Whats the deal? My kid and I raced across out field today and he beat me every time with a stock 250ex. My Foreman is not stock and I am not impressed! Does this sound right, or is this thing that slow?

bike built for speed vs a bike built for checking the fences on the ol' farm

all sport quads are faster then most utes unless you crack er open and mod the piss out of it.

Sounds correct, my wife spanked my butt everytime with her stock 250EX vs my (ex) Modded Foreman. No contest AND she wasn't even reving it out far !!

If you think that's bad, don't even think about racing a 400EX

Dont be upset, my old 1985 250sx three wheeler would whip my foreman all day. The sadder thing is it could skid almost as much timber as my foreman as long as it was dry out.

Don't even think about riding his little 250EX on the trails at speed... you'll be SORRY. That is what lead me down the path to the "dark side"

BTDT!

Since I added the trailer hitch to my 400EX (see photo) I found I could haul just as much wood with my ATV trailer out of the woods as I did before with the Foreman... Now of course if it got real sloppy muddy it would be an issue.

Also I haven't figured out a way to mount my snow plow to it either.. JUST KIDDING!!

In a perfect world you should have one of each!! My Dad has my Foreman so it is still available if I really need it.

the biggest bike i ever beat was a 400cc sport bike, 400ex, kfx400,z400, i raced them all and beat them. i raced a 250ex one time and i was done with the race and he was only about 1/4 down the track.

Where in the name Foreman made you think you had a dragster. Its doing what it was meant to do. 600lbs plus rider compared to 300lbs plus. Now hitch the EX to a sixteen foot tandem trailer and see were it gets.

That has to suck to have a 650 that can't beat anything it's own size

Just kidding with ya!!

It gets.....One heck of a WHEELIEeeeee

As I said before the best would be to have one of each. I was driving back today from picking up my new 5x14 ATV trailer (and yes I can easily move it around with my 400EX) and saw an older Foreman or Rubicon on the side of the road for sale. If I hadn't just spend my pocket money on the trailer I would have stopped and checked it out as a work horse.

let me fix that, the biggest SPORT bike i have ever beat was a 400cc. Also i agree with 928GT about sport bikes pulling things, i have seen them pull some big stuff.

It depends on how u ride to I can bet a 500 ac and hang with a gizz 700 and ride right behind a raptor 700 just play around and see what works for you, me I get out of 1 as soon as the wheels start truning hold 2 for just a little bit then 3 for like 2 second hold 4 as long as I think I need to then 5 but I also mash the crap out of the throttle.

I start in second. There seems to be a bunch of opinions about how fast it should be, some guys beat a Warrior that will beat a 250ex?
