Re: 50 inch dilemma
Todd, I bought my 50" in 08, it was the only model, But the reason I bought it was to ride the 50" trails in Utah (I live in CA.) that being said and many $$$$$ ago I just got back from Utah and 350 miles of trails this year.
As said, my ride is heavily mod'd, I will focus on the suspension. The best improvement has been my Walker-Evans shocks and springs. You won't even recognize your machine. I also have 2" spacers and a 2" lift, the spacers are removed for 50" trails.
The second big improvement will be tires. I personaly prefer Pitbull Rockers.
I'm awaiting on the front A-arm upgrade from American Star. As your front end wears this upgrade not only strengthens your ride but makes sense from the cost of OEM parts.
From a safety aspect, do not trust your roof holder (it is not a cage). The seat belts are inadaquate, I recommend 5 point harnesses. These Mods saved both myself and my wifes life. I am not understating this point.
Any other questions, fire away. I have 6500 miles of experience,
