Slip on will not gain you that much, you are still using stock air and header. 734 kit won't do much if it can't get air in and out.

yeah, I havent heard too many good things about trinity. I would consider checking out kenz or rocket factory for a bore or stroker if you want to get serious.

Check out the 149 mph :metal: raptor in the November issue of Dirtwheels mag. I think that would be fast enough but probiably suffer in the woods. :lol: A good shot NOS would help. :grin_nod:

Trinity's 734 is just fine.....I dont know what your talking about. Infact I am pretty sure rocket started out with a 734 in conjunction with the stroker to get there 770.
I have heard great things about the 734.....just dont expect this 50% hp gain or whatever they say!
Rocket sells the 734 too......and I would definately have them do your porting and such. Its not that trinity does a bad job, its just that supposively there porting is pretty mild.

Dude, do you work for trinity? I am just passing on what I have read. Giving him more options. Its not like I was telling him to sell his 700 for a 450. I was just telling him there are other lesser known but "supposively" (sic) equally good or even better companies to consider.

........no actually you said "I havent heard too many good things about trinity"......leading him to believe that trinity is bad. :chair:
and no I dont "work for trinity"........ha ha. I just dont see the need to dis on a company that is making a good kit for the 700.....for really no reason. I havnt heard of any problems with the 734.....talked with countless owners. The only one that has had a problem was because he took in water and bent the rod.
I agree that rocket and kenz are awesome companies......but there is nothing wrong with the trinity 734 kit either. ;)

First get a full exhaust, fuel controller, and new airfilter. When you get tired of that look at bore/stroke/cam/port/compression increase.

I personally don't take too much stock in what someone's heard from someone else who's heard something. If we all gave information based on personal experience or even stuck to reiterating first hand experiences we've heard from people we trust the data out there would be a lot more reliable.

Well I've had my 734 kit for a while now no problems. My only problem was that I had a bent rod but that had nothing to do with trinity. My bike has been running without any problems. Now the big bore is great, maybe there port and polish is not as good because its very mild but theres nothing wrong with it. Is there better porting being done, guess there is. Also remenber they where doing the big bore and the port and polish way before before any one was, maybe they where playing it safe who knows. Maybe there working on bigger and better. But one thing is that its not junk. Nothing bad to say here about trinity. :thumbsup:

700rider:

May I ask what caused the rod failure?

That 734 kit sounds real nice.

Are they taking the stock jug and boring it from 102mm to 105mm? or, 105.5? Then re-nikasil coating it? Or, sleeve?

Is the stock jug in the Raptor 700 a cast alum. jug with a nikasil coating or sleeve like the old 660?

What compression piston are most guys getting with this kit?

Anyone have any pictures of the stock jug next to the 734 jug?

Is the MLS gasket used?

Ok, that's all I have to ask. . . thanks!

The main reason I didnt go with the 105.5mm piston is it takes "custom" copper gaskets because the factory Yamaha gasket is 103mm(which is my bore size now). There is nothing wrong with copper gaskets, I just want a gasket thats readily available. The Yamaha one is a multilayer as well and its a great gasket. The 700r has a nickle seal coating on the aluminum jug, I just bored it out and put an iron sleeve in it:

Rockets gasket is suppose to work great.....trinities is the one you definately want to stay away from!
