Need 2 Know

I am about to buy a new sport quad and was just wondering if I could get a little feedback on wich one I should buy, right now my choices are Suzuki's Z400 and Honda's 400EX. I'm having a tough time deciding and thought that I should get a few peoples opinions before forking over the cash. Any info would be appreciated!
Thanks.

Re: Need 2 Know

I feel the Z400 is the way to go, it's watercooled,has more power than the 400ex, similar handling (which is great on both quads), and I believe it is also 4 lbs or so lighter than the 400ex, and that's even with reverse. Also should you decide to modify it someday, the dual overhead cam watercooled engine has more potential to make some serious power. The only complaint I have ever heard about on the z400, was the first year models had some problems with weak rear axles, but from what I've heard ,they fixed that now, so no glaring problems with either quad now. basically you get more quad for the same price with the Suzuki,and if you don't like yellow or white, Kawasaki has it in green (KXF400) exact same quad so all parts are interchangable, just different color, with possibly a redish orange comming soon (since the kxf700 is available in that color now, the 400 most likely will have it as an option too soon)

Thanks man, I was leaning more towards the Z I never liked that the EX was air-cooled I know hondas are almost indestructable, but like you said more quad for the money.

Re: Need 2 Know

yeah definetly, personally i love Hondas,and ride a '88 250r, but I have been looking at the Z400 for the wife too, so much nicer for the same money as the Honda, I can't ignore the value in it, if Honda ever came out with a watercooled 400 with reverse, I would most likely switch back again, but for now there's no reason to buy red
