So.... Thats taking it easy on her? Go ahead and get cha another belt and an extended warranty, lol
Hey, there is nothing in the manual about taking it easy on the suspension! I actual am not getting on the motor at all…I have 7 hours on it and only hit 55 MPH twice fgor a few seconds each time. Mostly short 1/2 to 3/4 throttle bursts or some slow 1/4 to 1/2 throttle climbs. I do have an extended warranty though :crazy:

Haha…I was wondering if someone was going to notice that……well, I am waiting on my harness bar to arrive next week but I still wanted to go ride. So what you see in the pics is a piece of 2" PVC pipe that is strapped to the cage with 550 cord….It will do absoloutely nothing in a wreck, but I didn't want to only use the lap and crotch belts and have the shoulder harnesses flopping all over the place so I rigged this up for a one day only deal to get a ride in. :haha:

That 2nd picture you are certainly compressing the shocks. It looks squated down like a flat tracker.

I'm still breaking in the engine…..I only have 7.5 hours on it. It is sooo hard to not romp on it yet but I want to break it in right. I took it easy the first hour or so to break the belt in and now I am riding it harder but no full throttle runs and no long runs without varying the throttle and RPM's. Hopefully, my tie rods and gussets that I ordered from CT Racing show up soon, I would hate to break a tie rod or rip out an A arm before I get them swapped out.

Most everyone said to drive it like you stole it when I previously asked about break in period. To vary the throttle and not let rings get set at a particular RPM. So I have been beating the heck out of it from nearly day 1. Seems strong as heck, but maybe I screwed up. Time will tell.

if you look close at a couple of the pics in the first post you will see where I mounted it. Yes, it does get very dusty if you are following anyone......I used the quick release mount but it wobbles a bit and you can see it in the video. I am going to get a billet mount and mount it between the seats on the harness bar. That is pretty close to centerline of the vehicle so it should be just about right.
