with the air box part, has it been really dusty lately, if it has i don't know it is would be a good idea. lean into corners and hit the throttle half way into the turn fr good acceleration, keep it on four wheel and you will have a great time.

Try taking the lid off the airbox and rejetting the carb. I'm sure you'll be able to get away with only changing the main jet. Try one or two sizes bigger and go from there. Jets are only a couple dollars each so this wouldn't be a costly thing to do. Also an aftermarket filter wouldn't be a bad investment either. If you are seriously thinking about racing MX then I would suggest a set of aftermarket shocks if they are in your budget you would be able to go faster with a good handling machine then one with more power.

It will probaly be a little to dusty at the track so ur best best is to keep the airbox. He said hes just going fot the weekend so no need for new shocks. One tip i can give is in the truns use ur front brake, if u already do then do it more cuz the Z's front tires suck! They slide out to much and don't forget to jump with ur atv.

The track has a complete sprinkler system to keep dust done...I use the front brakes a lot...on my old mojave for months I had no rear brake so all I used was the front...LOL...

Thats cool is has a sprinkler system. I'm not used to using my front brakes alot but i'm starting to but i don't like how the suspension sags when u stop fast. It makes me real uncomfortable when i turn like that and u can't do nose wheelies.

Huevos are the best quad videos made imo. On jumping, never let off the throttle. When you are coming up to the kicker, keep on it enough to keep the front end up in the air. Make sure you clear the jump if its a double. I'd reccomend asking somone that hits the jump what gear it is that he/she hits it in.

ya dude make sure you ride at a moderate speed, i remember my first time at the track with my 300ex, the track owner nearly griped me out, cuz i was only goin in 2-3rd gear most of the time, but by the 10th lap i was top endin it, next time i was almost clearin table tops, and small, and medium sized doubles, but make sure u get off the jumps , cuz dirtbikers CANNOT see you infront of them so get over em ASAP or its possible youl hbe goin home with dirtbike tire tracks on yer helmet, lol
