Does anyone know what a stock 700xx will top out at... in "mph"
Does not matter what the run up distance is... 2 miles, 3 miles or whatever.

In another forum, I posted that I hit a speed bump at about 70mph and went flying through the air screaming like a little girl. I was exaggerating when I posted 70mph... But one person took exception to the "70mph" thing and said... "highly unlikely". Never mind that he just didn't get that I was exaggerating... perhaps I should have said "700mph"... then he may have gotten it. I only meant that I was flying wide open in 5th gear. But, to be basically called a liar... "highly unlikely" really pissed me off since he didn't know what I ride.

I really need to know if a stock 700xx will get up to 70mph... I think it will and want to stuff his words down his throat... or up his axx! :birds:

Will it? or Won't it?

Thank you... consider him stuffed. If you can get 68mph on dirt with a 13t, then I should get 70+ on asphalt with a stock 14t.

BTW, he rides a yfz450r... I think that because HE can't get 70mph, he also assumes that no one else can.

You'll do that before you hit 5th. Check out the first vid Gary posted.

74 mph in the dark. SCAREY but wicked
I have balls of steel. I also had my motorcycle gear on - full face helmet, jacket, gloves, jeans, boots.

With the mods I have now, I can expect to top out around 92mph.

I hit 78 with a 13 tooth on black top. thats what the gps said. it took way less than a 1/4 mile. I have a k&n,fmf tuner,fmf powerbomb and fmf factory4.1 I kind of wonder what it will do with the 14t gear or a 15

Should have just took just over an 1/8 mile. Stock 700 Raptors usually top out in the mid 70s(unless you bypass the 5th gear timing retard) and usually its there well within 1000 feet. For an example I usually click into 5th just before the 1/8 mile mark at the drag strip and 5th is only just a tad taller than 4th.

I did 5th almost full throttle on a gravel track with bad fishtailing on last round of XC . No wonder ,I was worried. I also had no steering dampner and let the tires down to 3 psi.

Thanks everyone. The idiot has been properly spanked. But not by me... other members of the forum posted and spanked him but good before I even got back to post my reply. They told him not to talk out of his axx when he clearly didn't know what he was talking about. I was wrong in my post... he doesn't ride a yfz450r... he rides a yfz450. If I'm correct, the 450r has the KTM motor and the 450 doesn't. Oops, my bad.

I do like how Yamaha did the new YZ450F dirtbike with the intake on the front and the exhaust on the back, only makes sense to me! Dunno why they haven't been that way for years?!

Only the polaris and the KTM share the KTM powerplant to my knowledge.
I stand corrected... No problem. I have been riding quads for 2 years and really don't know squat.... yet. That's why I ask so many questions here. Would that be the Outlaw 525??

No worries!

Heck, I didn't get my first quad until 2007, but I have a buddy who has the KTM 525XC and his son has the Outlaw 525 so that's why I know.

Ask away!
