Proud new 700xx owner!

Well it may have took me 6 years but I finally got one of these awesome machines. I have had mine for about two months now and all I can think to say is "Wow!". The xx is almost everything I thought it would be. Smooth comfortable ride, great handling, insanely fast acceleration and it can still whip around corners like an sra with the l8ton sway bar. My only gripe so far is the top speed, I was under the assumption this would do 76-80mph stock but I can only get mine to 70. I must have a 13 tooth front sprocket or something, although I was told it was all stock. Does 70 sound right for a 13 tooth?

When I bought it, everything was stock even had original tires although they were damn near bald. I intend to take care of it more than the previous owner, when I changed the oil it was black as could be. The valves where way out of spec and the air filter was caked with dirt. After doing all of my maintenance I noticed the motor got a bit quieter but it still has a rattle at certain rpm. Possibly a bad cam chain and tensioner?

Anyways, I live way up north in Calumet, Michigan. My grandparents have a 90 acre farm and live off a mixed traffic road so I can legally drive down the road to get to the trails. The xx seems right at home on the trails around here. There is a wide range of trails here some are more technical, some are very rutted up and muddy while others are well maintained and wide open. The scenery is also spectacular, I may have to try and make some videos at some point or pictures at the least.

Since I bought it I have put on some Kenda Kutters in the rear and left the front stock for now. I used some plasti dip on my rims, so far they seem to be holding up well. I replaced the oem air filter with a uni filter. I also installed a trail tech vapor with the dashboard. Since then I have put 180 miles on it and I think about 8 hrs of ride time. I cant see myself riding anything else, I am so glad I picked one of these up. I'm no photographer but here are some pics anyways. I tried the drag and drop feature but it didn't seem to work right.

The word "stock" may be referring to engine mods only... That muffler sure isn't stock. Top end speed should be around 75+, even with a 13t. Just a note for you for future reference: The 700xx uses the same front sprocket as a TRX450r of '06 or newer.. Don't try looking for a 700xx front sprocket... You'll only find stock ones (14t)

Enjoy your 700xx and welcome to the club.

At $27.41 a piece times 14 plus 2 needle bearings for the bottom rear its a little over $400! Thanks for the advice, I will have to grease them when I get the chance.

There's a lot of things that factor into top speed. Rider weight, gearing, wind, tire size etc.

Try using a GPS (can get free apps for smart phones) to test top speed. It's possible that the trail tech is off a bit.

Looks like you have an awesome area to ride. Enjoy.

Good point about how he's measuring his speed. Mine will go over 80 with a 13t and I'm 230 w/out gear. Should hit 78 pretty easy, if 70 is for real I'd say top end is about to let go.
