Not offended, just saying it's a good thing to know the facts before passing full judgement. Anything can be made fast with enough cash, we all know that. But contrary to popular belief, it doesn't take a wad of cash to wake the Preddy up. I paid 2500.00 for mine as a 3 time ridden repo and put another 7-800.00 into it. One day I will go with a 13.0:1 558 kit, +1 valves, port work etc but for now it's fast enough to win some and lose some but also a great platform for my wife to learn on. I just used the Yamaha thing as a general referance was all. Everybody has a right to thier own opinion and that is what makes forums interesting, if everybody agreed with everything, what would be the point LOL?
Anyways, PolarisPreddy if you want to use the Preddy as a starting point for a decent drag bike LMK and I can point you in the right direction for everything on the Preddy. I think it's a good idea and hope you decide to do it.
