I have logged many hours on this machine and can write a truthful review. In stock form the engine in this quad is lacking compared to other quads.
I'd spend the 800 bucks and get exhaust, a fuel controller, and intake. The difference is absolutely amazing.
If you can change the air intake tube to an LTR intake tube, it increases airflow substantially. You can also put KX450F Dirtbike cams in this quad with no modifications.
These simple steps will make your quad the leader of the 450 pack, HANDS DOWN. Any other stock bore, built quad is not a problem.
You can gear it up for more speed but this quad pulls like a tractor in every situation. If you can complain about the handling, you are delirious. Wherever you aim this quad will go.
Body roll is non-existent. The cockpit is smaller than average, cozy, but very nice and keeps you in place.
Stock suspension is quite good, not great. Adjust it to your liking and you will not have any problems. The overall fit and finish, quality, and reliability of this quad is far above the competition.
The one complaint, ONE COMPLAINT, I have is the stock seat is a little hard. I don't spend much time on it anyway.
I have never babied this ATV and have not had one problem. If I could rate it higher I would. This is one ATV you will not be disappointed with.
