Okay, I'll try to keep this rant as short as possible. From the beginning, I have been losing miscellaneous bolts here and there. Both with and without loctite. I don't think it's too big of a deal, a little bullshit maybe, but non the less, nothing major. Well, Tuesday takes the cake. For starters, I lose my rear tail light(been having problems with those screws from day one!). I think to myself, well this sucks, but no big deal. A little later, I go over a jump and my seat goes flying off. Now I'm starting to get mad. And the piece de resistance, a little bit later, I go over another jump and into a 90 degree left hand turn. Well what do you know, as I lean into the turn (left), my seat and gas tank go right. Needless to say I take a very unexpected and unwanted trip (highside). I finally get the bike off of me and pick it up. What do I see, the bolt from the gas tank is gone! This is wonderful. Well, I clean the bike off and what esle do I notice (besides the front fender being nice and bent against the exaust and also melted), I see that I am missing a bolt from the PRO front assembly. Now that I look back, this thing is a piece of ****. I have about 18 hours on the bike, yet it seems that every bolt that does not have either a lock nut or cotter pin seems to come loose or fall out. I am really at my wits end with this bike and am waiting to speak with the manager from the place where I bought it. Don't get me wrong, the bike has a great motor, but the quality of the bike sucks. Thanks for letting me rant. Any ideas or any info on who at Polaris I could speak to would be much appreciated. I really want to like the Predator, but am finding it harder and harder each time I ride it because of the problems.
