I ride a 2001 Honda Foreman 450, Man I love it that thing goes anywhere Over logs, deep streams it seams unstopable so far have not got it stuck at all.
I regret that I have but one life to give for my hunting buddies.
yamaha 250 timberwolf 4x4 think it is a 98 model.....250 is a good motor
and mine has trouble starting in cold weather too.....raised hell about it since it was brand new and all i could get was "that is the nature of the beast"....i have to adgust the screw at the bottom of carb, fuel mixture-idle screw not sure what it is.
but that seems to help cause pulling choke out all the way doesn't...plus the damn thing spins over way to slow when it gets cold....maybe i should go to a lighter oil.
this is when it is around +25 out side when it gets around to 35-40 degrees it cranks without a problem
I got an 86 suzuki 230 quadsport. I bought it last year cheap! $500 It runs great!
I ride a 1969 ROKON Trailbreaker (why)
Because this machine will go where no other ATV will follow!!
(THE WORLDS FIRST AND ONLY TRUE ATV)
Yamaha is the only way. I ride a 01 Raptor that is jetted, air filter, exaust, changed sprocket. It flies! I also ride a yfz 450. Have the parts for filter, jet, exhaust and cam mod. I just need more hours on it to break it in. Also a 400 ex. It is way slower than the others. I think im addicted.
We mainly ride Hondas but have owned Suzukis and own a few Yamahas now. I choose Honda because over the years they have prooven to be good reliable machines. I currently own - 2003 Honda CR125, 1997 Honda CR250, 2001 Honda XR200, 2001 Honda XR100, 2003 Yamaha PW80, 2003 Yamaha TTR90, 2004 Yamaha YFZ450, 1984 Honda ATC200s, 1988 Suzuki DR125, 1982 Suzuki GS850, and quite a few 1974 Honda MR50s.
I ride a 2002 Honda 450 Foreman with 27"x12" Outlaws on the rear and 27"x 9.5" on the front. I put on a White Brothers pipe, jet kit and 3000# Warn winch. I also have a 92 Honda 300 4x4. Honda, there is no substitute!
2003 ARCTIC CAT 400 4X4 with a Warn 2500 winch .
I gotta say, I love my 03 Yamaha YZF R1. With almost 165hp to the wheels, there is'nt too many vehicles out there that can match the performance. Since this is my 5th sport bike I'm trying my best to keep it on two wheels instead of one.
I'm also planning on buying a dirt bike and was wondering which bike you guys think is the best. I was thinking Honda CR250 or some thing like that.
The muzzle end of a .45 pretty much says "go away" in every language.
I've got a '99 or '00 Yamaha Kodiak. It's my first. Was originally looking at the AC's and the Hondas and leaning toward the Hondas. However, the Kodiak came up in the paper and was too good a deal to pass up. Had less than 50 miles on it and i got it for $2500. The gentleman i got it from said his Dr told him to get rid of it and start walking. Shoot, the feller lives on the side of a mountain. Walking may have been safer, but riding wouldn't leave a feller panting!!!
I ride it around the wanna-be-ranch right now. Tow a trailer to feed the horses and cows. I'm looking forward to hunting season though! By then I may put some new tires on it - any suggestions? Also, were is the best online prices for accesories? (tires, parts, etc).
ive got a 82 xl500 ,gotta love those thumpers,and a goldwing for the hard top.

I ride a wr 400 f
wife rides a ttr 250

hunting rig is a Suzuki lt 230 eh that i bought for $800
Vegitarian:Old Indian word for bad hunter.
I was riding a KLR 650, but it never seemed to work out to take it off the highway. Not sure how I'd have slung a hog or deer over that seat anyway.
After a few thousand miles, the chain would stretch beyond adjustment and I averaged new chain and sprockets every 8-9 months!
Finally said the heck with it, and moved to a Kawasaki ZG-1000. It'll look kinda funny pulling into hunting camp, but it sure is a lot more comfy on the highway!
I'll post up pictures of my backcountry ride later.
He has no gallery to applaud or disapprove of his conduct... Whatever his acts, they are dictated by his own conscience rather than a mob of onlookers. It is difficult to exaggerate the importance of this fact.
I ride a Sportsman 500 HO, & my 12 yr. old has a 330 Polaris Trailboss. Never had a problem with either of them. Mine will climb right along with my friends 660 grizzly. If there is a down side, Polaris needs to make different jets for elev. over 9,000 ft.
Got a new 2004 Suzuki 400 Eiger 4x4 auto 2 weeks ago..love it. It has selector for 2 or 4x4, and auto trans with low or high gears.
I have an 01 Yamaha bear tracker Nice machine gets throught the woods easy and will do all I need, also have a 1985 Honda fourtrax I bought it from my Little brother for $300 he bought it new when he was stationed in Guam this thing is near bullet proof I will eventuarly need a new rear Axel for it the splines are almost gone where the lugs fittings attach.

Gotta go with trailbreaker on this one. The Rokon is the king of earth travel. Nothing compares to the overland travel, weight capacity, climbing ability, side hills and deep snow or mud, and simplicity to maintain. I owned about a dozen off road machines before I saw the light. However once I bought my first one and drove to areas my 4X4 ATV could only dream of I saw the light. I now own two of them. An original with a 2 stroke and a new version with a 4 stroke. I have decided to sell the two stroke just because I cannot use two of them any longer.
If you want an ATV for travel on gravel roads or established trails then a 4X4 is fine. However if you are really serious about ATV off road travel without roads or level ground then the Rokon is the undisputed king of off road travel. I would also insist that before any one questions this they need to ride one first. One ride in difficult terrain should do it. You will see in a single ride what that thing is capable of and you will not likely ever consider a 4X4 ATV again!

Started out with 85 350 Honda Foreman, tough machine!!! Tried a 1996 400 Kaw., had trouble getting started, Bought a 1996 500 Sportsman new, Still have, only has 2200 miles on it. Had an awful lot of trouble with it,[might have been because of the 17 yr. old riding it]!!!!!! Love the way it handles and feels when on it, other than it doesn't have all wheel or 4 wheel drive when going down a hill. Won't buy another, next time it'll be a 650 honda!!!!
Have a 02 Artic Cat 500 4x4 manual trans independant suspension.Dependable,starts every time witin seconds no matter how cold,Lots of torque,not real fast.If I ever buy another ATV it will be another Artic Cat 500.
I have a 2002 Suzuki Vinson 500 with a Ramsey ATV3000 winch on the front. Like both well and the only negatives on the Suzuki is that the gear shift locks up about once a year and the back disc brake squeals. Other than that, a real nice ride and winch system. Bought it because the place I purchased it gave me a good trade in on my old bike, a yamaha 250 beartracker. Good little bike, but needed something bigger to pull my trailer around once on site.

Honda rancher 4x4
Honda and reliable go hand in hand.
Adversity does not build character, it reveals it.
2005 Honda Rancher no bells or whistles, but I like
everything about it so far
250R it may be old, but its still fast
400EX (in the process of squeezing a KTM 520 in)
450R wifes new one
I ride an 05 Kingquad 700 because I couldn't find another that was it's equal. This thing has it all, power, handling, low center of gravity. It hauls 300lb. of deer feed and me through the Ky. mountains so much better than anything else I have owned. It will start easily (Fuel injection) at 10 degrees F.
Can't beat the dependability of Honda though.
Bigamy is defined as having one too many wives...............The same as Monogamy I guess
I have a 2006 Honda Rancher 500. Have had it almost a year and have no complaints yet. It is a 2WD and have went everywhere my buddy's 4x4's have gone.
I have always been a Suzuki owner. From street bikes through ATV's. I have an 04 Eiger(Nice picTX1) I have a red Eiger also. My recent addition was an 07 KQ 700 Camo. EFI is the way to go along with independant 4 wheel suspension.
On a note, I was hoping to hook up with some Central California riding partners. Fresno area, even as far as San Jose if they want to make the drive. I want to do some back wood trekking into the Sierra's. I was hoping to find some folks that want to go camping on quads. Maybe fish along a river. Seems such a shame that we have these things and we are stuck riding on managed properties and drive in circles.
Argo Bigfoot 6 by 6. It's amphibious and has tracks for deep snow. It handles everything we can throw at it.
04 Polaris 400 Sportsman 4X4. Has a great ride and plows snow very well. I also cut grass with it using a 44 " rear pull along mower deck with a 10.5 hp engine.
A broken clock is right twice a day...
my dad and i just bought a new 2006 Jianshe mountian lion 400 which you hardcore yamaha guys should kno that jianshe is half owned by yamaha. i think it has the same engine as the kodiak 400 anyways brand new going through the breaking in period.
