Thinking about getteing a suzuki Z400 ATV what do you think about them? How do they c

Hi, i am looking at a 03 Suzuki Z 400 ATV, it is yellow with shock covers nurf bars and full skid plates, bumpers and aftermarket seat. the only thing i don't like is the graphic kit they put on it, I probably will take them off and either get another kit or leaves it all yellow what do you guys think? it is at a dealer, what would you say it is worth?

plus how do you compare them to other quads, the only other quad I rode latley is a 660r raptor and I used to own a old fourtrax. thanks

2002 B&W GSX-R 750,Graves Full Ti System, PC 3 R,TRE "Switchable",CR9EIX Iridium, Galfer SS brake lines,Framesliders, L&P Intergrator kit, L&P front flush mounts,ZG DB smoked screen,86Z28 redone from the ground up and worked, Ready for road racing.

z400's are good quads, they handle good and have good power. It won't have as much power as the raptor, but will handle much better.

Hey, good choice on the z, I used to have one. Now I have a 450r, I should say 500R. If the rappy is just piped and jetted, a set of hot cams(intake and exhaust), yank that air box lid, rejet and a pulsecharger exhaust you'll be runnin with the rappys. Don't get me wrong rappys CAN be fast. It's like anything else, it's not what you buy, it's what you build.......Good luck

I have a honda 400ex and it is similar to the z 400 in some aspects. Just not fuel injected. I have it piped and jetted so they are pretty equal in speed. The z 400 is a lot better now though because they have res front shocks. I like the fuel injection also. I wanted one but didnt have the money. Now I want a 450. My buddy has a yfz450 and it rips. I rode a raptor before. They are fast just handled like crap. The new ones are wider though. I know the earlier z 400 had a problem with broken swingarms and cracking frames. But they gusseted the frames on the newer ones. I would look into it if I were you. Even if you bought it already.

z400

we flat tracked against some 400's and 450's also a raptor or two. the 450's were definately the quicker of the 3. of course we are old school with a 1987lt500r that flat out gets it and is very hard to beat.

Right on! The old "Quadzilla." Even with all the new high-tech 4-stroke technology that dominates the market now, it's still hard to beat a big 500cc two-stroke in the dirt. Long live old school!
