    There are already sport 4x4's on the market now and in the past. The 3 models most worth mentioning are:

    Yamaha Wolverine (350 and 450) 
    Polaris Scrambler (400 and 500)
    Can Am Renegade

    All are good machines and the Renagade with the 800R engine can easily keep up or beat many full sport, manual clutched atv's on the market today.

    The moment you add the 4wd drive gear (front differential, transfer case, front driveshaft) and then build the chassis strong enough to hold it together, then it would be heavy. About as light as it can be made and still be durable (and cost effective) is the Polaris Scrambler. The manufacturers just cannot go much lighter than that.

    Would it be real fun if it was built? Most definately. I totally agree with you. I remember years ago thinking the same thing. Having something like a 4x4 400ex or Warrior. But in order to build something like that you will have to start looking into high strength steels and special alloys. This is to keep the extreme light weight that we want, yet still have it strong and durable. This will drive the price of the machine extremely high. Prices that the general public are not willing to spend. It just isn't profit effective for any manufacturer to produce.

    Well if you're still planning to keep it 2wd you COULD do exactly what you're saying. A larger sprocket out back, smaller on the engine gears it lower (like my stunt bikes) and of course you can put Laws on it out back. Do some aftermarket goodies for performance and it would be atleast a fun machine. have fun keeping the front end down though lol.
