Default DVX vs. 400EX

Which of these quads would you say was better. A DVX400 or a 400EX when it comes to power, price, and reliabilty.

What irritates me is!
Those 6-packs work pretty good.

dvx newer design, however the 400ex might top it in reliability.

well for 05 they are both the same price, I woul defenatly say the dvx has more power, but the 400ex is by no means a dog.... i havent had any real problems out of my dvx, but u really cant beat a honda's reliabilty

Suzuki copied the 400EX geometry, and then put a better engine in it. The Z (and its variously colored clones) is the best all-around machine currently available!

Well, the Predator has my vote for best play toy. But each to his own, I guess.

He did say all around. I was on a YFZ, up against a tree. I got off and pulled. This same tree with the Z-400 I clicked it into reverse and let the clutch out.

I think they are both great, but have different places to shine. I would not ride a YFZ in Western Washington trails.

As for the DVX against the 400ex. I did motor work and then beat a Z. I think they are better then the Hondas, I bought mine in 01 so the newer quads were not here yet.

I did say ALL-AROUND! The YFZ is a bike for the track, which can be adapted for the trail. The Z is a trail bike, which can be adapted for the track.

I do however prefer the EX for really slow, more technical trail rides. It can be lugged down, and doesn't mind being ridden slow, where the Z likes to rev and therefore requires some clutch slipping.

I think the 400ex is the most reliable for trial riding and some racing.. IMO
