With little experience I can't see putting her on a YFZ or Raptor. My vote would be for a new TRX250EX...They're bullet proof, and the Sportclutch is a nice feature. Plus they're reasonably priced...Nothing worse than watching $7,000 roll end over end down a dune.

My other half is about the same size. She rode her uncles polaris quad a couple times and decided she wanted her own. She got a TRX 400 EX. Once she figured out the clutch, she was good. I know it wasn't on your list, but I would recommend it for sure. The motor hasn't changed in forever, so it is more than proven.
