Last weekend i bought my first sled, a 1996 yamaha v-max 600xt. It has 3300 miles on it and is in mint condition. It also has 96 studs. What do you all think? Is this a good overall sled? what are the pros and cons?
Some shocks are rechargable. In your case, you may have to buy them for the rear suspension. That sled shoudl be pretty peppy. From the one time i rode one i thought it was just fine. Sure it may not be a 800 twin, but you did get a good deal and yes, the rear suspensions sit lower on that year sled. looks good dude.
They are a very dependable sled. I had one when they first came out and never had a problem with it. They ride very well and handle well. I agree that they are gas hogs and you dont wanna get it stuck cause you wont get it out. HEAVY. But the rear suspension looks fine to me, they sit lower. Nice Sled Man.
