride the Z400 this weekend( THATS RIGHT MX TRACK CHICK I ROAD ONE YESTERDAY!!! ) If I were you I would consider the 400 EX or the Z 400, they have the same suspention, they are both electric start, the Z is liquid cooled, the Z has reverse, the EX has a long track record, the Z has a little more power than the EX (stock) there are more mods available for the EX than the Z ( the Z's to new ) Its a fuff call between the two, I personaly am going to sell both of my Blasters and get a Z
hope I helped, GOOD LUCK

Re: What Would You Buy WIth $16,000

I was just told by a dealer that I should buy a ds650 because of my large size(6'1, 220). Is the quadsport really that small for my size? Or does the dealer just want to earn more money. He said 2 ds650 bajas $15,000 out the door. I also got a deal for two quadsport $9900 out the door.

Re: What Would You Buy WIth $16,000

I hope these following comments will help those searching for an ATV:
Definetly go for the Z400 for $6000. Just got back from riding it all weekend at Coral Pink. Awsome! For $8000 you might consider a Cannondale but I would probaly go for the Z400.

If you have two quads to choose from...hmmmmm....we'd go with the Suzuki
Quadsport...then take the extra money that you would spend on the other
quad and grab all the accessories you can for your quadsport.

Things like; shocks, axle, axle carrier, k&n air filter, exhaust, new
handle bars, nerf bars, wheels and rims, grab bar, front bumper,
a-arms....etc...this is just a start, but these are the things we would
recommend you change.

ATV Source Magazine

ltz400s in stock and with all the positive press they have been getting they are selling extremely well(especially at the same price as the inferior honda 400)

If i were you I would get a blaster, a 400ex and a raptor. With that you only use $15,198 and those or the prices off the internet so at a dealer you could get them cheaper. Then you would have 3 atv's instead of just 2.
Hope this helps
