Nice bike.

I was thinking about getting a Can-Am DS 450X but in the end I decided on a Yamaha Raptor 700SE.

thats a 4wheeler............

just messing with ya man, i ride with a guy thats got an 800 and man that thing is huge, borderline to big for riding trails, you made a good choice with the 400 but you will want more power so get ready for those mods, time for a lift tires rims snorkels intake exhause clutch kit jet kit and so on and so forth

i cant really think of a good sized atv that would fit in a ranger... the beds are just too small. i have to take mine over the wheel humps. it barely squeezes in there.

my 700 fits in the bed...wasnt so easy to first time tho. My wheels wells have a slight dent from the rims of the four wheeler but now it just slides on back in there.

and good choice on the can-am! my dad rides a Renegade 800. fastest four wheeler ive been on...

ATV's really grew in the last 10 years. the're the size of small cars now. lol

Good buy man.

Tip for mud, keep the RPMs up. Most Can-Am's have a hydraulic run front drive. In order for it to kick in the fluid has to be moving and thats controlled by the engine RPM.

At least thats how it used to be....
