Hi guy',girls. Every since the first day that I got this bike I was hooked,even before I purchased the bike people have been telling me this or that,sure I'm new to this but I grew up riding motorcycles and go carts and stuff.I got out of the sport then everyone started getting these 4 wheelers so I thought that it would be fun,hell even exciting but now that's all changed.I've had fun going from site to site seeing what the latest gizmo's and gadgets that were out for the pred.,and all the things that you guy's were doing to your bikes to make them faster or look better.Well so far I've spent quite a bit of money and lost a lot of time waiting for things for my bike that I thought would enhance the performance or the asthetics of the bike.Hell it's gotten to the point that I don't know who or what to believe.I think that from now on I'll stick to just leaving well enough alone.The problems that esuperbikeshops having I just can only pray that nothing happens to my bike,but with everything in life thats worth having there are risks involved i'm jut unhappy with the bs that's flying around on these forums and on most of these web-sites so what's left for someone to do that wants to learn but don't have the knowledge to filter out the good from the bad.I love my bike and I enjoy these forums but enough is enough I will do it on my own so long it's been funn.

just what did you purchase that did not work out? Everything I got works great, except for a few jetting problems that are fixed now.

Everything you do in life is a learning experience and it takes patience. I totally relate that it gets frustrating. I get frustrated with carb issues too. I recently went back to the drop-in filter (from the clamp on one) because the thing wasn't running quite right and I didn't have the patience to fool with it. Figured I'd just wait until more people post their own jetting experiences and then go from there.

So much of this sport, especially related to these forums, is to visit often and build up a rapport with people and then everybody tries to help each other out. Sure there will always be those who will talk smack, but in time to learn who they are and can avoid them.

But again, I can totally relate to what you're saying about not being sure what to believe. To this day (on other forums) I still can't figure out if the Sportsman 600/700 get anywhere near the fuel economy of the Sportsman 500. So many people have differing opinions about it that it's literally a tossup.

As for eSuperBike, the Air Force kit is something I decided early on not to mess with. It didn't seem like it was worth $100 for what you got. But at the same time, there are those who are having luck with it, so I can't really slam it. I've heard many good things about Gary, so if you're having trouble, give him a call and calmly tell him what's up and I'm sure he'll try to help.

I would like to point this one thing out. WE ARE ALL DOING IT ON OUR OWN!!! these forums are to give you suggestions and ideas, everyone of these people live in different locations so you have to take anything anyone says and then relate where they are to you. Jetting is a pain in the yang yang but we all have to do it and their is no cut dry settings that work for everyone. All I can say is I love this place and everyone should keep postin what ya doing!!!! Its the only way for people to get a real world idea of what something is about!!! Thanks Rob

I agree 100%!!! I think we should all take a moment and think about what all of us had done and accomplished on this new quad...Jetting is a total beeitch!! Something that just takes practice learning and LOTS of time.... I think Ive learned more about the Predaotr than I have my 400ex in the last few months..lol. Your gonna here the Pros and the cons to EVERY quad out ther ,and of course what ever they buy they are going to say theres is the best...So, whether you mod it or keep it stock, as long as you are enjoying your ride......thats the important part right???? ;) Tina

Thanks guy's and also you too Tina. I was really feeling it last night and really put out all my frustrations on this site Sorry.I had awhile to sit and think about what it was that I wanted to do with this bike and all the negative stuff that's been said and said to myself that this bike surpassed all of my expectations so far and I've had a blast everytime that I've gotten on the thing so I felt that it was very unfair of me to post my frustrations here,as for the mods that didn't seem to work I have a 37,38,39 40 tooth sprocket sitting here but I believe that they will come in handy some day,just didn't do what I expected.I really appreciate the information that I've recieved from you guy's and girls it makes me feel that I'm not alone.Thanks

Trust me your not alone, all of us here have the same basic interests and that will keep this forum going for a long time to come. I don't pretend to know everything about anything but I'm more than willing to help out or share what I do know from experience and I think most people here feel the same way. When we find a set up that works it's good to share it, there will be however many different combinations that may lead to some confusion. You just need to try whatever makes sense to you or ask questions and look for a concensus, I have had good luck compiling peoples opinions on motor combinations that come to the same conclusions; they work. So be patient, Rome was not built in a day. When the R&D is done the products will hit the market and we will all benefit from them....

Hey bro dont feel bad. I've got a whole shitload of stuff I am not using because I was trying to experiment on my bike on my own. I know that i've probably "wasted" a lot more money than I should have but the only real way to improve anything is to keep trying different things and find what works best. This thing seems like its got lots of probs because of what all the people are saying about their experiences with the bike. I've got sprockets, filters, paddles, tires, a crap load of all kinds of jets, and every **** thing you can think of. I already decided that I am not gonna mess around with the quad for a while till everything gets figured out for me by other people:) Save myself the time and trouble. The only thing that pisses me off is that the minor things piss me off a lot. Things that coulda been taken care of by Polaris before it was released. When the majority of people are having problems over the same issue then that is something I would believe but a lot of the things people are bitching about are just things that have gotten messed up while they were trying something different with theirs. Ya sure we could have all gone out and gotten a craptor or some other quad with less "problems" but then again you would probably be pretty envious of my quad once **** gets all sorted out. So just hang in there and be glad you have a preddy.

I agree
I almost went with the Z400 but am soooo happy I get the Pred. I've had mine for about four months now and haven't done any mods yet. Almost bought an air filter but got discouraged after doing a lot of research. Reading about all the jetting problems stopped me in my tracks. I don't have that much time to ride so I don't want to spend it endlessly re-jetting.
