So Boondockers had a YXZ at St. Ann's this weekend. I was able to talk a bit with the guy driving it. They had there turboed RZR's there as well. First off they ride hard and fast, it is obvious their personal RZR's are running some high boost. When I asked him what he thought of the YXZ, his words "if you like to shift, and I mean shift a lot". He said with boost or more power should help. Some of his other comments were you can definitely manipulate the power with the gears, it keeps motoring pretty good, but even at 10k rpm it falls off quickly, you defiantely need 1st gear. He said he couldn't lead with it. I tried several times to get a which is better, or what would you prefer in this environment with no definitive answer. He kept saying it depends on whether you want to shift or not. Myself and two others in the conversation got the impression he didn't love it. Anyhow, I was kind of disappointed after talking with him until out behind Choke I lost a belt. I still think I would rather shift than deal with belt issues.
