Looking to buy a quad, need help.

Hi, I will give you a little history. I am a expert/semi pro desert motorcycle racer, I race in socal and I have a motorhome and enclosed trailer setup. I usually take out from 4 to 5 bikes and no quads. I would like to buy a quad for trail riding, towing possibly, cooler transporter, pit bike, night rides, gas delivery, just plain fun etc... As you can see I have a wide variety of uses planned. I have a background of three wheelers as a kid, but little experience with quads. I usually ride Hondas only but I will be open to suggestions. I am currently looking at the LTZ400, the 400EX, a 2001 Raptor 660 still new, a warrior 350, a 250EX and possibly a Polaris. I want liquid cooled but thats not the most important issue, I need reverse, electric start, racks(aftermarket is ok) and as light as possible. Power is not an issue too much is ok, not enough is not ok. I am done rambling please let me know your thoughts. Thanks, Donnie

My neighbor has the yamoto 110, he said he would sell it for 500, but it is small and not a "major brand" I am willing to spend around 4k if I can find the right fit.

If you can't pronounce the name, it may not be a great idea.

The Suzuki LTZ is a great quad for anyone. Their power is real linear, they have a ton of parts available aftermarket (racks, ETC), and can be opened up to really run.

Sounds like what you want.

Hello,
I may be wrong but I don't think any of those have racks for hauling; I guess they'd be ok if you towed everything.
