I'm thinking about buying another sled (used), and thought I'd ask for
opinions.... I've seen the thread about older indy's being the inexpensive
sled of choice and also have heard reassuring things about Phazer's. Looking
through the local classifieds there seems to be a number of 650 Wildcats for
sale (talking something like vintage '89 or '90 I think). Have people
found these to be enjoyable sleds??
Are these sleds trail-ridable or too heavy or under-suspended to enjoy bumpy
twisties? I seem to remember hearing that the suspension might have been a
little too light duty on early generation Wildcats (ie. parts break). Is this
true or are there fixes for the problems?
I generally do trail riding at moderate speeds (with some river/lake riding)
so I can't honestly say that having a 650 would make a big difference most of
the time. If the early wildcats are too cumbersome maybe I'd enjoy
something smaller more.... any opinions??
