Re: Raptor owners I need your info!!!!!
OK I have a Raptor and a Banshee among others , the Raptor handels way better than the Banshee, yes it feels tippie compaired to the widened Banshee so I widened my Raptor WOW what a differance
here is a pic of my Raptor
for EVERYONES info, there are alot of names on coolant, with alot of differant prices , but there is only ONE coolant plant IN THE WORLD so if you want to waist your money on the high dallor stuff GO FOR IT
now that my Raptor has been widened I love the way the stock (6 ply radials ) slide and I dont have a high speed wabble, and they hook up in any kind of terain, including sand
as far as gap between 1st. and 2nd. after I piped it (GYT-R muffler) modified the air box then jetted it (DYNOJET) I dont have a problem with the wide gear ratio , if you do decide to change gears (lots of people have , but DONT change the front)one tooth smaller in the front is the same as 4 bigger in the back , the reason that you dont want to change the front is you will make the chain ride on the guides REAL HARD and will wear them out FAST
I think if you are riding the wood alot I would only extend the swing arm no more than 2 inches , if you are in the sand ALOT you could get away with 6 inches, Myself I like the way I can pull the front off the ground anytime I want, I found it to come in handy when running through the trees and all of the sudden come up to a fallen tree that I have to jump or a hole that I hopp into
Ride hard, Lifes short
