    Get the 400, they don't have all that much power, the 300 will leave you wanting more

    I would get the 400ex or try to find a suzuki z400 if you are looking for a good trail sport bike....don't get me wrong, I love honda....but I had a z400 and i could outrun all the 400ex's on the trails, road, and track...I had it for 5 yrs and never had any problems out of it.

    Definitely get the 400! The 300's arent that fast, the suspension isnt as good, and the overall size of the chassis is more cramped. The 300 is better for a learning teen.

    yea i have a 07 400ex and after you get used to riding it you want to go faster and jump higher. the best mod i have done to mine so far is fairly cheap is get a set of 450r shocks and slap on there.

    Im picking up the 400 after work today. Its already got nerf bars, a pipe, and +2" A arms and widened axle.

    can these fit in the back of our trucks with no problem? Can I use normal ramps or do I need extended ones since Im lifted?

    I have my dads trailer to go pick it up with but thats not really convienient to use every time I wanna ride

    The 400 isn't bad except for it being air cooled.

    your not bad except for being air cooled :p

    It was a toss up between this or the Z400. priced both at 2,000. but the Z was down in dallas, about a 4 hour round trip, the 400 was 15 mins away.... Im not worried about it, if I look into it anymore I'll end up regretting not getting the Z and being pissed at myself.

    Nah it's a great bike. This stock looking one with an old guy riding it beat the hell out of my bike at Glamis one. Turns out it was bored and stroked, polished head, cam and other crap all on a quiet exhaust. Just remember to watch your idle times.
