well if your on a flat dirt road...the paddles will shake you up because there ment to dig into sand and if the ground is hard you will just virbate to hell as you get faster.

I think it is something wrong with your guad because mine is all stock and i do most of my riding on the road and i am topped out in fifth gear all the time and i have never noticed any shaking or anything. You may have a bent rim or axle. I bent the axle on my old raptor and it would shake you to death in 5th gear.

Well I know I said shaking but it is more like "sqirrerly" and the bars move a little. it doesnt help much that the guy I bought it from f-ing rolled the damn thing and didnt tell us!!!!!!!!so it might need a new axle ? I might as well buy one ehh???

If you don't have paddles then mabey you should change your avatar
It leads people to believe that you have paddles since it clearly states that you do.


Well anyways, a steering stablizer will keep you bars from wanting to turn every time you hit a rock or bump.

if your front alignment is off, that can cause this problem too....But I would check for bent rims or a bent axle first...If those are fine, then re-align it....

Yes I know that angles dont wobble. But if your front tires are toed in too much they will want to both turn in at the same time...and this makes the quad shake back and forth.....It also wears out your front tires in a hurry.

That happened with mine and the stock rear tires were out of balance. Try running it jacked up and see if it's the rear that's giving you the trouble.

I just bought new razrs for it ,so we will see if that works. we already checked the toe, and axle and they are fine but the axle has a bend smaller than a milimeter would that effect it??In the near future I am going to buy an axle so im not to worried. B)
