came across a 1998 xcr 700 on classifieds.
its not the xcr i want, that would be a 99-03 xcr 8, or the ves xcr 7....however, at 1350 obo on classifieds, eh if i can pick it up for a 1000 bucks i could always use a project, and its here on the island.
heres the questions ;
1/ are they almost as fast as a xcr ves 7? i realize throttle response wont be obviously, but top end , wide open is it much different?
2/ is this basically a ultra 680 with triple pipes or is it a different motor?
3/ are they reliable like the ultras, or is it time bomb like mono block xcr 600s a few years older?
4/ what kinda hp numbers did these produce?
5/ aggressive chassis. hows it compare to the wedge?heavier?better ride?
6/ any achiles heels to watch out for?bad cranks ?etc?
