Hi just purchased an 06 500 outlaw today and I have a few questions. Firstly the rear wheels have been turned round and it sits really wide just wondered if this is safe to keep them like that????

Also I seem to struggle to keep the thing goin in a straight line I just wondered if it's summat to do with rear wheels being so wide or weather the suspension isn't setup right. For example if I hit any kind of bump on the road it veers of slightly and also if I shut throttle off it will have a little wobble ( nose dive and veer left or right ) . I can control this no problem I just wanna know iif it's the quad or my inexperience on it ??

I've not even checked the rotation. Should the quad go in straight line when hands off handlebars ???

I know there are people here that know more about quads than I.
I just have to say I also had an '06 500 Outlaw and that thing was awesome!
No, it should run straight as a rail and strong.
I loved mine!

I'm gonna go over it again checking every nut and bolt and swap the wheels back round and see if that makes a difference. At the min if I was going along at 30mph and let go of bars it would veer left quite sharply. I hope I've not bought a lemon.

Tyres are non directional. I've flipped all wheels round now and it's stable. Straight as an arrow and very wide stance. If I put them correct way with valves facing out them the rear wheels sit right in and front is wider than rear. Don't look right ???
