Re: Which is the best

fromwhat ive read the yzf would be better for racing if that is what you are looking for. Also "off the line" as in racing is all the rider.

Re: Which is the best

it repeated tests, the raptor was smoked buy the yfz, except was 2 mph faster in the top end...big deal...

although does cost more i would go for the yfz, heard only good things including resevior suspension stock, wide stance, and very very respnsive to a pipe, jetting and filter w/lid off, you gain like 7 ponies!!

that is enough to make me want it since my friend just got a predator

Go for the YFZ450 Bro, unless u decide to do some drag racing then go for the Raptor. I have ridden both and i liked the 450 way better + mush easyer to move in the air/ground unlike the raptor, i found my self having to work it once and awhile. [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

i'd say the 450 its 50pounds lighter and i heard its close to same hp but i don't know for sure. i say just buy a predator. i like raptors cuz the have reverse but they are 2 tippy. buy the 450 or wait for honda's new rumor quad or buy a predator. [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img]

Wait for the Honda 450 if you are an experienced rider. You will be pleasantly surprised...and so will your friends, as they watch you from behind your dust.

Re: Which is the best

I uncorked my new YFZ, jetted and removed the air box lid, It will SMOKE any raptor around, (unless HEAVILLY modified) and I do mean HEAVILLY, it doesent matter if your drag racing , moto cross or TT the YFZ is a Racer and the Raptor ISNT, I Loved my Raptor, it has its place , but for racing YFZ ALL THE WAY, if your just hot rodding , trail riding and some dunes , the Raptor has a smoother ride, THE YFZ IS FOR RACING!!!!!

Re: Which is the best

FYI, I have a Preditor, piped, modified air box, jetted, and K&N, the YFZ EATS IT!!!out of say 10 races the YFZ won 7 times the Polaris won 3, running out all the way, the YFZ tops out when the polaris hits 5th, so the polaris is faster but the Yamaha has more power, ( [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img]pulls harder)
