and got my ass spanked! :'(Well 4-5 bike lengths but on the hit I pull then he pulls back, but that is enough to piss me off. It WAS a raptor 700SE, he now also is stroked/cammed to a 727 from rage and is running a +6 swinger, custom map, everything is removed other than the rear brake assembly and things that have to be there, drag axle, lightweight everything. Bike put down 65rwhp on a slipping clutch, from a dig(stop) I come out of the hole on him on pavement but top end he kills me. We ran from 2nd gear and 3rd gear punches and I just felt well... I guess like most quads do when I pull them .... Thats when I realized I had the 12tooth sprocket up front :lol: 719 build is coming soon but I'll still be on stock carbs, hopefully that will be enough.


After today I realized I didnt want to sell my 660... once there built, it doesnt matter..... after the suspension/swinger and new 719 build what woudl be the point of losing money buying a 700??

New goal is to make sure I dont lose to him again......hopefully CSR can help me out with this one!

Unfortunately this sort of thing leads to an "arms race" and you guys will just drive each other into the poor house spending money to be faster. Even if I built you a 719 that would dust him off, he would step his game up and then you'd be in the same boat again. If you really want to stay ahead of him for the long-term, 39s and dual exhaust is what its gonna take on a motor that is built from the ground up to run the carbs and pipes.

if you get them now, it will be cheaper in the long run. If you don't get the 39s now and decide to go to them later, the head will have to be reported for them to take full advantage of them.

just trying to save you some coin man.

I aprreciate it, I'll be going with the 39's. Do it once and do it right. Might even want to do a different bore/stroke.... I wont be available today but I'll try and give you a call tomorrow to talk about different options.

On a serious note, I am looking for all the pieces to do the swap, let me know if you run across the pieces to do it. I'm not planning to do it anytime soon but I would like to get the long block and other parts into storage so I have them when I get around to doing it.

I can get ahold of 2-3 full longblocks for you. Infact I almost bought one to do a 4valve turbo setup with it, it had 5k miles and he would give it to me for $950 lol..... Just let me know when your ready.
