FOR SALE.  The KMS Performance Raptor 727 for 2012 Pro Desert ATV racing


Pro Desert 2007 Raptor 700 for sale 
New Images added, these show exactly how the quad will be sold.

New baby forces sale.  This beast has 1 desert race on it and one GP race after I spent a lot of time and money building it.  Our team won the 2010 Vegas to Reno expert class on this quad and placed in the top 6 in the pro class in 2012.  It is also featured in ATV magazine advertising right now for Wolfsnout.  I purchased this quad in Nov of 2011 from my team mate and I quickly went to work prepping it to win the 2012 Best In the Desert Championship.  No expense was spared.  We were in 3rd in the Pro class at the Parker 250 when the engine case cracked at mile 38.  Kelly at KMS replaced the engine cases and added a gusset kit and then we did one 40 mile warm up race in Tucson leading up to the 550 mile Vegas to Reno race.  We finished 6th at vegas to reno in the Pro class.  We had some downtime replacing fuel tank bolts and fixing the light rack.  We had the most powerful and fastest pro quad out there, other teams knew how much power we had and the engine proved it can survive long races.  101mph on asphalt during Henderson 250 race. 96mph on loose dirt during race.

This is a very well sorted pro level quad, it is very fast, has excellent range, handles good and stops good.  Shortly after the 2012 Vegas to Reno race I broke my wrist so I was unable to ride for a few months.  I still prepped this quad in hopes of using it at the Parker 250 but my wrist wasn't healed in time .  So here the quad sits, fully prepped and ready to ride.  It has 0 hours on it since being serviced. Clean title in hand.  I am selling it with all the spare parts I have for it which you need to have a successful race program, you gotta be prepared for anything.

Here is a breakdown of what was done and how much time is on each part. The stuff I paid for has the price I paid.

KMS 727cc custom engine Build.  Huge head stud kit, KMS head porting, KMS cams, KMS spec clutch, KMS piston, Gussetted cases.  This engine was built by Kelly to prove that his builds can survive real desert racing.  71-78 rwhp depending on compression ratio.

Maier flush fit tail light works but the brake sensors are unplugged so it doesn't come on when you hit brakes, only on when headlights are on.    
The bad:  OEM right headlight is gone.  The plastics have a few seasons on them, they have the scratches to show it.  They look good with the new graphics on them.  Bumpers are also a few years old but powdercoat is fresh. Maier plastics are cracked where it holds the factory dashboard.  It is held together with zipties, works fine but doesn't look awesome.    
I have a Clarke screw top adapter for the tank.  I can sell the quad with the standard screw top or the dry break.    
Price is $8000 obo for everything.  email me if interested:
