Never ridden a blaster, but am all for the 400ex, best all around quad I have ever had. Bulletproof reliable and tough as nails, my friend beats the dog shit out of his and it has never left him stranded yet except when the chain broke last summer, but that wasn't technically mechanical, more of a dummy not oiling his chain before every ride. :rolleyes:

I've ridden a blaster and an xr400 (same motor as the 400ex) the 400 had much better power output. Also it's indestructible.

Get a z400 they have reverse. The 05 up 400ex has reverse also.

Blasters are small and fun for a little but get old. I had one now ride a z400.

You can make a mean little blaster for cheap, I wouldn't be afraid to own one.

Very true. I've seen Blasters hold their own against 421 banshee cubs.

My buddy had a bored and stroked one with head work and a few other things and it used to walk away from my kfx 440.

Well Ive had a blaster and ex400..now have an ltz400...Blaster completly differnt but definatly inexpensive to own and maintain. But if you want reverse youll have to go four stroke..Blasters two stroke power is fun for sure..

get a blaster, for like 1200 you can bore it to 240 and get a 3mm stroker crank, advanced timing and a bunch of stuff, once u do that they rip. you can get all that from vitos. i would go blaster

really id say its more about your height im like 6 1 and i cant ride a blaster way to small and to narrow for my liking but you can throw them around no problem. i like the ltz 400 personally. but like the guy said he had a kfx 440 which is the same motor as the ltz

I would go blaster. Check out Ken O'Connor Racing. He did the rechamberd head and port n polish on mine. VF3 reed, fmf exhaust , 34mm Pj, thing rips and pulls hard.

im just curious, why do yall think you need reverse and electric start on a quad? i dont see the point in it, all that does is add extra weight have the possiblity of leaving you stranded someing with a dead battery. ive rode with out either for 5+ years and just no reverse for longer. never had a problem
