700 raptor owners

Recommended Posts

I have a 04 660 raptor. I love the machine in fields, gravel roads, and jumps. I do not like it in the woods because it does not know low rpm riding. I have to ride the clutch a ton in the woods (especially on slow riding trails)

Does the 700 fuel ejection run better in low rpm in the woods?????

i do not own a 700 but i had a 03 660 and loved it i had the same problem with mine i went up one tooth on my front sprocket witch let me use 1st a lot more on tight trails

with stock gearing 1st was useless but on tight trails 2nd was lugging to much anyway it was a cheap fix for my riding style and if 1 tooth in the front doesnt work for you just go down 1or2 in the back as for clutching a lot learn to love that clutch it will make you faster well it did for me i had a banshee befor my raptor and had to use that cluth all the time and i found riding my raptor or any other quad i ride use that clutch like you are riding a 2stoke just always helps !!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is nice to know. I was kinda thinking I might like a Raptor 660.

That's funny you should say that, IMO a Raptor is one of the easiest bikes to ride at low rpm. You wont find a sport bike with more torque. If you think you have to clutch alot with a Raptor, try riding a 450, I can't lug my LTR at all. I even have to clutch more on my TRX500R than a Raptor, and a CR500 motor has tons of torque. If you don't like using a clutch maybe you would like a KFX 700 better. Or like Havok said, adjust your gearing. A tooth up will make 1st gear more usable, or a tooth down will let you use 2nd gear sooner, but 1st would probably be useless unless you want to pull some stumps. Front sprocket adjustments make a big difference, rear sprocket changes let you fine tune things.

      I need some advice on my 700 kingquad. I recently went out into some deep water (not sure if this is the issue or not) I did not submerge past the seat all the way, however I did wheelie out of it with the back end submerged for 5 seconds. I realized after I did this that you could hear the engine going up in rpm's but there was no power to the wheels after a point. You could only hear the whailing of the engine. Could someone lead me in the right direction... basic knowledge would be to check air filter, belt housing for water, spark plug. Otherwise I am at a loss. Thanks in advance!

      If we had a dollar for every time the question “Which is really faster, the 700 or the 450?” shows up in our inbox, mailbox, or voicemail, we’d be putting this magazine together from a bungalow on a barely inhabited tropical isle named Quadhama.

      I'm going to check the valve clearance on my 2011 Grizz 700 for the first time and I'm also wanting to check the timing, but I'm not sure how to do it. What tool (light gun?) do I need for this job and how is it done?

      Feul pump went out. Replaced. At times quad cuts out like its not getting gas. Saw article on new pump needs to be calibrated. Told how to go into a service mode. Does not tell how to calibrate after going into mode. Can anyone shed light on this procedure.
