Default new here some advice please :)

hey everyone I'm totally new to the world of atv I've had a few mx bikes in my time but never a quad I'm thinking of getting a road legal quad and have been looking at yamaha raptor 660 and the 700. I'm just wondering what should i be looking for when buying a quad etc, thing like that is there a particular one that is more reliable than the other, is one better on the road the the other etc, I'm hoping to use a quad for on and off road use so a good all rounder. is the yamaha raptor a good machine in general ? and are they ok for new riders as i mentioned i have 2 wheeled experience but no atv xp all info tips general advice recommendations will be greatly appreciated many thanks

It all depends on what state you live in whether or not quads are allowed on the street. Might want to check with your local police before biting the bullet and buying a quad. No personal experience but most I've heard say the Raptor 700 is better than the 660 in many ways. Top speed, better clutch, etc.

Not a state Moose. I was wondering where he was from and his profile says GB (Great Britain). I've also heard the Raptor 700 is better than the 660 in many ways.

The efi in the 700 alone makes it better than the 660. Again, check your local laws before you decide to rip down the road on an atv that might end up impounded by local police. I have seen tons of videos where people deliberately ride illegally on pavement to get chased by police and then elude them because they can't catch them. That kind of behavior is not only dangerous but makes the rest of us look bad. All it takes is one car not doing what you expect and bam you're lying on your back on the road, unable to get up.
