hi guys... cool site!
i'm torn between a few bikes. everything i've read about the pred sure tilts me that way but the issue is that i'm fairly heavy (225+lbs) and ride very agressively. will the pred handle my wieght landing jumps and flying through whoops? so if anyone out there is riding a pred and is over the 200lbs mark please let me know how it handles for you..
thanks

The suspension on the predator is good. It will handle 225+ riders with ease. It does good in whoops and jumps. Especially if you spend a little extra money and have the front rezi's put on the shocks.

Hi all I can tell you is to get one and see for yourself.Nothing I can say will prepare you for the power,handling and sheer preformance of this bike.Stock this bike will surprise you and with a few bolt on mods it will amaze you.I'm about 265-270 and this thing will out run just about any bike out there even with the weight disadvantage.You set the suspention and you can take on the baddest of the bad.I would sudgest a 40 tooth rear it really wakes this beast up,add a slip-on and jet kit and hot d**n you're the man.

I weigh 260 pounds and the suspension is great overall, however, you will find that it will pack up quite often and you will probably end up tightening up the preload a lot like I did if you jump and what not. I would suggest revalving them. I decided to revalve mine because I did not like how there was no down travel left in the suspension. I love the ride now.

I am also around 230 lbs. I have ridden this bike for about 6 months now and I LOVE IT!! I have had no problems with it's performance. It can handle your size just fine. Buy one and ENJOY!!
