    We have a couple of sayings at our shop.
    1. Friends don't let friends buy suzuki.
    2. For those who don't know.......suzuki.

    I'd go Kawasaki or Yamaha!

    It's an 89 Toyota Pickup. I got some stuff done to it.. FJ axles going under it soon.
    I'd go Kawi or Yamaha..I'm a Honda man at heart but the TRX just plain SLOW as fuck. Suzukis suck, the YZF is a DAMN quick bike..I've rode one and it ripped my shoulders off almost, gobs and gobs of power..it's a tad faster then my KFX450 though..just a little.

    My KFX450 is a jackrabbit and it's a 08...I've ripped new assholes on modded Banshees, tore up TRX's, made Suzukis go home, and other shit all day at Drags @ Pismo, and all I got is pipe and slight tweak on EFI system, and one down on gearing.

    Lots of torque, easy to throw around, has reverse(find 450 race quad with reverse, sounds stupid but you'll LOVE it once you use it a few times), and easy to maintain.


    Don't go Katoom..it might go KABOOM.

    If you do a lot of track riding, get the KTM. If you just wanna hit up some trails and still do some track riding, get the YFZ. If you wanna get your ass handed to you every time, get the LTR or TRX.

    Alot of people have the best of both worlds.


    Once you get a 450 quad, you'll realize what your missing out on.
    They are insanely fun..most of the time. Sometimes they are just a plain b1tch! and I wanna push it off a f^cking cliff :infantry:

    Do you plan to race? Because if you are not planning to race or ride in sand only you should buy a 4x4. I had a yfz450 which i loved and i raced it 2-3 times a week and was able to whomp on everyone else but the second i took it on my trails by my house it sucked big time, got stuck a lot and was practically useless. Ktm's are also great but they are damn pricey

    Well I owned a YFZ450 for the past six years and there wasn't anything it couldn't do with some speed, track or trail and if I were to buy another it would be another one.
