Leaving in an hour to go pick up a 08...

always been a fan of the 700xx as my buddy bought one new (his is a 09 model year). A deal arose i couldnt turn down... so im off to a 3 time friend of a friends to go scoop up this 08... im imidiately putting a push bar on it as that plastic thing just isnt gonna cut it, and eventually id like to fab up a solid rear axle for it. And i know i know... people will say i shoulda just found a raptor... but the deal i got i couldnt turn it down!! and i feel the IRS is a epic fail on the part of honda engineers... i rode my buddies and i didnt like at all how it handled but i loved the power!
my previous quad was a 400ex i bought new in 2000 and i track raced it damn near every weekend.

but heres a little bio on me...
my name is don, 31 live in Bay City, MI. I'm a technician for a company called SC Johnson wax, we make things like ZIPLOC bags and glade candles. im a huge car guy, my baby is a 97 camaro SS vert. it is a 383 stroker with a F1 procharger and fed with nitrous. it was just featured in GM High tech performance magazine.
i cant wait to go buy all new gear and hit the trails!!

Does your buddy have a l8ton 11/16 sway bar on his? If not then you should get one. You may change your tune. But congrats either way

Congrats! A solid axle swap would be a huge undertaking. But, like crash said, a l8ton sway bar will cute you of the desire for a solid axle, anyway.

its in better shape than i had thought!! and it runs great... no valvetrain noise so they must have kept up on the maintenance. it has the regular "ive been rode" scratches and one tiny hole in the back of the seat... i guess i cant bitch since i paid... 1600 dollars!! cant wait to start dumping money into it and my 3year old loves it!! i just got home with it and put him infront of me and idled around the yard, he was all smiles.

If you wanted solid axle, I still would of bought a raptor. You are going to have some money in the rea to get it to a sra bike. And the engineers in my book didn't have an epic fail, they built one of the best atvs ever.
