137.flv video by moodyblaster - Photobucket

I was at busco over the weekend and raced this stock 700r raptor. As long as I could get a good start with out spinning I would take him. He would catch me at the end of the strip if we kept going though. Without going internal what can I do to increse my top end some more. Someone said maybe a big gun rev box...not sure though. I dont know anything about working on this kfx or any other atv so any help would be great. I was told by a guy in a local shop here that a clutch modification would'nt be good since I do alot of trail riding. ????????

I see, said the blind man to his deaf son.

The guy on the Raptor 'should' be whipping that V if its stock.

You have a lot of lil things that will make a HUGE performance difference. start the researching on some of or all of the following.

12 hole mod
ms mod
- you will need to rejet after these two mods
spark plug mod
timing key advance
get your clutch cut by VFJ
different spring
I added a taller rear tire for more topend

so far i have a bone stock internal 700 with the mods listed and i have posted a best of 78.6 mph on the garmin. Have fun and let the games begin.

will replacing my cdi box increase my top end at all.
not on a stock v.it would only be worth it if you were hitting the rev limiter.i think they really come in to play with a bbk
you should do the twelve hole mod and the epi pink spring for the clutch,two cheap mods that make a huge difference

Don't waste your money on a Rev Limiter Box, get your clutch machined, run a decent spring. Get ya some crossover intakes and jet accordingly.

Modify your clutch, almond or blue spring, VFJ or BKP intakes, 25" cheng shin tires, Muzzy pro and 12 hole mod.

These guys got you on the right path

VFJ stage 3 with spidermod and a good spring
12 hole mod on the airbox and jet up
good rear tires 25" for drags only
a few other trick are available and doable.
but these are the big ones you MUST do to get results.;)
OR
Just build it and beat them all

There's a lot of satisfaction in doing some of this stuff yourself---I've always depended on the dealer/stealer to do my work in the past, til I realized how they were ripping me off---I felt helpless cause I didn't know how to do anything myself---Then I met these guys on here and they have helped me every step of the way and they're here to help you too--Everything in my sig I've done myself with their help---Almost all the things they have recommended are nearly free DIY power builders---Just pick out one small thing and read up on it and then if you don't understand post up your questions and someone will walk you through it---You can do it dude.

Ok---Here's a perfect example---To change that spring you have to take out the center bolt in the primary clutch and that bolt turns clockwise to loosen---Not knowing this you could strip or even break that bolt---Here look

Because your V is basically stock---The pink would be the best all around starter after market spring---I honestly don't know about the almond--If it has any stall etc---Pink is like stock no stall---Stall is hesitation before engagement to let rpm's build.
