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.

      Any ppl from Perth give advice on the best places to ride in WA.
      Beach with good fishing which allows camping would be awesome.

      Hello - I have just had delivered my 2004 registered King Quad 300.
      The gear change is pretty fierce.  Pretty hard to get into gear from neutral on the foot pedal and when I select reverse on the hand lever, it jumps into reverse with a hell of a kick.
      I am waiting for a service manual to arrive, but in the meantime, has anyone any suggestions please?
      Thank you.

      The saga of the fan continues.
      The Pin attempt in the fan shaft failed.  I then moved on to trying to weld the fan hub to the fan shaft.  I took it for a run the weld broke.  Now it was truly F'ed.  To recap the dealer price, they want $400 + CND for a replacement fan assembly.
      I searched all sorts of after market places and no one carried one.  Ebay had some used ones but they were $120 USD + Conversion rate for something as old as what I have.  I went to Amazon and eventually settled on this.
       
      amazon link
       
      What I found... and was amazed... was that the fan mounted to the Suzuki fan assembly bracket.  I was prepared to manufacture my own mount conversions...  It also came with "Harpoon mounts" (nylon zip tie like things that go straight through the rad.   Anyways it mounted to the original bracket. It fit perfectly.  Cut the electrical plug off replaced it with the Suzuki... all good.  Let the quad heat up, thermo coupler kicked in the fan circuit, polarity was right... all was good....  Fan is under the circuit fuse rating.  
       
      so I finally have a solid fan solution.  $34 CND vs $400+ CND
