happy Are you satisfied with your 700xx?

Assuming you own one, would you recommend one to someone else who rides like you. What would you change?

What did you ride before?

For the price we paid for these, adjustable shocks would have been good.
Better plastics where your boots rub would be good too. Mine look like I took sandpaper to them.

A parking brake that can stand up to the mud and dirt would have been nice. I have taken mine off since I got tired of adjusting it all of the time.

I can live with the stock suspension, but front wheels pushing in the turns is my biggest complaint. I can't wait to find a solution thats reasonable.

I don't have much to complain about but wonder how power increases will be dealt with not having a swingarm to extend. The bike stands up easy as is and will only be worse when upgraded. Other than that I love the bike

Yeah, not being an engineer I can guess that they could have the rear a-arms "swept" back a little to extend the wheelbase.

could always add a wheelie bar! How about some ballast on the front like a winch?

Or a front mounted battery.

I wouldn't want to offset the balance of the bike putting weight in the front although it is a good thought. Some rear offset a-arms wouldn't really work because you would have to move the entire rear subframe with it in order for the cv shafts not to bind... Only option is an extended rear subframe. It may not be that far fethced of an idea but I'm offshore and can't go look over the bike to see what it would take.

You might have something there! There is a lower subframe that looks like it could be extended but the upper a-arms are connected the tail end of the main frame. I think an adapter could be fabricated, but it would need to be elaborate. Perhaps a whole new subframe that included upper a-arm mounts would be easier. Keep in mind I'm only looking at a parts diagram of the frame on Motosport.com, a more thorough investigation maybe warrented.
