Extremely impressed with performance.
By Kaleb Judkins(Owner), Aug. 19, 2013
I love this machine! With my FMF exhaust, I tear up any part of sand mountain faster than most of the machines there. Sounds great, handles amazing, and can pop one sweet wheelie. I guarantee that you will be satisfied with the purchase of this machine! Read Full Review
