there not a fun trail sledI disagree. I had an older 700 that I loved and those that I know who have the '99-'00 700, like it also. It might not have the same power as the competition, but unless you're going to a race, who cares!
I think I remember reading that the clutching needed a little help and if he wants more power, that motor was originally designed for twin pipes. I don't know of any major problems or recalls with that motor (other than the bad rap for being old).
So I assume since it was the first ride that it wasn't even broken in yet? Seems like a premature decision to sell so soon. ??? I do agree though that they were nothing special in stock form as far a performance goes. They remind me of the Yammi Vipers, crap stock but very strong runners once properly set up.Originally posted by ARCTICZRT600@Oct 8 2002, 08:01 PM
I have a riding buddy that bought one new in 99 and sold it after the first ride. He said he couldn't touch the 600's and he was getting spanked all over the place.
