Shut up please. I said quads and I am pretty sure I can sell a $1500 quad for $1500 when I am done using it.

^^ Can't be made fast within a budget. Handles nowhere near that of an 07 and up raptor.

Elusive is probably right. I guess either the 400ex or a Suzuki 400

The ex400 is way more forgiving of a ride than a raptor will ever be...it's not about speed it's about comfort

Right. The raptor has a wider stance, longer wheelbase and better shocks(07-present) I'm sure you're right tho.

Having ridden both, the raptor is racer built for speed and beats the shit out of you, the ex400 is just a sport quad

I knew it. You were right!!
I too have ridden both; I owned a 05 and an 07 Raptor. 07 was waaaaayyy better. But then again if you weigh 200+ like me the raptor may not be so bad.

four-dubya-dee with BDMTs and snorkels. Something quads are actually good at, boggin' with a dirty thirty on the rack. Anything else, get a dirtbike so you can live life free of shame.
