Getting my 700xx ready to ride again

So, I have not played with my 700xx in a while. I recently decided to get it back in shape after sitting for the last 2 or 3 years. I would start it and ride it around for 15 minutes every 3 or 4 months. I kept fuel treatment in it.

I just ordered everything to change oil and put new uni filter in it. Repack exhaust. New seat cover.

I remember adjusting the valves shortly before letting it sit. And it has an almost new chain.

What else should I do to get it ready and reliable?

ein,

You know this quad as well as any of us. So I'm sure it's ready to roll as is. That said go over it well, check steering stem, tie-rods and all a-arm bushings for play. I know you said almost new, but dbl check the chain adjustment, as well as look for bad links, inspect the sprockets as well. Lube the throttle, clutch & e-brake cable if you have one still, lol. Most important thing I can think of is, remove the right inboard joint and grease it!!! 2nd most important thing, just get out and ride! You said its been sitting 2-3 years what have you been doing, or riding?

Man, I bought a rzr XP and the wife and kid kind of took over my spare time. When I did find time to ride I had a passenger. I just moved into a new home and I had to deal with the 700xx. It made me feel guilty seeing the shape it was in.

I aired up the tires and took it down the road and back this afternoon. I forgot how much ass this quad has. I'm sure the neighbors loved the new guy and his toy. Haha.

A little off topic for engine section but I'm lazy...

How well do maier plastics fit?? Specifically the front fender cover above the headlight?? How well does fighting red match the orig Honda red?? (Gotta keep it red... you know, because it's faster!)

I personally don't have any experience in the maier plastics. But check oem prices on partszilla.com

Thanks M_QUICK!!

I had not heard of partszilla before, but sure enough, they have the factory headlight cover for cheaper than maier.

61310-HP6-A00ZB CVR, FR. TOP *R232* $56.29

Thanks for the help! I will keep this thread updated as I get the 700xx back into trailworthy condition! My parts will be here next week and I should have time to work on it when I get home.

When I bought my 1st one I had a choice in colors. I liked the red headlight cover, but couldn't get over the big red seat.

This is the seat I ordered but without any embroidery:



Once I get it back to 100% I may want to make it faster. Who all still works on engine mods for this machine?

What kind of numbers can be achieved without affecting reliability??

Did anyone ever figure out how to throw boost to this engine and document it??
