I'm just curious how it will compare to my predator for trail riding. I know it will eat up the pred
on the track and dunes. The pred is 47" and the LTR is 49" so its only 2" more than what I'm used
it. For narrow trails I just grab a bike. I like ATV's in sand, ash, silt, and other soft stuff where
the bike is just too much work for an old lazy guy like me.
I've done a couple rides near Mt. Lassen from about 4,000 feet to 8,150 feet and the pred was OK,
but a lot of other quads had problems with the elevation, that's why I want EFI, one weekend
at the dunes, next in the high mountains.
i just came back from riding on some best trails that i have ever been on.the ltr corners like it is on rails.what a sweet ride.i let my buddies ride the bike and they were blown away by the bike.they ride a 400ex and 660 rapter and the suzuki 400.the only problem i had was the clearance was a bit small. i need 20's on the back.i hit a rock on the chain guard and bent it up.bolts were at a 45 degree angle.just came back from dealer and it is 40 bucks for new one and 5 bucks a bolt.so i am looking for a skid plate for my swingarm. has anyone bought one and from who? do they fit nice? how much?
Just did an Enduro Race and it was all single track trails and the LTR dominated. The only time I had to slow down on the race course was when we switched trails and I had to go thru rail road ties spaced at50" wide. Other than that, it is the best trail bike I have ridden.
I mostly do trail riding with my R450, and I'd say it does pretty well. It is a little tight in the heavily wooded trails but it makes it through without too many problems. My only suggestion is get some 20" rear tires... can't wait for mine to get here this week.
