I'm just about to take delivery on my new 06 fusion 600 ho. Someone told me this morning that he was riding with a guy on a fusion over the weekend and he found the machine very tippy and kept turning it over on the drifts. Sounds like rider inexperience to me, but hey, I haven't driven one yet. I'm leaving an 03 trail touring (tired of rebuilding engines) so I expect a completely different ride and a huge performance increase....any comments on what I should expect?

my friend has one and i ride it 20 or 30 mile almost every weekend. it rides awesome! its kinda tall so it feels weird at first. but it soaks up the bumps so nice! it really rides great.
its an 06 900 fusion. the smaller fusions probably ride even better, justa little less power. go for it! i see 05 and 06 fusion 900 cheap all the time. some guys hate the vibration. i forget its even there after a few mins. if you get an 05 make sure its had all the dealer services and updates, they are important!

Thanks Joe, It's a 600HO Fusion, from what I've read, the vibration shouldn't be a problem. I'm looking forward to having some fun!! I'm getting the dealer to install a 1.5" track but the only problem is that it won't be here until late tomorrow, so I won't get it until some time on wednesday....it's going to be a long couple of days!!

Congrats on the new sled - I have the same one. I love how mine rides and handles - it took a little getting used to after leaving the XC, but the tippiness makes it handle way better if you are willing to throw your weight around a little. Soaks up bumps great and is great in the ditches and power lines. Rider select handlebars are great but need to be about an inch longer on each side. Skips water very well too. Bad things - running boards are too narrow. It's hard to turn at slow speeds (too much steering effort required). Took a lot of screwing around to get it jetted right (still working on it). Graphics are ugly (mine are peeled off now). You'll love it, just like anything else, it'll take time to dial in.
