AC/DC Convertor SUCKS! Leading to loss of lights and weak handwarmers. Update will cost you around $275 give or take not including installation labor.

Fusion 6 came out of factory with low end gurgle. Carb boots recall. Throttle re route inspection recall. Plastic chain case cover recall. Big one gas tank filler neck cracked.

Once you get them fixed pretty good sled but I certainly got my hands dirty making mine the way they should have been out of the factory.

Would be willing to bet the IQ 6 and Fuze 6 shared many of the same issues...if not all.

Pretty bombproof otherwise. Huge upgrade chassis wise to the edge as well. Sell your lemon and get one that doesn't suck from the get go.
