What Quad\'s should we buy ?

Me and my brother want new ATV's coz we got bored on the one's we have now.

My brother and I ride ATV's all our lifes, I'm 14 and my brother is 8.

My brother has a LT-50 and can do almost any stunt/trick on it, even wheelie and 2-wheeler.

I have a Yamaha Badger and can do any trick. Even very high wheelie's.

My brother can also operate my Badger very good, he ceeps it very good under controle at top speed.

And I want something that has:
-Strong power.
-High speed.
-Very good suspension.
-And user friendly.

I was thinking of a Suzuki Z-250, Honda 250EX, Yamaha Blaster or even a Suzuki Z400 or Yamaha Raptor 660R.
And my brother wants a Yamaha Raptor 80 or something like that.

My ATV also has to be usable for my father and has to have some good HP.

And also tell the reasons why you recommend that ATV.

Thank you.

Re: What Quad\'s should we buy ?

You could ask me what toaster to buy, and it's the same answer. Suzuki.

But for youth quads, I like Kasea. They do have a 250 with a Honda Rebel motor on it. It's cheap and supposed to run fast.

Re: What Quad\'s should we buy ?

Well, I'm only interested in Yamaha, Suzuki and Honda.
I heard that Kawasaki's frame's are bad.
A friend of mine had a KFX400 and in a few months the frame broke, he now has a KFX700 and he's 16 years old.

I think i'll take the Z-250.

Going from an 80 to a 250 or 400 is insane. Go with the Kasea 170 or the Blast 175. Price is around $2500.

Don't forget that that KFX400 is a Green Suzuki Z-400... As for the z-250, I'm not so sure about turning a utility quad (Ozark 250) in to a sport quad... maybe it would work.. my Eiger 400 will really move, but I don't think it would take to jumping too well. The did redo the suspension on the Z-250 to give it more travel.

my dad just told me that he only wants a ATV with Shaft-Drive, he'll never buy a ATV with a chain.

Go with the 250 ex it looks good, runs good,shaft driven and its not that big it also has a semi auto clutch wich is a nice way to step up in too the bigger bikes. [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img]
