2008 Honda TXR700XX

Recommended Posts

Today someone traded me this 700XX  for this Kymco 300.... I will need to do some work as far as the guy told me.... is fuel injected motor and Supposedly a rare bike!!! IDK You guys help me out here.... maybe I made a mistake?  Or did I get something nice? I fear is the piston low compression as that indicates bad rings!!!!

Depending on what the XX needs you probably got a good deal. The 700xx was only produced for 2 years so they are not that common. @Akunin has one and can give the goods and bads about them better than me (I haven't even rode one yet).

 

Kymco is a Taiwan company isn't it? An old company but newish in the states.

M-Quick knows these things inside and out so hopefully he pops on here or possibly PM him. 

 

For me personally though I would have jumped on that trade. I'm very impressed with the xx and I consider it the best quad I've ever owned. Looks like its had its share of upgrades and it looks to be in overall good shape.. my only concern would be .. did you get a clean title or a bill of sale with verified identification? With trades I'm always leery about them. Being stolen. But if that's good to go I say.. ! good trade!

 

If your use to riding a solid rear this thing will surprise you in the corners. It hooks like none other so be prepared if your expecting to spin cookies or whip the back end like a raptor. The independent rear grabs and wants to go straight. If it's a concern look into getting a different sway bar. Independent rears are amazing in rough terrain. 

 

That said if you into jumping this again is another difference from a solid rear.. you can come off a jump and land on one wheel with the IRS vs never wanting to on a solid rear. 

 

Just a few things off the top of my head but it's a Honda and lives up to its reputation.  Tear into those rings and enjoy it!!
