Does the 650 have a level switch.my buddy has problems climbing up short steep rises (like out of a creek bed) it will hessitate and sometimes stall out ,we checked float level and overflow tube, all was good ,tried to make it do it by parking it and tipping it but it doesnt do it when you want it to only when he needs it to keep running

Honda Mechanic... Is that because the 680 has fuel injection...and the 650 has a carb? I had heard that if you tilt the 650 back to far ( doing a wheelie and ending up on the back rack ) that all of the oil, or transmission fluid will run back and you could mess the bike up bad.. Is that true?

Yes the TRX680 has a bank angle sensor because of the EFI ..

I've heard stories of guys that do wheelies for several telephone poles ,that's a long way especially if the bike has an oil bath crank type .. I don't know how far a TRX650 Rincon would be safe to wheelie ..But I'm sure that when it's in a wheelie that most of the 2.9L of oil is inside the sub-transmission case ..

I have ended up on by back rack more times than I wish to count...I haven't had any oil or gas in my air box or any where else...The quad will run standing staight up as long as you keep your thumb on the throttle...However standing on the front rack is a different story
