Just got my 08 700xx

Hey all, just bought an 08 black/silver 700xx the other day. I have riden Yamahas all my life and it's about time I switch over to Honda. I've had three warriors and a Raptor 660. Honda is just quality...

anyways.. what are some nice 1st mods?

I already bought a 12 tooth front sprocket. Anything else? Not the big 3 yet.

I think you will enjoy the Honda build quality.

As far as mods you got the right idea with the sprocket. Not sure there is much else besides the big 3 if you are looking for engine performance but maybe someone else can tell you otherwise.

Congrats on the purchase and the xx world. You will be very happy. I have heard the 12 T is a little much. The 13T does the job. You could always open it up and let it breath better with a good air filter. You will have plenty more suggestions. Good luck deciding.

My buddy just got a 700xx a little earlier than I did, and he bought a 13T and a 12T. For woods/hills/rocky areas, he thought the 12T was perfect. However, the 14T is just out-of-hand.

Are companies starting to make a rear tire now that fits our rims? I usually run holeshots or mudlites. Are the razor 2's available?

Agreed. I have not tried the 12T but like I said the 13T does a fine job in the toughest of areas. Either way its better than the stock 14.

Also, I notice that the IRS pushes the xx around turns. I'm used to my Raptor 660 with a solid axle. Are you guys getting used to this?
