    im looking for a quad for my girlfriend. there is no way i want her on a bike cause shes super little and i know when she falls she will be scared.

    so what is a good quad for a 5' 4" 100 lbs girl?

    i want a 2x4 for sand and trail riding. and if your selling one hit me up.

    Can she shift gears??? If not, I would say go with like a suzuki ltz250. Has an auto clutch seperate front and rear brakes as well as a combined brake. If she can shift it opens up your options. You can get her a yamaha raptor 250 or 350, being that she is only 100lbs, I would say she would have a blast on the 250!!!

    kawasaki lakota sport. It's a 300 and it has foot shifting without the clutch. Its torquey though and fun to ride.

    Had tons on the Taco's.... new truck is pretty stock
    Honda TRX400EX from 05+.
    They're the newer styled ones with reverse but the rest of the machine is the same as it was from 99 so there are tons of parts around and a lot of aftermarket support. Plus those old hondas run forever with basic maintenance!
    You should be able to find one for like $2500 too

    Yamaha Raptor 250.... it's lightweight (great for someone your wife's size). From what I've read, it's the most fun to ride out of all the 250s. Quite a bit of aftermarket support out there for them. Also it has a clutch/manual transmission.

    I'd go with the 250... don't even consider the 350, it's just a really old Yamaha design (the Warrior) with some new bodywork over it. Handles awful. Go with the 250 IMO.

    And this is coming from a guy who rides two Honda dirtbikes and a Suzuki 450 sport quad!

    caged, camburg long travel, 50t leafpack (soon to be installed) light rack over cab, 5pt harnesses etc
    get her a honda 400ex. they are great bikes. not alot of power, but has enough to get the job done. a smaller person can ride it. they are tanks, do not break very easily.

    alot of people are suggesting the 400ex (trx400ex) so ii would gon with this bike. i have found a couple really cheap ones. like a 2000 for 1200 near me!

    I've got my 05 YFZ450 for sale. I'm quite a ways from you and it might be a little more machine than you want for her. It is all stock, I have aluminum skids for the A arms and swing arm, and alba full nerf bars and paddles and smoothies on seperate wheels. I'm asking $3,500 if you're interested.
