I have an 08 completely stock except for sheave an I get 51 all day long I would think the extra weight of a 4 seater is why you are at 50, with all your mods

Ya that's what I am thinking to. Due to the 4 seat cage rear seat light rack with 4 7 inch hids. They are slowing me down. Due to weight and wind resistance. Hmmm. Should I change out the spring in the sheave to. I am still running the stock spring. Because I was told the 700 has a good spring on it already compared to the 660s. Idk. Anyone else chime in with some info ? Thanks

a Couple more things
if your tires are bigger than stock, your speed'o will be off
example
28" tire at 55mph = 55mph true speed
33" tire at 55mph = 65mph true speed
to check use a GPS
This is just my understanding of the springs
The spring only change when the belt engages
not sure of actual rpm's but this is just an example
stock spring belt engages at 1000rpm
after market springs belt engages at 2000rpm
Spring do not affect top speed
But someone will correct this or explain it better

My tires are the stock size rhino tire. Maybe ill unbolt the light bar this weekend and see if my top speed changes. Next item on the list is an exhaust. ! Just can't see shelling out that many ben franklins for the ron woods. Lol. Oh well. Gotta pay to play. Could anyone tell me what they paid for their woods exhaust. Thanks.

What happened to your motor KJ? By the way I really like that color you did on your rhino, I know its green but where would I get that color?

Thanks, Nicholas

Thats no good! I race motocross and I had a piston turn in my kx250f and get stuck in the cyclinder, while the rod made a nice whole in the cases. I was wondering about the green because i need to paint my jetski's before the heat comes.

Thanks, Nicholas
