New 700XX guy here

Well, I sort of "claimed" it from my Girlfriend. She bought the 700XX new in 2010, along with a TRX 250X for her daughter. After riding it, she figured out it was just too much bike for her. So, we are now getting a TRX 400 for her, and I took the 700.

As of now, it's all stock. I'm adding nerf bars this weekend, looking at some riser bars due to my height. I rode it HARD this weekend here in Florida at Croom. I must say, it is a wee bit different than any other Sport Quad that I have ridden with a straight axle / swinger... not bad, just different. It's amazing in the technical stuff, but I had to really get on with it to get the power slides down.

I grew up road racing (street bikes) and find that riding this IRS quad really keeps me on edge. Tons of power, wheelies at will, but... the suspension is WAY soft for jumps, and the IRS is a bit picky if you don't land both rear tires at the same time.

I'm glad I found this forum... now, I will spend a few weeks sorting through the threads, and looking at making this quad into my own. I really love the transmission, and the motor is a stonker!

Tons of power!!!

Thanks for the great forum!

By the way, can anyone point me to a sticky or something, for "must do" mods?

Thanks again!

Welcome to the club!

IDK about a sticky but 1st thing I'd suggest is changing factory air filter. Next if you do any slow technical, or hill climbing a 13 front sprocket. Both mods aprox. $40.00 Next I'd look at the rear sway bar, then if funds are still available check into a fuel programmer, and why not toss in the full exhaust kit. Also you mentioned nerfs, that was my 1st upgrade btw. It's a good investment to get a full skid plate and a-arm guards depending on type of terrain you ride in. Then wear out the factory tire's, and upgrade them next! IDk that's just what I'd do, but not what I did, lol well at least not in that order.

Welcome to the site.
I always start out with a good set of nerfs on all my quads. I am running the Houser Bounce Nerfs and they are amazing. They are a bit pricey but they really cut down on fatigue on the long rides. Then I add a steering damper. CCP makes a really nice one for the 700XX. This will cut out most of the bump steer and is adjustable depending on the terrain you are on. The next thing is the stock tires are near the worst things I have ever riden on and the stock wheels are kinda weak. The big problem is that the 11" rear wheels are only made for the 700XX and there are very few options for tires, Maxis RAZR & Kenda Kutters. I am running the Kenda's. I have upgraded my wheels to OMF beadlocks. They are pricey but they are the best wheel I have ever had. You can also change to a 10" rear wheel which will give you way more tire options but you will either need wheel adapters or a different offset wheel making the quad wider. So if you will be riding anything tight you may want to stay with the 11" wheels instead. As for the front tires most of us are running 22" or 23" tires. If you are running nerf bars you may want the 22" tires to be sure they clear. This will help with the caster a bit and make the quad a bit easier to turn. I am saving up now to get the EHS big 3 next. This includes the EHS air box lid, Barkers full exhaust system and EHS controller. Many people on the site run it and love it. If you are running the big 3 you may or may not want to change out the front sprocket. Oh and dont forget a good air filter.

After I added the big3 on my quad, I switched back to the 14t. And that was a mistake! The type of riding I do I still needed the extra low end, you get from the 13t. It would be fine around Ohio but a lot of my riding is in WV. a lot of climbing and slow idling through creeks. I put the 13 back on and have never looked back.
