I just bought my wife a 2004 Suzuki Eiger 400 auto 4x4. Seems to be a good bike, needed brakes adjusted and a tire repaired (it will get new ones soon). Has anyone had any experience with these bikes.....good/bad? Question

I have the 2004 Suzuki Vinson. The Vinson and Eiger are the most solid machines Suzuki has built. You don't see them to much on the trails but everyone that has them loves them. I know I really like mine alot. Yea it might not have Diff Lock, Indepenent Suspension and all the other goodies but I really don't think they are necessary. I still have as much fun with mine. It always gets the job done for me.

IMO

My Eiger has over 3200 miles on it. I would buy another.
We used it at RRB last weekend to pull trailers, trees, rocks and most everything.

Tough machine.

Well we have put a few miles on the Eiger. It needs front wheel bearings but other that that it is a solid bike. My wife loves it so far. I am getting her some mud tires this spring and a winch. So far So good Very Happy

Never heard a bad thing about the Vinson or the Eiger. I am sure you will be happy. I wanted to get my wife a Vinson or 500 Foreman, but in the end we went with the Rhino. Congrats on the purchase. How bout some pics?

another question....the racks are pretty scratched up so I am going to paint them with the spray bed liner, but what brings back the shine on the fenders? I know I am not going to hide the scratches on the fenders but they are kinda dull looking all over. confused

The new King Quad 400 is the same exact machine as the Eiger.....all Suzuki did was change the plastic and name.

They also moved the shifter, put larger front brakes on it and a much larger, softer seat.

Its the same engine....but everything else is a total redesign.

Yes...on the KQ 400 they changed a few minor things but nothing big.

The shifter placement on her Eiger drives her nuts lol. I put a thumb saver on it for her, now when in reverse and turned steep the thumbsaver hits the shifter and causes it to take off backwards. She is aware of it now and watches for it....but the first few times was funny to watch roll

I have had a Eiger for 4 years, and i seriously ride mine. I don't think she will have any problems out of hers. A few problems i had with mine were i broke a front drive axle, i had 28 inch mudzillas on it though, i was riding a wheelie in reverse on the front tires when it broke. After i broke that side, about a month later i replaced the other because i broke it coming out of a mudhole the 28 in mudzillas were hard on the stock axles. After i replaced both sides, i haven't had any more problems. After market axles are a lot better than stock. I had to replace the front wheel bearings, but i ride in the creek and sand does heck of damage to bearings. I have over 3000 miles on mine and i would ride it to the moon if i didn't have to wear a space suit! Very dependable, i have drowned mine out 10 different time drained the boxes and it started right back up. Just can't kill the eiger. lol
