Nov 2 ride

okay so last Saturday we went for a ride out from a little town in Ontario Canada. I was asked not mention the town because they don't want it ruined by hundreds of quads and s x s's. I understand why it's a beautiful area and don't want to see it shut down to others if we don't abuse it. Myself with my Wild Cat and two friends with RZR xp900's. Someone told me wild cats can't climb. I just like to say there full of it. I think my cat handle the tough climbs better than the rzr. where I would just crawl up they would have to take two attempts at it. But I give the rzr points for clearance both ground and width in the tight trails. I had a hard time because of my 1 foot length disadvantage and turning radius of a greyhound bus. would I trade it for a poo. No way I really like the ride of this machine. I had one problem on the ride. I bent the radius rods. Forgot they are in front. they don't like pushing trees over. Thats okay it's a cheap fix 18 bucks each and ordered protectors from utv.inc. I also have tires coming for it. I ordered GBC Spartacus radials in 27's that should help with clearance. Took us 4 hours to get to our destination and 2 to get back. We had to trim a few trees on the way there.

There okay with it. They like the look of it. Other than that the one guy calls in a grey hound bus because of the turning radius. They also say it has a great ride but bottom end snap is not there like the RZR. No matter what they think I like it and would never own another poo. I have had 5 poos since 2003. the sled lasting the longest. The rest not so long.

ya they do. There 235 bucks or so compared to 18 for the stock ones. I ordered tie rod a arm gaurds from UTV Inc. That should help. I don't want to put stronger radius rods on then something else going to break which cost more than the rod.
