Glad I picked the 400ex

I was considering the 400ex and the 600r. I chose the 400ex and I am one happy camper. TONS of power. I cant imagine needing anymore. Nice sturdy feel to it. Proven reliability. In a word... WOOT!

Re: Glad I picked the 400ex

give it about 2 to 3 months, and you will be looking for more power. dont worry though, if you had gotten the 660R it would have been the same thing, just maybe a little longer before you were wanting more. just out of curiousity, did you ride both before you bought? or just listen to the reviews?

Re: Glad I picked the 400ex

I had a 300ex prior to buying the 400. I never *really* needed more power but i'll have to admit I kinda craved a bit more than the 300 would give me. I have never rode a raptor although my cousin just bought one so i'll get my chance soon. I read reviews, and asked around the message boards mostly. What really made my buy the 400ex was the dimensions. The raptor is taller, narrower, shorter, and heavier. I didnt want any part of that. I only weigh 140lbs, so pretty much anything above 300cc's is going to toss my ass around easy. I went for the stability and the proven reliability.
I do love the looks of that 660r though, and miss the reverse. I hope they change it a bit and make the center of gravity a bit lower, that's a HUGE issue. I could tell just buy sittng on one in the shop that it felt wrong for me. I'll actually get to beat on the 660r this week if I remember i'll post back here even if the ride proves me wrong. =) I kinda hope it does.
