    New Upstate NY'er Here

    Hello! Glad to see a good forum for the wildcat. I'll be picking up a new trail xt (my first sxs) this week and can't wait to get some riding in before the snow starts piling up. Looking forward to participating in the cause!

    Thanks,

    Brandon

    Welcome to the Wildcat Forums & Wildcat Family. Congratulations on your new toy. First mod you should look into is a harness bar and harnesses. Your neck will thank us later for this recommendation. They are more comfortable and safer than OEM belts. I too am from CNY and just sold my Trail. Upgrading to a Sport in Feb and getting from MLS Powersports in Ky...their prices and service cant be beat..I do all the mantenance..unless you own property the trails closed Sept 30th and now the hunters are on thsm with sledders soon to follow..maybe I will see you at Snirt in April

    Welcome 8716valver, congrats on the upcoming Trail. Yeah, definitely harnesses and a harness bar. As a first time SXS owner, take your time, and get to know your machine. Most newbies have roll overs doing less than 5 mph. Don't do donuts, as that is a sure way of introducing your side to the ground. Read up, ask questions.
