    So my daughter really wants me to build her, her own little buggy. I've been thinking about this for a couple years. Anyways, what are your guys thoughts on useing a kawasaki 700 V force for the power source. This would give her an automatic and reverse. Plus its shaft driven, which should be more durable verses a chain drive. I should also be able to quite it down enough for trail riding. Wouldn't have enough to push it hard through the dunes, but would be more than enough for camping and trails. More I think about it, I think it sounds kind of fun.

    I have a kfx700 and also would like to make a buggy from it. I thought about a diff out the front of motor to Run dual swing arm setup for rear. These have a lot of power.

    I am sure that engine will be great for you.

    Wondering how the shaft drive is set up with the CVT.

    Is like a Polaris gearbox?

    It's similar. I would probably use the rearend out of a kingquad, that is setup for independent suspension already.

    I was thinking, cut the axle and weld on plates to mount CVS to.
