Decesion time what ya think?

I have a 05 kfx 400 def gonna keep it but I was thinking of adding some more quads to the garage. Had been looking at some used raptors 700 in my area today I ran across a 05 kfx 700 super clean and send to be a pretty good price, so I need to decide quick. Any input from you guys. Time is key cause I've already missed some good deals draggingsing my feet. Thanks

Fun machine, big and plush ride. Not as easy to upgrade, IMO but you can do some things. Our group leader rides one, has towed us all home at one time or another in the dunes. Cost me a little bit, but at least I am faster up the hill than him now..

2007 LTZ 400.. 94mm J&E piston, +4mm hotrods crank, 536webb cams,wiseco valves, 39mm fcr, tokyo mods throttle spring, honda thumb throttle,spring removed. yoshimura full exhaust, honda 400ex intake tube, no air box

They are all good in their own way. If you could ride one on the trails you like, you would figure it out fast. Or you could get one of each!

I hate Yamaha so I would say anything but one of those KFX700s are great but tricky to ride since they are taller.

Raptor 700 Easy. I am a suzuki guy through and through but have to give credit where its due. Picked up an 06' 700R back in 2017.

-Very comfortable
-Similar ride to the Z
-Maintenance is easier than any other machine I've had. No shims for valve adjustments and no need to pull a valve cover/chain tensioner, etc.., spark plug is easy access, chain adjustment easy.
-Less than $1k to be over 60hp and still be dead reliable
-Torque for days
-They share the same front suspension with the carbed YFZ450 so they handle extremely well.
-Pretty light for being a big bore sport quad. In fact, I think they might be a few pounds lighter than the 09+ EFI Z400s.

-2004 Suzuki LT-Z400 (Stolen)
-2006 Suzuki LT-R450 (Sold)
-2006 Raptor 700R
-2008 Suzuki LT-Z400
