This is what I wanted to hear, usually people assume I am a kid for not using a manual so they say I should get a 250 cc or something, thats too smallI dont think so uhmmm added features nope. Read up alot on here lots of great people and lots of info too. 2009 is as good as the 2011. You might save some money on the 2009. Now if you ask 2009 and 2009 se their is a difference. Colour scheme and wave style brake rotor at the back! I think thats it!
Just between you and me if you do end up buying a raptor your probably going to grin from ear to ear when you first try it and then some. And manual on these are easy to learn if you drive a manual car or ever drove one your good to go. Just dont let go of the clutch and rev like crazy LOL. Just let it out slowly!
No warranty! F him go shop somewhere else and be sure to let him know: No warranty no sell! If its new why dosent he warranty it, stay away from this dealer! Bought my 2009se in september 2010 and it came with the warranty.This is what I wanted to hear, usually people assume I am a kid for not using a manual so they say I should get a 250 cc or something, thats too small
I never drove a manual but power wise I had a corvette and its a beast
the thing that worries me is flipping side ways but I will try to get used to a quad before really trying to go fast, is there any danger of me wrecking the gear box or clutch? the main yamaha dealer here sells it with no warranty what se ever
you mean sweat a lot, it gets up to 50C, I will get a helmet and the glasses thing but I rather them be the shady typeThe Raptor is pretty rock solid so I would not worry to much. It still sucks no warrantie but you should be fine. I would get a good helmet at the VERY LEAST. I know its hot as hell over there but its better to sweat alittle with a helmet instead breaking your head open. I would go with the higher end helmets they tend to fit/protect better and have more vent to keep you cooler. I like TLD (Troy Lee Desings)helmet myself but I know Klim make a model just for hot riding. http://www.klimusa.com/product/F4-Helmet,296,93.htm
