Need Good Advice

ok guys i have a chance to buy a mint 09 700xx. i have never drove one however i have heard that they struggle when it comes to wooded trails. i live in northern new york and have plenty of places to ride, but at one point or another i run across more than a few tight spots where lugging down and crawling over stuff is necessary. what should i do? i dont want a quad that stalls out in the rough stuff but i need irs for where i ride, i want a quad with some balls too, any suggestions???

Change the front sprocket for a 13t. If you have the cash a fuel controller and a full exhaust would improve the acceleration if you actually need it.

Buy it, put a 13t front sprocket on. And don't listen to those that tell you this quad struggles in the woods. Learn to ride it, and ask them to try and keep up! And welcome to the club!

mitch57,
This is a great machine for the woods and all riding conditions. Good clearance, plenty of power through the range (13T is a must). Dependable and well made. JMO

You won't be disappointed!
Change the front sprocket to 13 tooth, get the L8ton sway bar and you'll be on your way!

I have to agree with changing to a 13t front sprocket... gives you better low end in all gears. I'd also add a CCP steering stabilizer and a 9/16" sway bar... Total cost under $500
Plus learning to ride an IRS would help.
