Talked to my dealer yesterday and I'm first in line. Bought both my raptors from him and I'd love to get a sxs too

I'm just hoping that it's everything we're all speculating. I'd love it to be a 55" for the flexibility to fit on the 50" state trails. I've never had bad luck with a yamaha and that is my plan to keep them in the stable

Welcome to the forum! And congratulations on making it first on the list! You will never beat the reliability of a Yamaha! Being a Arctic Cat, Yamaha, And Can-Am dealer the Yamaha's have always sold them selves on reliability and it sounds like this machine will be right on par with the rest! I know lots of R&D have been done!

I'm well aware of the Yamaha reliability. My xc racing quad 07 raptor 700 did 39 races over the years completely stock engine. Tore into it last winter and rebuilt and upgraded. Now we're at 71hp at the wheels

We know an older couple that has a cabin in Gordon, WI, so we ride in Douglas, Bayfield, Washburn and Sawyer counties up north. We haul our machine up there with a toy hauler and stay on their property, along with a group of people. We're the only ones with a SXS, but others are talking about it. I would never go back to a ATV after riding my SXS. Way to much fun!! I'll have to check out that website for sure.

that's all beautiful country up there. see many 50" restricted areas in that area??
When I first started riding up there, they had a few, but they have all come down now. We ran into one a couple months ago when we went on an overnighter, but you couldn't have gotten through there with anything big. It was like a cow path through there, almost like a wooded tunnel. Very cool, but tight running. They still need to widen a lot of the trails to make it safe for two big SXS to meet on the trail. I like my 50" Wildcat Trail I have, but if Yamaha comes out with a 50" that can convince me to trade, I will. It would have to be a big upgrade, because I am neck deep in this one with upgrades and would take a big hit trading. LOL!! It's all paid for, but don't want to lose that much on a trade right now. Do you see a lot of 50" restricted trails down there?

To be honest I don't do any trail riding around here. There's a railroad bed that's open to most anything but it's not for me. 30mph limit and flat

The trails I like best are hilly, twisty, with ruts and small rocks and narrower, that even a 60" would have trouble getting through. Don't get me wrong, I like to open it up on the fire roads too, but straight and flat gets old after awhile. That's why I find my Wildcat Trail is perfect for my kind of riding. If Yamaha comes out with a nice 50" model, I think there is a good market for them around here. We can't all live in the dunes. LOL!!

Definitely, dunes are kick ass but woods is much more fun.

The rzr 900xc dimensions fit a little closer being a 55" machine and I don't know if I can bring myself to own a polard-ass.
That's why I'm praying for a 55" yamaha
