Seeing as the Sabercat is being built on the firecat chassis will the same rider input be needed for riding this sled or has some design or suspension changes gone into it to make it turn without all the rider input that is needed on the Firecat?

Thanks
Bob

The shocks are different, it has something similar to the smart ride suspension. I doubt it will handle much different in the corners then the Firecat. Just my 2 cents...... and the Sabercat 500 has no power valves. Approx. 80hp? :angry: :wacko:

yes it seems the S/C will be close to the F's in handling ride, except better at low speed. The shock is position sensitive, which has a bypass in the first part of the stroke..So it was stated imperitive to make sure ride height is up there, not too much sag.

2 things...1 get without rev..then add...or get the LX and take elect. start off..I would leave it on of course..The $$$ will be cheaper to just get it with both from the factory.

After driving the sabercat ext this week, it does have a very soft suspension. I had a ZL before and now I have a Firecat. I would never go back to that type of sled (waybe in my older years). If you like the ZL you will like the Sabercat, but I think you will have to lean a little more than a ZL. I think the Sabercat will be a great sled, I just don't think ALL of the former ZL drivers will like them.
Also my dealer said that the electric start works about 25% of the time. They fix them all the time.
