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 !!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

      Friend of mine picked up an LT80 that needs some work. The manufacture date is 11/1986
      The fuel and vacuum lines for the carb were all disconnected. I picked up a new card and was hoping someone on here has a photo or knows how the lines are hooked up
      Thanks in advance

      This 700 was run out of oil. Seized the con rod to the crank....yada yada. So, I rebuilt the engine and now it will start and run for about 5 seconds and die. I replaced the fuel pump with a cheapie from ebay and it didn't change. I replaced the O-rings on the injector and still didn't change. So, the tech at the Yamaha shop said that the most likely problem is the cheapo fuel pump. I got another more expensive one and it still didn't change things. I asked him where the power to the injector comes from and he said the CDI box. But since the thing does run a little, he  ruled that out. Any thoughts?????

      posted a while back - it was running at one point - I have all the plastic shroud off - it's down to frame and engine now
      -fuel pump: when line from petcock is attached, no fuel comes out other side to carb; the line to the carb is open (can blow through it); I thought when I cranked engine that the pump would spit out fuel on other side but it does not; I removed fuel pump and opened it up - diaphragm looks good - but internal areas had lotsa calcification build up - I cleaned this out and dried it good - the clear plastic pieces (?diaphragms) aren't broken - the spring w/ steel ball on end moves freely; am putting it back on tomorrow; but can anyone answer about the pump? isn't it supposed to pump fuel through it... to other side... to carb? puzzling
      -along with fuel pump: I replaced petcock 3 weeks ago (gas tank had rusty fuel in bottom - cleaned it out prior to new petcock); when I turn petcock arrow NOT to on or reserve, fuel comes out of line; when I turn it to on or reserve, fuel doesn't come out; puzzling
      -I don't know what's on back of fuel pump - it's a valve that has a hose coming out of it - looks like it goes to engine/carb - I haven't traced this out yet - what is it?
      -can squirt gas on air filter and engine will run for 2-3 seconds then stop - fuel in top of carb (under diaphragm) does same
      -it likely needs carb rebuild - will get to this - but something isn't allowing fuel to get from fuel pump to carb
      -I THINK it has a mikuni model x carb - diaphragm is ID 26mm  OD 68mm - hard to find inexpensive diaphragm, I guess because it's a model x
      -last thing - I replaced solenoid due to old one clicking; I HAVE to be charging the battery or it won't start/turn over - battery just goes dead; but if charging, it'll turn over nicely; i'm guessing it's a bad battery
      -any help appreciated - I've never owned an ATV before - inherited this beast from grandparent in-law

      Anyone ever try these? $500 for a OEM clutch seems high, But $120 seems a little cheap to me. Has anyone tried one with good luck?
