Anyone get a top speed yet??

Just wondering if any 170 owners have gotten a top speed yet. I know they dont have a speedo on them, but I was just curious before we get one. Are you owners happy with the 170??? Please let me know your thoughts on this machine. Kids are 8 & 10 but they ride thery 90cc quad at 30mph and I dont want them bored on this. Any input would be great before I slap 4K down and then not be satisfied. Thanks!

Re: Anyone get a top speed yet??

They top out about the same, bout 30. It's safer, fun to drive, and scrappy. Thing is though, for that age I'd get into something bigger if speed is what they wanna move up on. I'm 30 years old though, and I love drivin this lil thing! Be prepared though, you will need to buy Factory UTV's skid plate & filter kit right off the bat to have it last at all.

Re: Anyone get a top speed yet??

Could we get a little info on you wheel/tire combo? 23" I would have thought would be too big.... What wheel or wheel/spacer combo did you go with to make them work. I'd love to have the additional lift!! It certaily sound like the little think still hauls a$$ to if your getting 34MPH at 6000'.

Ours was about 32MPH before the intake and jet changes. Haven't had it out to check the latest top end yet...

Re: Anyone get a top speed yet??

Ours is around 28 mph in Texas. The kid down the road rides a quad and said he would gladly give up his quad for this thing. He said it was a blast and he is 11 years old. Also you will need to change the filter system due to the fact that the OEM is insufficient. I ordered a kit form: factoryutv.net The original is only a foam piece sitting on top of a wire mesh screen.

Re: Anyone get a top speed yet??

I got the Douglas .190 t9pro wheels part # kar006-38 and kar006-23 Im not running any spacers and they fit fine with 7psi in them. I rerouted the parking brake line just to be safe though. It looks to have the same width as stock but I haven't measured. It has lost some of the low end but can still spin them. I only have the one pic as of right now but I will get more.
