Ok today i went to the dealer again, i said i aint going to buy a 06 anymore unless realy cheap, I was really impressed with the room AC made on the 500 this year, the exhuast pipe comes out the front, bigger and better hadle bars, lot more user friendly in the engine, alot more room by steering shaft and where normaly a batter would go its all emty, im just trying to figure out what the velcrow strap is for in that area. I like how you can put 4 spark plugs in and a spare belt all together under the hood. I noticed the skies are differnt. I also for got about the revers, I was amazed way to go AC. AC out did themselves agian. I know most of you are saying a 500, well thats all i need, i top out at about 80 mph on the trails and thats about it, and i dont do that often more like 70 mph. I am so happy, bad thing is it that is only came out in black but i got jordan and my dealer to make it look killer. oh yeah MERRY LATE CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR !!

A 500 is all anyone NEEDS. The good thing about the big engines is they run so easy going down the trail. Instead of screaming at you at 50mph they just ease along.

I had just as much fun on my old 88 cougar and 97 ZL440 as I do on my F7 and Cross 7. It is fun to yank the trigger every so often though and feel the RUSH of accelleration..

I with mine had reverse :(

Most early builds came with a clear windshield. Most late builds were black. Only early build engine size was 700cc...no 500.

Mirrors may be an issue....I intended to add the generic windshield mounted mirors, but the CF windshield flares out on the side(unlike the Sabercat), meaning the mirror would not be useful to the rider. I'm now looking for an alternative mirrror...

I dunno if you know this or not, but the windshiled monted mirrors actaully move around like a car mirror and such, just found that out at the end of last season

Look for the mirror with strap you put on your left wrist, a buddy has it and it works great! I will be looking for one myself.
