grin New Buyer has questions???

I am looking at picking up a 2008 Honda TRX 700, and my question is where do you get replacements parts? How reliable are they? and are there anything else I need to know pros, cons of owning one of these machines.
Thanks in advance,

You buy genuine parts from honda.. aftermarket parts from wherever takes your fancy..
Lots on ebay and that can lead to shops and things.
Pro,s - japanese reliabilty, great ground clearance, comfy ride.
Doesnt power slide as well as a solid rear axle quad but the irs more than makes up for it.

Welcome to the club! And are you kidding me, it's a Honda we don't replace parts, unless upgrading! But for real, they are pretty reliable, only major setback on mine was the rear inboard joints. They need maintenance, and I learned the hard/expensive way. Honda failed to mention maintaining this area in the manual.

you can get parts from all the heavy hitters,there is no shortage that we know of.there is plenty of aftermarket too but not near as many as raptor700

I did a lot of internet searching and comparing and Partzilla has OEM parts for the cheapest prices with shipping included....but like they said there's no shortage of parts on any of the major hitters. Ebay is also pretty good once you sift thru the garbage.

Great

Thanks guys I appreciate the feedback, what maintenance is required for the CV joints? I have never owned one and am not quite sure about the rear end maintenance.

If your refering to the above quote, I was not talking about the cv joints. The inboard joints is where the axles connect inside the rear carrier. And if all goes well you just pop the right one out, and lube it up and then put it back together. There's plenty of threads here about it, and the service manual covers it as well.

It's a good thing to check when purchasing a used trx700xx, cause parts are around $300 for both joints. Welcome to the club! And are you kidding me, it's a Honda we don't replace parts, unless upgrading! Parts # 8 and 2 in diagram. http://www.partzilla.com/parts/searc...AFT/parts.html

Welcome to the site!

After I bought my 700xx used the previous owner abused the plastics and didn't take much care for it. The first order I placed was HUGE order with Partzilla, well over $700 all new plastics, misc. missing screws, bolts etc and I have never had a problem with them. I did probably 4 more orders for other things and had very good service. The one thing I will say is don't be in a real hurry though with Partzilla. Sometimes they are not too fast and if the part is on backorder you have no information telling you that. I found that out when I ordered parts for my daughters Raptor 90.
So if you know you need a part for a repair your planning on I would suggest ordering it in advance to cover your A$$.
