Took my bike out for a top speed run today. My bike is dead stock, I come in at 6' and 265 lbs. I wasn't trying to duck wind or anything going very slightly uphill(might as well call it flat). I new it would be good when first took me almost to 30, as I shifted into 5th I was passing 50(not all the way in it). Next time I checked gps it was clicking off 74-75-76, last time I looked before letting off I hit 80. That's damn fast on a stock atv. As per the safety guys, it wasn't the brightest thing to do but I did have on my helmet. Wonder how close the gps speed is. What's the fastest claimed speed on the XX?

I just did this myself the other day and hit 78mph and ran out of road. I was still climbing too. Had just a little left in it. I put the vid on you tube.

907.6 MPH but then this guy's in the loony bin because he didn't even know what a quad was... j/k

I think you'd hit the rev limiter at 87.5 but then, you wouldn't get to the rev limiter on a stock 700. Doubt you'd even get there with the big 3. So to hit 80 on a stock 700... I'd consider that quite good if your GPS is accurate.

When mine was 100% stock 14T sprocket I hit 66 mph on a half mile or more straight run throttle pinned.

With a uni, free flowing air cleaner lid, PC5, 13T and a Yoshi slip on I have hit 72 mph on a half mile or more pinned throttle run. I am not on the rev limiter, just runs out of torque.

Just for reference I weigh 215 and my GPS is accurate I have checked it against 2 other units, all read the same.

bone stock down pavement i hit 80mph running beside my buddies 07 pontiac g5, did the same run in my ol 94 chevy pickup and the speedo ran 75 but she's got a set of 33's on her with no speedo changed so i expected the speed to go up a little with his car and it did, 80 is fast for stock

Correct, I was never able to hit the limiter with the Big3, I have hit it since my build though. In all honesty 87 is overkill for ANY kind of trail riding. I live in the city and the entire block across the street from me is smooth open field. When I race from one end I have to lock up front and rear at 3/4 field and only stop sliding when I hit the road. I'm usually only at the bottom of 5th when doing this. I've got to really stay on top of not blasting down trails, I'd love to get a chance for some desert racing.

I went to the badlands over the weekend and primarly used 1,2, and 3rd gear. I used 4th once on a huge sand hill and never came close to 5th. There was a raptor in our group and the xx truly showed how dominating it can be in the trails. I was able power wheely up and across the dunes as well, just awesome. After that trip I realized I really don't need to worry about top speed EVER. Lol

I can't wait till I get my uni/pcv/fmf full system exhaust and see what happens. I haven't been able to race anything bigger than a 400 kawie but these things are good runners. I was in grass and playing around, started off hard in 1st and spun on takeoff, hit second and barely pulled fronts up, hit third and had to let off because it was coming up fast. Wasn't trying, but was impressed it talked itself into a wheelie. That's a lot of power, can't wait for more. On a side note also got a nitrous kit for my dak R/T, looking for low 12's.
