Mostly stock with full skid plates, swingarm plate, shock link plate, a arm plates, rear rack, rear hitch, 13T front sprocket, K&N air filter, winter tire setup (ITP steel wheels, with Kenda Rampage tires). Looking to add front bumper, nerf bars and possibly exhaust and rejet in the summer. If anybody has any used parts for a good price, let me know.

Nice Quad.
Wow Kenda tires. Those tires look like blackwaters, which my father-in-law loved on his ride. They ought to keep you going forward.

Those are some exactly like MudShark tires. Had them on my 400ex, best tire ever. How do they run in the snow? Debating if I want to get those or some Holeshots right now

The Rampages are from what I hear are the old Blackwater design. The Duro Excavators and Mudsharks are the closest I've seen even remotely similar. They are unreal in the snow and mud... from a dead stop, they sit there and dig until they get traction on the ground / mud or will bottom you out onto the frame / swingarm. I ran them a little on the packed dirt road and are extremely squirrely. I got the 22" for more ground clearance. Definitely not a dirt / summer tire! I have stock dunlops on there now and once they are worn / punctured, prob getting Holeshot XCR, X Rex or Razrs. I wouldn't suggest these Rampages for anything but snow / mud. I can see them tearing up trails quickly if ridden on soft ground.

Forgot to include that little gas tank saddlebag that holds my .380 on one side and 5th of vodka on the other Smile

An awesome all around tire perfect for sport quads are the holeshots and RZRs.. 4 ply will hold up to most things in the trails, but if you want you can upgrade to 6 ply but there much heavier

I have always liked the look of the maxxis irazr. They look nice for an all around tire.

We have holeshots on one of the z400's, an RZRs on the blaster, I personally think the Holeshots are the better tire. They seem a little more beefy, and the rubber seems a bit softer

as for tires stay with 6-ply who wants to ruin a day from a tire. riding style has alot to do with the tire of choice. Check around with other outlaw owners to see what is working for them because the IRS throws another variable in tire selection.
Maxxas I-Razr radials are super, but some may not like the slidability, good tread that stays cleaned out and hooks hard in straightline.

If you get new rims, get one inch bigger in the rear. The stock ones rub against the caliper and a arm when you jump or go over rough terrain. I plan to go up a size as well this summer

I have a 2006 KFX700 at the moment.
It has Hyper beadlocks, HMF pipes, Elka suspension, as well as nerfs bumpers and some tranny mods. Its pretty much built to deal with Western Pa riding.

I have also had various 4x4's, banshee's, dirt bikes and a Warrior over the years. But the Kawie my only toy at the moment

Awesine Bike! Do you feel the KFX700 has a slow acceleration compared to lets say a 400? Such as the z400. We were thinking about the machine, but the acceleration turns us away. Its awesome though, a big bore auto sport quad Very Happy Must be fun in the woods

Thanks guys. I bought it new and i have been upgrading a little here and a little there as i could afford it.

I can lay a beating on most bikes out of the hole. I completely infuriated my friend because his yfz450 could never take me on the bottom.
Unfortunately for me that's the only place i can keep up to him. by the time he gets into 3rd gear he has me owned.

It will accelerate faster than most 450's it just falls flat in the top. The biggist acceleration problem i have is balancing tire spin and nose lift. There is no clutching it out like on the manual bikes.


It dosn't have as much speed as some machines but it has more brute power than anything short of the old Quadzilla.
