I've had my Prowler 650 H1 since the fall of 2005 - right when they came out. I use it pretty hard on our hunting lease in the Texas Hill Country - it has several thousand "hard" miles on it. Performance wise it's stock, except for a Benz Silent Rider and some 27" tires.
I just posted a thread on an overheating issue I've having and hoping to solve, so if someone has some tips, please let me know:
Some other observations issues/questions:
1. These things are LOUD; the Benz Silent Rider did little to lower the exhaust db except to reduce the high-end of the frequency range a few db. I have thought about replacing the "pivot seal" held in place with the two springs behind the stock muffler with a straight pipe. Any suggestions? I want it as QUIET as possible since I drive it around our hunting lease.
2. I've broken the upper eye-bolt mount off of my right rear shock twice - both times I was under the max rated bed capacity on rough terrain. I now carry a spare shock assembly with the spring already mounted for any quick field repairs, but have also limited cargo weights to 300 lbs max. I would love to find a heavier duty shock that isn't mucho $$$. Any suggestions?
3. Has anyone seen any 6 wheel conversions? I have thought about extending the frame to add a third pair of wheels in the back, matching the components and geometry of the rear wheels/suspension - thus increasing my load capacity and perhaps improving the ride over rough terrain.
PS: What the heck does that override button do next to the shifter? I have never had to use it.
