How Big is too Big

I am considering buying my first ATV I want a new 4Wheeler. I have been checking out all the websites but I am not sure how much power is too much. I am 210 lbs and will be doing a lot of trail riding I want something that will be able to move me along with my buddies but I don't want to pay for more power than I need
Thanks for any advice

Re: How Big is too Big

josh,
I bought 2 ex 400's in january and we really like them!! I am 6'3IN AND 250# AND THESE THINGS GET BUSY!!! They really shine in the trails, and they really run upstairs (top end) Now, I'm pretty sure a stock banshee will get by it in the end, but, NOT BY MUCH!! Can't wait to try, though. Hope this helps!!
Mark

Re: How Big is too Big

Hey Josh, if trails\forest are your thing, i would get a 400EX. They have low end torque and are reliable.

I have a Banshee, and it is suitable for wide open desert and sand dunes. It is all mid-top end power. Ive ridden for a very short time in tight forest on a trip to AZ, and it was no fun.

Just for comparisson, im 5'11"@184lb. I would say to get a minimum of 350cc.

Re: How Big is too Big

i bought a 2000 yamaha warrior 350. it's great. a 400ex will smoke me anyday, but i can back up if i need to. and i'm about 6'3", and about 260, so it will move you pretty good.
