2003 Polaris Predator 500 ATV Tested by Off-Road.com

You won’t see pictures of people doing on the Predator. The front end likes to on the ground.

Other You won’t them unless you ride the at night, but it has some nifty on the switches to tell you when you are in the run and when your lights are on The Maxxis Razr tires very well. Reviewer # 2 — Intermediate …

desert trail and dunes I liked: The first thing really stood out was the awesome and wide stance. It fires up, warming up in no time at all, and it’s all power from

The quad seemed to pull from the bottom all the way to the top, out nicely and easily staying up the piped and jetted raptors on side of me, and putting a major on the stock Suzuki LTZ400. I was impressed to be riding a stock with such awesome All I could think about was I wait to ride it again a few aftermarket mods. Then it was off the dry bed and into a desert-filled whoop

Once again the Predator was soaking them up with no and easily staying with the (equiped with expensive market A-arms, axles and The no-bump-steer engineering really to do its job, as I felt no bump at all. And once again the Suzuki seemed to fall in the power category in trying to with the larger displacement

After about an hour an a of up hills, down hills, whoops, off-cambers and every else the Nevada desert can at you, there were two Raptor owners and a new Suzuki wishing he would have off on his quad purchase. And one very 2-… rider (me) who had given the opprotunity to ride I feel is probably going to be the overall new sport quad of year.

Then it was off to Dumont Dunes, the Predator did equally as well, it wasn’t even fitted a set of paddle tires. It had no problems up Competition Hill, or anywhere I wanted it to go. There were people in disbelief at how quick the was without the paddles.

It was just great day riding the Predator! has done a great job. The would definately be my choice if I looking to buy a high performance

4 Things I didn’t like: Not so that I didn’t like things, but they were I might have for long reliability — I didn’t for the attachment of the upper A-arms at the joints. The arms go from a wishbone and tie together as one unit attaching the ball joint. It looked weak to me.

Another concearn was the lack of for the radiator and its overflow bottle. seemed to be exposed to flying from other quads. But with all that power wouldn’t expect you to be following.

The only other concern I had was molded belly skid and skid. Though Polaris is protection (as a lot of manufactuers offer or little at all) I don’t see why skid plates couldn’t the cheesie plastic ones. all they don’t seem to cut corners any where else.

Impression: I think it’s a quad. with very fun to manageable power. Reviewer # 3 — Intermediate Adult

Things I liked: The POWER! thing out of the crate has exceptional Definitely faster than a Raptor. The ride on the sand was The no-bump-steer works great, with the suspension.

It had a great of control, except the rear end to be a little light and would around a bit too easily in sharp I would think that adjustments to the suspension would with that. The controls are all in the places. The lighted controls also nice for night Things I didn’t like: the bike great power, one I did notice riding in the sand is on the low rpm side the bike seemed to much less torque the Raptor.

So when the RPM’s I found myself having to sooner. Overall Impression / I would say this bike has a lot the Raptor when comparing the stock to stock. We were to run the bikes side by side on uphill climbs in the sand. The left the Raptor from the and towards the end of the run the Predator was just away from the Raptor. The feel of the bike seemed more stable than the as well.

If I had the choice between a stock or stock Raptor, I would the Predator easily.

REVIEW SUMMARY The Polaris engineers created a very impressive for their entry into the performance sport ATV segment. We the Predator 500 is an excellent buy at $5,999 and is to race ready than of its competitors. It is too bad they could not added a reverse gear. time will tell how the Predator holds up.

We did not ride the Predator on the motocross yet this may be one of the best applications for the with its anti-dive and anti-squat
