A 750 Kawasaki V force engine and driveline would make that buggy haul the mail!!

I have a KFX700 sitting in the garage...FST 700 kit installed, plus 6 swing arm, Elka suspension, oil cooler, and a freshly powder coated frame... Thinking about selling it because I don't ride it much.

V-Force rear end wouldn't work...SRA. I would go with a Brute rear end with the IRS...problem is with that idea is there just isn't enough room behind the driver for all the Kaw motor/drivetrain/suspension without adding some length to the frame...My thoughts are to run the belt drive down to Honda rear end but I need to look closer to see if that's even possible.

He He - Usually Modette monitors my tire wear . Take note off to the right of the picture a brand new spankin D606. I will show a pic from the rear once it is all together. No problems with the mud guard or silencer I got some inspiration from a commercially available product on that part.

Let's see some failure evidence, sounds like a common issue.... do you have some pics?

Heck, maybe I should rebuild the whole frame?

YEah! Me too. I remember when they came out. Huge improvement over the older odysseys, much better suspension and a 400cc 2stroker with a centrifugal clutch ...wrist straps to keep from ripping your arms off in a roll-over etc...making me want to find one too. Always were very rare around these parts as I recall. Not sure I've ever even seen one in person, just a few odysseys here and there over the years.

I've seen them around. 6k new back in the day. I bought a Blaster for $1800 OTD in '88 instead.

That's a nice score Pretty rare these days. As for giving it more power, I'd try to get one of the Honda 700cc motors off the 4 wheeler, basically the 650R motor evolved into a 4wheeler config. Retain the clutch, add a shifter, an FCR carb and a pipe, now 'ur talkin badass!

That roll cage and wrist straps are on there for a reason, those have a narrow wheelbase. Rolling something like that isn't hard at all, I managed to end up upside down a couple times in a sandrail, carefull, it happens quick.

Cry Spanked by my BRP

Couple of buddies and I decided to ride the Pozo Hangover ride on New Years. I stripped everything I could off trying to lighten the load but still ended up getting worked. I really need to work on staying upright for more than 5 minutes in a row Some suffering for your viewing pleasure.










The after party.

From XR650R

Nice video Superhobie. Makes me want to put my dirt rims on and go get dirty. My pig always tosses me on the ground the first part of a endurance race, get that out of the way and we get along like peas and carrots.

What is in my stator cover?

While stripping down my recently purchased XR I saw this:




It looked like ATF. Smells like gas. I don't think it is oil leaking through the seal. Possibly spilled gas that leaked through a gasket? Anybody seen anything like this or have a guess?

Thanks.
