Hi all! Been on here for a while learning about these sweet machines. Just bought an 09 SE last week with 114 miles. Thanks for all the great threads with tons of info, they came in very handy when looking for an atv. Here is a couple pics of some of my toys.

Thanks guys. I'm glad i found this site. Everyone on here has very nice rides and seems very knowledgeable about these things. They are a little different than the cars i worked on, so i'm sure i will have lots of questions as things happen. So far i got a ton of things i wanna do to it, but first off it is just ride! Had a KFX450R and 500 Predator before getting the ol' brute, but neither compares to the Raptor!

I found a pretty good deal on an 09 and a 10 hold-over in Wi. and didn"t know which to get. I like the color of the 09's and the decals of the 10's. Found a great deal within a couple hours drive here in MN, so I took it. I have had quads before, but this is the biggest! Just wanna ride it for a little while. I know what you mean, I had holeshots on my other two rides and really miss them! Gotta sell my car before I start modding this out (not enough room and money). I am about 30 min west of Mankato.

Has anyone else had issues with the decals peeling? I know its an 09 but the thing is like new (100 mi.). No scratches cracks or signs of abuse, but at least half of the decals are peeling bad! Do I need to pull these off and replace them??? What has everyone done?

So i was cleaning up the raptor the other day, and the decals/stickers came right off! Oh well, i was going to have to do that sooner or later to apply a clear protective film to the rear fenders. Just picked up this GYTR front bumper from TopSpeed and needed some input. Should I go with black nerfs and rear grab bar pc'n front bumper, or leave the bumper and go aluminum finnish on the other parts?
I'm thinking of going with these nerfs.

And this rear bar.
