Ds650

I rode a stock DS650 for the first time yesterday. It felt a little akward........I thought the 700xx set up high for a sport quad, but nothing like that thing. My first impression power wise would put it somewhere between a stock Z400 and a stock Raptor 660. Is that about right, or does it have issues?

if it was stock and running good it blows away a 660 raptor with K&N filter and full exhaust in top end and always stayed even with me until i would get into 5th and my buddy would just pull away and he weighed about 60 pounds heavier than I did

Garrett22..........If it is tuned correctly and he is a decent rider it will eat our 700xx's easily in a drag race. They have up to 855 kits for those Rotax engines in the DS 650 and it will really make them walk the dog!! If it were not for the XX's being $4500 out the door, IRS, FI, and rewind my DS would already have a 720 or 730 kit and I would be satisfied horsepower wise but stuck with out rewind. For now though I love the IRS, FI, and reverse, but grumpy about the lack of power my XX has with the Big 3. The XX will eventually get some compression and headwork if not some additional cc's.

The stock one I rode must have had issues, cause it was a dog. The seat and ergos reminded me a little of a jet ski.

I assure you it was sick if it felt like a Z400. Stock DS to stock XX drag race will be decided by rider. I have both. Sold the other DS with TM 48 carb, Ron Woods in frame drag pipe and aftermarket CDI with no internal engine mods and it would consistantly but not always pull my XX with EHS Big 3 in a drag race with fairly equal riders. Buddy still has a DS with a few internal mods and it will pull Big 3 XX's all day long with his not very skilled 300 lbs sitting in the saddle.

Thanks, that's what I thought. I out dragged a piped one pretty good a few years back on my R, but I didn't think it was that bad.

So it sounds like stock vs stock they are equal and then whoever has the most mods after that wins?

EEHonda........As long as you kept rider skill equal that would be an accurate statement.
