I was wondering if I were to buy like a brand new Honda Foreman,or a new Rubicon,would it be possible to make it REALLY fast,but still just have a foot shift and no clutch?And race worthy fast,such as a GNCC race type.But will probably only mud with it.Just curious.....

there is big bore kits, cams, probably even stroker kits to really get some power out the motor. but most would opt to not go this route because it might lessen the dependability of the quad.

i saw a video the other day of a polaris (yea i know boo!!!) 700 4x4 racing a Suzuki 400 sport 4 wheeler and the polaris draged it.

the thing about a utilty quad if you make it real fast is its higher center of gravity is going to make it more unstable. im going for the same thing with my 300 fourtrax, so i understand where your coming from.

Yea Thank you very much for the reply.I have a 08 420 rancher And I love the 5 speed.Is you fourtrax a 5 speed.To my knowledge some are but I don't really know.Yea about the Polaris "boo" is absolutely correct.I have no liking for them except the Predators,and Outlaws.

Yeah, the Fourtrax 300 is a 5 speed.

You might be able to get a little more speed out of a utility, but the weight and gearing is going to limit you.

That wasn't a Polaris. That was a Yamaha Grizzly 700. Those Grizzly 700s are pretty fast. I have a 660 Grizzly that will run about as good as the 700 Grizzly.
I know it's not a Honda, but it's the next best thing, in my opinion.

My buddy has a modded up Yamaha Grizz and it smokes my 400ex in a drag race. It probly did stock! Its possible to make them fast but as said before they all get unreliable when you mod them!

dohh, i fail.


another thing to consider it you wreck it, its alot more weight that a sports 4 wheeler so its probably gonna hurt that much more.

you might wanna just stick with intake, pipe, maybe higher performance cdi box and jetting. wouldent really want to go into the motor.

but, if you really want to go fast, put a turbo on it :D no telling how long it will last tho....
