DS650 or 700 Raptor

I've decided to give up the ute's. I'm tired of TRYING to keep up with my buddies on 700 V's. I've narrowed my choices down to the DS650 and the 700 raptor.

It will mostly be a trail machine that will see its fair share of drags but mainly trails... Please give me your feedback on whatever you may know about each....the pro's and cons of each...

I've already posted this same thread in the moddedraptor forum. I'm trying to get both sides opinions to help me make the best decision.

Thanks for the help

Pro's

-I've read the the Rotax engine is absolutely SICK with only an aftermarket carb....

-practically indestructable

-plush ride/ lots of travel


Con's

-I've also read a lot saying they are much like the 700 V's in that they are

-too big for any tight trails

-lack of a reverse gear makes it obsolute against the 700 Raptor...
carb



I'm just trying to get the ball rolling here

if i decided to go with the DS i was told something to go with the 04-07???

I guess I have ridden both. I am a big guy and I really like the DS for its size. A friend of mine weighs 170 and he hated the ds because he couldnt through it around. THe raptor front end is just too light for me and the seat on it stinks also. BUT if you ever want to modify it, there are far more parts available for the raptor.

I have been on a ds before and it is a nice machine but way to heavy for me as a trail bike. I love my raptor700. It rides very smooth, lots of power, good suspension. It has been voted the best trail bike for the last 4 years. Ohh and the 700 raptor is fuel injected not carbed

i havent really looked at them to be honest with you. i automatically figured they would be too much $$$. my wife and i are expecting our first kid in june so i cant drop 9-10k.

only reason i'm getting a sport quad is my trans am ws6 is getting sold and i need something thats fast to play on still

i would not give up my outlander for trails, bar none. with some minor clutch work, hmf slip on and 300ft will handle MOST sport bikes on the dirt. put some 25 or 26" tall 13-16pdl on it and they do work in sand too. had a couple that ran 5.4 in 300ft sand. stock internals. one had a ron wood stage 1 kit, the other had a drag tip i fabbed up and a 09 intake. both running paddles.you can get used outlanders in the 5-6k range if you look on craigs list.
