I just got my quad back from the Polaris Dealer. They replaced the ball joints and the brake seals under warranty. I noticed the left front wheel was off visibly to the outside. I talked to the mechanic and he stated that toe-in/toe-out is the only adjustable variable on the front end. Polaris recommends 0 to 1/16 inch toe-in for the Predator. If the castor and/or camber is off, something is bent. These parameters can also vary with suspension travel I've heard. Any suspension experts out there?
Alls I knwo is that for some reason I cant get my left front tire to come back in. It points outwards and pulls me kinda hard when riding on hard ****. I adjusted the tie rods according to how to guys at my dealership told me but it wont get back to normal. Any thoughts and this ****?
there are five preds around here that i ride with regularly and they all have that very same problem. but they all handle great and go straight even down the hardtop! one thing that confuses me is that even with equal tire pressure in the rear, my pred still pulls right when wheelying. not real bad just enough to annoy me. i can't ride a wheely very far cause ill go off the road!
I nailed a wall and must have tweeked the tie rod so had to adjust mine. I didn't see it at first after my wipeout inspection. About a week later in the garage, I realized the right side tire was pointed out more than the left. I adjusted it in to the specs above. I did try a toe in of 1/4" and thought the machine didn't like to turn then. Back to 0-1/16". It wasn't visable on the rod or anything but still did it.
Shakin, mate shift your bum to the opposite side of the seat to make your pred wheelie straight.
turns out, its gotta be the tire. i checked the pressure and it was dead even. then i switched the wheels around and it pulled the other way. problem solved, im getting new tires tomorrow! but thanks for the advice anyway
