When I first started looking for quads, I was choosing between the Honda TRX 400, Yamaha Raptor 350, and the Suzuki Z400. I then narrowed it down to the Raptor and the Z. All reviews said the Honda always lost in races against the Z and it didn't have reverse. I soon decided on the Z becauase everyone said the Raptor couldn't keep up with the Z or the others. I got my Z about 5 days ago and went riding at Octillo Wells for New Years. It was amazing. I went from 1st to 5th gear extremely fast. I was looking for a Honda TRX 400 to race. All the ones I found wouldn't race. One guy had a pipe and still wouldn't race. Every hill I pointed at, it went up with ease. If you get this quad and don't know how to use a clutch yet, I would suggest starting on a smaller dirtbike because they are easier to learn on. There is only one thing I would change about this bike, the rear where the bottom of the chain is at is pretty low. If you like riding on trails and following all the jeeps like I do, you should get a skid plate.
Upgrades/Accessories: None yet but a skid plate, nerf bars, and a pipe are coming eventually.
