New here and New to me TRX700XX

Well just found this site and bought a well "enjoyed" 2008 700XX.
Slowly restoring it, should be done next month. I'll post pics of before and after once she's done.
Got a lot often stuff needed off eBay, surprising how cheap stuff for the 700XX is. Guess being discontinued after only 2 years of production will do that.

Will be riding this beast with a restored 1986 TRX 250R, yes the good 2-stroke version. Amazing to me how many people think the newer 450R's will blow the doors off a 250R, WRONG! Hoping the old saying "no replacement for displacement" will be true and the 700XX will be able to hang with the old 250R.
If not no big deal, gave my buddy a response to get the old girl put back together

Already found this site to be of a great help with her so thank you all!

What's laser cut in the front a-arm guards? Looks like team on the right side, cant see the left. And looks like you rescued this quad, from someone that just didn't care much about it.

Don't know, they are gone, got a set of Honda Racing a-arm guards, front and rear bumpers off eBay.

Yah the other owner wasn't too nice to it but it's a Honda so she still runs good.

Well got her all fixed up and ready for summer.
Besides adding the Honda Racing stuff also sprung for the following:
Rigid Dually LED lights
HCC Seat Cover
L8Ton 9/16 Sway Bar
EHS Racing Airbox Lid
Swamp Light Rear Tires
New 400EX Front Tires

She sould be good for a good hard extended Memorial weekend of riding!

Thanks for this awesome site too, helped a lot with deciding what to do to her.
Of course, Elka Shocks will be a Christmas gift to myself I think

Wow looking good, that quad had come a long way in the short time you've had it.

According to the wife, I have a new mistress that I have to get all blinged out.
I just call it my mid-life crisis project!

Thanks. Only rode her once so far and didn't get up over 3rd gear and am dying to really open her up over Memorial weekend.

I plan on taking mine out tomorrow, and to be honest I seldom get out of third gear too. Unless I'm out on the open road down in West Virginia. If I run mid to high 3rd gear at Wayne National Forest, I usually leave the other riders well behind.
