I'm thinking of selling the iqr and looking for a 2011+ SBA, any must do mods/changes to do, or things to look for on a used one.
Is the cobra track that bad?

IMO the cobra does pretty good in not too deep powder for being a trail track.

2", it's the one thing that always held me back. The Cobra track is an amazing track though. Made me a better rider.

I have both IQR and 11 assault, each does things better than the other but I'll bet if you do switch you'll miss your R!

Thanks for the input. Ya i might miss the R, but I'm getting tired of the fuel range/economy of it, and a long track would be nice. Anyway, just getting some info for the fall time.
