Power
Great sometimes a little much but gets up about anything and will push hard in bad conditions
Suspension
strong and reliable for sharp turns and hard landings
Brakes
great soft in front but hard in back and depends how you set them but they work well.
Comments
great and not too heavy compared to other bikes but could use a little work on turns but runs great, kicks hard and is one of the funnest bikes you could ride with so much power but be carefull with this power on wet grass

Power
insane power. almost too much power for this bike, hits hard mid and top will through you off.
Suspension
ok for its age
Brakes
good
Comments
this is a great bike, because of reliability and power. its really too bad Bombardier dont make these no more. buy one if you find one. This will beat an 02 KX 500 in everything but handeling.

Power
Has almost no bottom end , then hits soft in mid range then hits hard on top.Needs more power.
Suspension
Front forks are too soft, then get too stiff when the radiator heats them up. Back shock is too soft.
Brakes
Not too good. Back brake is useless and front brake is too weak, and fades the more you ride it. If it gets wet, forget it.
Comments
Wouldn't recommend, hard to find parts for and not an impressive bike compared to Japanese bikes.

This is the best bike on the planet. mine never ran but it rolls down hills very good. It hits about 80 in the back of my truck.
Suspension

Brakes
