Re: which is better?

As far as the 400EX wait till 05' season and buy it with reverse, the 400EX is built as a performance bike and the other is a good all around, but... The 400 has it in every aspect.

700 prairie has a new ignition box availbe.

Bang for your buck, this is the best performance mod that gives you the most benefits.

Re: which is better?

The 2005 400ex does not have reverse, the 2005 400ex aint even out yet, and it wont look like a 450r. Honda is comin out wit a 2006 400ex, they arent comin out wit a 2005! So you gotta get it straight about atv's. [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/chair.gif[/img]

Re: which is better?

Re: which is better?

dont waste your time on a 400 ex or any honda, i have a yamaha yfz 450 and its the fastest out yet. i have beat every thing i raced on 4 wheels including the newest banshee, exept the banshee with a big bore kit.lol other than that the YFZ is the way to go. also dont get a 2004 yfz it likes to blow out a freeze plug looking thing on the top of the head above the exhaust, 4 dollar fix thou. in 2005 the yfz has been changed to a casting instead of the freeze plug looking thing.you will be happy with the yfz.....

Re: which is better?

i am by far not a honda man and i do own a warrior and i think it is a good dependable atv with great all around performance, but if you are wanting something dependable, fast and woods and track ready then the 400 is the ride you would want to go with. good luck and ride on

Re: which is better?

srry i doubted u guys bout the 2005 400ex, i didnt see ne thing bout it at newebsite, srry bout that tho, i would go with the 400ex tho kid. for the prarie, my friend has one and there has been many problems with it, does yours have alot of problems like belt loosening, 4wd is goin bad? i would go with the penland pipe from hmf, my friend got one and it sounds powerful when he got it, but it dont put more speed on it if u did want some, it is a cool pipe, but only gives u the power u might need , but might lack in the speed.
