Hubby and I just bought a new Predator 3 weeks ago. I love to ride, but honestly, I am scared of this bike! I've taken it on the road for short little jaunts, but not out on the dunes yet. I know fear is a good thing, especially with the way I ride. Any tips to give on riding this bike?

Just take easy and learn about the predator. You will get use to it. When I first got my predator I went with a friend to the local dunes and tryed to keep up and crashed, Sand is somtimes tricky it will change on you from day to day. Were I ride here in St. Anthony Id. we have had two people killed in the last 45 days. I now know my what I can do and I fly. The predator is great and I know that with the type of suspension, I would have fliped any other type of atv when I crashed. Take your time. Have fun and good luck.

WHOA!, thats a little off subject, but i'll answer anyway. you should be able to find the sprocket in the order catalogs he has, but another way to search is for a 13 tooth sprocket for a 03 honda xr650 motorcycle. it is the same exact part. it will be more common this way and easier to find - james

rocky mountain atv has a 13 tooth for $7.99.

anyway just keep riding and you will get used to the pred, just show respect for the power and you'll be fine.

Yeah just take your time to get used to it. Another thing, you said you have taken it on the road for little jaunts, is this a paved road? If it is it will handle differently on a paved road, it will wheelie alot easier and any turning will be quick and persice since the rear wheels won't slide. I know when I ride mine up and down the street it feels like a different quad compared to riding on dirt.

Wow just noticed what an old thread...
