No issues yet.

I need to grease my handlbar stem. I need to replace the rear pads, but that's not an issue that is reliability related.

Hello
Have not had any real issues yet. Its been a great bike.
I will say I had a stick in the woods pull my neutral light switch wire off on me one day. Other than that no problems.

Don't let this liar BS you... Remember this is the same guy who posted pictures of a guy riding a KFX700 and claimed it was him. PSW has never...N-E-V-E-R posted a picture of himself with a 700XX or any other ATV for that matter.

Wow it looks like you and KTM really seem to hate each other. I just got my XX in the beginning of august. I completely agree about the black plastics, they don't stay clean at all and they wear down to white way to fast. It's a good thing the Quad makes up for it though, this thing is crazy powerful. I've never had to much trouble getting it to slide around corners (it's not like I'm on an mx track with it) and it soaks up whoops and jumps like nothing I've ever ridden. Here's some pics from the day I brought it home.

Welcome to the site partyboy! I have the black combo also. Man, that thing was beautiful when it was fresh outta the box. The only issue I have had with mine is the phony plastic fasteners that attach the heel guards to the foot peg are already broken off on one side. I knew that the black plastic was doomed from day one, so I got over that pretty quick. Other than that, no complaints, I really love it more with every ride. I haven't been out since the middle of June, so I'm jonesing a bit. And you are right, there is some real hatred between YSW and a few KFX guys and KTM, but most if not all of it was brought on by YSW himself. If he would just post one picture of him with his XX, it would shut a lot of people up!

Yeah I haven't lost any fasteners yet, but I think i'm going to go with the all aluminum PRM Heel guards that would go in place of those anyways. I've already bent my shifter twice b/c of the lack of protection there. I haven't taken it on a really long trip yet, just some sandpit stuff, but I'm going up to Maine on friday (there's supposed to be 4 inches of rain) so I'll hopefully take some pics and give a ride review of this thing in the mud. I've seen a little bit of the gooey stuff and it hasn't had too much traction with these tires, but i'm betting that the ground clearance will keep it from getting really stuck.

Oh, also you can kind of see the z400 on the right in my second pic... that's the quad I was supposed to buy, but my buddy decided to get it while I was debating the financing. Ended up waiting a month and finally getting the 700xx. After riding both and the Raptor 700, I don't think I'll ever go solid rear axle again.

Good choice on the 700 over the z400 for sure! Wait until you trail ride this thing and you will REALLY be happy. If you look at the "Product and Service Reports" there is a ride review thread. There are some very good, detailed ride reports from posterboy, scuzz and myself. Enjoy the read! I'm heading out for a three day trip next month. I don't really ride much except for when I go on weekend trips unfortunately.
