Hi guys

I am looking to get an 4wheeler, by spring. So at this point i am not in a huge rush. I am in kind of a pickle in my head about what to do.


1) I am a dirt biker at heart
2) All my friends are picking up wheelers.
3) There are not many trails at allow bikes on wheeler trails around here. Also i am not really into MX or SX.
4) I dont have a cottage to ride at.

I would prefer a dirt bike over a wheeler. but because of 2 and 3 i feel that is the best bet for the most usage would be a wheeler...


As for my history on bikes and wheelers...im 24 now.
I got my first bike when i was 6 and rode bikes until i was 16 when i decided i wanted to ride the streets. i rode wheelers since i was 10, and still kind of do. but the utility types (220 bayou 's, 450 Kodiak's, Ranchers, ect.)

Most of the riding i will be doing is on the trails and the occasional track (if the wheeler is designed for that)

the other wheelers i will be riding with will be
07 Honda TRX
07 Polaris Outlaw
Honda 450 EX (iirc)

I really liked that TRX Allot! and thats kind of what i am looking at, but i would rather stay with Kawi, but i dont know much about there line up. I haven't had a chance to ride the Kawi.

So i am asking for help picking one out. and Is there a good Dirt bike and Wheeler forum out there somewhere? I would perfer to pick up a used one because of $$$. But i wont mind buying a new one if its worth it. If that makes sense.

^^^What he said. I just picked up a used 06 suzuki ltz 400. Same as the kfx 400 and dvx 400. Great quad and you can find them for under 3k if you look hard enough

if your getting a sport quad..I wouldnt go with the kawi. If you want to leave your buddys in the dust, look into the KTM 525xc quads. they are flat out insane.

I personally wouldnt buy a sport quad cause it would never get into the places that I take my kawi brute force 750. but the way I have my big 750 set up right now, I can hang with the little 400 and 450 sport quads no problems.

Welcome! Well for ATV's I had a 2005 TRX450r which was awesome. Then I bought a 2006 LTR-450 and I loved it. It really depends on how you want to ride though. With the honda I was riding trails/racing and when I got the LTR mainly all I did was race. What are you looking to do?
