Default Kasea 90 or predator 90

I dont know of any were else to ask this queation. Those of you that have bought polaris 90 would you buy again or would you buy a kasea 90. And those of you that have bought a kasea 90 would you buy again or would you buy a polaris. Please help me as i want to get my son a 90. He has a polaris 50 and it does not have enough power for the dunes and there are not any upgrades for it. Thank you all

Tough question. Very tough question.


Knowing what I know today and having more mini-quad brands NOW available in my area, I would definately "shop around much more" instead of buying a Pred-90 again. For our Pred-90, we've had to do way too many upgrades (safety, performance and extra maintenance things) to keep it going on our water / crud tails. Would I buy a Kasea 90? Not too sure. Haven't had the pure "hands on" opportinuty or long term track record experience to provide you unbiased feedback on this brand. But I can tell you that our Pred-90 has needed much more upgrades and maintenance activities then originally expected. No mini-quad brand "is perfect" but our Pred-90 has needed more upgrades / maintenance then expected.


For a list of upgrades and/or lessons learned on our Pred-90, surf the many pictures within:

Hope this helps...

without question if i had it to do again it would be a kasea the overall quality is far better the welds are far superior the kasea has the clevis a arms it has a foot brake a superior electrical system and a larger selection of aftermarket parts available
i've had the opertunity of seeing first hand the differences up close as they were pointed out by Jon AKA (Raptor720) over at the miniatv forum while i was having some work done on the pred 90
in his garage he had a kasea stripped to the frame and engine and i got a real good look at the welds and trust me they have far better quailty control
the stock P90 swing arm is weak and is known to break the stock kasea is made from boxed steel unlike the round tubing used on the P90

good luck with your decision Ed...


one more thing to add i could have picked up the kasea for $600 less than the P90

My kid has had a Kasea since 2001, it has been a great quad. He has rolled it at least 15 times and has never been let down. Put a Trinity pipe and cluch kit in it this year and it screams. I would definatly by again. Lots of after market parts avalable.

I would have to agree.... I too have owned our Kasea 90 since 2001 and its been a SUPER quad. Theres tons of aftermarket for them and they are just an overall great quad. It has won may races ... I also highly reccomend the Eton Viper. Both have suited us very well.

The frame on the pred is the only thing that is much different. But we havent broken ours yet. If your leaning toward mx i would look for the most durable framed bike. Other wise is probably just preference.

I'm digging up this 5 1/2 year old thread to get some updated information on the same subject. Only, I bet when this thread was started, brands like Apex, Cobra, DRR, and the like weren't so prevalent!

My daughter is 7 and rides a Roketa 90. It was fine until she started showing interest in racing and decided to start jumping it. The thing has pogo-sticks for shocks and has bounced her off once already. If she's gonna do this, I want to get her something suited for it.

I used to read "Blazer"s posts on how successful her daughter was on her Pred 90, and I can find deals on them locally. But I'm curious to hear everyone's opinion about how the little Pred compares to today's crop of 90cc class race quads...

i have had the off brands. i hate the kasea, roketa, sunl, all of them stink. i have a friend that has had several pred 90 2 strokes and loved them all. we have had great success with the yamaha moto 4 and the other yamaha minis. just my experience. we have not owned any of the high dollar apex cobra and such. just too much money for something that is outgrown in a few years, for me.

I agree about the Roketa being junk. But I got it for $100 and it's been a fine putt-putt bike. I also agree about the money for something that she's gonna outgrow. But My 7 year old is the oldest of 3, so I'm hoping the next two will get some use out of whatever I end up wit, so I can justify the price a bit more. Thanks for the reply.

Anyone else? Perhaps more from a racing perspective?
