When I had my 2005 King Quad 700, I had it up to 72 mph on a snow covered highway and a frozen lake...

My current 2004 Grizzly I had up to 66 MPH. :cute:

Sounds like it may be the age factor setting in on shutting them down early. I'm sure when I was 20 I would have kept it pinned. :)

even at the age of 28 i still have to think more about what i go up. if i get hurt and cant work then i dont have money to pay the bills or go play. but i still find myself going up hills that i shouldnt .

my kfx 700 go it up to 78mph according to the time slip I got the one time I took it drag racing. my kfx450r going up pikes peak I was averaging 65mph. the 450 would have been faster if I was lighter and wasn't going up hill. :laugh:

I know what that's like. Third time I had mine out I went with my son and my son in law on some dunes east of town. Flipped the Cat coming off a dune and broke a rib. Took 3 months to heal.

To answer the question, I got the Cat 500 up to 62 once.

'06 Can-am 800 Outlander, somewhere north of La Paz Mexico, 92 MPH.

Very cool how did you get past the ecu? Do you have a controler?

Hey Swampcat, It was Mike Penlands' quad, and he knows the ins and outs of getting speed out of a Can-am. His son Hoyt, (who passed away in 09') had it up to 95 before the race, when they were testing it. Epic racing also had an Outlander that was very modded, and it was supposed to be able to top 110. It had the front diff taken out, some serious long travel shocks, and more than a little "extras".

I am hoping we have good luck this coming November, when we try it again. I am hoping that maybe for 2013 we can run Baja in a Commander. We both would like to give it a try.

I got my old prairie 650 up to 56 mph I have to backout of the throttle at that point. It starts getting unstable and starts wondering due to the tires I have. I was told it will reach 70 mph by the shop owner where I bought it. I don't have the nerve to try.

Start with the Mavrick and you have a good base with 110hp stock. Good luck and be sure to post pics if you do.

Calling you out on this... What tires, gearing, and RPM were you pulling to make this happen?

      Got a question and hopefully find some help. I have a 95 Timberwolf 250 that I picked up and it didnt want to idle. I have rebuild the carb with new kit replacing all the jets and float seat. Blew out the ports with the air compressor after I soaked the carb and cleaned the ports with a fine piece of wire and it still wont idle on its own. Has new air filter. I had it running and sprayed around the carb and carb joint and didnt get a rapid acceleration as if I had a leak. I read somewhere how the standard jets are like a number #40 and people have replaced them with a bigger jet. I called the local dealer here and they said they cant order jets and was wondering if this could be the problem and if so where can you order them at. Any info/help is highly appreciated. Sorry for being so long, just want to get as much info out as I can.

      Pull in clutch lever shift into gear and nothing happens ... But When I pull in the clutch lever I hear a clicking sound ... never heard this before ...

      Hey guys, Thanks for looking at my post. I haven't had a lot of experience with problems like this before, so I'm a little bit at a loss. The Quad was really hard to shift, (the dirty carb leaking gas making it idle high didn't help either). The only Idea I have would be is that the torsion spring is worn out, and that there is a normal parameter for how much it should move when those two arms of the shift shaft assembly spread apart.  That's my thought. Maybe someone who has more knowledge then me can let me know if i'm on the right track 😀

      I have a 1998 yamaha grizzly 600 4x4 I have put back to life but as soon as I had all the bugs out it blew the special "L" plug out. What causes this? Is there something special I have to do to replace this?

      If you are looking for a used ATV for sale, where do you look? I know ebay and craigslist have used ATVs for sales and then sometimes you find local trade publications where they list used ATVs. I was looking online and decided to list out some websites that sell used ATVs. If you know of any additional websites or sources to look for or buy used ATVs, please post as a comment in this topic.
      eBay Motors  - usually has a good selection of four wheelers, ATVs, and Side by Sides and offer seller protections
      Craigslist - usually has more local ATVs, but be careful as there are no seller protections
      ATV Trader - has over 130k ATVs listed by private sellers
      ATVSoup.com - new and used ATVs for sale
      WantAdDigest - Shows local listings of ATVs for sale
      ATV.com - List new and used ATVs for sale
      When buying a used ATV, make sure you do your research and find out the book value of the ATV, look over the condition of the ATV, and as for verification of ownership. Be careful who you buy from and get the ATV checked out by a professional dealer or repair shop if you are baying a high price. 
      Watch our for VIN numbers that are scraped off, this is usually a sign that the ATV was stolen.

      I got an ATV from a guy that ran out of time rebuilding an eiger 400. He put a nerma Piston and rings in. I finished it up and it smoked like a train. I took the head off and honed the walls and it looked like the rings where on the walls, but it smokes just as much. I'm confused what's wrong with this thing.
