    Yamaha used to make a timberwolf or bear tracker that was a 250cc I believe and it was four wheel drive. Although, a honda 300 would be a great starter bike and reliable as heck for the younger ones that will tend to test things out.

    polaris hawkeye 400 actually a 450 in the small chassis 06 i think is when they started making it in a small chassis this year it went back to full size, i think there was a polaris sawtooth but i cant remember if it was 4x4 or not i think it was a 300

    I think this is the best idea so far.  Keep in mind guys that kids need to start out on a smaller wheeler that is also light.  A Fourtrax 300 is too big for most kids to be able to control. 
     
     
    Then again, my idea of control is 100% total control of the ATV, not just partial control on smooth ground while not at full throttle.

    We own a 2001 Kawasaki Prairie 300 4x4
     
    It has almost the same engine as the old, reliable Bayou 300, which is a 282cc air and oil cooled engine. The Prairie has over 3000 miles of stone reliable service. It has a high and low range CVT transmission and full time 4wd [3wd] (without the variable differential lock of the newer Prairies and Brute Forces). It was/is considered a full size ATV. 
     
    The Suzuki Quadrunner F250 was a smaller (physically) ATV that a beginner might feel at home on. It was the one with dual range selectors on the tank: one for  "High," Low," and "Super Low" gearing choices, the other for "2wd," "4wd," and "Differential Lock" the latter only being available in "Super Low Range"
     
    The Kawasaki Bayou 220 and later Bayou 250 were 2wd ATVs
     
    As mentioned earlier, Yamaha made the Timberwolf which was a 250cc full time 4wd quad.
     
    Honda 300 4x4, and later the Rancher 350 4x4, both full time 4wd.

    yea the 220 and 250 bayous were only 2wd. i like the older suzukis 250s and the arctic cat 250s, both have the suzuki motorand irs. never dealt with the arctic cat but the little suzukis are pretty tough and can pull a serious tire and has diff lock so it will go many places the bigger bikes struggle

    i would say the arctic cat 250 with the low range selector and suzuki motor would be the best starter bike for a kid in the mud due to as they grow it will handle the larger tires with no mods because you can put 29.5 and in low it will sling them. and they are just as reliable and the famous honda 300.

    yamaha has a 250 4x4 i think its a bruin or a bear tracker or something... honda has the 300 4x4, suzuki and arctic (same thing during these years) had the 250/300 4x4. you can pick all of these up cheap, look in your local craigslist.

    now i know this might get beat down but its just a suggestion. back in the early mid 90s Polaris made a trail boss 250 4x4... now it was a 2 stroke and i know there not the best for mud but it is cvt and had the auto diff lock so basically turn hit the gas and the bike does the rest. but to be honest i think the cat 250 or 300 is the best choice by far

    Men Dont get lost, they just simply take unexplored routes in alternate directions.

    A AC 250/300cc quad is not a small quad it is a large as the 400/500cc quads.
     
    AC now has a 366 which is a small quad and just this year came out with a 450 in the same frame as the 366 so its a small powerfull quad.
     
    then the Polaris 400 but does not have low range and then the ole 300 Hondas, the 420 is also smaller them alot of other quads but maybe not any smaller then the eiger you bought.
