Thanks for all the links, I'll start looking into them.
I'm looking to pick up a sport quad for me and need to research them some as i really know nothing about them.
The 2 that seem to keep popping up for me are the Honda TRX400ex and the Yamaha raptor 660. I'm trying to stay in the $2000-$2500 range and these seem to be around there for '00-'01 models. I'm not dead set on these, they just seem to be the most that I find forsale within my travel range.
I know I do not want a Banshee as I can't stand the way they look.
I beg to differ. Avoid the 01 Raptor at all costs. They were plagued with transmission failures. You may get one that has been updated, but I don't want someone else's repair job.660 all the way
More power than the 400, reliable engine, and reverse.
I recommend you pile your pennies until you can afford a used 450. It's a much better long term investment if you want to ride fast. I have gotten good seat time on nearly ever sport quad out there, and from what I have seen, these are my recommendations.
You might also consider an 07/08 Yamaha Wolverine 450... its classified as more of a utility quad, but its plenty fast and handles well in our tight 1 acre single track with trees.We do mainly trail riding. We already have the Blaster and a Polaris Sportsman 500. She started out riding the Polaris and I was running the Blaster, then she learned how to ride it, now she rides that and I am on the Sportsman. The blaster was underpowered and to small for me (5'11"). The Sportsman is to big and bulky for any fun trail riding, it's great for just putzing around the woods on though.
