Well I went out for about 25 miles on local trails this weekend as is. I discovered the rear end fender leans down due to the U-shaped rack under the plastic rear rack is broken just off center to the left side, allowing everything to sag. I can physically lift everything up a good 2 inches. I was told this when I bought it that the rear was cracked and I could get a new one I just was focused on evaluating other features at the time when I was about to buy it. It is something I could leave forever and it would never matter until I had decent weight back there then the plastic fender would bear the weight and possibly cause it to become worse. I'll unbolt the plastic rack and see the full extent soon.
With regards to wobble, it may just be an atv that I am expecting to ride smooth and perfect on pavement. It doesn't appear to be speed sensitive as I did 40ish several times and it was fine for all but one where it jiggled a little then went away with slight weight shifting or throttle adjustment. I also pulled to 70 a few times and it was almost non existent, I think I may be ok. The biggest time and frequency/repeat ability is when I am on pavement and it engine brakes down from 25+ or braking down from speed, and it comes and goes quickly.
I may balance the tires as it can be a cheap easy improvement and see how that does, still need to get all 4 wheels off the ground, decided to ride instead of wrenching as my time is limited with kids.
I was also only to bring the front end up in low gear on grass. Should a 1000 be able to easily come up in high from 0 or low speed? I have some hopping/lurching during engagement and I had my belt slip once doing ~5k rpm in low and punching it (on dirt) yesterday where it banged on the rev limiter. I ordered a new belt but during riding only 3 mph and under including engagement I experience the not so smoothness. Not a major problem but could be better. I am adjusting to quads so trying to get a baseline for performance around, honestly underwhelmed by "1000 performance" I heard so much about when doing the 570/850/1000 shopping, when compared to people saying it's way more than you'll ever need. Trying to decipher if it's coming from modified 1000 cc sport bike experience or a slightly worn belt and/or how cvt's engage in general, or if everything is fine and it is what it is. Need to ride some other atv's to really gauge this but overall I am having a blast and thrilled I just went with the 1000 off the bat. I would have been disappointed with the raptor 700 given the places I have been going.
Picture for fun!
