Second look!
Last Friday night I went to Prescott Valley AZ to checkout the YXZ. I love it I just wish they would release the Blue and White before dune season. lol

Yesterday they had the yellow display YXZ at the Ride Now store 2 miles from my house. So I went down to give it another good once over. It looks even better on the second date.

The cockpit is very comfortable and roomy. It has all kinds of leg and shoulder room for the tall folks. (I’m 6’4) The 3 pedals have great spacing between each other and a really big dead footpad. The clutches pedal has maybe 3 inch’s of total travel.

Moving on the cage can be removed in 10 minutes tops. Remove the bolts in the six mounting areas and lift it off. You’ll be able to change cages on your lunch brake.

Sitting in this bad boy the visibility is amazing. Love it!

Without being able to test-drive it the only cons I have.
1.) 40 amp B.S.
2.) The 4/110 bolt pattern for the wheels.

Ride Now has paddle sets and 30 inch tall tires and wheels mounted and displayed on the showroom. That bolt pattern really looks tight on those big wheels???

Now back to waiting…

I saw one in person and was very impressed with the YXZ. I'm curious how the gearing will be affected by 30"+ tires.

Sonic, Thanks for making it up. I know it's been a couple days since we have checked in here, but it's nice to see we were one of the firsts to make it up here.
Sonic, I hope we were able to answer all your questions while you were here. Shoot us a PM with your email and we will let you know when we get our first stock unit in, word from the factory is it's set to ship today!!

Hollywood, I agree, although I bought my dirt bike from the Ina store in Feb. actually painless and a pretty good deal. But I was lucky, I can't even go in there to buy air filter oil without getting pissed at a kid telling me Maxima is no good. It's a joke. Cochise Motorsports claims to already have sold 2, paid in full. I'll be in San Diego right before Halloween, might get mine there.

Yeah a 4/110 has me a little uneasy especially if you want to run a taller tire. People are going to be driving these hard and that's a lot of leverage on a small area.

I took a second look today and what I noticed is the radiator is really cool, kind of a formula car shrouded design. Be sure to check it out.
