Good news: I got a new quad today

Bad news: I lied, there is none.

I got a 525.

I know this is a Raptor forum and I hope you guys will still let me post :(

The 525 hauls ass! I don't know how much ass it hauls compared to the 700 but damn it HAULS ASS and pulls hard all the way thru every gear.

The handling is A-W-E-S-O-M-E. It goes were I want it to. It's just awesome.

I got the 525 because it was a lot convenient for me because my dad's friend is good friends with Bob Paulson and we got a discount on it. They JUST got one in and we took it right off their hands.

Now go ahead, make fun of me and say I'll be repairing it in a month. It's cool, but remember, we're all quad riders! We's a family!

I got the raptor becuase I like to slide the backend around through turns. Also has more potential with larger motor. If I had not gotten a rappy, I would have gone with a KTM!

Congratulations :thumbsup: Lets us know everything about it both good and any bad if it ever comes up.

I want to find someone around me so I can take a ride on one, this summer I'll be in the market for an additional quad in my stable, it's looking like it's between the 525 or the new Kawasaki 450 but I want to ride the 525 and see what I think of the IRS.

You can get alot of info on the Outlaw at predatorowners.com . Sold my pred to buy my raptor, but I still check in at the predatorowners quite a bit. Its good group of people with alot of good info. I beleive all the Outlaws are having a problem with rocks getting caught between the rear wheels and rear hubs, actually wearing thru the rims and causing flats. Something to keep an eye on.

What do you want to know?

I took it to an MX track (Posted pictures) it was my first time ever at a track and it was rutted and muddy as hell! That was only the sand track! I went to the main track and it was even worse, it was a clay track and wow, that shit is heavy. I got clay ALL over so when i went back to the sand track I landed wrong on a tables top and took a tumble off the quad! That clay is slippery and was very hard to hold onto the bars, plus my inexperience and such... :thumbsup:

Have you got friends with rappys or 450's to ride with/against??
Are you mainly trail riding?
Dunes/sand?
Or you going to race?

1) Nope, wish I did. I've never ridden either. Only sat on em.
2) Yeah, I'm mainly a trail rider. But the track was a effing blast!
3) Never been to the dunes, I've ridden on beach type sand, I guess you could say. We plan on going to the dunes soon, though.
4) I'd like to try a race. But I've never been in an actual race.
