What can we say about the 400ex. We consider it to be one of the greatest
pioneer bikes. A very well rounded quad that has a virtually bullet proof
motor. This bike works well for the track, trail, desert, dunes, racing or
just for fun. A very comfortable and enjoyable bike to ride. Over the past
years the 400ex has been bashed for not having a lot of power (compared to the
new quads) but lets not forget it's the bike that rejuvenated the ATV industry.
It may not be the fastest bike out there, but we LOVE it!!
Our recommendation on this bike is +2 or +3 A arms and +1 1Ž4 swing arm. The
reason for the longer swing arm is to make the weight bias just right. The
400ex has a very light front end (this make a great wheelie machine). We do
not really recommend going forward with the A arms. Doing this would transfer
more weight to the rear wheels creating more "hook up" than it already has.
We would also recommend running 4-1 front wheels instead of the stock 3-2 set
up. This changes the scrub radius for better, and allows +3 arms while
retaining the width of +2 with stock wheels.
