it was most likely a wolvering if it was yamaha, they have a sportquad look with the auto tranny, or it was a kawasaki kfx 700 which are the only sport quads i know of equipped with an auto

Polaris' scrambler line works well for this purpose as well. A guy up here used to ice race on his scrambler 500 in the 4wd unstudded class and had a few wins. He had lost his leg from the knee down. :thumbsup:

you think I could do a auto on the raptor.....
For the effort and cost that it would take, and the fact that you'd basically have to use a grizzly drivetrain, it's cheaper and easier to just buy a kawasaki kfx700. Not to mention performance is still quite good.

its possible but if it were me I would just trade it in for a kfx 700, not to knock the rappy but the kfx would better suit your needs, good luck man :thumbsup:

Thanks for the suggestions, but looks like I may look into the KFX 700 but now too keen on switching to a Kawasaki....but who knows I am going to go to a local ATV shop to see how fesible it would be to switch the tranny ...

well good luck on whatever you decide on. its good your trying to stay in the sport and overcome your hand problem instead of selling the bike and taking up gardening or something

If you're talking abou the rekluse they have no intention of making one for the 660 according to their customer service. They are working on one for the 700 but I wouldnt hold my breath.
