I know that I have read about some people crashing and not busting or cracking their plastic, but I think they ride mostly on sand. I am a moto-x rider and I have 3 other friends that have predators and all have broke their plastic including myself!! I think the plastic on the predator

Sorry, as I was saying I think the plastic on the predator SUCKS!!! I have one friend that did a roll over and it cracked the front fenders, another that endo and broke the right rear where it starts to go down to the heel guard, and another that was going across some whoops and his leg came down hard on the right fender and busted it right into. In my case, I was jumping a double and trying to learn a no footer and my let also fell on the fender and snaped it right into. The plastic is too hard and stiff, not like the plastic on the hondas or yamahas. Oh, and another friend was just practicing on the local mx track and his front fenders just cracked under the black cover just from jumping it. I cant wait till fulbore comes out with something, I will definetly will make the switch. This is the first complaint I have about the predator everything else seems to be doing ok for now.

That's a shame that you and your friends have broken plastic... I flipped my Predator in the sand and all it did was snap my whip flag. I also met a guy out there who rolled his down a hill and it bent his handlebars and damaged his throttle and brake levers, but no cracked plastic either.

Very odd...

I crashed mine in March. It hit the front bumper did a full roll onto the rear grab bar and back down. The front fender was touching the front tire and my friend pulled it back where it was supposed to be. It was 4 below that day and I didn't even get a white mark in the plastic! :)

I didn't see the bent front fender because I decided to lay on the ground for a little while. :)

Maybe the Black plastic is softer?

Hey guys, I just talked to fullbore and the guy said they will have plastic for the predator in about 2 weeks or by the end of the month. It will come in 7 different colors and will also replace the black side panels on the bike and will run around the $580 range. I can't wait to order mine!!:) It will be posted on the web sight when it is avaiable, the web sight is fullboreinnovations.com. Hope this is good news to some people that want some really good plastic.

I asked them about a month ago and they told me they were supposed to come out with some in about 2 weeks but that was already a month ago.

I too been on fullbore's ass trying to speed things up over there, only they told me 8 colors, blue, red, orange, grey, yellow, black, white, and clear for those who want to custome paint them. They told me they should start shipping the first week of july. He did mention that they streched the rear plactics as well as the front to eliminate the gap by the tank, he said it will be a smooth seam where they meet like the raptor has.
