2009 TRX400X or 2008 Outlaw 525 irs

Hi, I currently have a 2009 trx400x with around 40 hours with only a Lexx Mxe slip-on, tusk handguards, and 450r front shocks. My friend has a 2008 outlaw 525 irs for sale with under 10 hours on it. It has a bumper, grab bar, and trail tech vapor computer. Would it be a good idea to sell mine and buy his? Are the Outlaws reliable? I would be able to sell mine for a similar price that i could buy his for.

It really depends on your riding style for what one you want. How do you ride? Also if I remember right the outlaws are IRS and are incredibly fast

I eat breath and shit 400EX but if I were you I would get the outlaw. Its real fast and reliable. 5th gear wheelies can be done on them. The IRS makes for a comfortable and predictable trail ride

I ride mostly all trails and sometimes go to the track, but only a few times a year.

I love 400ex's as well, but if you want something faster this would be the quad. People will hate because it's a Polaris, but truth is these things scream and will beast most 450's.

How reliable are the Outlaw's? Because Iknow my 400ex is gonna last. I just don't want to regret getting the Outlaw if it breaks down a year after I get it and wish I still had my 400ex, which woud surely be running.

Its watercooled cooled so more moving parts. Air cooled usually last longer but if taken care of a watercooled will last just as long. Watercooles motors tend to make more power per cc than aircooled. I know two outlaw owners. One is almost stock and the other is just below drag bike. Both havent suffered any breakdowns yet. It is a Polaris and not a Honda so you do lose some reliability there though

Make sure you ride the IRS first. I tried a 700xx and hated the fact that is was IRS. For my 4x4 IRS is great but on a sport bike I feel much safer with the SRA but then I really really like to make them powerslide at high speed.

Yup the irs does take some time to get used to. Once you get used to it will be fine. With the Popo you dont have to use as much body language in the turns as you can power through them. The 525 is setup way different than the 700xx.
Again I love my 400EX to bits and will probably have it for the rest of my riding days (all money issues aside) but if given this choice I would go with tje 525. Its really an all around better riding machine.

I can believe it and I dont really have anything against a polaris, if you don't abuse them they actually hold up pretty well. I just knew both the 700 I rode and my rancher tend to go around corners with the inside rear tire off the ground when you really get them going. If polaris has fixed the problem then they probably have a heck of a machine.
