700r Hitch

Hi,

I have designed and built a trailer hitch for the 700r since I couldn't find one to purchase. It has been great to have on our two 700r's on the Ranch. I made more and are selling them on ebay if your interested. Thank you,Jim

How about a link to your ebay page?

Though I may shake my fist at them again tomorrow, tonight I will bow my head and offer these vulcanized tires as tribute. I will cut the night with the sound of wide open throttle...and no matter what....If I am destined for Valhalla....I will enter as a man who did not lift. - Speed Demons prayer to the Gods of Chaos.

What's your setup like? I'm on the fence between building and buying.....so it'd be awesome if while we wait on the Outlander I could take care of our arena with the rappy.

Always wanted to see how a raptor would do with weight behind it. They pull like a train unloaded, I think they would tow well. An upgraded clutch would help a lot

I did change the counter shaft sprocket "smaller" to gear it down on both 700 raptors so when I was in any tight spots I wouldn't have to slip the clutch to go slow with a load in the trailer. Where I live there is a lot of rocky/steep trails and I'm not interested in going as fast and being 60 years old I'm not the hot rod I once was, also I have visitors that ride them and geared down a bit helps them with putting on the steep stuff and riding in general.
