How fast have you had your ATV?

Recommended Posts

Thats why I like the 700, they are fat pigs. They are really stable at 75mph.

I've cracked 73 by GPS with the Tcat on the hardtop a couple times. It'll do more, but I wont...

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 7 atvs off CL recently for a good price.  one of which is a yamaha warrior.  anyone know where the vin is printed on this bike?  Haha good place to start as I do not know year or size yet.  The former owner says needs exhaust ans and clutch work.  he said it ran fine until the clutch cable broke and then I couldn't get the new cable adjusted right and it would grind gears.  things I see:  clutch cable locked up again, no brakes, carb leaking (green with algae around the bowl and has gelled gas stalagtights on it), aftermarket exhaust melted the airbox so I need something different and a new air box.  I would like the use the current exhaust if I can but I have a feeling its a redneck fix as it looks like there is an ace bandage holding it to the exhaust pipe (its an aftermarket slip-on exhaust), so I'm not sure about that- lets get the bike running first.  also, battery (looks brand new, what a shame) is dead, 0 volts.  Otherwise, bike looks to have not been wrecked, and plastics are ok (it sat outside under a 'tarp' for 3+ years since it was run last).  any tips and advise on where to start first would be awesome as this is my first clutched bike (manual).
      the clutch is my main concern- I've never rode a clutched bike so I dont even know what its supposed to feel like.  lol I'm spoiled on my automatic polaris

      i have a 1993 timberwolf yamaha and the compression is good and lights work but for some reason the electricity is not going to the spark plug(s)! i got a friend to check it out and they said its no use but im not giving up! please help with this!

      I have a 1988 300 Honda FourTrax, All wheel drive.
      My brother and I were fixing up this quad. We put a brand new battery and fuses in and it was running fine until we put the quad into reverse. As soon as it was put into reverse all of the electrical cut out and power wasn't making it to the head unit anymore and both of the brand new fuses popped. We figured there might have been a short from the starter or solenoids, but they are all working properly. At this point we don't know where to start looking for where the short could be. I'm just wondering if anybody has had the same issue or knows of similar issues that could cause these electrical shorts?

      Not satisfied with the commercially available versions, Jonathan recently built an ATV spring compressor.
      In this video, he demonstrates using it to remove & re-install the spring on an ATV coil-over shock absorber.
      Mistake in video - the coil-over shock is not quite a McPherson strut.
      If you are inspired to build your own spring compressor, feel welcome to use any ideas from this video.
      Thanks for watching! Resurgence Small Engine Inc.
