    That one's lighter for getting run over

    I didn't trade mine in, I was a bit smarter about this one and bought it used beleive it or not so a saved $2k. The only sad thing is the guy took off most of the 50th factory decals because he didn't like the looks of them and stuck on some dumb graphics kit. The thing has less than 10 hours on it and still has 4 months left on the factory 6 month warranty

    Bwap, let me know when you're going to have a bad judgement night and I'll bring it just for you

    You must be talking about the Rappy 700? You didn't lose track of anything, it's still in the stable and will stay in the stable

    1 ride and I found me new best friend I picked it up after work today and made a mad dash to the track to test it out, I forgot just how much the YFZ fit me for this type of riding.
    I think I was the first person to even get the thing up to temperature because after a few laps, it had that new bike smell hitting me in the face

    The previous owner was a bit careless (said it was his girlfriends) and didn't do much to it other than ride it so it does need some minor TLC (by my standards) to be almost perfect. Simple shit like replacing the OE aniversary decals, needs a headlight trim ring, a good cleaning, and a oil+filter change. That's tomorrows project

    Dude where have you been, I have a bike shed and a quad shed

    I don't use the trailer for storage, I don't want to load and unload crap every time I need to use it

    I can't offer any advice on the suzuki/kawi's because I don't like them and don't know anything about them

    The 660 is a solid quad from 02 and up. Most of the problems were in the first year 01 models so i'd stay away from that year unless it's had some major upgrades.
    The motor is ultra reliable and makes good power and torque.
    Poke around on Bluetraxx and you'll find the answers to just about anything
