I just picked up a super nice Recon for the wife 2 weeks ago. There are a few trails we ride that are pretty treacherous and the Recon being so narrow and low has a tough time on them.

I just put 2.5" spacers all around and now it looks like a racing quad and handles a lot better in the tricky stuff.

My OEM 24" Rancher tires and rims will go on tomorrow, so that will give her a solid 1" of lift as well.

I'll post up some pics when I get a chance.

Yeah, it's a fun little quad to scoot around on. Very light and nimble. The only drawback is that it beats you up a bit when going fast since it's so light - it doesn't soak up the bumps too well.

Is it just me, or is the Recon cold-blooded? It takes a solid 20 minutes for it to idle on its own without the choke on.
