    XP 1000 - 2 seats or 4?

    I have decided to buy an XP 1000. Now I have to decide between 2 seats or 4. 99% of the time I won't use the rear seats. But I have heard the 4 seater is a far better ride. I like that if its true. I ride desert and mountain trails. Places like Ocotillo. I am a little worried about the length...

    Hard to start !

    Valves arent the problem..... More than likely the fuel issue from sitting.... Mine does it too sometimes.... An electric fuel pump will fix that if it bugs you. Low voltage from the battery can also be a problem if you have an aftermarket CDI.... For some reason they are touchy with low...

    Rear Wheel Wobble

    I need a 2nd opinion.... I am sure once I tear it apart I will figure it out but it is on my mind... I jacked up the rear end and the drivers side rear wheel has a bad wobble. I removed the tire and the axle nut is tight as hell. The silver hub (not sure what to call it) that the tire...
