How fast have you had your ATV?

Recommended Posts

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:

BRAINS kick in !!!LOL at 55 I find it harder to heal from crashes :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.

i had a heavily built banshee topped out at 119 mph

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

20inch box tires, geared down on the rear sprocket and up on the front sprocket. a good friend of mine is a sheriff and clocked me on several runs, 119 was as fast as i could get it.

Going down or up 1 tooth on the front sprocket would be equivalent to going up or down 3 teeth on the rear.

I do hope you understand your motor would have to rev up to 13,100rpm to reach that high of speeds with that gearing ratio.................

yes IF i ran those ratios of course, i went down like 8 teeth on the rear and up 2 on the front. It's not like 2 strokes are hard to get more revs out of anyway...

the max rpm's for a bone stock banshee is 9000. But it all depends on your modofcations. Banshee's with the power valves like the 421 cheetah's will rev up to 18000 RPM"s

No. A 421 with Cheetah cylinders wont touch 14k let alone 18k... Either way, it's not possible.

since you do not seem to understand, iLL TAKE YOU TO SCHOOL...

i ran a 16 tooth front sprocket

i ran a 30 tooth rear sprocket

this gives you a 1.875 ratio with 20'' rear tires

the banshee's Primary Gear is 2.869 this is at 10,000 r.p.m's for a built banshee.

Yamaha banshee Gear ratios are as follows

1.st gear ratio is 2.461

2ed.gear ratio is 1.812

3erd. gear ratios is 1.500

4th. gear ratios is 1.250

5th. gear ratio is 1.045

6th. gear ratio is 0.875

so technically speaking it would run 126 mph, this minus the tire friction and wind speeds produced there for i ran 119 mph and not the full 126.

      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.

      Can somebody please tell me if 250x or 250ex nerf bars will fit on 96 300ex, and will 93-98 300ex nerf bars work on my 96 300ex? Thanks
