67 mph in a 700 Rhino, with passenger

Just thought i'd share the results of a 700 Rhino I just finished.

Took it out to Ocotillo Wells this morning to do some testing with the customer and check some EFI mapping in the real world.

The Rhino is a 2 seat SDR built Rhino 700 with the usuals, 2 seat cage with aluminum roof, seats, bumper, doors, wheels and tires, long travel, etc.

It came to me with an MSD Charge FI, Muzzy duals, an AFE intake, and a BRP sheave kit. On map#4, it topped out at 48 mph, indicated on the stock dash.

It got an 11:1 stock bore CP piston, Web Cam and rockers, Benchmark mild port job, +1mm valves, 5 angle valve job, and valve spring/retainers. Benchmark clutch tuning, and still using the stock throttle body, nothing exotic here.

After sorting out the mapping, with both of us in the Rhino, plus a laptop and an Autronic air/fuel ratio meter, it did 67 mph indicated down San Felipe Wash and Shell Reef road. It was pretty impressive, and the best part is how hard it pulls from about 55 mph to 65 mph, like a cheetah!

Not bad I think.
Sorry, no pics or video.

great job chris, those are impressive results from a stock bore and stroke!!!

i like what im starting to see from the 700's, looks like there are a couple shops that are starting to get these things dialed. kyles 700 went 65 in the sand, and flew up china.

Chris so that was at 8600?
I read this on Joeys site-

"That was about 8600 RPM. Hit the limiter at 8000. Raised it to 8500, hit the limiter again. Raised it to 9000, pulled to 67 mph and that was all it had. Lowered the rev limiter down to 8800 RPM. The cam would be considered a Stage II. It still idles good, and makes great torque down low. We did some pretty good rock climbs in 4 low at low RPM just to try it out and it worked great. "

mine is set at 8000 max- do you think it is safe to raise it up higher?
I was hitting 65 and was clicking 66 at glamis all weekend and never hit the limiter???

Cant we all get along? lol

The Rhino I worked on has a BRP sheave. Your sheave probably has more overdrive, which is why it is at a different RPM with a similar MPH.
I am pretty comfortable spinning these engines to nearly 9000. However, your engine may not want to turn that kind of RPM with the stock head. The only way you'll know for sure is to test it out and prove it one way or another.

Thanks for all the compliments. The more I work on these 700 Rhinos, the more I like them. Not to mention serviceability. I can't emphasize enough, how much easier it is to work on than my Teryx. It is also more user friendly than a 660 Rhino.
One example is the CVT cover. Yamaha made part of the chassis removeable, and relocated the number and location of bolts that hold the cover on. It is very easy to remove for clutch access.
