Motocross/hare scrambles are my main hobby (on my KTM EXC dirt bike), yet several buddys are into trail riding their quads, thus I am considering getting a sport quad. Here is what I am looking at: 2004 LTZ400 mint/stock/low hours for $2800 2008 LTZ400 brand new for $4500 (2006 Predator mint/stock $3200) Seaching here has revealed that: 03 LTZ400 had a weak frame 05 LTZ400 had a problem with _________ (magnesium cover?) 08 suspension is better than the 04 Since I am new to the quad world, I am inclined to get the 04 since it will be easier to recoup my money if I don't like it. Does this make sense? Is the 08 such a good deal that I should jump on it? Any other major differences between the 04 and 08? I am missing something? Anything else I should consider? Help me decide! Thanks for your $0.02.
